    Default The Faults Of Fencing

    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.)?
    D&D 5E

    2. What 'type' or variant of game will it be? What is the setting for the game (eg. historic period, published or homebrewed campaign setting, alternate reality, modern world, etc.)?
    Forgotten Realms

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

    4. What's the gaming medium (OOTS, chat, e-mail, etc.)?
    Giant In The Playground Play By Post, world anvil for character sheets, please and thanks

    5. What is the characters' starting status (i.e. experience level)?
    900 XP (AKA Level 3)

    6. How much gold or other starting funds will the characters begin with?
    Standard class SW + 20 Silver

    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?
    No required classes, but no Homebrew classes!

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

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

    10. Does your game use alignment? What are your restrictions, if so?
    Yes, my game will use alignment but not heavily.

    11. Do you allow multi-classing, or have any particular rules in regards to it?
    No multiclassing, please.

    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?
    In the Dice Roll subforum

    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.
    Later in the campaign, I will allow purchase of a house/dwelling(I'll explain more later), I wont be very critical about encumbrance and for simplicity sake coins can be magically converted to and from each other if you have enough, And if you absolutely must have a homebrew item or thing, let's talk it out.

    14. Is a character background required? If so, how big? Are you looking for anything in particular?
    Yes, please do write a background! Make sure your background leads you to Kothont Villa, in Waterdeep (There is a fencing competition and anyone of moderate skill is invited to participate, while anyone who can pay the 8 Silver is granted admission )

    15. Does your game involve a lot of hack & slash, puzzle solving, roleplaying, or a combination of the above?
    Roleplay, and Fighting Mostly, although depending on what my players want I can flex one way or the other.

    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?
    Sword Coast Adventure Guide
    Player Handbook
    DMG


    Spoiler: Plot
    Show

    Kothont Villa, ah, lovely summer home to a lovely nobleman, Oswald Kothont, regular host of a fencing tournament.

    • Oswald is a friend of yours and has invited you to watch (Free of Charge)
    • You are an adventurer passing through at the right time to watch a fight (-8 Silver)
    • Oswald has "hired" you to participate (+6 Gold and 1 Gold per Victory)
    • You snuck in (Be wary for the patroling ticket checkers)

    Regardless of how you ended up here, You are here. Sit back and enjoy the show or the fight.

    I would be very interested in this. It feels as though it has a 7th Sea vibe to it. I probably will make fencing fighter, then.

    I am super interested in this, probably making a ghostwise halfling monk (not sure what tradition, but probably open hand)
