Campaign: Adventures in Phandalin

Session 11

01/17/2021
7:00 pm (EST)
Virtual
CONFIRMED Public • Campaign • D&D 5e • Game admin: Morningbird

This campaign will be a unique combination of The Lost Mine of Phandelver and The Dragon of Icespire Peak blended with homebrew content based largely around character backstories and my creative whims. Expect it all to be in line with the established lore of the Forgotten Realms. This campaign should run us from level 1 to level 7 ish. After that, we can begin the sequel if you like.

We will play using Google Meets or Discord and I will broadcast necessary maps and visual aids through that platform. OR, if the group prefers text, we can play using Discord Text. There will not be a Virtual Table Top as such that you need to log into. We will handle paperwork using DnDBeyond.com. You will have access to sourcebooks, including The Player's Handbook and The Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide and Volo's Guide to Monsters that will give you more than the basic options for your build and lots of information to work into your backstory.

All races and classes that make sense within the Sword Coast / Forgotten Realms setting are permitted. Backstories and roleplay are required, voice acting and drama is optional. This is to be a cooperative campaign. Remember, you can't win D&D, so cheating just makes it less fun.

This will be an inclusive race and gender-equal, politics-and-religion-free group. There will be no roleplay of sexual situations, sexual assault, or abuse. Keep swearing low key. Everyone will be expected to follow basic etiquette, show up on time, take your turn, and roleplay appropriately. If someone tells you that you are making them uncomfortable, don't argue, just stop.

If people have to be removed from the game to keep the peace, I will not be giving refunds.

Please update your calendar so that we can find the best regular time for everyone. Please also comment what time is best for you. I am in EST (GMT -4) Session 0 is free and required.

BEFORE YOU SIGN UP
Please check out my profile and join one of my one-shots to make sure I'm the kind of DM you want to commit to.

The price is 13 gold (approximately $5) per session. (About 12 sessions) Sequels to this campaign (there are 3) will be charged individually.

I have set the cutoff to 11/22 because we need a cutoff date. If we get 5 players before 11/22, we can go ahead and start.

Although I do have gameplay planned for tonight, we'll also be doing a bit of a Session 0.1 as we've got all new characters, I figure it's a good time to discuss the direction of the campaign.

I didn’t notice that this was pay play until after I hit the join button it’ll be fine if you boot me I can’t pay sorry. Besides I realize now that joint in on session 2 isn’t ideal.

We're meeting in the Discord voice chat at https://discord.gg/CJTtW3bB

Also, this payment is a deposit that will be applied to the first game and I will refund you if you change your mind about joining.

My plan for session 0 is to show you how I normally do things and then show you a few different options so everyone can decide what we feel most comfortable with. Normally, I use Google Meets (we do not have to use video) and broadcast the map and other visuals as needed. I am also setting up a Roll20 sample to play around in. Each has its pros and cons. Google meets feels more like sitting around a real tabletop to me and it works well on phones, Roll20 has more bells and whistles and is also more resource-heavy. We can also just stick with Discord as the simplest option of all, that'll be up to the group. We will go over house rules and game style, I will ask you what published adventures you've already played and a series of additional questions to feel out what sort of character you want to be and the mood and direction of the story. My goal is to make the game just right for you. Then we'll do a quick getting-to-know you game scenario to round out the evening.

This sounds good to me. I liked Roll20, but I'm willing to try whatever works for everyone. See you all Sunday!

Fizzlespork is created. Have a look and let me know what you think.

To prep for Sunday's session 0, please go to the DnD Beyond Campaign I have set up for you at https://ddb.ac/campaigns/join/14751983397530340 and make yourself a character.  Once you have done that, please let us know here what your character's name is so I can match you up. I am going to require some significant backstories, but if you would like to blend your backstories we can work on that on Sunday. Just bring a feel for what you're planning and we'll flesh it out at session 0. IF YOU DON"T KNOW HOW to set up your character, please contact me here via private message or on Discord and we'll get you sorted. I am doing another free "Learn to Play" tutorial on Saturday if you would like to jump on that. You can find the signup for that at https://gylded.com/games/599

The 8th and Sundays after work great for me.
Morningbird10/31/2020 @ 5:01 pm
If you could update your calendars we can settle on a day and get started! 
Morningbird10/31/2020 @ 12:08 pm
I am looking at Session zero Sunday, November 8 at 7pm EST (GMT -4) . No charge for Session 0, of course., but it is required. Can you make it?
Wolfgang 10/29/2020 @ 8:55 pm
I am completely new to this so I may need some help
Morningbird10/30/2020 @ 9:35 am
reply to Wolfgang
Don't worry! We'll have you sorted in no time.
