TL;DR - New Story-focused
D&D5E Homebrew Campaign running on alternating Sundays 8pm EST (3hr
sessions; flexible start date). Characters start at Level 3. Gritty, low-magic
setting with detailed open-world for player-driven story. New players welcome.
All players expected to be collaborative, cooperative, respectful. DnDBeyond
paid GM subscription content support available to all players. 18+ themes but
no explicit sexual content. Free to play. Roll20 + Discord
required. In the world of Fulian, magic itself is the most precious natural resource. Capable of defeating all manner of threats to the civilized world, from monsters and sickness to starvation and even death, magic means survival. But it also means power. Nothing is more fiercely coveted than that which grants mortals access to the Arcane: namely, Books and Dust (specifically, diamond dust). Thus, consolidation and control are the rules of the day as vast kingdoms and private agents alike fight to keep the powers of magic in the hands of the few, while the many struggle to survive in so dangerous a world without it. In Fulian, folk have grown to trust only in themselves. Hope in magics, from above or below, is always a fool's hope...
Game Details Sessions will be held every
other Sunday, from 8:00pm EST to 11:00pm EST . Flexible start date (late
June/early July), with plans to continue running for several months.
Flexibility and absences are fine with advance notice. Too many
absences may result in a player being replaced. Sessions will be hosted in
Roll20, with Discord used for audio-chat (no video). This campaign will always remain free to play.
Characters will start at Level
3 and can be anything canon/printed with no restrictions on basic starting
The campaign will employ a
range of tones throughout, while overall leaning more towards serious rather
than silly . Campaign arcs will be heavily influenced by party choice and
player conduct. Individual sessions will regularly include both combat and
non-combat scenes. Non-combat encounters will feature real-time
voiced role-playing , and combat will be narrative focused. Tactical and
interactive elements will be featured regularly in combat, but minis/tiles
will not be used. Instead, quick “napkin sketches” will be drawn up as
Collaborative, cooperative, and
respectful play are required at all times to maximize everyone’s
fun. While your PCs may not always get along, everyone as players should
be able to so as to keep the story moving. So, keep it friendly and think about
one another. It’s also especially important when playing online to keep
yourself focused, out of respect for both the other players and the GM (i.e. no
Hearthstone matches in the background, even if it’s not your turn in combat).
Hi, my name’s Rose and I’ve
been GMing for a long time now. While I’ve discovered a lot along the way, it’s a
constant learning process. Rich and responsive GMing is as much about people as
it is about juicy descriptions and rules. That makes every campaign, party, and
session a unique challenge. It’s also why I love opening up
campaigns to new players every few years to try new things and share in new
stories. The best adventures are the ones shaped by everyone involved, and
everyone brings different things to the table.
As players in this campaign, you
will have free access to DnDBeyond online content through my paid Master
Subscription. This will include all of the reference content you will need to
create and track your characters (race, class, feats, abilities, spells,
equipment, etc.). This content will be non-shareable outside of our campaign,
