You've gone to sleep in your favorite spot, safe and secure in yourself and your surroundings. You wake up to find yourself under a canopy of unfamiliar trees, with others similarly rousing from their slumber in an equally confused state. By chance or by purpose, you were brought here for a reason, but that mystery is yet for you to uncover.

Hello everyone. I'm wanting to run a massive long-term roleplay based in Dungeons and Dragons Forgotten Realms setting along the Sword Coast. Some of it I'll just be bullshitting because I really don't know the fine details, but part of being a team adventuring within a world is that things change all the time and part of it is going with the flow and making our own fun right?! As it stands I intend for there to be much more roleplay elements than dice rolls on the part of the player as I want this to be as fun and interactive for all of you as possible. I on the other hand will be doing a ton of rolls with my shiny math rocks because shiny math rocks!

NEW!!! Here are links to EACH OOC Reply Guide =)

Intro Post - Includes a link to the First post of our In-Character Thread.
Post #2 - Into the Forest, Action Happens!

Gonna keep this super simple, simple as possible so here's a few things;

This is going to be Long Term, so please be prepared to be around for a while. While I can adjust to have people in and out, weeks where you don't feel well, or just can't post because your bunny rabbit ate through your power cord, I would really appreciate if you take into consideration how long this adventure may take to play out.

As a further note I will be hooking lots of the official modules into this, but many details may be changed and adjusted as required to make things flow and fit the group's needs and wants.

I highly value your input, suggestions, and feedback so please don't hesitate to provide it! Or look for clarification or anything that crosses your mind. If I don't know there's a problem or issue I can't fix it D:

I aim to be posting an update at least once every week if not more, though I will cap it at once every other day in order to give everyone a chance to reply. If there needs to be one on one events for any reason those may be faster paced.


Characters/In game;

We'll be using typical D&D 5e rules for the most part, if you're unfamiliar with those please read up on them =)

While I won't say 'no', I will discourage an 'evil' alignment character, at least at the start, you are supposed to be saving the world after all!

I am more comfortable with official D&D 5e content, but I will consider homebrew races/classes/etc. on a case by case basis. (Tashas, Xanthars, etc. included)

Your characters will be starting at level 1; Your lvl 3 archetypes/oaths/etc. will be worked into the roleplay where appropriate with a (hopefully) Zero to Hero vibe.

EDIT; ^ To add to this, please include at least two events you'd like your character to experience, within reason, this should include something to pair with when your character hits level 3 but doesn't have to.

Ability scores/Levels will go beyond the normal max of 20; I intend to toss you up against things that will require this.

Ability Rolls are 4 d 6, drop the lowest, you may re-roll 1's ONCE. You may roll two sets of stats and pick one or the other.

Pick one of the 'Flaws' off the list, suggestion is to find one that fits your character, but if you're feeling lucky try a 1d100.

Also pick your favorite critter from the list below with a note that you shouldn't pick the same one as someone else.

Alrighty I'll start us off! I'll be playing a Drow redemption paladin of Eilistraee!
For the animal I rolled a 10 on the d10 so I'll take artic fox.
I rolled for a flaw and got this (but adjusted it to fit his story) Missing the bottom two fingers from the right hand because of an injury he suffered when escaping the underdark (umberhulk got it).
I'll DM you his backstory once I finish it and the 2 events. Also I sent you his CS already 😁

I would hope to be able to start sooner than that, but I also like to give people plenty of time to see the thread and work up character sheets, etc. =)

Consider me interested! I have already had a chat with Eldrid about this and it seems cool and I would very much like to join in.
I'll go with a Forest Gnome Chronurgy Wizard (I can choose a different wizard subclass if you like)
Flaw: He keeps breaking promises due to being mostly focused on having fun with the magic that he has learned. Essentially, he is a bit of a slacker
Rolled for the animals, got probably my first choice regardless, the Snow Leopard
I am unsure where to DM you about further character information, however it may be a little difficult over the next few days due to school (I am in the AEST timezone). Let me know where I can contact you
Edit: This is my first time playing in a Forum-based game of D&D so I may be a little slow

Welcome Welcome! Don't worry, I'll be more than happy to reach out and help you through how to play the game on a forum.

As for a Chronurgy Wizard? I like it! =D That'll certainly be an interesting change for sure!

Myth-Weavers - Powered by vBulletin is a good place to make a login and create a character sheet for this. I will keep an updated copy on a different external website once we have everyone's characters in and finalized. =)

Didn't check to see if anyone else has asked this yet, but is this a traditional dnd game or a forum rp type one using similar mechanics?

We will be playing on forum since some people can't show up for regular scheduled DnD sessions due to work, family, health issues, etc.

^ As Eldrid said, it'll be a forum based, post by post game so that there are more opportunities for people to play who normally might not be able to sync up for a typical voice chat or in person game 🙂

If anyone needs help making their character sheet hit me up and I can give you a hand since I've got a lot of experience with all the classes and I know a good bit of lore. 😁

@rowean @VaraS @Andy @EldridSmith @Ace_Jaye

Eldrid was awesome enough to find this short little fifty question list that you are all free to fill out to better detail some things about your character, while I won't require it I thought it was pretty neat and will be filling it out for a lot of the more major NPCs at the very least to perhaps with some story telling details on my end.

As far as I know we're waiting on Andy.

@Stormi Were you interested in joining us? =)
