Darkness Falls OOC

Post by veraka » Wed Dec 08, 2010 6:40 am

Alright, so I've been munching on a new plot/storyline for Veraka and now, having enough ideas and ppl that are interested, I've decided to go ahead and start it up.

Ok on to [u:3e1hvdsm]Campaign Details[/u:3e1hvdsm]

Ok first off, this plot of mine is going to be a loose Campaign[/size:3e1hvdsm]. That being said, I will assume the role of DM and control most of the aspects of the RP setting and NPC reactions, etc.
I will, however, allow some free actions/player DMing from others when 1 of 2 things happens; 1 would be when I go around and ask for someone to DM something or a specific part that the party would go through, or whatever or 2: would be if/when a player within the RP/Campaign PM's me and ASKS[/size:3e1hvdsm] me if they may do whatever action they are wishing to pull off, and I [b:3e1hvdsm]OK[/b:3e1hvdsm] it.


[u:3e1hvdsm]Player Details[/u:3e1hvdsm];
Ok, first and foremost I'd like to emphasize, and stress 2 major factors.
First; [b:3e1hvdsm]This is a CLOSED RP!![/size:3e1hvdsm][/b:3e1hvdsm] If a person wishes to join it, they [b:3e1hvdsm]MUST[/size:3e1hvdsm][/b:3e1hvdsm] PM me and obtain my approval prior to posting IC within the thread.
My reasoning for this is quite simple; when an RP or campaign becomes too chalk full of players, it becomes a [b:3e1hvdsm]HUGE[/b:3e1hvdsm] pain in the ass to keep track of everyone's reactions and what not; that being said, I am Limiting the MAXIMUM number of [b:3e1hvdsm]PLAYERS[/b:3e1hvdsm] within this Campaign to be [b:3e1hvdsm]8[/size:3e1hvdsm][/b:3e1hvdsm].

Second, I am asking [b:3e1hvdsm]ALL[/b:3e1hvdsm] players who join this Campaign to please be able to post on a frequency of at least once every two days; [b:3e1hvdsm]UNLESS[/b:3e1hvdsm] a player either PM's me or posts to the OOC thread that they'll be absent for a few days for whatever reason.
I know that this sounds a little stingy on my part, but I do like to know if someone is gonna be absent, so that I may slow down the campaign a little or adjust for their absence.

Alright, now that that's out and on the table, I've got a few ppl whom have either asked me already or I've talked to and they've shown an interest in joining this campaign, and/or have obtained my permission to join in.
Those folks are: Inrii, Drakin, Zekafae, Aylstra, Luexena(with possibly Calabask) and Zanathie.



Next, [u:3e1hvdsm]Campaign setting and player/char details[/u:3e1hvdsm]:

This Campaign/RP will take place starting within the Dalelands, specifically, in a small town near Shadowdale.

I've no clue as to the timeframe; but I will say this. For those whom I've RPed with, this setting will take place [b:3e1hvdsm]AFTER[/b:3e1hvdsm] [u:3e1hvdsm][b:3e1hvdsm]Shores of Despair[/b:3e1hvdsm][/u:3e1hvdsm] by about 6 years.

The focus of this campaign is more of a personnal one than a team goal or large scale "war" setting that you'd find in most RPG games like NWN, or Dragon Age. The focus will revolve around Veraka and his struggle with his inner demons, (kinda like Drizzt and his struggle with the Hunter inside of him) with a dual quest/focus of finding his wife, Neriah, and his now-born son(name to come). The players of the party will encounter Veraka somewhere along the line and the story will go from there.
(Can't give away too many details,

This will be a story-based Campaign setting, so I [b:3e1hvdsm]WILL[/b:3e1hvdsm] writing the parts up as I go along with it, the major ones at least. That being said, some thing will be set in stone and some will not. Also, please note that within this quest, Veraka [b:3e1hvdsm]WILL[/b:3e1hvdsm] go through some darker moments, so that should be expected within the IC thread.

For roles within this Campaign, I'm not too picky on them, just that is at least 2 healers and two spellcasters within the group. If one wants to put their own role into effect, that's fine, just as long as I know exactly what it is that that role does for the party, and how it works.

For those whom are interested in joining; PM me first about it and include the following:
1:Character(s) name
2:Race
3:Class or classes
4:rough idea of abilities, (like feats, spell ability, and spells in general) as well as the kit (equipment) that your char possesses on themselves.
5:position within the group/party.
6:any other pertinent information that you think I should know about your char.


Ok, [u:3e1hvdsm]Rules[/u:3e1hvdsm] are as follows;
1:[b:3e1hvdsm]Since this is a Campaign, I expect that everyone has read or is familiar with Campaign ways of posting; if not look at the rules posted by our high priestess, Shir'le, located [url=viewtopic.php?p=21833#21833:3e1hvdsm]here[/url:3e1hvdsm][/b:3e1hvdsm]

2:[b:3e1hvdsm]If anyone has a problem, talk to me before going and getting PO'd at another player for whatever reason. I've been on CoE long enough to learn that if people talk things through, it'll get settled. ALSO, since I'll be the acting DM, let me sort through the problems.[/b:3e1hvdsm]

3:[b:3e1hvdsm]Please for the sake of the Platinum Dragon himself, be polite to others; no one likes a snotty *&%$#; so yeah; just be nice to
the other players.[/b:3e1hvdsm]

4:[b:3e1hvdsm]If anyone has an idea, and wants to see it put into the setting, for the Goddess's sake, just talk to me. I'm a pretty reasonable, and laid back person. I won't bite, unless I have to. I'm always more than willing to work with someone to get something done, so, don't be afraid to ask me about something.[/b:3e1hvdsm]

More possibly to add to this, but right now, that's what I've got.

Alright, so to start off, first is first; I've got everyone who's posted up what I asked down as part of the Campaign. So if anyone else wants to join in, please PM me first before doing so, otherwise I [b:wxhnb721]WILL[/b:wxhnb721] have the post removed from the RP thread.

I'd also like to point out a the 'M' rating I've thrown up. There will be some occasionally graphic scenes or writings that I post up, as well as the minor sexual humor/minor scenes, etc, etc.
My point is that this RP/Campaign is not your typical dark bad guy, hero-fly's and saves the day' RP. I intend to make this RP as morally questioning and dark as humanly possible.
This is a story-fed Campaign, and as such, I [b:wxhnb721]do[/b:wxhnb721] intend to make it more realistic, in terms of evilness and diabolical deeds.
That said, I [b:wxhnb721]am[/b:wxhnb721] saying that this campaign is gonna be 'M' rated for all that fancy shenanigans that can possibly go along with a dark and sinister story-line.

That said, I am making this the OOC thread for Darkness Falls. So hope everyone has fun in it, :D

Graphic?! Sexual?! Dark and evil?! :devil: Oh dear, don't let Palax find out- he might faint!!! :angel: Seriously, this will be fun for me to explore more of Sir Stuffypants' personality, and could be a good excuse for him to take some (friendly) chiding from the bard....

from the looks of it, half the folks are 'darker' and the other half are not...so its a good mix...and apparently Veraka tends to finds friends who are of the [i:28jc6ul9]rogue [/i:28jc6ul9]types...shady and stealthy
