I have been planning on running a Dungeons and Dragons campaign here for a while now, and I believe that I have enough ready to begin. This will be done using 3.5 rules, and set on a subcontinent of Rotaretilbo's Schorenbeln that I have created.

I am willing to take up to eight people for the game. If you would like to play, post your email address. It will also be helpful if you have either MSN or Skype, as creating characters via email can be somewhat difficult.

If you have any questions about the game, you can email me at renegadexiii@gmail.com, or you can use this website: www.d20srd.com.

Player Characters
1. Rotaretilbo (brebuga4@gmail.com)
2. Friend of Old (friend_of_old@hotmail.com)
3. BlakeII7 (blakeii7@live.com)
4. DunC (greenday44221@hotmail.co.uk)
5. Arvedui (ash.win.13@hotmail.com)
6. Briguy (briguy54321@hotmail.com)
7. Undeadsniper55 (red_hawk_nyy@hotmail.com)
8.

Took you long enough, can't wait for it to start.

The only thing I plan on using MSN for is the initial creating of characters. The rest is going to be on this forum, as I do not want another situation like what Rot had to deal with.

Is there really any point in me saying in at this stage? Once again I pre-ordered and played the beta it seems.

Wish I could play, but I don't know how. Unless I had assistance, I can't play. Looks way too hard to learn.

I need to think of a new sig.

Allow me.



This should explain the basics.

But really, DnD isn't all that hard to learn. It is very complex, but most of the complexity is on the Dungeon Master's (henceforth referred to as DM) end, so you, as a Player Character (henceforth referred to as PC) won't have to deal with much of the complexity.

I guess then I'm

So basically all you do is create a character, roam in the dungeon and win? How exactly do you win? And what characters are good to pick?

You don't "win" you only lose your social life.

You don't ever really "win" the entire game, but rather you win a series of quests and encounters, not necessarily in a dungeon. Basically, the game ends when GE runs out of ideas for quests and the like. The reason DnD is so much fun is replayability. There is no railroad plot that, once beaten, makes the game practically worthless, like most other RPGs. Character creation is probably the hardest part, and it isn't all that hard. It's just a lot of information all at once. GE should be able to get you through it with ease.

Sort of. You begin by creating a character, and then you choose what you do after that. There will be quests you can complete or ignore. The quests will normally involve fighting enemies and solving puzzles. The quests generally have some kind of win condition, such as kill the enemy leader or obtain some random object.
How exactly do you win?
This is actually a difficult question. In most DnD games, there is no winning the entire game. They often go indefinitely, until either all of the players decide to quit, or the DM decides to end it.
And what characters are good to pick?
That depends on how you want to play the game. If you want to be a violent fighting type of person, you probably want to be a fighter or a barbarian. If you want to be a magic user, you probably want to be a wizard or sorcerer. Each class and race has advantages and disadvantages. It is up to you to decide how you play. All I do is sit back and plot your demise by planning quests.

Alright, we are going to go ahead and begin creating characters. Rotaretilbo, Friend of Old, and BlakeII7 are already done.

We will do this using a spreadsheet and MSN. My MSN is renegadexiii@gmail.com

The only ones who I do not have on my MSN list are DunC and Briguy. So, either contact me or tell me your MSN and when it would be good to contact you. The best time to contact me would be on the weekends, but I do have time between my classes on most days.

We will still see if we can get two more people to join, but if not, six is still good.

As far as I know, FoO is a sorcerer, I'm a rogue, and Blake is a ranger. I've heard tell that Arvy is a paladin, as well.

Alright, so far we have two rouges, one sorcerer, one paladin, and one ranger. A cleric would be very good to have, but, you can try without one.

Arvy and DunC, just be on when you can. This weekend would be a good time.

Also, something everyone should think about is a background story for your character. Where did they come from, what happened in their past, things like that. If you have questions, ask me.

I thought that Clerics are supposed to HEAL people, but at least this way I won't end up dead by a sword, as long as the pox doesn't clam me first. -_-
