Let's Play Yoon-Suin

You know what? Fuck it. Would anyone like to play some Yoon-Suin Play-By-Chat?

Times: Tuesday or Wednesday nights, beginning 7-8pm-ish GMT (I know this probably makes it impossible for a lot of North Americans... sorry). I could possibly consider changing this to Sunday evenings though I'd prefer to keep them free. (In that wonderful Japanese phrase, I like to "prepare my heart" for the working week in front of me on Sunday nights.)
Place: MapTool (free RPG chat/irc thing). I don't like voice chat as it's just a jerky and awkward approximation of real life with none of the benefits.
Details: I'd like around 4 players (but will settle for less) who can commit to a once-a-week game, on the understanding that this is a playtest of some experimental new classes and rules - so experienced D&D players who can give feedback would be more than welcome. The system is essentially BECMI D&D with knobs and whistles. A liking for and appreciation of whatever Yoon-Suin stuff I've posted in the blog would be a plus. My games are sandboxy and player initiative is important. Yoon-Suin is mostly a giant slaying, rather than a goblin massacre, setting; aside from that the players can make it as dungeoncrawly or as hexcrawly or as politicky as they like, or anything in between - there's room for all of it.
Start Date: I'd like to have a character gen/setup session on the 10th or 11th of March.

If you're interested, send me an email. It's jean DOT delumeau AT gmail DOT com.


  1. tempting, but it would require such a massive lifestyle overhaul that I can't do it

    good luck--i loooooove that setting

    it'd also be nice if you gave us some "lessons learned" posts once in a while

  2. Good luck!
    Remember to post comments on how it went, or the chatlog.

  4. I would love to do that, but the appointed time doesn't work for me, alas.

    I'll be interested in hearing how things--and getting more Yoon-Suin tidbits, though.

  5. "tempting, but...I can't do it

  6. I am soooo sorry I can't make this game, I work until 20:00gmt. You know your setting rocks, keep us updated on how it goes.

  7. Ack! That's like 6-7 in the morning for me and I'll be either working or sleeping.

    I need more fodder for pictures and such as my imagination grows weary, so please, give us distilled updates or blow-by-blows, some kind of juicy effluvium of the goings-on would be welcome and much appreciated.

    Btw what "giants" -other than slug giants and velvet worms and the odd rakshasa, will you be featuring? -and- are you going to include special ewok guerilla tactical rules to facilitate your giant hunting?

    More Yoon-Suin is always good.

  8. wv. genzelim: seldom-seen humanoid Sipunculids from the Topaz Islands, prized by the Squid men for the aphrodisiac exudate of their frontal orifices.

  9. I'm a total novice, but I might be able to do it. I'll have a think about it and talk to you when I see you next.
