I think this is going to be a fun time. After looking at the core rules, I really want to explore the characters in this gritty setting with you gents.

I've signed up as well. I'm a HUGE fan of Warhammer Fantasy RP 1st and 2nd editions, and this has that same sort of feel I think. I too have to do some domestic negotiation, but I'll be there!

Hi everybody! GM touching base with you here. We've met the minimum number of players to run this event and everything is going according to plan so far. I'll share a preview of the pre-gen characters this week. Feel free to call dibs on the character of your choice. On the day of the game I'll share my server address with you. If you're new to Fantasy Grounds, please take a moment that it's in working order. Check your mic/headset and make sure you can get in the TeamSpeak server (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?17071-Voicechat!-Community-TeamSpeak3-Server). If you need assistance, please contact me asap so we can get that taken care of. I'll be on TS 30 mins prior to the game to assist you and as a meet and greet. I've already most of you but look forward to getting together with both old and new acquaintances. Thanks again for signing up for this event. I look forward to rolling the bones with you!

Enjoy The Shadow of the Demon Lord. Our gaming group enjoyed a game session run by the creator at Gary Con back in March. Robert was wonderful at running the game session and really setting the tone. Our session ended with a TPK.

Awesome! I'm really excited for this one. I saw it at my local game shop and the shop owner described it as "Diablo the table-top RPG."

I want to touch base and give Mask_of_Winter and my fellow players some praise. I had a blast with the game! It certainly captured the feel of Warhammer FRPG that I ran for several years. Looking forward to trying to find a group on FG to continue playing this! If you get the chance to be in a game with Mask, do it! He's an awesome GM!

Also...long live the Magic Unicorn! :)

Glad you enjoyed it. Always a pleasure to game with you. You always seem to catch me when I'm running a new system though hehe

I enjoyed it, regardless of it being a new system for you! Looking forward to seeing more of it on here, hopefully..hoping to get proficient and run a group myself of it!

Yay, I'm about to run a SotDL myself and Morecore was the answer so far. I wonder if we could see a Shadow of the Demon Lord ruleset in the near future maybe? I simply loved it.

Agreed, I just got the core book and it sounds like it would be a lot of fun! D&D/Pathfinder meets Dark Souls meets Clive Barker. Does make me wonder how the Combat Tracker would look since there's no Initiative. Just plop all the players there and let the GM order them in whatever order the players decide they're going to act?

[EDIT] Now that I've read a bit more, I sorta-kinda understand the Fast then Slow rounds. Still not quite sure how I'd envision the Combat Tracker displaying it though, especially sorting the players.
