You slowly blink the weariness from your eyes, looking up at the scalloped ceiling. There are other people here with you, that much is evident, but you've been captured. As far as you've seen, there's no way out from this situation, you have no idea how long you've been here or even how long you've been unconscious. It's up to you to attempt to find your way out of this predicament. As you look around, you can see a number of different people locked in the same cell, but none of them seem as eager as you.Game:
I've been looking to take part in a game running the module Out of the Abyss for some time. Unfortunately, it appears that I came a little late to the party to join the one that was advertised her previously, but that does give me the opportunity to run a game of my own. At the moment, I'm looking for a party of roughly 4-5 players who are able to post multiple times per week (I've noticed that play-by-post games tend to drag and people lose interest quickly if the posting rate is any slower than this). Tone and Theme
Out of the Abyss is essentially a dark DnD take on an Alice in Wonderland story. It can be quite a dark narrative at times, but has more than its fair share of whimsy and levity. With a blend of seriousness and ridiculousness, I'd call it a game that is dark and has moment of real horror without dipping into being grim or gritty. Characters
As far as rolling characters, anything located in the Players Handbook or Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide is more than welcome. As far as Unearthed Arcana is concerned, simply ask me before getting your heart set on it, as some of the builds they've put up (Looking at you, Variant Ranger) are kind-of ridiculous. A balanced party in terms of skillsets would be nice, but honestly 5E runs pretty well with just about any party compilation, so please don't feel like you have to roll a certain class to fill a niche. Occassionally its exciting when a player party has some glaring gaps in their abilities.Applying
If you're interested in playing, simply shoot me a PM including the following:
Name: Character name
Race and Class: Just an idea of what type of loadout you're going for
Playstyle: You don't need to get into specifics, just give me an idea of their attitude and how you'd like to play them
Background: A rough idea of the character background, again, you don't need to write a novel or anything.
This is just to get an idea of who might be interested and what directions they're leaning in. I'll ask the interested parties for a full character sheet if there's enough interest to get the game off of the ground (which there appears to be).
As far as the rest of the particulars of the game, I feel like that's something we can discuss as we work out exactly who's playing and what kinds of characters they're rolling up.
