Welcome to a Play by Post of the 5th Edition of Dungeons and Dragons. My goal here is to start out simple and then explore both the official adventures and some "unofficial" homebrew settings. We will be starting with the D&D 5th Edition Starter set adventure Lost Mines of Phandelver. If interest is steady, we will continue with Horde of the Dragon Queen.
The adventure takes place on the Sword Coast, home to fabled city-states like Neverwinter, Waterdeep, and Baldur's Gate. You are part of an adventuring company based in Neverwinter. It was at one of the innumerable taverns that your company ran into Gundren Rockseeker.
He has hired your copany to bring a wagonload of provisions to the rough-and-tumble settlement of Phandalin, a couple of days' travel southeast of the city. Gundren was clearly excited and more than a little secretive about his reasons for the trip, saying only that he and his brothers had found "something big," and that he'd pay you ten gold pieces each for escorting his supplies safely to barthen's Provisions, a trading post in Phandalin. He then set out ahead of you on horse, along with a warrior escort named Sildar Hallwinter, claiming he needed to arrive early to "take care of business."
So I'm looking for 4-5 players. Players can roll 4d6k3 (raising all low rolls to 8 min), point buy, or standard array (15,14,13,12,10,8). All races and classes are allowed, including variant human. Characters will actually start at level 2 for a variety of reasons. Recruitment will stay open until Monday, 7pm eastern. I generally post sporadically throughout the day and with mostly be available after 5pm est. If we do get more than 5 players interested, I will try to be as equitable as possible. Please roll in thread, but you are not required to keep the rolls if they are horrendous. For your backgrounds, please try to stick to the PHB or the starter set pregens. I can post those if people would like to see. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have.
