Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Happy Holidays folks. Your neighborhood Dungeon Master Rysk is here to inform you that he is writing up a 1-shot dungeon delve for 5th level characters in the spirit of the holidays. It will be designed for 5 players and I would like to keep that limit. If it runs smoothly one day and I have the time, I would be more than willing to run it again (since all my planning will be well done and over).
I'll be off work from the 24th-4th and would like to take a day in there and run through it. It's going to be entirely made up by little old me and played with RPtools Maptools over the course of a day. We are talking several hours since there will be anywhere from 5-7 encounters and the experience level of the player (with DnD or Maptools) is an unknown factor. I live on the west coast of the US and would likely start in the morning (8 or 9am) and play until we're done. My schedule will be cleared. The exact date is undetermined, I first need to see what kind of interest I can get for this.
If you would like to participate in this I would like you to do a couple of things in a reply on this thread:
1) Let me know what days you are available for this, count my Saturday and Monday out since I run my campaign on Mondays and play in one on Saturdays.
2) Let me know what experience you have with D&D, new comers are welcome, but you need to create a character (which means having books or a Character Builder with update).
3) Let me know what experience you have with RPTools Maptools. No bias here, but if you have none I will ask you to show up a bit early to help you with token properties and macros so the game can go quickly.
4) Tell me your character concept. This can be a brief blurb on who they are, but please include a name, a class, and a race (I'm not ruling anything illegal for this, at least for now. Keep in mind this group will need 1 player of each role and 1 wildcard that can be of any other role). You should note that this is going to be a slightly corny and predictably humorous endeavor. You're here to have a fun time for a few hours, so bring your sense of humor and it should be a blast.
