ok guys let me know what you think about this idea... i am still thinking of characters... but mainly it is evil vs. good >:)

the "bad guy" in the story will be someone along the lines of a palladin... you know a goody goody ;)

the "good guys" will be anything from lichs, lessor demons, villians (human) and others of the sort..

suggestions would be greatly appreciated... what do you guys think??

Sounds like an interesting idea. But if the "players" are going to be a single cohesive group - make sure you have a damn good reason for them to continue to work together, rather than attempt to kill one another.

(By the way, the virtuous good guy is a "Paladin.")

yeah i know i misspelled it... was in a rush and didn't use spell checker... you know i'm normally awesome with spelling :D

as for why they are together... there could be a few different ways to take this... either

1)they are all in it for some sort of selfish gain - seems realistic
2) they are lower classes , so in other words they aren't these super powerful entities yet so they have to rely on each other - which could help to establish some good story lines with attitude
3) they are being pushed by a greater force than them... like sauron (sp?)

i am not too sure about the "human" element yet... but i am hoping for some characters that are conflicts themselves as well...

anything else? i'm still putting some thought into it at least the general idea/background... like you all know i am new to this ;)

A setting idea would be nice to go off of. Forgotten Realms, Dragonlance, Middle-earth, Hyboria, Marvel's Earth, DC's Earth, Oerth.. blah blah blah? For any real idea to come out - a general setting idea and timeline should be necessary.

There are huge differences between, say, a 12th-century-ish quasi-Earth, and a 21st-century-ish Forgotten Realms, and those are both different from a 17th-century-ish Eberron.

So you could cover that kind of stuff.




1)they are all in it for some sort of selfish gain - seems realistic


That still begs the question of WHY all the different characters are all necessary. And -why- they're staying together. I mean - let's say there's six people - what's to stop one of them from killing another, or from five of them killing the sixth. No matter what the rationale for the group -getting- together, you need a reason for them to STAY together. A reason why it's smarter/necessary/more beneficial to not betray one another.


For example, maybe two of the characters are related. No matter how evil you are, you don't want to kill your own sister - and you won't allow anyone else to kill her either. So killing her would mean that person is effectively tearing the entire group apart.. but you need to establish similar relationships and rationales between all characters to keep the group as one cohesive unit and not a mismatched group of people conniving against one another.

So are you thinking that the goodie goodies will be NPCs, or are you looking for folks to play both sides?

not too sure on that... but depending on how the story runs they might just be NPC ... i am going to figure out the setting/quest or whatever is needed the next day or two and then hopefully get this started since there is some interest..

Well, not one of the aforementioned 'good' people, but if you can handle a newb, I would be interested, and would give me a reasonable excuse to bring out another of my characters who has not seen the light of day in a long time.
