Beyond the Wall Seeking: 1-2 players (newbies welcome!) Day/Time: Wednesdays at 9 pm EST Platform: Roll20 and Discord For over a millennia, the Whitestone Wall, a massive 300-foot insurmountable and impenetrable marble construction, has stood in defense against the outside world. Whether it was crafted by powerful wizards or by the gods themselves we might never know. It has always been there and has held up to the strongest siege weapons and magic that we could throw at it. The pristine marble shield has stood vigil over the peaceful kingdom of Teris, surrounding it on all sides like a comforting embrace and guarding from the countless legends of monsters, demons, and wars of the outside world. No man has ever been able to go through, over, or under the wall or learn what truly lies on the other side.That all changed with the Sunshadow Festival, a celebration of the first solar eclipse in over a thousand years, on the eve of the new year. The skies were set ablaze with a terrifying bright blue fire that raged over the entire kingdom. It was over quickly, but it was enough to disrupt whatever magic that made the wall impenetrable, as it was soon discovered that there was a crack in the wall. Word quickly spread and before long that crack was expanded into a gateway big enough to fit a single person at a time. But none dared to enter. Even the soldiers of the kingdom's small royal army refused their orders, with some even abandoning their posts and risking court-martial. Within days proclamations rang across the land. "Seeking the stout-hearted and strong-bodied to venture where none have gone before". So, do you have what it takes to brave the unknown? Do you crave a life of adventure, danger, and exploration? Will you go beyond the wall? Hello there! I've been working on a very large homebrew world for an
absolutely massive sandbox campaign and I'm in need of some more
The game will be a "hexcrawl" with a heavy focus on
exploration and discovery. The world is filled with tens of thousands of
hexes filled with interesting encounters, locations, and stories.
You'll have to survive in the wilderness, chart the unknown, explore
ancient ruins of past civilizations, and uncover the mysteries of this
world, all while working towards your own personal goals.
I would say that the game is 50/50 with roleplay and combat, but it's
really more like 110/110, because not only do I really lean into the
roleplay side of things and try to fully immerse the players, but I also
make sure that most combat is tactical, interesting, and exciting. It
is fairly Critical Role-esque. Some of us attempt to roleplay with voices, but if you're not good at it, don't worry, because none of us are good at it either!
I will be adding a LOT of new and custom House Rules to further
enhance the immersion and sandbox function of the world. I'll be
introducing these new systems slowly, kind of "drip-feeding" them to
you, so as not to overwhelm you all at once. Some examples include: Tweaked version of the Darker Dungeons inventory system with containers and slots. Equipment wear-and-tear and repairing. A robust crafting system with tiers, recipes, and rare materials. Custom travel rules. Older edition rules for movement, flanking, and attacks of opportunity. New spells and even new types of magic to discover (some even for non-spellcasting classes). New weapons and special attacks and techniques based on your weapon of choice. A "hero points" system, which is similar to Inspiration but lets you spend points to do specific things. I'm seeking ONE to TWO players to round out the second group that will be playing in this world. We will be playing every Wednesday from 9 pm to ~1 am EST .
You can be whatever class you want - most UA is allowed, just check
with me first. I typically don't allow homebrew, but if you have a
really amazing character idea, I'll consider looking at whatever
homebrew you've got to determine if it's balanced or not. Currently, the
party consists of a Bard, a Wizard, and a Ranger (though he might go
Rogue, either way still using a bow). I strongly encourage you to think
of a character first , and class/race/build last. You
need a good backstory that motivates you to want to be an explorer! I
will also be shaping the world and stories around your characters! Send me a PM if you're interested, with the following information: Name: Age: Tell me a little about yourself: Your D&D Experience (newbies welcome): What aspect of D&D do you enjoy the most? Are you available on Wednesdays at 9 pm EST? Character Name: Character Race: Character Class: Character Backstory: If you don't have a character idea yet, don't worry about it. I'll be busy most of this weekend, so I won't be responding to any applications until Sunday night.
