Campaign Setting

Set in the Forgotten Realms on the Moonsea region approximately 150 years after the events of the 2nd Edition module Ruins of Adventure and the Gold Box video game Pool of Radiance. Adventurers are needed to protect trade and defeat the lawless.



Type of Game

This is a Drop In Campaign. It has a long running story arc, but players are not expected to make a commitment as with a traditional campaign. One Shot players are welcome to "drop in" for a single episode. We try to have everyone bock at basecamp by end of the session.



FG Version:

FGU Ultimate. No license needed by players.



VTT Addons:

All of Rob2E’s actions and effects along with the Syrinscape SuperSyrin subscription and Syrinscape sound triggers in game.



When:

We are scheduling Episode 21 for Friday 3/5, 2030 ET (UTC-5) to 2400 or a little later depending on where we can find a stopping place. Additional time slots may be requested by the players if schedules need to change.



Characters:

We do not require Adventurer’s Legue (AL) Rules As Written (RAW). All character components from any 5EWotC publication are allowed. 5E WotC UA classified as Play Test is allowed, but you will need to code the character class in FG. If you are signing up with less than 24 hours before the session this means you are skipping any Session 0 help with creating a character. You must create your character on your own using Fantasy Grounds, import from D&D Beyond, choose a pregen character. New players will start at 3rd level with 2700 gp.



Alignment:

We don’t use alignment as a game mechanic. Your character and NPCs are all individuals acting in their individual, societal, guild, religious, etc. Best interest. Your character won’t be penalized for inconsistent behavior to an alignment. If you want to be evil or good all the time that is up to you. If you're evil before you've had your morning coffee then welcome aboard!

The Pillars:

Social Interation: High

Exploration: High

Combat: Low



Voice/Text/Video:

Voice and Text will be necessary. Bi-weekly voice sessions will be live group session. In between adventures downtime will take place in a play by mail format on the off week (not real time). You can relax and wait for the next voice session or have your PC or loyal NPCs do simple side quests or tasks to increase your wealth and influence. Webcams are optional. Privacy and anonymity will be respected if you don’t want your true names or faces revealed.



Recording, Podcasting, Livestreaming:

DM reserves the right to record the audio session and video record the FG program to produce a text based recap that will become part of the adventurers journal distributed to the party. No livestreaming or podcasting unless the players want to go public.



Pricing
