[Shadowlight] Interest Check - A D&D 5E Dual Adventure
« on: January 28, 2017, 12:15:32 AM »
I am currently looking into running a Dungeons & Dragons, 5th Edition adventure set in a homebrew world of my own creation.

The Shadowlight game will use a unique twin-adventure model; which basically means that I will be running two campaigns simaltainously that will run parallel to one another, and the actions of one group can (will!) affect the actions of the other - with both groups potentially colliding more directly at various points in the narrative. Each group will operate - mostly - independently and be run as two separate groups that happen to be operating in the same region(s), so direct interaction between the two sets will be limited but definitely possible. Of course, then you have to consider that these two groups will also be working towards opposing goals.

The basic premise of Shadowlight is thus:

White Hats: Group one will consist of the "good guys" who are working for the general betterment of the region. These individuals may be brought together by the governing body, or by some avatar of the good, potentially something else entirely. In the long run, this group will be fighting on the LG/NG/CG/LN side of the fence and trying to bring around stability in the region. They'll be illuminating the shadows, inspiring hope, and otherwise being a more traditional set of adventurers that find themselves in service to some bigger cause. They'll become champions, heroes, and legends in the eyes of those of the region.

Black Hats: Group two will consist of the "bad guys" who are working towards various sinister goals. This group will almost certainly be brought together by some pinnacle of darkness that binds them together, though their services may extend to the most corrupt of men who wish to see upheaval and destabilization in the region. They'll be working to undermine the efforts of champions, take what they please, further their twisted agenda, and otherwise, make a mess of things for their own reasons. This group will operate on the CN/LE/NE/CE side of the fence.

The Story At A Glance
Kiur is an ancient land with a turbulent history shrouded in mystery and blood. It is a breeding ground for creatures that even nightmares don't dare conjure, but also a region so rich with resources that those human-like races that inhabit it can't bear to simply give it up. They say that the land itself is magical, that sitting beneath the great mountain Kidaraan is a convergence of ley lines, the very lifelines of the world itself - it is rumored that it is because of this font of unparalleled arcane energy is what draws creatures to the land. It isn't just monsters that come for the riches of the land, though, but men and beings from beyond this world as well. All with their own reasons, their own agendas, and their own methods to making those things a reality. The secrets of the land have been passed down and lost over countless wars fought for control of the region - though always are those seeking to recover and use them for their own advantage. The people of Kiur are fractured, giving their allegiance to various political factions each with their own views on how things in Kiur should be run. Skirmishes over land are a terrifying reality as these factions fight over bits of land they claim is their own; all while the looming threats of those beasts lurking in the swirling mists that roll through the land are ever present.

Game Details
Here are some of the things that I am looking for with this interest check:

  • Shadowlight requires either 8 or 10 players. Each group will need to be at minimum 4 players, but I am eager for each group to be 5 players. That said I will take no more than 10 people on this adventure at this time.
  • I will require at least 6 individuals before I will release the rest of the information for this game and do an actual recruitment thread.
  • This is an interest check thread, not a recruitment thread. Voicing your interest is not a promise that you will be approved into the game should it reach the recruitment stage.
  • It is my intent to allow any of the currently published 5E material so long as you have access to it.
  • This campaign will unlikely start at level 1, more likely closer to 5 or 6.
  • I am not interested in running only one-half of this game - I have other 5E campaign ideas I'd rather run with a single group. If I can not find the proper support for both sides, I will not move forward with this idea.
  • Familiarity with 5E is not required but is highly encouraged. You should have at least a basic idea of how D&D functions as to not hold the game up excessively - however, I am happy to work with any players new to the system so long as you demonstrate a willingness to invest the time needed to learn.
  • The "white hats" do not need to be Dudley-do-rights. This group is meant to be a more standard adventuring party that leans to the good side of things, doing battle for a just cause. They don't all need to be saints.
  • The "black hats" can not be mindless murder hobos. While this group is absolutely meant to be evil, it should be done with some degree of subtly and grace - unless circumstance should dictate otherwise. Characters on this side of the fence will be bound together for a reason, and treachery among the ranks should be fairly limited if present at all.
  • Player character death is a thing that can happen. This is dungeons and dragons and that's part of the game. It will never be my intent to make it happen, but it's possible and you should be prepared for that potential. If during the course of the adventure your character meets an unfortunate fate but you as a player would like to continue with the adventure you will be permitted to reroll a new character and will be reintroduced to the party in a way applicable to the situation.

I'll answer whatever questions I can at this point, but right now I am mostly looking for those who might be interested in this sort of setting. If you are interested I'm happy to hear game elements that you'd like to see included, and I'll see what can be fit in so that it can be explored. Any story suggestions / themes / etc will be considered. At this time there's no point in pitching character concepts, but if you have a vague idea it won't hurt to put it out there.

So... -Clicks the interest check activation button- Who's interested?

OOOOOHHH ME ME ME! PICK MEEEEE!

I'd like to play on the White Hat team. I don't want to play a caster, so I will be looking at something physical or a bard.

However if there's an overabundance of White Hats, I can try to write up a Black Hat but it's not something that is my first choice.

I'm interested.  I think I could go either way, but probably leaning toward "black hat".  Also, should probably note that my knowledge of 5e is somewhat limited.  I've got the basics down, I'm in another game currently, but it hasn't gotten very far and I'm playing a fairly basic class - Fighter.  :p

No worries about being new to it. 5E is pretty straight forward, and if you've got the basics then the "advanced" stuff is easy to pick up when it comes up. It'd be awesome to have you on board. :D

Definitely interested.

I'm honestly up for joining either the "good guys" or the "bad guys", since I can have fun playing either good or evil characters. If I don't get to just fill in for whichever side has fewer volunteers, I'd be quite happy to flip a coin or roll a d2 to see which side I sign on with :P

Flexibility is super helpful. We'll dive into the balance of sides should we get to the recruitment thread... But it seems there's potentially enough interest in it already to warrant that.

I'm interested! I could go either way on the sides, although I've got a definite tendency to play against type which probably translates to a more shady White Hat or a more noble Black Hat.

I'd like to try a vague idea at maybe making a white hat sister to a black hat character, perhaps sent to different areas to grow up and take different paths.
Also, I'm gonna try for a monk.

It looks like we're going to have plenty of black so I was just going to go white as it was my first choice.

Probably going to do an Aasimar bard.

Well well... Interest seems to be here. I'll work on an actual recruitment thread and have some setting details worked out. Should be able to have that up Sunday at some point.

In the mean time, we can keep discussing the game and ideas here (and gathering more interest. Questions / comments / ideas / things you like / things you want... While I'm building things are the best time to give this to me. So let me know thoughts you have.

Also welcome everyone, and thanks for the support. It's always appreciated. <3

I'd like to play a Fighter of noble birth who has a mount and acts like he's better than everyone else, because, you know, nobility. I'm still good to play either White Hat or Black Hat, so I guess his alignment would be Lawful Neutral or MAYBE Lawful Good as a White Hat, or Lawful Evil as a Black hat. Actually, could still be Lawful Neutral as part of the evil group I suppose. Just from a noble family who are a bit less nice to people :D

As I mentioned in the post, interest does not mean approval. I should have the recruitment thread up tonight / tomorrow and Ill have templates for peoplle to fill out with their basic character concepts and Illl be working with them to design the characters and integrate into the world. From the submitted concepts ill pick the roster that I feel will best fit the game.

So... If youre interested you should absolutely submit a concept. Besides I think that youre still within the fist 10 people to show interest, so not too many yet!

Interested as well - prefer a white hat, but hey, I can flex.
Excellent. White Hates are always good.... haha! >.>

In other news... I'm currently working on some world building. Work has decided that it doesnt want me to do any actual work today and I cant access the corporate computers... So basically I can do nothing... So Ill do this instead. xD

Just a heads up from someone who has played D&D with Wispyr for seven years...

HE. WILL. KILL. YOUR. MOUNT. AT. ANY. CHANCE. HE. GETS. HE WILL FUCKING MURDER IT AND FEEL NO REMORSE.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

Ah, all the more reason to play a character who is Neutral on the good/evil scale. Gives you an excuse for a bloodbath! :D

Being asked nicely, one of my many dozen of weaknesses!

Okay okay are SCAG/VGtM allowed?

I could be good or bad honestly there are so many things I want to play!!!
Haha! Viiictory. xD

Yes! At this point I'm inclined to allow any 5E material that has been released, provided the player has access to it - I have it all, so I can work with whatever.

I keep trying a Tiefling Paladin, but every campaign I have joined has failed miserably.  So I'll keep trying to play him.

I do too, but I want mine to shoot laserbeams from its eyes!
I'd prefer a pink laser beam pegasus myself, but I'll take what I can get.

Not sure what I'll play yet, but it's been too long since I played a cleric despite insisting it's always been my favorite class, so I might be leaning that way. Then again, rogue could be fun...

TEASER

This is Kiur, the land that the game will be taking place in. Once the recruitment thread is up, I'll show the second part of this map that has locational names and what not and gives some point of reference for the game. From this though you can maybe start to gather some ideas about places you might be interested in and what not - all good questions once we dive into character submission and approval.

More info to come in the recruitment thread, details, etc. All of which should be up late late tonight or sometime tomorrow once I've compiled and formatted it.

Alternately, since no one has mentioned one, I think I can also go rogue.

A hexmap! Be still my nerdy heart! <3

And rogues are so much fun in 5e!
I was going to do rogue in our weekend group that [I hope] we're rerolling but she has story and it's not a real story friendly group, more killy smashy shiny loot. So I figure I'll play here instead.

Out of curiosity, what did you use to make that lovely looking hexmap? I know that mapping tools exist but I've never really played around with many, and it might be fun to get into it at some point.

Haha, well im glad that you like it, thank you!

For that map I used the website: http://inkarnate.com

I highly suggest their program. Im not as big a fan of this current iteration theyre using but they just changed to it, so theyre testing new tools.

Alright thank you. Is there anything we should keep in mind while we plan our character concepts? Specific rules that are being used, things about the setting, homebrewed options or should we wait entirely for the recruitment thread

While the setting itself is homebrewed, I won't likely be including many homebrew rule options - and any that are done so, will likely be done case-by-case as they pertain to individual characters that need them. We'll be using all current 5E source material provided that you have the information to use it.

Some things to think about though...

White Hats: What binds you to this cause? To what ends will you go to ensure that the cause is made a reality? What do you contribute to the group you're working with? What are you personally looking for? How does this arrangement benefit you? How did you get into this arrangement in the first place?
Black Hats: What are your goals and motivations? Why are you doing what you're doing with absolute disregard for anything else. Why are you willing to work as a team? What could bring you together with other people?

While some of these are vague and a bit random without the backing of the current story (which will be posted in recruitment), these are some of the top things you may want to start considering for your character. Start getting a feel for them and who they are and why they're doing what they are doing - whatever that happens to be. Then take the info in the (soon to be posted) recruitment thread and tailor your concept. Then we'll talk a bunch and flesh it out and go from there. :)

On the note of the recruitment thread... I am mostly done. I need to write concept guidelines, and what each group is doing yet. But I have most of the setting information done. So this will definately be posted tomorrow once I wake up. Once recruitment is up, I'll take setting questions and expand on the information I've provided as needed and as I see revealing being something that should be done. Some questions may need to be answered privately depending on character origins and what not.

Information in this game will be valuable, and everyone should remember that.  ::)

Now sleep for me. Recruitment to be completed in a few hours!

Interest noted and waiting for the recruiting thread. FWIW, I'm considering an eldritch knight, or maybe a druid or druid/wizard, and can play him white or black. In the first case, I think he might follow another character (or more rightly, she leads him around) probably against his better judgment if they're black hats.

All further game discussion should be moved to the official recruitment thread. I have locked this thread as it will no longer be getting support.
