Date: Friday, June 1, 2018 Time: 4 PM PDT / 6 PM CDT / 7 PM EDT / 23:59 UTC June 1 If the date and time are no good for you, let me know when is! I may run the scenario again if there's interest. <a href="https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.h" rel="nofollow">https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.h</a>... I am a GM looking to start a group for an easy one shot (a game that takes only one session to complete). I plan to host a series of these, and each session should complete a small story or two. This is great for both beginners and experienced players. I have played and GMed hundreds of hours of tabletop RPGs, and hosted many one shots on Roll20 as well as successful months-long campaigns. The adventure will be run on Roll20, but players will be invited to join D&D Beyond where I have a Master Tier subscription that grants access to digital versions of the PHB, MM, SCAG, XGE, VGM, and Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes. It also includes their Character Builder and searchable databases of the spells, items, and monsters. This game will require payment to the Game Master at a rate of $5 via PayPal for the one session. Roll20 is not responsible for any payment transactions and cannot enforce any private arrangements. Campaign Background The Death Curse is ravaging the lands of Faerûn. Resurrection magic no longer has any effect, and those who have been magically resurrected are withering away and dying once more. By obtaining the right leverage over a lich, a group of brave Harper agents learned that the source of the Death Curse lies in dark jungles of Chult. People with varied aims are flocking to the tropical peninsula from all over Faerûn. Some seek to help the Chultans in their time of need, others to profit from well-backed expeditions to the interior. Meanwhile, dark forces are using this as an opportunity to seize power. Your party has arrived at the only metropolis left standing: Port Nyanzaru. Seek out wealth, fame, power, and maybe even carve a name for yourself in the history books. Campaign Features The adventure is built around city exploration and working to help out the local inhabitants. It's a healthy mix of combat, exploration, and role-playing. I expect the session should take about 4 hours. This adventure will be run as part of the Adventurers League (AL). If you've never played AL before, there's the D&D Adventurers League Player's Pack , but basically you can just fill out a sheet at the end of the session that tracks your progress if you want to play more D&D in the organized play system. If you've never played D&D 5e before, checkout this video series: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoW2CDgztKY&list=PLJmFJXf3BXjwXkNFo_-iwtHb24AuJcXqx" rel="nofollow">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoW2CDgztKY&list=PLJmFJXf3BXjwXkNFo_-iwtHb24AuJcXqx</a> The Basic Rules for D&D 5e contain all the rules you need to get started for free: <a href="http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/basicrules" rel="nofollow">http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/basicrules</a> Read the Introduction and Chapters 7-10 (29 pages in total). Character Creation The adventure is for 1st-4th level characters. If you're new to AL, you start at level 1. Pre-generated character sheets are recommended for new players and are available at <a href="http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/character_sheets" rel="nofollow">http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/character_sheets</a> Pick any of the 16 and use the 1st-level sheet. Characters should be created based on the AL rules: point buy, no rolled starting wealth, PHB+1 rule, no homebrew. All AL options are available. If you're making a custom character, I have all the player options on D&D Beyond and can share them with the players. This includes use of the character builder and the full text of the books. Alternatively, I recommend OrcPub2, CharForge, ForgedAnvil D&D 5E Character Generator, or MPMB. Application (3-6 seats total) Please post applications and questions here. 18+ only. Voice with Discord is mandatory. Please use push-to-talk. 1) Describe yourself and a bit about your roleplaying experience 2) What do you enjoy most about tabletop RPGs? 3) How did you find my LFG? 4) What made you pick my LFG post? 5) Do you accept the payment requirements for the session? Why paid GMing? 1. Defray the content costs. I'm hoping to use the money to buy some Marketplace content on Roll20 and more RPG materials. 2. Prevent flakes. Players (and GMs) are far more likely to show up and be on time if there's payment involved. 3. It takes a lot of extra time to GM. I spend about 2 hours per game-hour prepping. Reading the adventure, taking notes, cross-referencing rules, finding and making tokens, finding and making maps, setting them up in Roll20, adding NPCs to Roll20, going over character sheets, and organizing the session all takes a lot of time outside the game. It's part of the hobby, but as I'm having to put in prep time I'd rather not have to spend so much on the content costs too. LFG Listing

Hi, I am interested in participating in a session i have some experience as a dungeon master but none as a player so i look forward to enjoying the game and learning something new about GMing.&nbsp; 1) I'm a senior in college and have hosted a couple (~4) dnd sessions and have always wanted to try the game as a player. I'm also in the process of organizing my own dnd game on ROLL20 with my college friend group. 2) I have always been a fan of turn based combat (X-com, Fallout, FFT) so that is a big draw for me but i also have enjoyed discovering and developing stories and characters (still not very good at it). 3) Found it on the ROLL20 forums. 4) You made a nice layout and overall professional presentation, the adventure setting is also nice (TOA). 5) I accept and think the price is reasonable for one session.
Hi Lex, I'm interested in trying out an AL game.&nbsp; The game sounds interesting and works well with my schedule this week. 1) I'm a numbers guy, work as an Automotive Engineer in Tennessee. I'm fairly new to TTRPGs and have only played a single one-shot and am currently in a group that meets on Sundays weekly.&nbsp; I still consider myself new and eager to learn. 2) I've always enjoyed turn based games and is mainly what I turn to on steam.&nbsp; The idea of developing a character's story through game play is exciting. 3) Searching "Join Game" and forum for one shot AL games. 4) The explanation of your game is well thought out and interesting, which leads me to believe your GM skills are the same. I'd very much like to find a group that I could stick with eventually long term, so attention to detail is important to me. 5) Very much so.&nbsp; This is also a reason I'm requesting to play your game, seems people are more serious when they pay.
