Query for interest: Eckor

Should I take it in my head to run a small PbP game set in my homebrew world of Eckor (more information in the menu to your left), would anyone be interested in playing? I have no real plan at the moment, just gauging interest and we'll go from there.

Of course I have interest. If you have too many players, I'll of course be willing to bow out, but I'd be very happy to play if you're running something.

I might be interested. What's floating around in your head?

I haven't read it yet and I'm already into it.

You could count me among the interested for the moment.

I don't have anything specific floating around in my head, save that I've been reading through my old work and I find it a shame that so much of the information is general instead of being fleshed out nicely. Setting a game in an area would help put some meat on the bones, and I figure that with a bit of effort, I could probably come up with an acceptable series of starting hooks to begin play.

Given your druthers, which nation/region in Eckor do you think might be most interesting to begin play in?

Darker

Ok, disclaimer. I haven't read it in years. But I seem to remember there was some kind of wasteland and crashed spaceship? That always struck me as pretty cool to have an adventure.

Midon or Mon-Gaar.

If by Eckor you mean "In a World of Dead People" then yeah, man. I am interested as fuck.

I like the idea of an urban campaign set in Free Haven.

Speaking of Free Haven, here's a long shot. MI and DDMW, once upon a time a couple of years ago, I emailed the two of you a description of Free Haven that included a hella detailed map. That map wouldn't happen to be lurking in the bowels of your email servers by chance, would it?

Hell, looks like I sent it to Darker and olshanski, too.

That rang enough of a bell that I thought it might have made it onto my Google Drive under "Submissions" that I had called dibs on to edit, way back when, but no dice.

Every month or so, I think about this proposal. Any progress? It's ok if you say no. It doesn't make you less of a man.

I shelved it as a thought when I took over as Executive Chef where I'm working. That said, my schedule is getting more and more free as I'm able to fix this or that and not have to be there every second of the day to put out dumpster fires, so it might be that I can unshelf the idea soon. Or not. I dunno what to expect when Legislative Session comes into effect. But we'll see.

Incidentally, I found that map I asked about earlier in the thread. I knew I'd made a CD backup and thought I'd lost it, but it turns out I'd misplaced it among the CD copies of really old PC games I redundantly keep around.

I'm still sitting over here waiting for In A World of Dead People to come back.

Much like the dead people themselves.

Indeed. That was still one of the most fun game settings I have played in. So, get some time and stop being a lazy fuck.

Geez, you work 18 hours a day and you act like you have no free time.
