Dungeon Fantasy: Archbridge Adventures

From OttGaming
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a GURPS Dungeon Fantasy game, played online using OpenRPG.

Game Environment

We play on OpenRPG Veav 1 server, in the GURPS Dungeon Fantasy room. We use OpenRPG for chat, dice rolling, and character sheet maintenance. This is our "Virtual tabletop"
We also use MapTools v1.3b50 as our mapping/miniature program, because OpenRPG sucks donkey balls for maps.

Note that we will be following the updates to the Development branch of MapTools (v1.3bXX) as it updates, until 1.3 becomes the Stable branch. I am investigating the possibility of abandoning OpenRPG entirely once MapTools 1.3 reaches Stable release.

Next Sessions

February 17, 2009 currently set as our next game session.
This will be the first session using the new version of MapTools.

Tools and Resources

  • OpenRPG - you need this to play.
  • Maptool 1.2b32 - you also need this to play.
  • Mayhem Gaming - I get most of my miniatures here.
  • E23 - Steve Jackson Games' online store, where you can get the books.
  • Random resource: the equation for finding the cost C of a Dungeon Fantasy Power Item of power P is C = 10P^2 + 40P. And now you know.

The Setting

The adventurers work out of Archbridge, which is the last major city on the Western Trade Route. East of Archbridge lie the civilized lands of the kingdom, where people live peaceful lives lacking in adventure and excitement. West, however, is broken country filled with the remnants of fallen civilizations, the experiments of mad wizards, and roving bands of savage humanoids. Archbridge is a common base point for delvers of all stripes, and home to several temples, a small Druidic grove, smithies, shops, a wizards' college, a thriving Thieves' Guild, and everything else delvers need to equip themselves, rest, recuperate, and celebrate between successful trips.

Things to do In Town

Who We Are
