Hello Adventurer! The Sword Coast Adventure Realms (or SCAR for short) are now open for new players, and we are looking for people interested in joining an ever-growing and evolving community, set in the West Marches style of D&D 5th Edition. Who are we? - The SCAR community is a collection of players from all over the world, where our characters live and adventure in an open-world style server that is always moving and changing as the time goes on. Instead of a single, party-based campaign, SCAR is more like an MMO-style online world, with multiple storylines existing all at the same time. Everything is player-generated and driven; from the economy and shops, to world events....everything that happens in SCAR is a result of what you the player and your character do in your adventures. Who can you be? - SCAR uses both standard 5e races and classes, as well as selection of homebrew content that is always being tweaked and added to, to give our players even more choices on who they want to play as in our world. We have content from Xanathar's, SCAG and multiple other source books that we have all integrated into our world, and are adding new ones all the time! How do you play? - We use Chronica, Discord and Roll20 for our games. - Discord is where all our main chat, roleplaying and out-of-quest activities all take place. We encourage characters to interact with one another outside of actual quests, to give them depth and life as well as further drive their own stories and ambitions beyond simply working a job. We also use full voice chat and streaming on Discord for those currently questing, and for others to watch as they play! - Chronica is a relatively new website (created and owned by two of our very own DMs!) that brings the out-of-game world to life with shops, faction pages, your character's inventory and more! No more imagining it, now you can actually see items and gear your character has, as well as visit all of the shops, churches and locations around the Sword Coast! - On Roll20 where our actual quests are played, we have several Pro-level DMs with premium content from sourcebooks and of our own making, dynamic lighting, background music and more! When do we play? - All the time! There are no set, weekly quests like in a typical campaign. Our team of DMs create and run games as often as they can - sometimes you can find 2 or 3 quests posted in a week! So don't worry about having to make a commitment to the same time slot every week - you sign up and play when you can and are able! We post games at times friendly for both NA and EU timezones, so there will likely always be something available to you! - Even when there are no quests, the server is always active with roleplay, character interaction and the daily bustle of the Sword Coast, so you will never feel left out even if you did miss a quest. Is it free? - 100%, absolutely free to play ! The DMs use paid subscriptions on their accounts for sourcebooks and Roll20, and donations to our server are always welcome and appreciated, but there is no cost for you to play in our world! Where do you sign up? - Right here! If you are interested in joining this ever-growing world of ours, simply reply to this forum post! Give us a brief description of you as a player; your experience with D&D 5th Edition, your familiarity with Discord and Roll20, and what you are looking for in a community of players like yourself. - We will try to respond to your post as soon as we can with a Private Message, to further the interview process and get you ready to join our community. (But please be patient, as we all do work and live outside the computer world!) We look forward to hearing from you!
