Alright folks. I’ve never GMd BW before, but there’s no time like the present. I’d like to get a weekly game going and am in need of players.
Frequency: Wednesdays @ 5:30PM Pacific Daylight Time (GMT-7) via Discord call and Roll20. I’m thinking of starting with just a handful of 2-4 hour sessions (with regular breaks) to determine if the group meshes well.
(Pre) Session 0: I’ll start a private group chat with all the interested parties and we’ll brainstorm some ideas for the situation/characters. If we get enough things sorted out via chat, we’ll likely be able to start play the first time we meet.
Game Mechanics: Until I’ve got a good grasp on the Hub & Spokes, I don’t intend on bringing in some of the more advanced systems to start. But my goal is to get experienced enough to run engaging Fights, DoWs, R&Cs, and even the newer Warfare or Factions!
I’m an LGBTQIA+ ally, so inclusivity will be high on my GM agenda. Safety tools and check-ins will be part of the norm.
I have social anxiety at times, but it shouldn’t interfere with the game
Newbies to Burning Wheel are welcome!
DM me if you’re interested!
I already have 3 interested players and have room for 1 more. The 3 situations I’ve pitched so far are
1. Dinner for Peace
You serve the estate of megalomaniac Count Le Mort. An important apology feast with the furious Elven neighbors is tomorrow.
2. Innovation Intervention
Someone in the Kingdom has figured out how to make a working cannon. Under no circumstances will the Sodality for Abiding Peace allow this technology to spread.
3. Internal Revenue Squad
War is brewing amongst the dukes and it’s your job to collect taxes in the towns where the armies will likely clash. (Taken from Judd Karlman)
UPDATE: Unfortunately my spots are all filled up! If all goes well and I get better at running BW, my hope is to start running demos for newbies. I’ll keep you all posted!
