    Template for Game Listings

    This is designed to make everyone's life easier, both GM's and players. When posting a game listing that needs players, please use this template.

    FG License: i.e. GM has Full so players need at least Lite, etc.
    Game System: i.e. Pathfinder, D&D 4E, etc.

    Time Zone: i.e. Central Time USA, etc.
    Day of week and time: i.e. Tuesdays or Fridays starting at 8 pm, etc.
    If new game, planned start date:
    Planned Duration & Frequency: i.e. 2 Hour session, 5 Hour Session, etc. & i.e. Weekly, every other week, once a month, etc.
    Term: i.e. Long term keep playing for a while, or Working through a module and will be done as a group when that is over, etc.

    Text or Voice: i.e. Text ONLY, Voice preferred, Mix of both ok, etc.
    Voice software used: i.e. Skype, Teamspeak, Google Hangout, etc.
    Will this be recorded and/or live streamed? i.e. podcast, Twitch, Youtube, etc. If so, do you want webcam video from players or not? Other details, etc.


    Roleplay & Combat mix: i.e. 50/50, 25/75 Heavy Combat, No Combat, etc.
    Number of Players in game & needed: i.e. Have 2 players, need 3 more, etc.
    Character starting level & equipment: i.e. 2nd level with 1 magic item under 4k, etc.
    Character restrictions: i.e. Only core races and classes, or non-Magic world, etc.

    Details of your scenario: i.e. Your sales pitch to players, what is your world like, what will they be doing, etc. As much or as little detail as you want to give away here.
    **Also in here*** What do you expect from players as a GM? What do you not want? rules lawyers, combat monsters, min/max, etc. Any warnings or disclaimers you feel will help attract the right players and weed out the ones that you feel will not fit or be fun in this game.

    Following a suggestion from my Player LFG template, here is some Title suggestions and a blank Template to copy and paste.
    Title Example:
    LFP Need 3 Players Wed Night 6PM EST USA 5E Hoard of the Dragon Queen
    LFP = Looking for Players, lets people know this before clicking
    Say how many players you need.
    Say what day & time is the game.
    Say what system & module or homebrew maybe even what level players start at.

    Once again, I really hope this helps you find players for your game and that you can enjoy this great hobby of Role Playing online via Fantasy Grounds.

    I think this is a great idea .. only thing I would add is the GM's opinion on rules lawyers and/or power gamers and/or "combat monsters" who are more interested in hack and slash than the finer points of role playing - sometimes it's best to get that sorted out in advance to prevent misunderstandings between the GM and players as to what is expected in the campaign :P .. The clarification of text and/or voice is in my humble opinion particularly outstanding .. perhaps with a warning if it's all text " Slow typists may not be able to keep up ! " (this has happened to me as a GM before even when the players are using voice chat for out of character type stuff and I've insisted on everything in-character being typed as I tend to do ...)

    Something like the GM's opinion on rules lawyers, etc. I think might be tough to put on one line and should be part of the details of the scenario where the GM can be a bit more free form and go into those details. I will edit it to make it more clear on that bit.

    One thing I always include and look for in these kind of posts is how the gaming table and the GM place themselves on the GNS theory.

    It doesn't answer everything, but it's a pretty good start.

    It sounds good, hope it will get better and better!

    Just a suggestion - for players looking for DM, perhaps "LFDM" would be better - easier to separate the two.
