Hello, we will be running Tomb of Annihilation! This will be the first time running this campaign, but I have read through the module and will be prepared for the first few sessions.This campaign will take us from levels 1-12 and have more focus on roleplaying/character interaction and adventure through some deadly jungles, so be prepared with a back up character!
About the adventure:
With the alluring promise of treasure, many lately have been drawn to the land known as Chult. Another reason many come to Chult is to solve the mystery of the "death curse", a unknown curse that prevents resurrection, and withers and kills those that were previously raised. A retired adventurer and merchant, Syndra Silvane, has hired you after consulting with some old friends about this strange curse. The rumor has it that the source of this curse lies deep within the jungle, in the ruins of a lost and forgotten city. Will you traverse the deadly jungle and find this lost city, solving the mystery and plundering the ruins for treasure? Or will you die and wither away like many before you?
About the game:
We will be using Discord for voice chat and roll20 for character sheets and battle maps. Each session should last between 3.5-4 hours, depending on what is happening in the story. For character creation we will be using the standard array (15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8.) for stats. For races and classes, we will be using the following books; Player's Handbook, Elemental Evil Supplement (excluding Aarakocra), Sword Coast Adventure's Guide, and Volo's Guide to Monsters (including the monstrous races, with the exception of Yuan-Ti). Characters should be neutral or good aligned, no evil alignments allowed. We will be going over what optional rules we will be using in the first session, but for the most part we will be using the rules as written for interpretation. That being said, I also believe the DM has the final say in any rulings, and the players must respect that until the end of the session for it to be properly discussed. The one outside ruling I have is I will be using Matthew Mercer's Resurrection rules (http://geekandsundry.com/use-critical-roles-resurrection-rules-in-your-own-campaign/) to make deaths something to avoid and to add more roleplay moments for the resurrection ritual.
I have been DM'ing 5e for about 2 years now, and have completed a number of offline LMoP campaigns finished SKT twice now, finished Out of the Abyss once, and ran several dungeons out of Tales from the Yawning Portal, so I am confident with the stories and with the Sword Coast to allow some deviations. That being said, I will not be strict railroading, but rather let the players choose their path and plan accordingly while still progressing the story along.
Like listed above, payment of $10 per person will be made via PayPal. First session is free, to let the players see how I run the game and how it will be played. I feel if there is money involved, then players are less likely to flake/abandon games, and will allow me to focus more on each character's story. I also promise that each week I will prepare to ensure that each week is as enjoyable as the last. In addition, if someone is not enjoying the game and decides to leave, I will refund them the previous weeks payment before we depart.
