 The Old Warrior's Laboratory - Testing of OW's Warriors


Edit: The game is created (#125).

EDIT (Aug 10th): Since Webquest and the Museum have been closed, I am going to try to slavage this game in my own message board.

I am adding a reply to my own post (switching it by editing with the original post), because I am afraid the many words in the initial post may be scaring off potential players.

If interested, please do not let your "maxed out" warrior status prevent you from replying. More warrior slots are on the way for those who GM several games; and, we might be able to convince the webmaster to help get this game going (He is a really nice guy!). emoticon

Please reply to this topic or email me to state your serious interest in joining this new Webquest game. This game should be very fun. You may email me at this address: mailto:theoldwarrior@[sign in to see URL]

Please check out my warriors, before you jump to any conclusions. This will be a real game.

Also, I am very patient and will give all the players time to learn (by trial and error if need be) how to play my warriors.

After the links to the warrior types, please note the "If You Choose" section, which tell you which Webquest warrior type to use when joining this game. Here are the warrior links (in most popular order):

Friendly Giant

Martial Artist

Christian Missionary

(Next one is not in the Museum yet.)

Changeling

The Changeling's Transformation Catalog only (also included in the Changeling's full rules -- this is for easier printing, maybe)

[sign in to see URL]


Old Warrior Message Board link (for Old Warrior Rules and rulings, & etc...):

If You Choose...

...the Friendly Giant, the Changeling, or the Martial Artist, then almost any non-wizard type of character should work. I would rather NOT have a blue power bar beside a primarily physical type of warrior.

...the Christian Missionary, then you need to join with a WQ Witch Hunter, because the CM has a faith characteristic. Also, if a player would prefer an easier to use Christian Missionary, I will apply some alternate rules to the extent requested to enable this.

...an Aes Sedai (Male or Female) then please join with a normal wizard. This will give the current power and stored power (tokens) characteristics needed. Plus, Aes Sedai can learn some Wizard spells, and this will help the GM to advance the Aes Sedai more easily.

posticon Re: The Old Warrior's Laboratory - Need Players to Test OW Warriors


This is a new game idea for Webquest in which I want to play test my specially created warriors for WHQ. The Martial Artist may be the easiest of them, with the Friendly Giant and the Changeling tying for second easiest. The Christian Missionary and the Male and Female Aes Sedai (actually three different kinds of each for a total of six possible Aes Sedai types) are likely the most complicated.

WARNING: These highly customized Webquest warriors will NOT be allowed to leave this game to join others, unless I make a special allowance for them to join another of my games. All potential players should read and understand this entire introduction to the game. I don't want you to get into something that you wouldn't like. emoticon

I need one Martial Artist, one Friendly Giant, and one Changeling. After that, the remaining warrior may be chosen from three of my creations: A Male Aes Sedai, a Female Aes Sedai, or a Christian Missionary.

I intend to let the warrior's rules stand "as is" from the start of the game. But, I may be tweaking them during play for their compatability with Webquest functionality. Also, I will likely be making some changes along the way for the clarification and balance of the warriors for general play.

After the players tell me what type of warrior they want to play, I will tweak the warriors to become, non-coded custom warriors based upon each warrior's rules and stats. This game will be by invitation only, after I confirm that the players are good to go. So, please do not tell me what type of warrior you want to play until you have spent a little time getting familiar with that warrior's rules (links provided in the first post for your convenience).

However, this game will have a preference for those that can login at least once a day. So, when you say what type of warrior you want to play test, please also state how often you think you can consistently (on average) login (see also the "If You Choose" section at the end of the above post). If a player does not take his or her turn for 24 hours or more, I will "nudge" that player's warrior so that the game will keep moving.

This will be a linked adventures career type campaign. The goal is to play the warriors to at least Battle Levels 4 or 5 (or as high as they can go). I will be using my random tools so that I can more easily concentrate on reviewing the warriors' rules and revising them as needed, while helping the players to learn the true intent of the rules -- from the author himself. emoticon

Because of special gold rules for the three warriors that I want included in this game, the gold/experience from monsters will be handled differently than in most of my games.

Re: The Old Warrior's Laboratory - Need Players to Test OW Warriors


OK, I'd love to play if Bruno will give me yet another free slot.

Personally, I'd like to play the friendly giant but if others would like that character, I'll pick another. Since when was I fussy ;-)

Cheers,
Grogling

I'll keep you in mind Karadryel, just in case. I might need one more brave soul, though it could slightly the game slow.

Re: The Old Warrior's Laboratory - Need Players to Test OW Warriors


Summary:


Alexkeaton to play the Friendly Giant

Grogling to play the Christian Missionary

Which means Starfighter gets to play the Martial Artist (if that is okay), because this game is mostly to test the FG, MA, & Changeling.

Karadryel to play the Changeling

Note: Karadryel, if it is okay with you, I will "nudge" your warrior if nothing significant is happening and you don't log within 24 hours, or if you aren't logged in for 2 or 3 days (even if some significant stuff is happening). Please let me know if this is NOT okay, and I will try to accomodate you.

If any of you lack a warrior slot, please let me know AND Bruno says he will make sure you can get into this game.

HOWEVER, PLEASE be sure to see the rules of the warrior you have chosen BEFORE you create your WQ character and make sure I give you the final go ahead to join with your warrior of choice. ALSO, PLEASE be sure to read the IF YOU CHOOSE section (repeated below), so that you choose a Webquest warrior that will work best for my tweaking machinations.


If You Choose...

...the Friendly Giant, the Changeling, or the Martial Artist, then almost any non-wizard type of character should work. I would rather NOT have a blue power bar beside a primarily physical type of warrior.

...the Christian Missionary, then you need to join with a WQ Witch Hunter, because the CM has a faith characteristic. Also, if a player would prefer an easier to use Christian Missionary, I will apply some alternate rules to the extent requested to enable this.

...an Aes Sedai (Male or Female) then please join with a normal wizard. This will give the current power and stored power (tokens) characteristics needed. Plus, Aes Sedai can learn some Wizard spells, and this will help the GM to advance the Aes Sedai more easily.

The game is created (#125) and awaiting Bruno's assistance, since I made a mistake in the invitations. AND, he will take care of the warrior slots.

I'm fine with being "nudged" and hopefully I will never be away for 3 days. Anyway I printed off the changeling rules a couple of days ago so Im ready to get started.

Karadryel, did you get my PM about the change in the Changeling's characteristics. The original document I revised. If you printed it out when I think you did, the BL table is accurate, but the starting stats were NOT.

Anyway, I will be making sure you get the really wimpy revised stats. hehe emoticon

He is weaker than the wizard, oh dear me! Except when he transforms into a minotaur or other mean monster form.

Oh, and the Changeling can probably look like anyone. I imagine that he/she/it appears rather harmless in normal form.
