With the recent and untimely demise of Manchiever (Mu: 1) in my Ever Expanding Dungeon campaign (solo Labyrinth Lord), the party has an opening.
In fact, I'd like to have at least two new PCs join the party the next time they return to town - it's getting dangerous in there, and the original party had 5 characters and two henchmen.
By now, the nearby villages all know of the party's exploits - having defended the region not once, but twice, from White Eyes, the Evil Wizard, and ended a ghoul feeding frenzy. Not to mention, a local boy, Perceval, rose from lowly porter to the party's leader and was the longest surviving member, before being cut down cruelly by a trap on a mere pittance of silver.
Unfortunately, the nearby villages also know of the horrendous loss suffered inside the dungeon.
Further south, tales of the exploration has reached The City but so far few have been anxious to answer the siren's call of adventure and death defying. Probably because no one has really been terribly successful at the latter.
I could roll one up , and I have and will, but both Bluebear Jeff and Fitz-Badger have a character in my game already and I feel a little more protective of these characters than the ones I roll up, since they are created by people I enjoy conversing with. The possibility of telling them about the death of their character isn't something I enjoy.
Indeed, I've had to do this twice for Jeff already!
And so, I'd like to extend the invitation to anyone so interested.
You create the character: roll them up (I'm using Labyrinth Lord, but any similar system works fine, race-as-class), give them a name, a brief background (don't spend too much time on it, they'll probably die) preferably with some kind of motivation for a life of adventure and exploration, equip them per the rules of your choice, etc. and then turn the character over to me in the comments below.
Going forward I control the character in the game, but it gives you someone to root for.
So, if you're interested, just roll up a PC, and post them below (or on my G+).
Don't worry if someone else posts ahead of you - the rate of attrition in this campaign is astounding. Fortunately, i'm using the party average for starting level, and currently, it's solidly at 2nd level, so maybe they'll survive a few sessions!
