Broad PC allowances. Non-strict, but the DM's maintain the final authority within this. About Me, the lead DM: Tavern founder, Roll20 and AD&D 2nd Edition enthusiast called Gold - click name to read my Roll20 Profile. The feeling of today's Tavern one-shot: 1 main quest + 2 side quests reward Player ingenuity more than Character power, while some wild monster battles may test PC abilities of varying levels. Atmosphere is high fantasy, like Baldur's Gate CRPG in the maps and rules, similar monsters to Lord Of The Rings / Greyhawk / or Forgotten Realms settings, akin to ItMeJP 2E games renowned from Twitch streaming, but with a "Tavern in the dangerous wilderness" twist where anyone might walk in like the Star Wars cantina. With the added benefit of a Player meetup of those who like 2E, person-to-person hangout with fellow gamers, and Roll20CON attendance on the day. Read on, if AD&D 2nd Edition suits you. When to Join? Now. Let's meet in 2E Tavern and play today. How to Join: Looking For Group link [LFG] -- Read the Game Description text to decide if this gaming group is for you, <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a>...

Please click JOIN GAME on the Game Details page. New Players, you may ask to join if you like Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition.

Bring your favorite character that you've played, even ones that you have on-paper at home, or played in another Roll20 game. Get out your favorite character's sheet, then enter the game tabletop. Talk to the DM when available to get assigned a fresh Character Sheet in Roll20. Type in your character. When it's done, the DM will approve and you can play in the Tavern adventures. ★ Want to roll a new Character in-game today? Please be patient as the new character process will take some time.

Chat with the DM to receive a fresh blank Character Sheet in-game, and guidance for character creation. ★ All AD&D 2nd Edition Characters can be introduced in today's Tavern game. This is for any AD&D 2E character, limited to 1 PC from each Player. Attention. I'm seriously allowing this! What? This is a rare one-shot game in-which you can play any 2E character, any class that's in the books. Any kit, any level, and any of the 9 alignments. Roll your own stats, or roll them in the game today. Or bring an existing character as described before. It will be wild. Bring or create any type of PC from anything that exists in the 2nd Edition official books that's meant to be playable. Are there limits to this? There will not be PvP, and PC's will be immune to damage or control by other PC's. Some players reading this may still be surprised or even taken aback at the broad allowances of character types. Just enter the game table, and type in the chatroom to discuss it with the Dungeon Master. The Co-GM's will answer your questions and provide the proper blank Character Sheet to fill-in your character, or to import (Plus and Pro subscribers of Roll20). Once your Character basics are typed onto the character sheet in-game, you can introduce your Character Concept to the Tavern group of players who are present. We can role-play from there, hope to form a party, & attempt to undertake adventures around the map. 10 More Reasons to Join the 2E Tavern and Play Today for Roll20CON: Get the "Representative" Achievement added to your Roll20 Profile (pictured at right from my Profile), just for joining the Tavern and entering the game tabletop, because we have more than 100 Players in the group.

Find the giant pink icosahedron on-map with your Character (it is a gigantic magenta d20 that resembles the Roll20 Logo ), and finally decide what to do with this towering magic item. You'll need PC companions to co-operate to complete this quest. Along the way there are more monsters, NPC's, and 2 side quests: Find the spotted handkerchief and play-out the Roll20CON OCCURRENCE theme (as described by Avacyn in the detailed update text of the Roll20CON forum announcement post). Extend your adventuring by meeting other Players and DM's. Feel free to make arrangements, pitch your game openings and availability, and spin-off your own game groups from this.

DM Update We have been playing for almost 7 hours!! No Sleep til Midnight. Game on! More than a dozen player-characters have come through the adventure so far today. We have openings for more, to join or observe, if you like AD&D 2nd Edition and Roll20. Spotted Handkerchief?? They completed the "Spotted Handkerchief" PROP theme, and the "de-escalate a bully's violence" OCCURRENCE theme. More info here, because these 2 quests are still available to re-play in the Tavern game. So come and play today if you want to participate in these Convention themes. <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a>... Who else wants to play today? Read the Opening message and Join our LFG link for the 2E Tavern. A Co-GM stepped in to give me a break, and I'm checking our LFG to accept a new round of characters for the night-hour adventures. We will re-start and re-run the 3 quests in a couple of hours from now, and play up to Midnight for Roll20CON. Welcome, and cheers!
