Amnesiac Indentured Recovery Specialists
Chapter 0: Amnesiac Indentured Recovery Specialists
Some time in the recent past you awoke with no memory of anything and were told by a nominally kindly automaton that you had died and, lacking sufficient assets to afford resurrection, you have become the property of ThaumCo Incorporated until you can work off your debt.

After a few weeks of aptitude testing, training, and group therapy sessions with Floyd (the aforementioned automaton) you have been given your first mission.

Basically you are being teleported to a remote location to delve "The Dread Warrens of Myali the Infernal" (which Floyd assures you is long abandoned and not nearly as sinister as it sounds) to collect whatever valuables might happen to be there and then signal back for pick-up. A percentage of what you recover will be applied to both your existing dept and any additional dept you have accrued or may accrue to ThaumCo through the care, room and board they provide you... plus interest.

I keep experimenting with running role-playing for my 5 and 6 year old kids and realized that the biggest problem is my lack of familiarity with Dungeon Mastering... I'm just not really all that good at it... so I found a super simple OSR-style system called Microlite20 ( ) to use and rolled the kids up some characters and started running them through a generated dungeon.

It seems to be going well so far but I keep having to look stuff up and I haven't got the "thinking on my feet and setting DCs for using two 10'poles to escape a pit trap both PCs have fallen in" type stuff so I figured I'd experiment with running a game on Hai... that way I get practice DMing and we all can work out some "conventions" to use when doing a play by post.

I have roped one sucker in already so that's a good start right?

Role up a character using the SRD and post it in it's own new post within this room.

I'll make another "always out of character" thread for discussion/questions.

This is a super-weird thing. This will take some getting used to.
Yeah... maybe... I'm sure you'll manage...
"always out of character" thread for discussion/questions
Who wants in? What do you need to know?
I should be in. :D
OK... need to know anything? You could contact me through other means but I imagine many questions you might have would be the kind of thing anyone would need to know (and if you ask here I won't have to answer them multiple times)
