Its time for another round of OG D&D!

For those unfamiliar with how we play, its a very casual game. I will be DMing and making all rolls for people so you just tell me what your charactor wants to do and I tell you if you were successful or or not. 

When I post an offical "DM" thing everyone will have a full 24 hours to respond, I will choose actions for anyone that misses a response deadline, players may choose someone else in the party to be their surrogate if they think they may miss a deadline. So anyone wanting to play should be able to check on the thread at least once a day but missing a day is not the end of the world.

On my end I will TRY to advance the story every day but that can be hard at points so cut me a little slack if I cant. 

 

Sign up here to play!

I would also like to hear what level you guys want to play at. level one? level 10? I normally prefer to use the Forgotten Realms setting but if the group has a preference for something a bit off the beaten path (wildspace, Ravenloft, etc) I am willing to give it a shot.

If more than a full party wants to play I am not sure how it should be handled but we will figure it out.

OP needs to make a saving throw vs. faggotry imo. 

 

With that said, I’m in. Will you be creating our characters to begin and we just pick class?

you guys create charactors. the game is casual enough that I dont really care what your stats are other than letting me know if you are very strong or very smart etc. So I dont need a character sheet from you. Just a level, class, and description. You may have any common magical items a charactor of your level would have. Fo example a level 10 toon would most likely have a +1 or +2 sword but they are unlikely to have a vorpal blade. 

Which leads to.. When saying what level you are hoping to play your charactor at use a 1-20 level scale. Its the most common one used with the rules over the years so most people will be familiar with it.

Is this thread going to ruin an established television franchise with terrible writing and a rushed final season?

I'll play Jay. Please let me suggest you have everyone start a level 1 character. Otherwise their BS armor/ weapons/ powers will get out of hand.


But here's my character:


Name: Zinek


Level ? (you tell me- or 10 if that's the max level you'll allow) half minotaur/ half human barbarian

6ft 9in, 500lbs, built like a prime conan (but scaled up) with light coat of fur and 2 black horns coming out of his forehead.

Wields a large heavy axe (1d12 +6 strength bonus) (+3 or whatever you allow if you allow us to start with magical weapons)


He's extremely strong and a good athlete with a high constitution, but is definitely mentally slow, uneducated, can't read or write, and has all of the charm of a box of rocks.. He's a barbarian- he's impulsive and prefers to solve problems with brute force and is not patient.


Has limited infravision (30ft, as opposed to a full minotaur's 60 ft)


Here's a link to his picture (Minus the hammer)

as I mentioned if we go for a higher level I am going to limit the magic to common stuff, I want cool stuff to still be a motivation.
