I usually play RPG with friends & family, but everyone (and mostly me!) has been quite busy. But I am beginning to have a bit of an itch to play again.
I have never played online before, and I don’t think I would have considered it if this community wasn’t so welcoming. I am most of the time the DM in games I play, but I absolutly do not want to be one in this case, mostly because (and you may have guessed it from what I wrote thus far), I am not a native speaker. I am decent in English, but not enough to carry a whole game.
So, as I thought about it, I figured maybe we could play a game of “The Quiet Year”, if anyone is up for it? It is a map drawing game, where we draw a card and build a community after some kind of a cataclysm, and we have a year before the Frost Sheperds arrive, and we have to make most of it.
The quiet year is a DM-less RPG, where we play in turn, not playing one character, but the whole community. It has some strict speaking-in-order rules, and I think it could work pretty well as a forum game.
If some people are interested, we could try to figure out how to have a common maps to draw on, and start to think on a setting. I do not think it would be a huge time sink, and the game should not be very long. I have some free time but not a lot, and I would prefer if we were lenient with each other on time taken to respond.
What do you fine people think of this idea? Want to build something together?
