I finally finished my homebrewed Sands of Shurax mod for Tabletop Simulator and would like to use it to facilitate a forum playthrough of it. Looking for I would say 3-4 players, I can be one of them if we don’t get a full set otherwise but it’s always easier for me to just facilitate. This may or may not be a great fit - in particular, most of the direct player specific decision making is done in combat, which is probably going to take forever if we do it turn by turn - but heck with it. If you don’t know the game, lots of context here (and rules): Volume III
Here’s my thinking: each volunteer should pick a role from this album:
(There are also Hexclusive Roles which I am ruling out pre-emptively as they are deliberately substantially stronger than everything else and work better for a 1-2 player game.) Ideally, we’ll want a spread of different role types, although I don’t think any specific party composition is really mandatory to succeed, so if you have alternates in mind based on composition, that’s worth posting as well. Once everyone has picked a Role, I’ll randomly select a (nonHexclusive/Rare) Race, Trait, and Aspect for each character and you can name them. (You could also just name them right away - depends on whether you want to take the Race/Trait/Aspect into account).
I’ll post each turn and solicit decision making about direction and any other choices involved in that turn. If combat starts, I’ll ask players to discuss a general battle plan, including how much energy and any consumable items they are comfortable using, and then I’ll play it out and see what the results are. We might zoom in and do turn-by-turn for boss fights, as they are both scarier and more involved.
Sound good? Who’s interested? @ArmandoPenblade , I know we talked about this on Discord earlier…
Oh, also, Roles with the kinda toothy triangle shape in the lower right hand corner are the new ones to Sands of Shurax, if you want to prioritize the new ones.
