Default Trickster-based Dungeons and Dragons game looking for players/interest

(First off: a note. I have no idea where to put this, so I'll say here for now and let a mod move it if need be.)
(Second off: Another note. This thread is just to gauge interest. You are not bound to play by any means if you post here.)

Now: I am thinking of starting a Dungeons and Dragons game set in the Trickster universe. Here's what we (myself and the person I am planning this with) are looking at so far:

*3.5 edition rules

*We are using System Reference Document classes and such only. This is so everyone can easily (and legally!) be more-or-less on the same track. EXCEPTION: No psionics allowed, as the DM has had no experience with them and they don't really fit well into the setting anyway.

*There will, of course, be a thematic connection between the Trickster classes and the Dungeons and Dragons classes - we are still working out exactly how we will relate each D&D class with a Trickster class, but most likely it will go something like this:

Me: Oh, I see you're choosing to play a female cleric....so, you want to play as a sheep?

You: Uh-huh.

*This will be a game targeted at beginning players, and all are welcome.

*This game will take place over IRC. Once I gauge how much interest we have, I will set up a channel for the game to take place in.

*There will be no restriction on alignment, but Good and Neutral characters are strongly preferred.

*We have not yet determined what the starting level for play is. Check this space for further updates.


If you are interested, please post here with your approximate level of experience playing Dungeons and Dragons, your approximate level of experience roleplaying in general, and your time zone.

Thanks you much!

Your humble DM, Freyalise

We're looking hopefully for some people who won't mind a few kinks in our system before we get this nice and polished, just some good play testers. :3

I'm in. I had a lot of fun RPing during easy runs in XC.

I have zero experience regarding rules but you are expecting that. I will look at that link when I have the time to.

I can set up IRC myself but you might want to post a guide. I can write one for mIRC or Trillian.

I would appreciate it very much if you were to do so. I'll also write a guide for the dice bot we're going to be using.

Okay o;

When I get enough people interested, I'll be holding one or two sessions before the game starts so that I can explain how the game mechanics work. I'll also go over character creation and that fun stuff.

To those wanting to actually play this, can we get some times (PST, for easy reference, since it's on the Trickster main page after all) of when you can actually get online to do this?

Wonderful!

UPDATE: CHARACTER CREATION WORKSHOP/RULES EXPLANATION:

I will be hosting a character creation session on Saturday, August 30th, from 8:00 AM PST (Trickster time) to whenever we're done (I'll keep going as long as there's interest). If interested (or if you just want to watch), stop by #tricksterRPG on irc.rizon.net (the same place you'll find MyMMO's excellent IRC chat). Stop by, roll up a character, maybe fight a monster or two!

UPDATE: YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD DICE BOT, A MANUAL
#tricksterRPG's dicebot is named Hyades, and is fairly easy to use. For basic commands, type 'roll' followed by d(number of sides for your dice).
EXAMPLE:
[14:06:43] <@DMFreyalise> roll d20
[14:06:43] <Hyades> DMFreyalise rolls d20 --> 14

You can roll multiple dice at the same time by putting the number of dice you want to roll in front of the d(number).
EXAMPLE:
[14:07:44] <@DMFreyalise> roll 5d6
[14:07:44] <Hyades> DMFreyalise rolls 5d6 --> 18

That's all good and well, but what if you want to see the results of each individual roll? Put a # between the number of dice you want to roll and the d.
EXAMPLE:
[14:08:42] <@DMFreyalise> roll 5#d6
[14:08:42] <Hyades> DMFreyalise rolls 5#d6 --> 4, 4, 2, 6, 5

Hyades can also add modifiers onto dice rolls:
[14:09:31] <@DMFreyalise> roll d6+5
[14:09:31] <Hyades> DMFreyalise rolls d6+5 --> 7

Subtract modifiers:
[14:09:47] <@DMFreyalise> roll d6-5
[14:09:47] <Hyades> DMFreyalise rolls d6-5 --> 0

and even multiply!
[14:10:20] <@DMFreyalise> roll d6*5
[14:10:21] <Hyades> DMFreyalise rolls d6*5 --> 30

I've played some D&D before but never the actual board/original version before so I am a relative greenhorn in the system itself. That being said, I would love to come and watch and maybe even join in. I don't think I can stay the whole time (prior engagements) but I would love to come with whatever time I have. =)

That's fine, we'd love to have you. :3

Stop by whenever you can, I'll probably be in (unless I'm sleeping).

Well, we've started our training session, though no one's shown up yet...

We're ready and waiting for people to join us on IRC, server irc.rizon.net, room #tricksterRPG, so we can help you make your characters, and maybe even do some battles to warm up :3
