5th Ed Adventure
« on: November 03, 2015, 01:21:50 AM »
I am considering running a 5th ed adventure.  I want to push plot and character choices. I want to ideally have it fairly active and hoping to see multiple posts a week by players.  I tend to be active, so it is my hopes I can respond at a moderate pace.

Common and uncommon races.

Level one characters.  If there is more interest, I will post creation format.

Consider me interested, actually :) Already have a few ideas I'd like to explore.

I am interested, although I am slightly on the bus(t)y side... I can likely do three posts a week, but more than that is pushing it :)

I'm interested in a D&D game, and I've been keen to try 5E. I only have the free PDF that's online, will that be enough to make a character?

The free PDF does have the core rules and it has most classes / races.  If you want to explore something outside of the book, free free to contact me and I will be glad to work with you.

So for character creation, I am viewing a mid strength campaign, largely as it justifies me being merciless and you all being heroes. 

For this reason, I am going to be having stats be done on the points system, using a 32 point module, so higher than the recommended 27 point from the book.  Stats are redeemed at the following point amounts.

8 - 0 Points
9 - 1 Point
10 - 2 Point
11 - 3 Points
12 - 4 Points
13 - 5 Points
14 - 7 Points
15 - 9 Points

For now, I think I am going to restrict it to 5 players, but if there is a large interest, I am willing to open a parallel game in the same open world. (Different story / angle while allowing the actions of one story to affect the other)

Besides that, creation is standard rules for a level 1 character.  I will emphasize that I will be allowing many of the variant rules for 5th ed.  The emphasis is to be more role playing than roll playing.

I know I haven't posted any details regarding the game.  Plot/story/some basis to work off of. 

I don't plan to.  <_<  I want people to work more developing a character they want to play then one they feel would be appropriate for the campaign.

I think your modifiers next to your abilities are completely inaccurate, but you seem to have them reflected properly elsewhere.  That being said, if you are using base human template, it is +1 to all abilities, which would put your base stats at 8, 13, 14, 15, 13, 15.  With those stats, you used a total of 35 points and are overspent.

As a wizard, you have the list of spells that you know.  What spells do you have prepared for day one?  You have 2 1st level spell slots.  Also, you are a 1st level wizard with an intelligence modifier of +3.  Your prepared spells should be 4 as I recall.

Editted the sheet to add what you asked for.

I don't understand what you mean "how am I gaining advantage on Insight, Perception, and Inspection checks" because I'm not.  The sheet simply lists the values if I have advantage and if I don't.

Misunderstood what you ment on your sheet.  Most people tend not to put that on that and it is actually a good thing to do for that.  I was originally viewing it as you did have advantage instead of the +5 bonus when you are at advantage.

Character is approved.
