Chronicles of Adamus part 2: Looking for Play-By-Text Guest DMs



  Many years ago I had the idea of using Ruins of the Undercity to run a solo D&D game in front of the camera. There didn't seem to be a lot of interest in it and rightfully so, someone sort of playing D&D alone in front of the camera without the human interaction normally found in tabletop RPG storytelling would probably be a dull affair.

  But in the video I did mention I would try to find a way to invite people to help in telling this story and the idea of interaction between RPG bloggers is one I've always enjoyed. See the still unfinished dungeon I posted also a few years ago where I invited anyone to fill in the rooms. (I've noticed since then that more popular blogs had already done similar things.)

  Anyway, one thing I've noticed a lot of people do enjoy reading on RPG blogs are game recaps, so I finally know what to do with Adamus, the character I rolled in the original video; Every so often when the schedule allows for it and if I find anyone interested in trying this out, I'll log on to a dice roller chat room on https://rolz.org/ with a guest DM. There the Guest DM will run the game as I play Adamus via text chat for a previously specified amount of time. When that time is up, we stop, I post the entire conversation on this blog and next time a new Guest DM continues exactly where the story was stopped. Guest DMs are credited with links to their own blogs and/or web sites.

  I'll post the character I'll be using and the rules of how this will work pretty soon, but for the time being if anyone would already be interested in being a Guest DM just contact me on Google Plus or leave a comment on this post. You don't have to watch the original video as I'll also post Adamus' stats and background in the rules post, plus I might change some stuff from what was decided on the video anyway.
