Homebrew setting with with general plot idea, we'll see where it goes from there.

The festivle of the Turtair comet is coming upon the city, Considered a sign of great portents, the city is preparing itself for a week long celebration while the comet is overhead.

Looking at either Tuesdays or Thursdays for gaming, aiming for about 7 or 8 pm USA East Coast time. Prefer to do character generation before 1st session so we can pickup and go.

Is there enough information available to generate characters for 5e?

Oh just saw the character creation document. Duh

Seems like a surprising amount of options until you consider the break down of classes. These are you 4 basic types and with the new character design you have a surprising amount of options and so far at least 2 ways it seems to make combo builds.

Anyways, all initial spells and weapons and armor are input. Building library about 1/2 done and entering gear is all PC stuff left to do really.

Majority of work is done, only equipment, bestiary, and todays left to put into the file. Ready to do character construction, free except for Saturday, and Tuesday Thursday next week.

I will need to add Sorcerer and Warlock stuff that got released today, but that is easy to do and shouldn't take more than an hour or two. Double checking for other changes might add some time.

I work until 9 est on Thursday so I wouldn't be able to run until 10ish probably. I'm going to post 2 or 3 offerings of when I can/will run if you guys would vote or mention when would be better.

If anyone interested could please sign up, if you haven't, at http://dndnext.com/ I would appreciate it to cover myself.

World content:

The Turtair comet will be crossing the skies, this is time of celebration as the comet heralds good tidings for the civilized races. Epic monsters are slain, tyrants are over thrown, wars come to a peaceful end, and heroes rise up. When the "Heroes' Comet" comes, it is considered a sign for great deeds to be performed. How much of the legend is true and how much is from purposeful timing is hard to say, but the city of Faenvlok is the starting point of a number of adventuring parties that are going on dangerous and epic quests. The Turtair comet holds special meaning for Faenvlok as it was during the last passing that the evil dragon Redarenesk was slain by a group of heroes. What better place to be to celebrate?

I've fun about a dozen Next sessions over FG2 now, and it's been great. Here's hoping you have just as good an experience as I have had.

I used 3.5E ruleset. Curious as to which you will be going with?

Just realized that I didn't list a VoiP so we'll be using the Teamspeak server for FG.

If we can't get it done ahead of time we'll use Wednesday for Character Generation.

If you haven't all download the unlicensed version of FGII: here (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/filelibrary/FGWebInstall.exe)

Then using the Teamspeak server for FGII that someone is kindly hosting, thread for it is here (www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16907)

Then "Join Game" from FGII lobby, type in a simple username something easy to type in and then add the alias "able ogre dead ninja" no quotemarks and use a space between each word. I have the module we will be using for data up and most information is included.

Sorry I didn't catch that the char creation session was happening in time to be there. Still up for tonight. I can have a character statted out before then; won't take long to plug in the information. The recent influx of players all seem to have a pretty strong idea what they want, but I'm still willing to try whatever needs to be tested. So, if you have a suggestion, let me know.

If you had applied and didn't attend or respond back I have simply cleared up the calendar of people whose schedules conflicted with the run time, haven't responded very much, or seem to have lost interest. If you are still interested we plan to play on Wednesdays at either 7 or 8 in the evening.

Starting a bit later because of checking up on something for class, sorry for delay was waiting to see how deadlines and events would fall.

Hope it's not too late to join you guys. I threw my name down on the calendar in case you would still had room. I could certainly attend each Wed. Long time role player, owned FG and some player licenses since late 2007 and have yet to actually use it for more than table side campaign management. I have been GMing some 5E playtest sessions IRL, but that group just broke up. I am anxious to see what it's like on the more colorful side of the screen. I will hop on TS tomorrow night either way and check in. I have a Ranged / Fighter concept that I would love to give a go.

Not a problem, since you know the system you can be ready pretty quickly, all that you'll really need to do is roll stats and put stuff together on the character sheet. I have a majority of it setup for drag and drop. Spells are the only tricky bits, but I generally just fix in game.

Not sure when I will get on, 8 probably at latest. There's a Q&A session for one of my online classes that runs 7-9 on Wednesdays.

They need a melee fighter more than a ranged fighter if it makes a difference, the toughest character is the Cleric that is going a paladin route, but who is also the only healer.

Putting together new computer and getting it setup took longer than expected, so might need to cancel or delay due to being behind on classwork, will update later.

I'll also have to update the alias as well as its probably going to be different.

BigBrutalisk
September 19th, 2012, 21:31
Any updates on if its canceled or not?

Mgrancey

Possibility that I will be taking a class that runs until 8:30 starting next week, I won't know for certain until Tuesday as I would be using it to replace a class that I want to instead take in the Spring, but I need to graduate.
