GM Spardan's Curse of the Crimson Throne (5e)

Game Master Spardan



Hey guys,

Please use this thread as a place for your OOC questions and discussion points, or general banter. Right now we need to decide on how you would like to generate stats for your characters, and what method of tracking combat (maps, theater of the mind etc) we are going to use. Throw your preferences and ideas at me y'all, and we'll make a democratic decision on how we'd like to proceed.

I'm a point buy fan, recently converted from rolling. I'm flexible on combat tracking, but it really matters on how important ranges and areas of effect are going to be.

Hello!


Wood elf alchemist | HP 9/9 | HD 1/1 | Insp 0
Stats:
AC 16 | Str +2, Dex +5, Con +1, Int +0, Wis +3, Cha +0 | Initiative +3 | Perception +5, Darkvision

Thanks for the selection.

For maps, I prefer either Google docs or Roll20. Both work well

For stats, I prefer (4d6 drop lowest) or (27 point buy) as a minimum.

Don't forget to open Gameplay

cheers


DOT.
Which character would you like me to run?
I like either Google docs or Roll20 as well.
I do like the point buy, just makes everyone on the same stat level.


Hi everyone,

Thanks for the selection GM Spardan. Looking forward to the game.

Stats: array, pt-buy I like. 4d6 I tend not to like, except when the GM rolls, say, four sets of stats and players choose which set they prefer.

Maps: I'm enjoying Theatre of the mind more and more, but it requires some back and forth with players, which can be more challenging in PbP.

I'll echo Jubal, opening Gameplay allows players to dot there, and then the game shows up on our Campaign page, which makes it very easy to follow. You can even delete your post after the dot and the game will still appear, while the Gameplay remains pristine.

Anyhow, looking forward to it.

I'm an "old School" roll the dice, so prefer 4d6 drop the lowest and arrange as you desire. Don't mind playing a low stat if that crops up, however I'll go along with the groups choice with no problem. I also prefer theater of mind for PbP, but once again can go either way.


Sounds like point buy is the preferred method, so let's go with 27pt buy. I think we'll tentatively try google docs for tracking combat, we can always make adjustments as we go.

@Buckshot, honestly I liked both if your submissions so roll with whichever one you prefer.

For those you you with limited access to 5e resources, please check out this link to access the campaign on my dnd beyond page.

Okies, so I am here.

I created a character for the game, but I don't have access to the phb, so I can't add the feat I'm going to take (tavern brawler). I should have my character posted here shortly though.

Edit: Here is Vrog's character. Let me know if there are any questions.


I linked my character to the game and used 27 points for stats.


I've enabled content sharing on the campaign page through dnd beyond. You should now have access to way more character options if you haven't unlocked them yourself. Good to see a couple of you guys have jumped in already, I'll start working on an opening post for the campaign thread here so that we can get underway.

Gudrugg is attached. Will make an alias for posting now.

Valor also appears to be complete! I'll make an alias very soon :)

Master Bru is ready for review.


Looks like we don't have a rouge type so, I will build mine to cover that.


Antonio is ready on DnDbeyond

The gameplay thread is up, in case you haven't noticed. You can dot and delete, and the campaign still appears on your tab.

And this is my avatar for Tania.


Hey guys, I've had a brief look at your sheets on DnD Beyond. I'm going to do one final sweep through, and once we are 100% good to go I'll knock out this initial post. I'm sorry this whole thing is taking so long, I promise that we will have the ball rolling by the weekend. Thanks for being so patient with the new guy y'all, i really appreciate it!

Starting a game is a lot of work. No worries.

And as I mentioned, I'm travelling with unreliable access to Internet, so it's all good as far as I'm concerned ;)

No worries on my part.

Please take a look at mine, first time using D&D beyond. (aka, Buckshot Bob)

Once you give it the OK, I will make a profile.

Which weekend did you mean :-)

Posting this to all my games, so sorry if you see it multiple times:

This week both my office and I personally are going to be moving. It's been crazy busy and I am not going to be able to post until Monday at the earliest. Please bot me if I am in your game, and if you are in a game I am running, I will get a post up as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience.

Many games end early, but this might be a new record. Never even one game post???


Male Human Fighter 2 HP: 22 / 22 | AC: 18 | Saves: Str:+5 ; Dex: +0; Con: +5; Int: +0; Wis: +1; Cha: -1 ; Inspiration: yes

What a shame it looked to be fun.


Any chance of someone else stepping in to DM? I guess the unique prep involved limits the qualified individuals...

And the D&D Beyond account sounded helpful.

Looks like Spardan hasn't posted anything since the 28th from any of his aliases.

I have tried PMing him here and on D&D beyond a few days ago, still no word on ether.


Given that it is unclear whether this game will start or not, I take the liberty of informing you that there is an interest check post for a 5e game in the recruitment thread.


Guess that's that then. Thanks all!

Looks like it. I'll remove my link to the campaign in DnDBeyond.

Just a shameless plug if anyone wants to play on another table as well. DDAL08-01 - The Map With No Names[5E Adventures League] is looking for players.


I am posting this to all of my games, so apologies if you see this multiple times:

Unfortunately, I have some bad news.

A combination of work-related stuff has lead to me having to take some time off from the forums. I am, in all honesty, going to need to be gone for several months, as I am going to be travelling for extended periods of time (weeks or more) and I'll likely not have good access to the internet.

As I am not someone who would want to have you all sit and wait for me here, I am going to be withdrawing/closing all of my open forum games.

I want to thank everyone who I have had the pleasure to game with over the last couple of years here, as I have immensely enjoyed my time on the forums, and hopefully, once my work stabilizes, I will be able to rejoin the community.

Thank you again for your time and energy, and I am sorry that I won't be able to keep things moving forward in any of the games that I am running.
