Current AD&D was more or less 1.5e. That's not *totally* accurate but it kinda evokes what happened. I've not done D&D in a hot minute, tho.

To anyone waiting on posts from me: as some of y'all know, my place of work minorly caught on fire on Tuesday and I had to deal with that. Literally. Anyways. That's why I'm slow lately.

As a Texan, the proper spelling is "Y'all" not "ya'll." It is a contraction of "You all" not "Ya all." That's all I have to say on any of this.

I'm happy to announce that, illness-wise, I seem to be out of the woods. Thanks for your patience, everyone!


Yo, what up. I'm The Grundlesnart.

What's a grundlesnart? Me. I'm a grundlesnart.

I've been RPing for like 16 years, since back when Yahoo Groups was still a thing. So yeah, I'm an old fart.

@Ratio,@Zoey Boey, please move your characters to the Characters tab, bith of y'all are formally accepted!
This is a bump, and an update!

I have two characters so far that I am accepting:
Salamander and Button.

@Ratio's Salamander and @Zoey Boey's B. Button.

I'm hoping to drum up a bit more support for this RP!
So, what kind of gender politics do you want the RP to have slash is everyone comfortable with the RP having (that will be the only deciding factor on whether my subjugation-obsessed neo-bronze-age despot is male, female, or other)

If you think anyone in a flat-out survival situation in a hostile jungle beset on all sides by threats both mundane and bizaare, has time in their busy day of trying to make it to tomorrow to spend time thinking about gender politics.....

Basically, I don't care. No NPCs will, either. So... do whatever.
Lemme just give this a bumpity BOOMP
I feel like this might be a bit silly for the RP, but would it make sense for my character to have some Conan books that they use as a kind of religious text?

Also I love how you've taken tabletop rules (Definitely Apocalypse World, possibly The Burning Wheel) and opened them up and streamlined them for classical forum play. I see what you're doing there.

1. I see no reason why not, though I might say to not do CONAN specifically but rather "obvious Conan Reference Comic" so that we have more flexibility.

2. It's just AW. I didn't even really streamline the rules so much as remove them and keep the aesthetic. The guild is great for many things. Tabletop play is not among them. In any case, thanks!

@Dark Cloud

I somehow feel like that won't be a unique occupation in the Post Apocalypse.

Though I would suggest, based on this very limited information, not making a character who you'd not at least *begrudgingly* keep around. This is a story which involves a community. Most communities deal harshly with murderers, even in the post-apocalypse. Having fewer hands on deck when the population is already small is bad news bears.

Now, a gun-for-hire? That's a murderer who's USEFUL, so you might tolerate him as a necessary evil. A town guard with a penchant for going overboard? Also probably a necessary evil in the post-apocalypse.

Has your heart always contained this wanderlust? It is true now, for sure. You can hardly stop the under-the-skin itch that draws you away from this tiny town and its tiny ambitions and its tiny curiosity.

The only thing that seems to scratch that itch is browsing the shelves of The Last Page, the local bookstore. It was on one of these trips that your life changed, though you didn't know it at the time.

You found a book. Leather-bound, ancient, and beautiful. It was unmarked by any pricetags or barcodes, and set into the center of the cover was a necklace. A length of crystal no thicker than a ballpoint pen's ink tube, set into a simple fixture on a chain of blackened gold. You must have been so surprised to find such an incredible book that you were seeing things. Because you could swear, when you touched that crystal, you felt a heartbeat.

Little did you know what would happen when you got that book home and opened its cover. Little did you know what you'd been chosen for, and what that key represented. The power it would give you. The wonders it would show you. The places it would take you.

Nor did you know the powers that would want it. The people that would seek it. The monsters that would claim it.

So What The Hell Is This?

This is a modern fantasy-ish, magepunk-ish, mysticism-inspired RP where your character, a young woman who longs for more in her life, gets her wish granted to a much, much greater degree than she bargained for.

It is weird, and I want to spoil as little as possible. The less I say, the weirder it will feel.

This is designed for MxF or FxF, with my partner providing a female protagonist. I could do a male protagonist, but it would take some rewrites. In any case I'll be taking on more of a GM role as far as "playing the entire world," but I do want a partner who brings a character that will proactively interact with the world.

So What Will Happen?

Your character will be dropped into a very strange and expansive world. There will be exploration of exotic locales, cultures, and peoples. There will be political maneuverings among ascendant beings. There will be enlightenment, achieved through violence. Royalty, Magic, Mastery, Wisdom, Ascendance, and Blood.

Oh, and a lot of weird shit and unexpected takes on fantasy concepts.

What Should I Do?

-Bring a character who is ambitious and has a desire to explore.
-Be ready to geek out with me OOC, because we're gonna make something kickass and worth geeking for.
-Send me a PM.
-Smut Policy: My default is to go through the whole uh... proceedings. Lemme know if that's not your thing. All in all? Smut will not be a focus. But it might happen.
-MOST IMPORTANTLY: Keep being sexy.
