Corsor – the unexplored and unheard of continent of Zaranus. A land covered by rainforest and jungle, ancient ruins from the time of infernal rule litter the wilderness. There treasure buried within and long forgotten. A land where arcane power is a gift – either through birth or through bargains struck with powerful entities. Magic in Corsor is not something that can be taught.

You have all met in The Naked Hero a relatively busy highway inn between Dorwine, the capital city of the Dominion and Limeshade one of the larger towns. The inn is well known for catering to the adventurous types and is where a lot of them end up getting their work.

About the campaign.
This will mostly be an ongoing, campaign with some sandbox elements set in a homebrew world. It would be a good idea to keep that in mind when coming up with a character. The games will be a combination of role-playing and combat along with some exploration – although the role-playing aspect will be strongly encouraged (and rewarded).

We will be starting at 1st level and using a shared stat array of 15, 14, 14, 12, 10, 8. These stats can be assigned in any order you like.

About the DM
I’ve started dm’ing back in May 2016 and previously ran two separate campaigns – one set in the more explored and civilized areas of the world of Zaranus and the other a Storm King’s Thunder campaign. I have a very limited range of voices so expect a lot of NPCs to have bad attempts at vague accents.

What kind of players are you looking for?
I generally prefer to have players that are relatively new to the game themselves. Those that have never played at all or have less than a months worth of experience will likely be given slight preference when applying. More experienced players are of course welcome to apply however please remember there will be some/a lot of homebrewing when it comes to certain rules, usually to try and make the game more enjoyable/flow better.

What race can I play?
You can play Human (including variant), Aasimar, Dwarf, Elf, Firblog, Half-elf, Half-orc, Goblin, Goliath, Kobold, Lizardfolk, Hobgoblin, Tabaxi, variant Tiefling only and Triton. It is important that you read through the setting document at least in relation to races and the nations of the world. Any application with a backstory that makes it clear you have not done so will not be considered.

What about Classes/Archetypes
Most classes from the PHB are permitted, along with those from SCAG and a number of the archetypes and classes from Unearthed Arcana are allowed. Those classes and archetypes that are not permitted are can be found in the character creation post below.

Can I play X/Y/Z Homebrew?
Quick answer probably not, longer answer check this link for the current homebrew classes/races/archetypes that are permitted in the campaign setting.

If you haven’t read it then basically the allowed homebrew/play-test material are: Mystic (UA), Barbarian Archetypes (UA), Cleric Domains (UA).

Is the current time set/will you change the session time?
Yes the current time is accurate as it is the only slot I have available. That means that games will always occur on a Friday at 19:00 BST (20:00 CEST) – I will inform you beforehand if a session will not occur for some reason.

What voice program will we be using
We will most likely be using Discord, although it would be advisable to have Skype as a backup – please do not post your Skype details publicly. If you are invited I may ask you for them in case of any issues with Discord.

How long is a session?
We’ll be aiming to keep session around 3 hours, but will usually try to make certain to come to a natural or suspenseful resting point before finishing the session for the evening. It should be noted that session may go on for up to 4 hours – although I’m usually willing to call it early if people really need to go and get some sleep.

You mentioned homebrew rules?
Yes I did. Some of these will be simple and not affect you in any real way – mostly changing minor stats of creatures/NPCs to tone the encounters for the skill/level of the party. The others though may influence your decision to join:

  • We will be using critical success for skill and ability checks (not fumbles,those are just annoying).
  • Resurrection magic will use the system developed by Matthew Mercer.

What should I include in my application
At a minimum a character name, class and race along with any previous experience you have with D&D or other role-playing systems – note massive amounts of experience is not always a plus. A backstory of at least a few hundred words – and no more than two A4 pages relevant to the setting should also be included.
