Willing to take two more to make a maximum of eight characters.

Current ApplicantsWIP denotes missing sections or listed as such. Others have all sections though feel free to continue to edit or add to them. I'll review them fully each time I choose players/characters

Please let me know if you have added a character and don't see it added to this list within a few days.

Note: This game is taking rolling acceptance. We plan to accept no more than four players by the end of the first week (21st October) and then up to four more before the ad closes. We've decided to accept up to eight players for this game as that should provide more interaction whilst still being manageable.





Game Description:

The small village of Heawold is neither big nor special in any particular way. Whilst not prosperous the halflings who call it home are a generally very content lot. They live their lives busy producing fine wine and food that they enjoy as often as possible and occasionally trade to the dwarves of Nuledzar and the Goblins of Gorbul Town.

The dale they live in is quite safely tucked in between the Mountains to the North and West where little bar dwarves and the occasional grumpy giant live, the crowded trees of Ewnham forest to the East - the domain of Goblins but the have been peaceful for many years, and the cold broken tundra and forests to the south where very little bar tall and ancient trees grow and only the occasional bear roams.

However last night the village was raided. Sengo the sentry was struck from behind and sent tumbling out of his watch tower. The two nurseries-schools were entered and some sort of drugged rag was used on the inhabitants whilst they slept to keep them that way. All of the children around the ages of seven to fifteen and two of the nurses were taken.

Only those children whose turn it was to stay with their parents and those few in the small hospital remained safe.

A small party of villagers sets off to find and return the missing children and the two nurses. None has any illusions about the world outside the village being anything other than scary, unfriendly and outright dangerous. The furthest any of the villagers has been is to the dwarven city of Nuledzar’s outer gate or to the edge of the Ewnham forest to trade.

.......I so wanted in on this. Then realised it was 5e. Apologies! So wanted a halfling sword sage to get in on that party.

You're not applying, so I won't tell you how impossible that would be fluff-wise.

I've been waiting for a 5e game
You definitely sound like my kind of GM. It sounds as though you've been reading my OOC posts lol
I'll see what I can come up with...

@LoD what's wrong with 5e?

Are you sure none of the info you've posted breaks this rule?

5. Confidentiality. As part of your participation as a D&D Next playtester, you will receive Playtest Materials that

How so? It isn't derivative, it's a change into the system itself. It isn't renamed or something.

You're referring to the character sheet examples?

They do allow online play tests (as of or prior to the 2nd iteration of the play test I think) so online character sheets should be allowable. Where to draw the line at with having too much detail I wouldn't hazard to guess. I can reduce the amount of detail if need be.
