Every now and then, I run an adventure online for the fine folks on these forums. My goal is to play with people I don't know personally and with whom I've not gamed before so I can get some feedback and share ideas with gamers outside my "circle."
Welcome then to the Island of the Frog:
Normally, one can smell a bullywug pirate ship long before it appears on the horizon.
You stand at the pinnacle of the Temple of Bazim-Gorag, an ancient ziggurat at the highest point of the Island of the Frog, higher even than the canopy of the treacherous jungle that covers all. From here, you can see the flaming wreckage of your ship in the bay, the overlarge bullywug galleon, The Crapaud, sitting low in the water nearby, its cannons still smoking. Crossing the stretch of sea between the ship and the shore are three long skiffs being swiftly rowed by a motley crew of juju zombies, led no doubt by the notorious Captain Burrp and accompanied by his elite frogmen.
The entrance to the ziggurat’s interior is a gaping stone maw lined with sharp obsidian teeth. There is naught but darkness down Bazim-Gorag’s gullet – darkness and the Great Treasure said to rest in the belly of the temple.
What do you do?
I'm looking for one more player. The game is this Saturday, 3 pm till 7 pm Eastern. Characters are 4th-level and I'll send interested parties the character generation guidelines upon request. We use Gametable, Hamachi, and Skype to play. I have a document explaining how to use each of these, also available upon request.
This is a location-in-motion adventure and as such will have plenty of shared storytelling and player choice. You'll want to bring a suitcase full of "Yes, and..." to the game. Having run this adventure for another group before, I'm eager to see what a new group does with it and what new directions it might take. An LIM of this size probably takes 3 to 5 sessions to complete. You don't need to be at every session, but I thought I'd tell you what kind of commitment you might expect to see it through.
Current players: warrl, Noctaem, CorranHornIsAwesome. I think we're looking at a warlord or shaman, ranger, and fighter, respectively.
Who'd like to be Victim #4?
