D&D - Online Campaign: Recruitment

AgentPaper

From the depths, I come.
It seems we have at least some interest in starting up a Dungeons and Dragons online campaign. So far, we have Pineapple and Kc102 at least willing to play, and we need at least one more person, preferably 2, to join to play. If you haven't played DnD before, don't worry, as we can teach you how the game works as we go along. Some of the more advanced combat techniques can be a little hard to grasp at first, but the underlying system is quite simple. All you really need to be willing to do is get in the role of whatever character you make.

For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, Dungeons and Dragons is a pen and paper role playing game, which is usually played on a grid-table. The players all form a team of adventurers, who generally go around trying to save the innocent, kill the wicked, or anything else they could possibly want to do. On the other side, the Dungeon Master, or DM, controls the monsters, the non-player characters (NPCs) and the world and even the entire existence of everything in the little universe the player characters (PCs) are roaming around in.

Now while doing this on the tabletop is the normal way to go, it is entirely possible to do it online, as well, or at least we will be giving it a shot. It should be lots of fun at any rate, so if this sounds like something you would be willing to dedicate a bit of time to (I know I have to) then go ahead and volunteer to be a player. I'll most likely be the DM, unless we have someone who is more experienced and is willing to spend the time.

Players:
Pineapple
Kc102
<Empty> Need one more at least!

So how will that work? You might want to use such marvelous thing as is Ventrilo or Teamspeak. :D

Gets some action going!

Well for now we've got the RP forum. Don't know if it will suffice.

Though, I would like to actually see an online D&D game through ventrilo or teamspeak. :p

Geh, thought this was dead after a few days and no posts here. If people are still up for this, I'm still willing to DM. The game itself would just be by a thread, which works fine, people do it all the time. Another way that might work better, especially for combat, would be a chat box type thing. I don't know what we would use, but I'm open to suggestions.

Now, do we want to do 3.5, or 4.0? I'm more familiar with 3.5, but 4.0 is also new and interesting, so I'm up for either. Either way, I would recommend everyone starts thinking about what type of character they want to make. Backstory, and class, and such. I'm going to be using a certain campaign setting I've been thinking up, which would unfortunately only allow players to start as humans, though they can be Moonborn, Sunborn, or Starborn. More on that once I actually explain the setting a bit, but basically they are normal humans, born with an affinity for the sun, moon, or stars, which are also the 3 main religions (for clerics and paladins), along with Nature worship (druids and rangers) and ancestor worship. (bards)

I think a good method of communication is skype. If a lot of people join though... we might have to transfer to maybe ventrilo or something. Those ideas are only if we suggest verbal communication.

I still am having some trouble understand the basic function of a D&D game. Hopefully I'll understand soon but as for this moment, I'm still quite clueless.

it is easy once it starts.

Who here has a Microphone? If we all do then it mightbe worth using Skype or Ventrilo or something.

    I have had all of the symptoms, taste is slightly starting to come back, but smell, no. Honestly, just been a little miserable, have never felt in any danger from it. Being trapped at home sucks. lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    meh, got a little fever again this morning, guess gonna be a few more days
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I went to Comicon this last weekend I hope I dont get it I feel fine and I am not vaccinated and did not wear a mask
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Comicon really was not packed though like it was in the past. I am not really worried though it was the most people I have been around in a year.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Still, getting vaccinated is a good idea. We're getting Delta variant spikes here in Boston.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not against vaccination at all I just have a serious procrastination problem I plan on getting vaccinated soon
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    was kinda same with me, I was gonna do it, and life got in the way.
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    we wore mask in some places, but at 118 degrees outside, little rough. :)
  • The Helper The Helper:

    Pushed out a new Pokemon Walking algorithm build. With a new system in place, I'll probably start tackling triggers and NPCs,

  • Varine Varine:
    Is it fucking hot everywhere?
  • Varine Varine:
    What's a pokemon walking algorithm?
  • jonas jonas:
    it's an engine for pokemon games that closely emulates the walking behavior of pokemon red/blue/yellow
  • jonas jonas:
    basically if you wanted to implement pokemon yellow from scratch, and you'd want it to feel as close as possible to the real thing, you'd start with that
  • Varine Varine:
    Like from the Gameboy games? I'm not at all familiar with Pokemon.
  • jonas jonas:
    yeah
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I only played the Pokemon games on the Gamecube and Wii and such not on the portables my kids had all those games but I never really played on the portables. Now that I think about maybe once sooooo long ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    That's about right. I'm just emulating that old-school RPG feel on the Game Boy system. If I had more free time, I would definitely want to add more things.
  • jonas jonas:
    I guess you folks were too old, but those games were our childhoods:p
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Well, I'm about to hit 30 this year, so I'm now officially old.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hey wait a minute!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    You guys are youngsters. I am square in the middle of my midlife crisis at 52.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    How are the kids?
