So, with people saying they are enjoying me DMing some D&D Wednesday nights, I have decided to work a bit more on my own setting. Doing so includes creating my own stuff.

So this is an open call to anyone in the Gaiscioch who would like to help me playtest some of these creations. Races, classes, spells, monsters mostly. There isn't going to be much going on, just constant combats after combats and then more combats. You would be creating many different characters of many different levels.

No prior knowledge of the 5th edition ruleset of Dungeons and Dragons is required, though as always, would help. You don't even need to be part of my Wednesday night game to take part in this, either.

I would like to have it take place every night (except Friday and Saturday nights, as well as Wednesday nights) around 8pm Eastern US time (5pm Pacific), and going for a couple hours each night. Tuesdays and Wednesdays I could do it during the daytime as well if people would be willing to do so.

 

I would provide everyone with the documentation of my creations (minus monsters) for them to create a character. It would take place over Roll20 (free virtual table top, browser-based, www.roll20.net ), as well as use my Raidcall channel for voice communication. While the Player's Handbook would be useful, as it contains more options, there are some free "basic" rules released in PDF form by Wizards of the Coast. It's about 100 pages, and details 4 classes (out of the 12 total). It also contains 4 races, but you don't need to worry about those. Basic rules are available here: http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/basicrules

Feel free to post a reply here with your interest, and the day(s) you would be interested in participating. No need for any character backstories, and you don't really need to name the characters if you don't want (dwarf fighter would be a good enough name for this). I will add the link to the roll20 campaign once I get some interest for this, then all I would ask is you leave some feedback on what you think I would need to change when it comes to anything from that session, be it any aspect of your character, or anything about the creature(s) you fought.

 

Thanks and I hope to see you guys.

I know I have dabbled some in your world back in 2013 and found it interesting.  I would gladly help some with this.  

Evenings free:  Sunday, Monday, Thursday - Tuesday winds up being home group three times a month and Wednesday's is our current mayhem.

Days - Tues and Wed afternoons work for me.

So all except Tuesday evenings I can work in some time based on how it works with the timing of others.  I may want to limit this to one session a week, two tops considering I have the Wednesdays with you, but also do a lot in ESO and got into another game to test.  Gotta have balance with the games let alone the fact I have a life and do a lot of art stuff now and back into some good Bible Studies.  And trying to figure out what I'm putting in the next magazine.  Yeah, I stay busy for a disabled body.  LOL!

Don't mess with Mama Bear, I might hug you too tight. =D

I can do anytime Thursday and nights on Friday. I have the 5th edition players handbook so making a character shouldn't be too hard.

 

(also I need something to do Wednesday nights  so if you have room in that group im more then free for then too:)

Yeah, there's no real continuity with these. It would be just a show up and roll some dice kinda thing. No story, no roleplaying, just some dull "I rolled an 18. Does that hit?" stuff going on. Nothing really profound or noteworthy, really. And if you end up using the same character next time, there's a good chance that it would be changed from the previous time, based on feedback given.

I still need to get some stuff written up, so it wouldn't be starting anytime soon. This is just mostly a interest check, as my time is taken up by work and preparing for the next adventure for the Wednesday group, as well as playing a bit of ESO off and on. Getting the free time to write stuff up for my setting is a bit tough. Ah, what I wouldn't give for the free time I had when I was unemployed. The free time was great, but the pay was the worst. Now, the pay isn't that great, and almost no free time.

So, anyone else interested, just leave your comment here. I check this daily, so it will be noticed.

So, I got to thinking. Alongside this, starting up another group? Probably biting off more than I can chew, but I am having fun DMing again, and I can't quite accomodate everyone in the current game. So, incoming new thread.
