    Exclamation LF PbP Game, D&D 3.5 or 5th edition

    been trying for awhile to get into a game on the boards here. Only been in one, and it was as cannon fodder... I don't do discord/voip as my free time is limited and i can't schedule out time to sit around and voice chat. 25+ years of gaming experience, played a ton of gaming systems over the years. most comfortable w/ 3.5, but willing to learn a newer/different system if the game is going to have some longevity. Other than that, I'm pretty much open to any power level, any level range.

    if you have an opening, or are wanting to dm something like this, kindly respond below :)

    Honestly, this sounds pretty great. I’d be very into a 5e Ravenloft Adventure, if that’s on the table.

    I've seen "LF" a couple times in the last few days. What does it mean?

    I might be interested in GMing a game for 5e. more specifically, I just got the "dungeon of the mad mage" module, and I'd love to run it somewhere. The game is of the "mega-dungeon" type, and takes the characters all the way from lvl 5 to the 20.

    OP, what do you think?

    ok. I need to study for an exam, but in the next day or so Ill post a 16 and get this running. I am pretty lax regarding to the source of a material, so I might even allow homebrew, but Im not gonna auto-approve everything. If you'd want some homebrew, please request it here.

    besides that, the game begins in the 5th lvl. More details to come

    i don't know enough about 5e to even know the difference between good and bad homebrew, i'll stick to the books unless someone points something valuable out to me :p

    i have a lvl 1 char ready, i'll advance to 5th, and then adjust for the 16 when you have that up :)

    Is it too early to start brainstorming character ideas? I’m leaning towards a tiefling wizard, perhaps a necromancer or conjurer.

    Definitely interested. My experience with 5th has been limited, but many years of experience with gaming and play by post. Waiting for the 16.

    I'm probably going to give a try to a Ranger. Not sure about a subclass yet.

    @Heavenblade: I know you tentatively encouraged homebrew, but would materials from the new Acquisitions Incorporated book from Wizards be valid? I just got it and am really enjoying it and might like to try something from it. It does have a slightly different tone, I guess you’d say.

    And what the heck, I might as well. My race choice will now be a Vistani I think (DnDBeyond Homebrew)

    The big sixteen have arrived!

    Premise
    It doesn't matter where you came from, it doesn't matter what you did before you became what you are. The only thing that matters now, is that you are heros, willing to do whatever it takes to save the day. Even if it means going into one of the most dangerous dungeouns in history...

    The suspense in the city of waterdeep is higher than ever. Rumors of a secret invasion from the red wizards of Thay have left everybody on edge. You, for your own reasons, have arrived to the tavern of the yawning portal to enjoy a peaceful meal with your party members, but it seems like fate had other plans for you...
    will you do whatever it takes to save the day? or will you fall in the hands of the monstrous dark mage, Halaster himself?



    Spoiler: Big 16
    Show
    1. What game system are you running (D&D, Call of Cthulu, Palladium, GURPS, etc.), and if applicable what edition (Original, Classic, Revised, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 10th, etc.)?


    DnD 5e

    2. What 'type' or variant of game will it be (i.e. "Shadow Chasers" or "Agents of Psi" for d20 Modern)? What is the setting for the game (eg. historic period, published or homebrewed campaign setting, alternate reality, modern world, etc.)?


    Dungeon crawl in the beginning, the later levels will be dependent on player choices

    3. How many Players are you looking for? Will you be taking alternates, and if so, how many?


    Im looking for 4-5 plyers, if there are any extras they will be the first one Ill turn to in case a spot is opened.

    4. What's the gaming medium (OOTS, chat, e-mail etc.)?


    This will be a PBP game here on the forums.

    5. What is the characters' starting status (i.e. experience level)?


    You being at lvl 5

    6. How much gold or other starting funds will the characters begin with?


    560 GP, and one common/uncommon item, +one rare item (I might ban some items if I feel they are too powerful. please be sensible when choosing items)

    7. Are there any particular character classes, professions, orders, etc. that you want... or do not want? What are your rules on 'prestige' and/or homebrewed classes?


    See Q16

    8. What races, subraces, species, etc. are allowed for your game? Will you allow homebrewed races or species? 'Prestige' races or species?


    See Q16

    9. By what method should Players generate their attributes/ability scores and Hit Points?


    You can generate your ability scores in one of the three ways presented in the core rulebooks (elite array, point buy, rolls)

    10. Does your game use alignment? What are your restrictions, if so?


    Alignment has almost no effect in 5e, but I don't really limit it anyway. I just ask you to be able to work nicely with each other, that's all.

    11. Do you allow multi-classing, or have any particular rules in regards to it?


    Multi-classing is allowed. However, I do request that multiclass makes some sort of sense, both backstory wise and personality wise. changing yourself like that is supposed to have big impact on who you are, and I want to see it.

    12. Will you be doing all of the die rolling during the course of the game? Will die rolls be altered, or left to the honor system? If players can make die rolls, which ones do they make, how should they make the rolls, and how should they report them?


    Players roll dice in the thread, I roll on my own/in the thread.


    13. Are there any homebrewed or optional/variant rules that your Players should know about? If so, list and explain them, or provide relevant links to learn about these new rules.


    Im going with base 5e, unless someone asks for a specific subsystem or something. that might change through the game, but every house rule would be up for a vote before we integrate it in our game.

    14. Is a character background required? If so, how big? Are you looking for anything in particular (i.e. the backgrounds all ending up with the characters in the same city)?


    I don't need a scroll, especially for a dungeon crawling game. I just want to know who you are, what did you do as an adventurer up until now, and what drove you to arrive to the Yawning portal in the evening where the adventure begins.

    15. Does your game involve a lot of hack & slash, puzzle solving, roleplaying, or a combination of the above?

    The game is a dungeon crawl, so lots of hack-n slash, some puzzles....perhaps even intrigue if we will decide to stray from the module into my more "homebrewed" part of the adventure

    16. Are your Players restricted to particular rulebooks and supplements, or will you be allowing access to non-standard material? What sources can Players use for their characters?

    All published wizards content is allowed, UA is almost always allowed but ask first. homebrew would be allowed on a case by case basis (Ill check your requests later)




    questions can be asked here or through PMs. the only fluff requirement ins that the characters should have a reason to help preventing the downfall of the "good side" of the realms (no need to be goody two shoes, but have some form of an interest in the good of fauren).

    Also, all of you know each other in some way (though we would discuss it after player selection) and probably have adventures together for some time now. The second one isn't mandatory, but it's really preferable.

    Can we roll, but switch to point buy if rolls suck?

    Or are we stuck with rolls if we roll?

    Ill allow a switch, sure. do note that if you have a sucky roll, but the others are good enough to build what you want, I might even prefer that type of character. being bad at something can make a character more interesting, and Ill not punish for it.

    Im not saying it is mandatory, just so you keep it in mind.

    Oh, definitely interested. I'd love to play a Bard, either college of Swords or Valor, probably a half-elf. In terms of background, I'm thinking about a low-ranking member of the city guard, an orphan who's loyal to the city and views the guard as his family.
