I'm looking for two more players for a Swords and Wizardry White Box Play-by-Blog campaign.

I currently already have two players and I would ideally like to have a total of four. I want to keep the group small to minimize posting lag and keep the game moving.

The basic campaign idea is this:

"The West Kingdom, ruled by Berenger II, is a vast land, difficult to control. Its isolated towns are bastions of relative peace and order. The King's soldiers patrol the roads as best they can. But the woods, hills, ruins and caves remain untamed. From these regions, the minions of chaos come forth to menace the folk of Berenger's realm. With resources stretched, the King's men are fortunate to simply hold the settlements and byways. Only small companies of roving adventurers press the attack into the dark places where the enemies of the Kingdom abide. Fairbrook is where the story begins for one such band."

Rules: Swords and Wizardry White Box (Third Printing) almost entirely as written. House rules are relatively few and straightforward, and they can be found at: http://westkingdom.blogspot.com/p/rules.html

Start Date and Venue: The game will begin on March 1, 2012, and will played on a dedicated blog at: http://westkingdom.blogspot.com/

Posting Rhythm: one post every two days. More detail on posting schedule and conventions can be found at: http://westkingdom.blogspot.com/p/posting-procedures.html

Tone: Light, but liberally seasoned with darker elements. Similar in tone to The Hobbit (a bit more grown up though), The Face in the Frost, or the Prince Valiant comics.

Structure: Non-linear, mostly sandboxish.

Scale: Relatively small-scale to start, expanding as needed.

PC Death: Occurs at 0 hp.

Type of Players Sought: New players and veteran players alike are both MOST WELCOME. I'm especially interested in players who try to work well together cooperatively.
