So hello there, I've been inactive for a little while as I finished up my college degree, but now I've graduated and have lots of free time. I've wanted to start a D&D thread for a while and now that I have the time I can start working on that. I'd like to gather interest for a young-age RP, at least starting that way with regards to a fantasy-medieval kingdom. The thread would be ROLEPLAY-FOCUSED but use the mechanics of fighting and magic-use within D&D to keep it fair and more randomized. As i'm suggesting the idea it seems only fair that I volunteer to be the DM as well. I have a story in mind and can lead it using a tutor within the setting, while performing checks and such. The RP element of my idea is for the characters chosen by everyone else to start at a slightly young age (so stat's have a negative modifier) and progress them over a long period of time. The setting would be new squires, mage trainee's, and the like, under a knight errant who treats them like a small family. The technical part would be for the sake of determining fairness, helping randomize actions, and creating a guarantee for diversity within the group. (I don't know about anyone else, but for a while I was on a site where every other friggin' person was a half-demon, wolf, dragon, cyclops son of the devil with magic missile casting eyeballs, and it's just not fun! At least for me, it's hardly fun when such modifiers are just given and not even earned, and the great quantity of them made a regular human the rarest form on the site [which was me -.-]) I would leave it fairly open ended and try to reduce the need to check-back with the DM (me) on hits and such, I might just give the variables within the post and let you respond within your post with your score. If it became a problem that we felt someone might not be honest or was simply doing too well, I could manage the situation or just use the cruel gods' powers to smite them back into line <_<. Anyway, that's my idea so please let me know what you think and if anyone has any interest, questions, or concerns. I would like to state that I would like people who are fairly active, and able to post at least once a day with good detail. I would not expect us to be much more active than that but to make sure it moves along at a decent pace and others are not left waiting, this is what I would like to aim for. That being said, the detail would also be to make the most out of each individual post since this will still be a roleplay focus and there's not much to be said for 2-3 sentence posts once a day. Inner monologues also help me know how I can better shape a situation ^^.
