Adventures In Goblin Slayer

How to Dungeon - Forum
Dungeons & Dragons 5e


In a world of fantasy, adventurers come far and wide to join the Guild, in order to complete contracts for whatever jobs are available. Where the characters in this story do not carry proper names but are instead named by their professions. Most adventurers later became known by their abilities or Class. You're not there yet.

You're a fledgling Adventurer whose just spent the last of your gold to register with the Adventurer Guild and made it to Akiba City. Outfitted in your starting armor, weapons, backpack and rope you're out to make a name for yourself and become an Adventurer! This is your story. How do you wanna tell it?

What Makes An Adventurer
You never stopped following your dreams- you have always wanted to be an adventurer for as long as you have can remember. Now, "adventuring" in this sense is not the same as the dragon-slaying heroism typical of in-play adventuring. Really, a more accurate description would be along the lines of "helpful grave-robbing", and probably involved a lot more sneaking around, running in terror, setting traps, and possibly taking credit for the work of others, or complete strokes of luck.

  • your parents were adventurers,
  • you were rescued by a group of adventurers who then raised you,
  • you ran away at a young age to become an adventurer,
  • you grew up in an adventurers guild hall,
  • you're just starting out new and fresh to the profession.

Whatever the case is, you are willing and able to do work that nobody in their right mind would even consider. As an adventurer, you will likely travel extensively, encounter violence and death, are comfortable around magic, and have likely seen many a strange, terrible, and wonderful thing. Many professional adventurers use a sort of professional slang or jargon resembling game terms, such as referring to people by their perceived "level", or ranking enemies by supposed "challenge ratings".

What took you down this path, and where has it taken you? Are you pushed by some driving goal, or flee from some terrible thing? Or do you just go wherever the money flows? Are you an experienced team member, or are you more of the loner riding in the back of the cart? Were you trained up to be a professional, or did you learn by experience? What kinds of adventures will you have? What amazing sights will you vist? How will these experiences changed you?

Welcome to the World of Goblin Slayer.

A word on Co-GMs
I'll except 1 or 2 more CO-GM's if someone would like to do this. This allows for more people to enter the game and play. CO-GM's need to read the CO-Gm thread on the main page. You're expected to run adventures as well as play in others. I have enough for 15 people. But if someone applies as a CO-Gm I can have a slot for 3 more players.

Anime Setting
Please read the Disclaimer on the front page of the forum. It states how this is an Anime style of D&D 5th edition. So will be a bit campy, dark and tropey at times. More information can be found there.

Game Description:

You're an Adventurer.

Adventurer (冒険者, Bōken-sha) is a term that is associated with individuals who undertake official quests offered by the Adventurer's Guild.

Adventurers are individuals registered under the Adventurer's Guild, regardless of race or ethnicity, whom undertake quests offered from the Adventurer's Guild and complete them in exchange for a monetary reward.

The nature and fatality of these requests can vary, from monster subjugation, escort, investigation, etc. To ensure that the adventurers are fairly compensated, there is a bare minimum sum that has to offered, by the poster of the said quest, as stipulated in the Association's rules and regulations.

It is not compulsory for an adventurer to form a party, as certain adventurers are well known to be able fend for themselves and manage alone. However, the likelihood of survival and success in carrying out quests would increase should they form a party.

Trying Harder To Play Better
UPDATE: Gonna play some games.
Game Update

We've currently filled 20 slots out of our limit of 24 and two quests still openly recruiting new adventurers. There are only a few applicants left, so there's still time if you've been on the fence.

In addition, we may be taking on another GM, which will mean we can take on another 6 adventurers (to a maximum of 30) and more quests will open up as a result.

What's more, we've opened up free-roam role-play, so whether you're on a quest or just waiting to sign up for one, you can still role-play alongside others in the main city that the games all take place in.

With these things in mind, please come join us!

Considering a spot, and have a friend who may also be interested! We're still reading up on the chargen details, but the premise is extremely interesting, to say the least!

Two questions:

Am I correct in understanding that only a single PHB class is allowed, i.e. no multiclassing outside of the Adventurer class and a single PHB class?

Is the UA Revised Ranger an option, or only the PHB version?

That rule has been lifted. You may now multi-class freely, however your first 4 levels will be in the Adventurer Class. Upon hitting 4th level, you gain 1 level in Adventurer and 1 level in a PHB class of your choice, so in actuality, you're level 5 when you reach level 4. Then at 6th level you can either level adventurer, level your chosen PHB class, or take levels in another PHB class. The level Cap is being adjusted to Level 30.

Yes, I believe the Revised Ranger is approved per @MadHatter

I'm currently working up the xp rules for Level-30 character and what not. Sorry for confusion.

So...If one manages to get the loading property removed from crossbows, can they be used with the Volley ability from Archer?

You can't get the loading property removed. You can ignore it with the Crossbow Expert feat. So if you took Crossbow Expert feat. You can use the crossbow with the Archer volley ability.

I certainly hope someone can make a Pathfinder version of this. Happy gaming.

Game Update

We've added another GM, which means our player cap has been increased to a potential 30 players! We currently still have 7 slots open for new Adventurers, and one quest still openly recruiting (with more likely on the way with the new GM addition).

Come join the family!
