No weight limit on equipment? Nice.
No pre rolling stats. Care to elaborate on that?

Last thing, can give us a summary of the world and type of mission we will be going on? It'll give me an idea what type of pc to play.

Hi,
My character would be a Teethling Paladin, with a bit of an odd personality. He comes from a noble background, though it is not a typical one. The man that raised him, giving him his nobility, slew his parents when he was very young. After slaying them, he took Durza (my character name), and raised him as his own. His nobility comes from the heritage of his foster father's bloodline as paladins who have served kings in the past.
**I'm new to the site, so I'm learning my way around still. I'm also totally-blind, so please excuse any formatting oddities. Thanks for your time! (I'm newly blind, so explaining what things look like won't be an issue. I still remember)

So encumbrance is not going to be used as starting equipment alone usually encumbers you.

No pre rolling stats means stats will.be rolled before start of game.

So far as the world and mission. I took a map from my fav book series and found out if you do it to scale its 5 times the size of the original super Continent of earth. So there is a lot of territory to cover. Sand boxing will occur. There are kingdoms to the east and the west is more "unclaimed" wastes.

Your mission, becomes clear from your into to the world, but that would give spoilers and I can't have that.

Titus, thank you for the heads up, I am sorry to hear of your unfortunate circumstance. I will do my best to be as descriptive as I can.

Name: Captain Ssithiss Snakeblood
Race: Yuan-ti Pureblood
Class: Sorcerer(Divine Soul) 4/Cleric(Death Domain) 1
Background: Pirate

Description:
Literally a cold blooded pirate! Not actually cruel, just indifferent to suffering. Probably works as a Privateer, if it fits in with the campaign/world, as he prefers to work within some kind of rules.

So the campaigns underlying plot will be you know of a coming Armageddon. You are trying to prevent it. How you know will become clear. But this will be your common goal.

Good luck JaegerZero! I remember when I first DMed, it wasn't pretty, but we all have to start somewhere. You can do it!

Welcome to the strange and wonderful world of DMing. I offer you the advice I give to all new GMs: If you give the players the choice between 'right' and 'left', expect them to go 'up'.

A few quick questions:
How will you plan on rolling stats? I would rather not play if it is something crazy like "Roll 1d20 for each stat individually."
What sort of land does this campaign take place in? Is it a typical fantasy world where you may find a pillaging band of orcs or a roaming troll around each bend, or something more unique like "Halfings have enslaved all other races" or "All magic is illegal"?
Lastly, may I inquire as to which book series you pulled the map from? As a bookworm, I can't help but be curious if it is one I have read.

Stats are gonna be 4d6 drop lowest. 1 re roll of 1's and 2's
This place is so large that in the wastes alone you could run into a pack of gnolls to a hoard of orcs and other wonderful creatures.

Books were throne of glass series

And the kingdoms will have differing policies on magic.

Like divine, patron and nature casters are fine but arcane are regulated like the psycore in babalon 5

At the risk of being pedantic, the ad doesn't say only PHB, it says no UA. While I see some non-PHB subclasses, I'm not seeing anything UA?

Anyways, I'm interested, so this a placeholder post of sorts. One question:
How optimized would you like characters to be? Alternatively, how deadly is this campaign likely to be?

EDIT: I'm actually going to have to withdraw my placeholder. Have fun, everyone!
