Character and Game Timeline

Brave Adventurers,

The citizens of Riverford need your help!

The Riverford Freelancers Guild have a number of open jobs right now, and are looking for eager young mercenary adventurers  to complete them!

Protection. Escort. Courier. Gathering. Retrieval. Jobs of all kinds!

Adventure and fortune awaits! Visit our guild hall today!

Another one of SyncRPG's "social RPG experiments," The Riverford Freelancers is a small contracting company that takes various odd jobs from clients in Riverford, and farms them out to worthy adventurers. It's a great way for a new adventurer to cut their teeth and make a name for themselves in the city.

As discussed on the blog, the sessions are designed to be self-contained, one-shot adventures, where a group of PCs attempts to complete a handful of quests in the heartland of Kithera, the Three Rivers Valley.

Regular sessions are every Tuesday, from 5:00-8:00 PM PDT (GMT -8), but additional sessions may be scheduled for other days based on player interest. The games are open to the public, but individual sessions are invite only. If you're interested in playing in a session, head over to our forums and RSVP for a session in it's thread and I'll shoot you an invite to the game. If the regularly scheduled timeslot doesn't convenient for you and your friends, speak up and we'll do our best to schedule a session at a time that works for you!

Other Info / Notes

  • XP and unclaimed loot will be calculated after the session. I’ll update everyone in the Google Community later.
  • At the end of a session, surviving party members are assumed to make it back to Riverford safely.
  • Muting PolicyIf someone’s mic is picking up background noise or otherwise causing a disturbance, I may mute that person in the Hangout. Please do not take this as me being rude, I’m just trying to be considerate for the other players and anyone watching the stream or recording.
