New Campaign?
« on: January 21, 2011, 10:07:40 PM »
I would like to start a new campaign here in the house of bombdil.  Hrcho and Abbott already expressed a desire to be involved.  Here are the rules:

A play by post rpg is a big collaborative story.  
make it tolkeinish. (this is the most important rule.  We will be participating in a LOTR RPG, not D&D.  There is a time and place for everything  ;))
post at least once a week.
no super heroes (literally.  there is only 1 super man. unless you count capt. marvel then there is 1 and 1/2.)
use parenthesis () to indicate ingame and out of game (I'm thinking, or saying this out of game, blah blah blah.)
italics for characters thoughts.
"quotes for spoken words" obviously :)
more can be added since this is new to me and odd situations may arise.

Campaign Idea:

*clears throat*

The third age of middle earth will always be remembered as the age in which Mithrandir completed his quest.  He has been forever remembered as the only of the 5 Istar of Arda to accomplish his task.  Sarumon had been corrupted, Radagast had become disinterested, and Pallando & Alatar had vanished.  Or so it was recorded in Gondor.

Radagast the Brown had been accused by Gandalf as disinterested.  How could an Istar of Arda be concerned about the well-being of a single hobbit when the fate of middle earth was being decided in Far-Harad?  Word of Alatar's plight reached Radagast on the wings of a sparrow.  The Istar in the South tried in vain to stop Palando, but it was too late.

No matter what Gandalf was planning in the Rivendell, it would all be for naught if Pallando succeded in unifying the tribes of Far-Harad.  To make matters worse, the far travelling Pallando had unearthed an artifact from ages past to unify the scattered tribes.  With the combined forces of Sauron, The Easterlings, Saruman, The Haradrim and the Far-Haradrim lead by Pallando and his ancient force, no power on Middle-Earth could hold back the return of the Dark Lord.

Radagast had to find heroes.  Free folk worthy of the task of breaking Pallando's influence.  The Free-Haradrim were Middle-Earth's only line of defense against a foe they had not met.  Radagast needed: The Unsung Heroes.

That is my pitch.  A quest in the 3rd age thru Harad into the arid Far-Harad to match wits with Radagast, Alatar, Pallando, and an evil from the ancient world.

What balrog. And how did he get there.

These need explanations.

I'm not giving it away now.  It's part of the the campaign.  But if the idea of a "rouge" balrog from the second age is really bothersome to other players, we can use another monster or villian, an Olog-hai perhaps.

So as of this moment I am under the impression that

Kenddrick
hrcho
abbott
mr. lurtzy?
and myself will be participating that's 5, this is a good number.  I'll start a new thread to place your characters (I don't want them to mix with the other character threads in order to avoid confusion.) then I'll start up an Unsung Heroes thread.

I'd rather it didn't involve balrog, but only because it would be too similar to Saruman's Legacy, an older RPG quest. Maybe a regiment of trolls or some kind of spawn of Shelob or Ungoliant.

So, it seems balrog is out.  Fine by me, middle-earth is a large place with lots of creatures.  Pallando will enlist the aid of something else. ;)

You guys thought about doing this on the chat, D&D style?

the chat was cool.  for me personally, a play by post thread is going to work the best.  if everyone is opposed to it, well, then I guess the unsung heroes thread will die and we can all move on with out lives ;)
