Hello! I'd like to run a PbP here using GURPs where you or your character find themselves somewhere in Middle Earth. I am not a Tolkein expert, so bear with me as I use wikis. I can provide all required PDFs, just PM me. All characters are 150 points base, max 25 disadvantage, 5 quirks. If you need help making a character, PM me. All characters must be NORMAL! This means no super soldiers, no wizards, just normal human beings. I'd like 5 players before we start. It should go without saying that your characters will have no knowledge of LOTR. Post your character sheets here, please.

I am definitely interested in this! I do have a quick setting question, more to do with the modern world the characters come from: Is it essentially just like our world but without LotR? Or are there bigger differences?

Our world but without LOTR, correct.

A few character creation questions: Would the characters be considered at a higher TLs than Middle Earth? Should we take the High TL advantage, or will it nor be important? And should we take equipment? I'm not terribly familiar with the isekai genre, would just what the characters have in their pockets on on their person be with them?

1. Take the High TL advantage for free
2. As for equipment, you may have 1 weapon, 100 rounds of ammunition, an e-reader, and a solar charger. Aside from that, you should have clothes.
