Good night or day, friends
I've been thinking of running a D&D campaign on here for a while since I can't DM anything irl, so I got myself a campaign book that looked cool, read through the setting and the lore a bit, and I'm willing to give it a shot. When it comes to online DM experience, I've run part of "The Dragon of Icespire Peak", a roleplay which has kind of died down mostly through my own fault, but I'm looking to do it better this time.
I would mainly be following the storyline of the campaign and the ruleset of D&D 5e, but obviously with some minor adaptations to make it more interesting to play online.
Which adaptions would that be, you ask? I'm honestly not 100% sure yet, and it will definitely be a bit of trial and error. I want to keep the original ruleset as much as possible (since it obviously works), but make some changes to allow for the slower pace of online posts. Combat will be slightly different and the focus will be more on character interaction.
I do aim to keep this campaign friendly to both veterans and newbies to D&D, so all are welcome.
If you have already played Storm King's Thunder before or know what happens somehow, I do ask that you let me know so we can work something out.
I'm looking for a cast of about 10 players.
So, if there would be any interest in joining me for this sort of adventure, please shout "AYE" or just post something here. Or do both.
Here's a good ol' hype image for you all, because FREAKIN' GIANTS MAN"Frequently" Asked QuestionsWhat will be the post requirements?
I don't like enforcing a minimum (definitely not a maximum) amount of words, but I would like to discourage posts with just a short couple of sentences.
It's not like I'll be banning anyone if they don't write enough, but I ask everyone to try to give your imagination and your co-players some things to work with.
Same goes for grammar: if you show that you're at least trying, I'd say a few mistakes here and there can be forgiven.
What level will we be starting at?
We will be starting at level one just for the sake of allowing a stronger focus on roleplay and character interaction, but we'll be bumping up those numbers pretty quickly
What content is allowed?
I'm going to use D&DBeyond as a reference for what is "vanilla". If you can't make your character there without adding homebrew rules, just let me know about what exactly you're looking to do and we'll discuss it!
