Hello everyone, I know it's been a while since I posted here. I don't RP much very often and this forum doesn't see much use anymore, but recently I've been blessed with some free time with which I would like to use to be able to test the waters and get my feet wet a bit in a new campaign setting.

Details right now are sparse, but it's going to be a test run of the BoK system in a live format, and will be conducted on Roll20. I've had a test campaign of this before that turned out pretty successful with only a few minor hiccups, but seeing as how that was more than 2 years ago at this point and availability between players has changed drastically, I've decided to once again put a notice out there for potential recruits.

As stated above, the setting and ruleset will be those that exist for BoK. The rules were made to be pretty simple and flexible, and I have an incomplete rulebook handy that can be viewed here: Kriegmar Rulebook

Keep in mind that this rulebook is still being fleshed out, and things such as races, class advancement and other lore tidbits are not fully fleshed out. However, the basic gist of creating a charatcer at level 1 are fully explained. Still, if you have any questions concerning character creation, feel free to ask!

Alright, so here are some more fleshed out details of the test run:
-It is going to be conducted hopefully next weekend at night sometime (March 23rd or 24th). So please only sign up for this if you have an evening time slot available! I operate in the Pacific Timezone, and so I will try and shoot for a timeslot of around 4-6PM my time (7-9 EST). If you cannot make it to this time, but would still like to play, please get in touch with me through this thread or DM. The date set for this game is tentative and not set in stone, so if it doesn't mesh well with your schedule, perhaps we can figure something out!
-Participant soft cap is going to be at 6. I had to increase it!
-I would ask that you have a pretty knowledgeable background in Roleplaying at the very least, and are able to conduct yourself maturely. If I or others determine that you cannot conduct yourself properly due to present or past interactions with you, then don't be surprised if you are dropped from consideration.
-It's a test run! Please expect hiccups, hangups and some long moments of seemingly inactivity. I am not necessarily a new DM, but I am inexperienced at live sessions and will need some time to adjust.

Game-related details:
-The campaign is going to be centered around the Sunrel Magical Academy, situated in Gridenia. More details about this place can be found here: Sunrel Academy - Pastebin.com
-Players may create an academy mage student, or a mercenary of any class. Since this is a campaign focused on the academy itself, those who choose for their character to be an Academy Mage will get certain benefits such as an extra character outfit, certain buffs, access to free tools and possibly other benefits.

On character creation:
As with all my BoK campaigns, only the creation of a female character with female-only parts is allowed. And though only humans and dwarves are mentioned in the race section of the incomplete rulebook, pretty much any fantasy race is allowed within reason. Classes as always, are flexible within certain roles, and though I encourage you to make an academy mage character, it is by no means a requirement.

Once you have a class idea and character in mind, please contact me for information regarding your character's appearance, as I plan to draw them a token myself. As an academy mage character, they will have a designated academy uniform which is mandatory and can only have a few articles customized. Their field work outfit however, is fully customizable.

If creating an academy mage character, you will need to choose a school for them to be a member of, and their skills will derive from that school. Once they promote, they can expand the scope of their abilities and change or even double dip into other schools.

I will list more details here as they come to mind or are brought up in discussion. If you have an important question about something I may have missed, please ask! I will update this post accordingly with any pertinent information.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope you will be able to join us!
