About Me
Hi there, names LordofNature, LoN for short, and I will be your DM for this game. I've been DMing for going on 15 years now, played a bunch of 3.5e, 4e and 5e. I'm new to the site but been taking my time learning its in's and out's. I write a lot in my free time and love to create worlds. I'm currently running only a single tabletop game and find myself with a fair amount of extra free time so thought I'd try and put something together here. I've loved D&D since discovering an old AD&D Monster Manual in my Dad's box of random books and loved playing games like Baldur's Gate (PC version) and Neverwinter Nights (1 & 2 the MMO is okay) as well as Dragon Age.

About The Game
So the game will be a fairly combat-heavy game, with lot's of exploration and role-play to be had on the side. There will be some fairly homebrew elements of "building" though that will be done for the most part for you. I'm hoping to run this for some time, and at first, I'll be taking only a few players along for the ride. However depending on how much free time I find I have and how the game goes, I may recruit another team. The New World is considered to be massive and may take a long time to fully explore.

What I Expect From You
So I would like people who are mature and okay with going up to that PG rating limit. It is fairly Grimdark as I said, so it's not going to be all sunshine and rainbows. I want players who are okay with their characters potentially meeting an unfortunate end, and also people who are patient. Life happens, and sometimes we may find ourselves unable to get on for a period of time. That being said, I would like a minimum of 3 posts a week from everyone, and at least 1 more on the weekend. If this cannot be accomplished in a particular week, just shoot me a PM or make a post of extended absence so I know you didn't just disappear all of a sudden. The Holiday Season is upon us, so I know people may be busy, which is why I am setting the expiration date for this to be just after New Years, which gives people a month to apply and build their characters.

What To Expect From Me
With that being said, I too promise to meet that posting limit and will also promise to state if I must disappear for an extended period of time. I work full time at a job that has very weird hours (I may work 1500-2300 one night and then 1000-1800 the next day) and I also sometimes have to work weekends, so my posting will not be always every Monday at 1500.
As I said in my above post, I'm fairly casual and am not one to harp on every little deviance of the rules. If you want to try something, let me know and I'll either say impossible or ask you to make a check or something similar.

So I think that's it from me. Applications can go here, info on the process is here, while any questions about the process can be directed here. Good luck to you all
