Sometimes coming up with ideas for role playing world can be tough on a DM. Well not anymore! Now it can be a fun group activity with the Dawn Of Worlds rule set. This looks like a lot of fun, and can be done entirely online using forums. I think it would be a lot of fun to do a dry run of this game right here to see how things shake out. Anyone else interested?

So clearly, at least some people are keen on playing. I'm getting ready to start a blank map, but I think the size of the world should depend on the number of players playing. As such, please respond if you're interested in giving this crazy system a try.

Ok, I created a starting map to play with. I also created a photobucket account that the group can share. I'll PM anyone who wants to play the login information for Photobucket to upload map changes. When do you guys want to start playing? Should we wait to see if anyone else wants to join in?

Nah, I think we should just get started. I mentioned it to Steve on the phone last night and he seemed content to lurk. And it seems unlikely that Brian will be stopping by regularly enough for this.

I think if anyone wants to pop in later then we should just let them join in - there's not really a good reason not to add people as they come, they just won't have had as big an effect on the world.

Also, I propose that each "turn" be a posted reply to your original post with the map, and each person reply with the number of points they rolled, what they want to do, the cost, and their current point total.

I'm going to use the below link for dice rolls:

http://www.random.org/dice/

So, Turn 1 for me:

Roll: 9 Points

Action: Spend all 9 points to do Shape Land 1" and turn the island on the right into a jungle island.

Remaining points: 0

Which, according to the rules leaves me with +1 point for next round.

Total remaining points: 1

(edit) I'm editing the map now - since the island squares aren't exactly 1" I went a bit into some of the other squares (you'll see what I mean), it seems like a reasonable thing to do, but if anyone has a problem just feel free to undo it. (/edit)

Roll: 5

Action: spend 3 points on shape land to create a desert in the southern central area of the main continent.

Remaining points: 2

I also get the +1 bonus for next round, so

Total remaining points: 3

and I have posted the map with my change (went over the borders of the box slightly, because drawing with a mouse is hard, and soft edges make more sense than hard edges.)

(edited to remove shape climate option, based on chat conversation)

There are rules for doing turn order. At the beginning of each round every player is supposed to roll 2d6 to determine order for that round. But I think with only 3 people, that would get annoying fast, so maybe we'll just randomize turn order every age instead. And secondly, I really don't think this game would work well with a strictly "stay within the lines" kind of attitude. Doing effects that take up about 1/3 of three different squares, or bleeding into adjacent squares a little bit is perfectly fine by me. Anyway, my turn:

First Age, Round 1, Turn 3
Previous Points - 0
Points Rolled - 10
New Total - 10

Actions:
Shape Land 1" X 3 - Create mountain range in north west section of the map.

Points Remaining: 1 (+1)

Previous Points - 4
Points Rolled - 6

Actions:
Shape Land 1" X 2 - Finishing the mountain range. This mountain range now cuts off the northern western part of the map, making travel from the mainland to that portion of the map difficult.

Points Remaining: 1 (+3)

2 points: Command Avatar to spawn a race of Ents (edit) I realized reading the rules last night that I should have specified that they start at Purify +1 (/edit)

12 points, 2x2 forest for them

0 points remaining, so +3 for next turn which brings me to a total of

3 points for next turn

Did a shitty job drawing the forest because I don't have a mouse at the moment, I'll touch it up tomorrow

points from last turn: 5
Die roll: 7
Total for turn : 12

Action: Create Avatar - That Which Sleeps Beneath the Sands - Like the desert sands, this being is shifting and fickle. Its form varies, and often appears between a humaniod and a desert animal (I'm sort of envisioning the various Egyptian deities rolled into one), and acts as both a force of creation and destruction.

Points remaining: 2 + 3 bonus
Points to start next turn: 5

Not making a map change since it's not really relevant where the avatar is right now, other than in that desert.

Also, voting to continue the first age.
