Obviously you guys would need to work out the specifics for your characters (how you met each other, why you began raiding, etc.), but that is a great place to start. It's a great setup, as you guys can basically play whatever the hell you want.

Don't forget that there is always a demand for skilled and easily deniable mercenaries. Even the wealthiest of individuals cannot simply do as they please - the templars are entrenched EVERYWHERE. You can run the caravan at the behest of a noble family or trade cartel (the Dune Trader is an obvious theme one or two of you can take) and take some "special" tasks to supplement your income.

Yeah, I don't know much about the themes as I haven't gotten my hands on the campaign setting yet.

What are people thinking of playing (role-wise)?  Has anyone else wanted to play a leader yet?  If not, I'll take that, otherwise I'm kind of thinking it might be fun to play a defender a bit inspired by B.A. Baracus...

It sounds a lot like a Shadowrun crew. We get ourselves a Mr Fixit and then do whatever jobs come down the pike, most likely wearing masks or the like. Our "normal" job is to run a caravan, which gets us access to places for our illegal work.

Oh no! Does that mean you can't play if I start a Dark Sun game on the NB Forums?

People participating in this game should feel free to play whatever they wish, wherever. I am hardly the end-all, be-all GM that demands undying fealty from his players.

Hell, Neil, if you start a Dark Sun game on the NB forums I will gladly participate.

My new goal in life is to play D&D with Judi Dench
