Open games and recruitments

Postby M0rtimer » Wed Mar 13, 2013 11:37 am

Hello, and welcome to the open games and recruitment thread! Here you can find games looking for either new players, or games which are at all times, free to join or participate in. If you have a game that falls in either of these categories, please post to put my attention on it. :)

Open games:
These games are at all times free to post in, or free to sign up in:
Civilization IV
Myrmen
Ruined kingdom
Rebuild
Quickdeath clan
Goblins Minesweepers
Escape!
Memories
Haiku
Odd Statements
Riddles
Treasure Run
Capture the Flag Always recruiting, new games every 2-4 weeks.
Thuntworld Serial Killers (TWSK) (opens roughly once every week!)
I probably missed a bunch, sorry!

I think the minesweeper one actually isn't free to join this time. And no quick reply button! :O
Games I'm in
The island as Shackled by many
The goblin adventure league as Steals the tequilla (Free for all to join and wait for a quest/game)
PTU trinity isle as Drake the researcher of pokemon and the occult

It is free, but you'll have to wait until next game to play.

Hmmm, looks like I have to check other forum parts once in a while, too.

The Minesweepers is a free to sign up game, but new players will only be able to join the next round.

However, if at least 10 player applies, I can start a parallel round for them earlier.

Nice to see my idea became a whole subsection. When I posted the thread first I was looking for a new player for my Curse of the Gold. Since it has not been put on the list, can you please do that, Mortimer?

BACKSTORY
Trina's mother was the Elven maiden Deanaria "Gilderleaf". Her village was raided by orcs and in the ensuing battle she was taken prisoner by the Orc Chieftain. No doubt a fate far worse than death was in store for her. But the orcs had not only raided the elven community but also the human communities as well. So it was a great as great a surprise the her as to the orcs when Deanaria was rescued by a young, human, country, boy-hero named Fenn 'The Jr.' {Winters}.

Fenn 'The Jr' "Winters" was nothing but Special! He was the bastard son of a pretty unsavory woodsman and nare-do-well thuggish man named Finnagin 'Stonesson' called 'Fenn' for short. Fenn 'The Jr's' mother was never named by Fenn 'The Sr.' As further insult and disregard for his son he gave him the surname of "Winter" the season he was born. A grave insult as it was traditional to name bastard children with no family of their own after the season they were born in. Fenn 'The Sr.' was known to be a mean unfriendly cheating sort involved in all sort of criminal activity. Fenn 'The Sr' father, Stonnard, went off to serve in the militia and was killed by a bandit's arrow leaving his sickly wife, Marilyn, to raise Fenn on her own - already a rebellious sort, until consumption took her life when Fenn hit age 16. Fenn 'The Sr.' just went from bad to worse from then on.

However, Fenn 'The Jr.' was his complete opposite, kind, considerate and loyal if a bit lackadaisical when it came to doing chores or serious work. In that, Fenn 'The Jr' was amazing; because despite how much his father abused, bullied, and beat him the boy grew up strong and courageous. One of those rare people with a heart of gold! A true hero!

By about the time Fenn 'The Jr.' was 18 he had earned the reputation of a reliable - if a bit of a playful young man who was always willing to help those in need. Feen Jr. was getting on as a huntsman and tracker of sorts when the Orc raids began. The village of Oakhorst was attacked and several children were taken by the orc raiders. Without any thought of his own safety Fenn Jr. armed with his longsword and longbow tracked them down and attacked! His intention - to save the children or die trying! To his surprise he found... the elven maiden Daenaria as well.

Though they did not realize it at first... it was love at first sight between them. Fenn rescued the children and Daenaria returning the children to Oakhorst and then volunteering to take Daenaria the long journey back to the safety of her people. Fenn's shy, gentlemanly, country honor and his unyielding courage and self-sacrifice in the face of danger charmed the elven maiden's heart. On the long journey back to her people Fenn time and again faced certain death in her defense to protect her and treated her like a queen in politeness and respect asking nothing in return.

Daenaria shared one night of intimacy with the simple, pure-hearted country hero and he professed his undying love for her.

Eventually Fenn got her back home and they both knew they would likely never see each other again. A sad parting but one that was expected.

One night of love was all it took. Soon it was obvious Daenaria was with child. The elven elders of her village were perturbed at the prospect of a half-breed among them. But Daenaria was adamant about keeping the child of her and Fenn's love.

Trinaephalaryeth was born one summers day at dawn. Daenaria named her 'little-wandering-sunshine'. She had her mother's beautiful blonde hair and her father's vibrant green eyes. As she grew up most of the elves ignored her but she wandered the elven community watching and observing all the time. Never actually speaking a word to anyone save her mother and even her only a word or two at a time until she was 8.

Then as if the flood gates of curiosity opened up she began speaking constantly asking about... everything! As it turned out 'Trina' was VERY bright and gifted intellect; perceiving and conceiving things far in advance of her maturity. She had inherited her father's boldness as well as his kind and heroic heart. Trina sat in and watched as the young elven warriors were trained in swordplay and archery, she sneaked into the lecture halls where the young apprentice magicians did their studies. Trina listened and learned.

On festival day - when all elves competed in games of skill and art; martial, magical and mundane she always competed and though she was mostly ignored - slowly but surely her antics and determination earned her a level of respect and admiration for the skill and craft she showed. The elves did not keep her from competing for to do so would be to acknowledge her presence something few were willing to do. But slowly indeed some elves began to treat her as part of the community waiting to see what next wonder she might perform!

Last year Trina startled everyone by displaying martial and magical skill in the competition! Earning her the recognition of one of the more famous competitors a Trealanthalas 'Brightstar' a wizard of no small skill.

It was then that the elders felt some action was needed.

But Daenaria intervened telling her beloved daughter that it was time for her to seek knowledge of her father's world and that the elders needed time o consider her presence among the elven community. Daenaria implied that Trina's absence might prove that she has had no ill effect upon the community in fact a positive effect upon the community. In this case Absence could make the heart grow fonder.

Trina agreed. She was indeed curious about the world of men and what her father was like. So she set out into the world somewhat seeking her father and understanding of what her human culture had to offer.

Hi phoenix. Welcome to the games forum!

I currently don't think I have a game that you can join and play as what you want, but look at the other games, they are fun too.

I will be opening a recruiting for a D&D game I'm planning in the following month or so, look at this recruitment sub-forum once in a while and you will see it one day, and many other games.

Well this IS the Goblins site.. I'm flexible what would be an appropriate character?

I can make a goblin.. likely a paladin if I could...

Unless your meaning that your games are at a juncture that a new player would not be appropriate.

Look into Recruitment subforum. There are games, that are still recruiting.

Speaking of recruiting games, can someone add my game to the first post? Into the open games section.

Actually, I currently run 1 and a half games, one of which is open for all always. (The full one, not the half)

To my D&D game - I'm not sure yet what will be allowed, but I can say that I will be pretty flexible with allowed races. It's yet early to talk about it.

Interesting.. looked at some of the open games. I'm surprised some are so... esoteric? I expected more 3rd Edition D&D type character games. Perhaps all the "traditional" {character/player - DM/Dungeon Master} D&D games are full?

Nah.. we tend to like games that are more "open" and with simpler rules, to make Play by post more fluit... so that things dot take forever... (DnD... while posible on Forum.... works a bit slow... and even worse if rules are dissagreed on..) but there are a few DnD and a WoD game going one....

There are a few of those around but they already have players. You can follow the if you'd like to, and there might be a spot at some point in some of the games (players dropping out or other circumstances allowing a player more).

People are also trying out their own rulesets for games creating another experience than the usual D&D game. There's actually more of these kind of games than D&D games on the forum. :)

Or what LayF said.
Games I'm in
The island as Shackled by many
The goblin adventure league as Steals the tequilla (Free for all to join and wait for a quest/game)
PTU trinity isle as Drake the researcher of pokemon and the occult
