A loud tapping interrupts your thoughts. As you look up you see a man leaving the tavern, having nailed a poster to a board near the bar. No one else seems to take interest, so you wander over. It reads:

WANTED
Experienced men and women of talent for an expedition into the southern deserts.
Fame and fortune await!
Interested parties should meet at the Burning Rose inn in the city of Miragliano, Tilea, before the month is out.
Full share of all profits guaranteed!*

*Pending completion of expedition. No compensation for loss of life, limb, or soul. Equipment not supplied.


OOC: Since there seemed to be some interest in starting a new, and simple, RP, I thought I'd give this a go and see if we can get enough people to sign up!

Unless anyone has a better suggestion, we'll be using the SPAM system, as that seems to be easy for new RP'ers and it runs pretty smoothly. SPAM summary here: http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q232/Amun-Lothain/SPAM.jpg

War has broken out in Araby, and armies move south from Tilea, Estalia, Brettonia and even the Empire. A small group of enterprising individuals seeks to take advantage of the chaos. Tales of treasure from the Land of the Dead draw them south to make their fortunes.

Post your characters and any questions here!

While I'm interested, I feel leaving a 'simpler' RP spot for new players is a good idea. Hopefully you'll fill this up and et some new blood in the forum.

However, consider this my notification of interest. If you need a space filled, let me know. Otherwise, good luck!

Like PA I feel that spots in this RP should be given to RP newbies over RPing vets like myself. I would like to see this RP get off the ground and get more RPers on the site so in case you need a spot filled later to get this up and running this post is me saying I'd like to particiapate :D

You can give it another day or two, but I'd be surprised if we had too many sign up. It's always good to have a few veterans anyways so feel free to post up a character.

As far as I remember for equipment, we assume everyone has basic items, weapons and armour were the only things to worry about(heavy/light armour, sword, shield, bow, magic, etc., makes a difference for dice rolls). Anything else is up to you, I won't be keeping an inventory or bank accounts or anything. :P

Well, I haven't played an RPG on this forum in about 2 years so I guess I count as a newbie again? :D

If space is still available I will be willing to play.

By the way, what happened to my post count????? Last time I was on I was near 1000

Welcome back Kojiro :D

As for your post count, Off Topic posts no longer count towards your total and we changed sites. One or both of those is the reason, I assume

I don't think we're going to get too many new people signing up, so come on guys, get those characters posted so we can start! :wink:

If this is for newbies, then I am interested. Can someone send me a link with information on how to get started with the rules so I can design a character and hopefully join you guys and gals? (I read the SPAM intro, but if someone can direct me to a good intro site or book to learn all the details, I can design a character asap. I pick up rules quickly, and I've done a few RPGs wayyy back, but they were all intros with people walking me through the rules as we played, so if someone can direct me to a place to find the rules I will read up and if not this RPG, I will join another in the future).

Even if you don't want someone as new as I am, the links would be helpful so I can participate in the future (and let me know if you don't want someone this new participating, i wont be insulted! :D )

Well for starters thats not the SPAM intro thats the complete SPAM rule set. Therr are no books or sites for the SPAM system as the system was made by one of Ulthuan's loremasters for simple RPing on this site. :wink: The system is really quite simple and its not too hard to create a character. If you would like some examples to help you while making your character check out the Blood Ties OOC thread in the RP forum it has quite a few examples of SPAM character creations. If you need more help feel free to post questions in this thread and I'm sure a vet will be glad to help out :D

As for being too new don't feel bad as this RP was specifcally made to try to attract those unfamiliar to text based RPing, like yourself, to the site and provide them with a simple RP to get some expirience RPing without a complex system. :D

At some point I need to finish working on the Spam system. I've made a few changes to it. One of these days! (Yeah, right...)

jwg20- What cidracin said. :D It's a pretty simple system, but it still allows you to be creative. Just give it a go and think up a character, and we'll help you as we go along.

Calarion- We won't have to pay you royalties to use it, will we? :P I'd be interested to see what changes you've made though, it's my favorite method for these forum roleplays.

Of course not! The whole point was for it to be a simple system for Ulthuan. I never figured out a combat or wounds system that made me happy, though.

Half tempted to make a "Spam System" thread for all of us to figure out the rules.

Ok well I have not done a real role play on this site before nor have I used this system but it sounds like fun. Practically though how is it played? What would I be doing and how would I be doing it?

Um, is this thread still active? Because if it is I would definitely like to have a go! If not, please sigh in an annoyed fashion and post telling me you did so.

Same here but i think someone will have to explain the SPAM system alittle more as is just looks like a bunch of random numbers and skills that i am not sure what to do with. I would want to create a 'rogue' sort of character possibly Elven with mastery of the Bow and two hand weapons light armour and something along the lines of lockpicking etc.

Edit: I know this is kinda an old thread but i am hoping it will become something as i really want to be part of some kind of RP. Please Amun! [-o<

Silly Dragon, I am currently writing an RP. Would you like me to reserve you a place?

Also, regarding SPAM, it seems to me to be just free-post with more dice.

If you could that would be awesome! :mrgreen: Any hints as to what it is about? (Warhammer based or something like Tolkien etc?).

Warhammer based. It'll be mostly for noobs, but having a veteran on board would be useful to correct me if I get anything wrong.
