Interest Thread: MnM 3E - Thorpocaverse Fantasy Game

Post by Thorpocalypse » Sat Aug 11, 2018 3:06 am

I started running an MnM campaign for one of my FTF groups a couple of years back but we've been focusing on the Star Wars RPG mostly during our game sessions. We've been rotating GM duties and now it's my turn and I flipped the game back to MnM. Firstly, because it's my first love among RPGs and second, I am too lazy to learn the Star Wars system enough to run it. ;)

That being said, it got me itching to run a game here as well. Now that I'm pretty much down to one Young Thorpocalypse to run around in the fall it shouldn't be as hectic so I think I can commit to it until the holiday season when things will probably go on hiatus or REALLY slow down for a bit. But before I did too much planning, I figured I'd better see if there was enough interest to do so.

It would be set in the J-Mart Fantasy: World of Gloriant setting. I haven't completely decided on PL but I'm probably going with PL5/75 pts and/or PL6/60 pts to start. There would be a fair amount of House Rules and a few character limitations in regards to race and "spells per day" limits but nothing too restrictive.

My goal would be to kick off the game around the last week of August, if not a little sooner. If things go well and the Odinthorpe continues his healing, I might consider also running a variation on the Silver Storm arc of Emerald City Knights, too. I'm sure a lot of you have already gone through it or read through it, so there won't be a lot of surprises but it's still a pretty fun campaign.

Let me know your thoughts.

I'm interested in fantasy M&M pretty much always due to the unique challenges it presents for building! Bring it on!

You got me at "Fantasy Game".I'd probably play a variation of my Dungeons&Dragons 4e Dwarf Ranger(yes,they actually have those in a Dwarven Society,they're called Tunneler's and their 'Clan' Emblem is an Attacking Honey Badger....) named Berend Talnoth...

I am intrigued.... I'll look over the Gloriant setting.

The role-playing challenges could be fun. Thank goodness the building of characters will be straight forward.

Totally straight-forward. Except...

No characters with vowels in the their names.

No odd numbered attribute totals.

We'll be rolling to see how many lines you get to post each time.

And all players must pass a Sharknado trivia test in order to be accepted.

Totally straight-forward. ;)

I will be working up the templates for my races if the game goes. I'd like the racial powers for each non-human race to be pretty static based on the races I've posted builds for so far. I'm not beholden to classes, really. I'd like people to have themes for their characters that might kinda sorta resemble some sort of class but if you want to be spell casting monk, or a cryomancer brawler, have at it.

And the House Rules there are not quite done but they will be by the time I drop a recruiting post if the interest continues. I might even draw up some kind of map of the world (kinda) and the area the PCs will be starting in, which for all my games is the thorp of Thorpe in month of Smarch. 8-)

*Sharknado*
:lol:

I'd be interested, and I'll take a look over your setting to and get the jist of how it all works. I've had a few concepts and statted out characters for M&M that were fantasy oriented, might pull one of them up.

Not to toot my own horn, but I'm pretty adept at Campaign Cartographer. I could offer to help you with that if desired.
