A game (if all goes well, the first in a four-part series) based on the classic Sorcery series by Steve Jackson. YOU DO NOT NEED TO OWN OR HAVE READ THE SERIES TO PARTICIPATE!!!! The fabled Crown of Kings has been stolen by Birdmen and taken to the Mampang Fortress. A small force of adventurers must journey across Kakhabad to recover it before the Archmage can complete his sinister plan and become a threat to the whole world. YOU are one of those adventurers.
Feel free to message me with whatever questions you have.
Guidelines for characters:
-Your characters should be adventurers! I don’t expect a massive backstory, but a bit about why you got picked for the mission would be nice. It would be nice if we could get a mix of warriors and wizards.
-I’m not going to reject you because your character doesn’t fit within the lore. Sure, I’m using Steve Jackson for inspiration, but this is our story.
-This is going to be an action-focused story, so at least one of your starting strength and weakness cards should probably relate to combat or similar.
-This is not the place for your angst-ridden antiheroes, but nor is it a place for Tim the Gumballmancer. Go for someone heroic, but reasonably straight.
-I’d quite like you to make your own cards as much as possible. I never felt it was the narrator’s place to do it.
-If you haven’t read the books, that’s fine. About the only thing that might be important for character creation is that magic exists, so feel free to be a wizard, but it drains the life force of the caster.
What to expect from the game:
-I’m setting speed at weekly for the moment, but that may change based on how things are going.
-I’ll probably follow the books fairly closely.
-Please, please be at least somewhat committed. I’ve had so many games fall through due to players drifting off. This could be somewhat of a long haul (especially if we move on to the other three books).
