WHO: Your Player Character will begin at Level 10. Eligible classes include: Barbarian, Bard, Cleric, Druid, Fighter, Monk, Paladin, Psion, Psychic Warrior, Ranger, Rogue, Sorceror, Soulknife, Wilder, Witch, and Wizard. Eligible races for PC's include: Humans, Dromites, Duergar, Dwarves, Elans, Elves, Githyanki, Githzerai, Gnomes, Half-Elves, Half-Giants, Half-Orcs, Halflings, Maenads, Thri-Keen, and Xephs.

WHAT: 3.5 ed. D&D PBeM in a setting that blends history with myth, legend, folklore, and fantasy.

WHERE: Tauria, a remnant of the Cimmerian Empire that survives on the Crimean Peninsula a century and a half after the conquest of the Cimmerian Empire by the Scythians. This densely forested peninsula on the northern coast of the Black Sea is easily defensible from the nomadic Scythians who rule the steppe north of them on the only land border of Tauria.

WHEN: This campaign will begin as soon as all of the characters are ready. Within the game, it is now 6:00 p.m. on February 24, 600 B.C. This is during the reigns of Madyes of the Scythian Empire, Kyaxares of the Median Empire, Alyattes of the Kingdom of Lydia, Nebuchadrezzar of the Babylonian Empire, Pharaoh Necho II of Egypt, and Jehoiakim of the Kingdom of Judah. Please keep in mind when choosing equipment that some of the equipment available in medieval D&D games would be unavailable in an ancient setting from over 26 centuries ago. For example, crossbows and alchemist's fire have not yet been invented.

HOW: If you're interested, please e-mail me at ivansguard-tauria@yahoo.com. If you need any help in preparing a character sheet, or only have an earlier edition of D&D to work with, just let me know. Feel free to ask questions. I understand that this is a geographically and historically obscure setting so you're welcome to join the game without having any prior knowledge of the Tauri or their land.
