Campaign: Tales from the Yawning Portal (Foundry Text Chat)

Session 1

02/24/2021
7:00 pm - 10:00 pm (EST)
Virtual
CLOSED Public • Campaign • D&D 5e • Game admin: Morningbird

Drop in sessions. Every other week on Wednesday. I expect these to run well into October or longer.
Text-only on Foundry VTT.

Episode 1: The Sunless Citadel: Part 1

Level 1 Official races / classes with starting equipment only.

Here's how it works: You are not committed to this campaign. Each session stands alone and each session is for the level indicated regardless of whether you played in the previous session (each episode is for a higher level). However, if you do return, you may bring whatever treasure you gained in previous sessions. It isn't quite a campaign and you don't have a lot of choices. Each session has a set mission and we will play until the mission is complete, so these sessions may run longer than my usual 3 hours.

About Foundry: Foundry is a Virtual Table Top. You will log in to Foundry using an ID that I will provide and you will be given a token based on your character's description (you may use your own image if you have one) which you will move around the maps during combat. You do not need to download anything but you will log in through your browser. Foundry works best in Chrome but does not work in Safari. As far as I know, it works fine everywhere else. You must create a character on DnDBeyond in the campaign linked above and I will pull it into Foundry. Then, you can either manage your character in Foundry or in DnDBeyond as you prefer but you will not have access to Foundry between games. If you have the Beyond20 Chrome extension. you can easily manage rolls and everything between DnDBeyond and Foundry.
Foundry has its own text chat system (and audio and video, but we won't be using it) It makes cute little chat bubbles above your character icon

While we will be communicating via text within the Foundry VTT,  we can also communicate on my Discord server if you like https://discord.gg/pPgqnqU

Note that schedule dates may vary. (Edit- That is, the dates are the same, but what we are doing on those dates may change. I will update them as we go) Some adventures will need additional sessions to complete and some will be quicker.  Experience tells me that we're going to spend a good portion of session 1 farting around with the technology so I'm going to go ahead and move everything ahead by 1 week now and continue tweaking as we go along.

Nevermind LOL, I see you have been running foundry for a while. If you want to chat modules or whatever I would love to. Foundry and VTT set up is a hobby of mine :)

Cool idea. I'm excited to see how a text-based game runs in Foundry. Looking forward to getting started.
