Dramatic entranceSuch a very strange feeling. As if for the first time in ages, my eyes and mind begin to focus. After more than four years wandering... no not wandering, trapped... Yes, trapped I was! Trapped by the strange eerie mists of real-life! Now after four long years I awaken to find myself in some strange new reality. The sights are the same, with familiar smells and sounds, yet somehow I know this place is different.

And so, with emotions ranging from apprehensiveness to excitement, I strap on my traveling gear, inspect my weapons, and set forth in this new journey... this new, fantastic journey called 5e!


Hi all, totally new to 5e but I have the three core books now and am excitingly brushing up on them. Iím an old school player, first with 2e then 3.5, but I must say that 5e seems pretty cool so far! Super excited to be getting back into one of my favorite past times!

Iíll have a character posted soon.

Goodmorning,

It is recruiting time once more so if you want to roleplay a character in a cool but deadly 'Hoard of the Dragon Queen'-adventure please post your character application over here: Back-Up Character Thread
In the meantime, if you would like, you can take the information at the Start of this Thread, and go to the following thread to post up your character applications. They will be considered for any future groups as well as 'fill-ins' for when a group loses a character to the 'Mysterious Dryer of RPGX'. You know, the one that eats only one of a pair of socks.
- quote Saratek ;-)

You may start reading lots of blurb in the Overall Game Forum for which you can find a number of threads to the various House Rules and other info important to the game. At this particular time, I need back-up for a group that just started Chapter two (meaning a second level character is needed) to help out a Forest Gnome Ranger/Wizard, a Half-Elf Storm Sorcerer and an Eladrin Wizard. We do/did have a Half-Orc Monk but at this point of writing, we are not sure if they are in or out :-s.

Ok, I moved it.

I thought I'd put it here because I would really like to join from the beginning, and not somewhere mid-story.

Goodmorning,

It is recruiting time once more so if you want to roleplay a character in a cool but deadly 'Hoard of the Dragon Queen'-adventure please post your character application over here: Back-Up Character Thread
This time we are going to explore within the guidance of DM Saratek who is ready to take upon a new group (or two? invite your friends and spread the word) after having helped me out with two groups when the Covid-19 took away my available time and energy. Within this co-DM shop I became more and more impressed by their storytelling skills and knowledge so with all my trust I am giving the reigns for the new group to Saratek.

Check out the prerequisites in the first post and get your character application Waiting Listout there

Hello, I have a couple quick questions. Do you allow custom backgrounds? As in, picking whatever combination of 2 skills and 2 tools or languages would fit my character? If we want to take one of the optional features, dragon scholar for example, does that replace our background feature? And since you mentioned the adventure is deadly, do you just have players roll up a new character of their old one dies?

No, but at the same time what mechanical benefits a Background grants can already be modified per RAW.

My best suggestion to you would be to find one you like, and then take advantage of Order of Character Creation Operations and RAW.

Basically, if your Race grants it or you select it as part of your Class Skill Selections, And Then you are supposed to be granted it with a background, you can select whatever skill or tool you like to replace the Background Proficiency. I do this often. My most recent druid picked up Stealth from Outlander because she already had Survival from Druid.

Yes. These Optional Background Features replace the feature one would have received from their Background

Saying the adventure is 'deadly' is more or less just hype. While characters can die during the adventure, much like any adventure, I've not seen any characters actually STAY dead yet in multiple groups. The healers in Greenest got True Ressurection mastered, it seems...

But as always, if you manage to get your character killed, you will be free to reapply with a new character should you choose to.
