Dungeons & Dragons 5e



Waterdeep: Dragon Heist is a treasure hunt set against an urban backdrop. The adventure’s plot can be summarized as follows:
Half a million gold coins are hidden somewhere in Waterdeep. Many individuals know about the cache and are looking for it. Adventurers can join the hunt and prevent the cache from falling into evil hands.
The city is threatened by escalating tension between two power groups that is on the verge of flaring into violence. The Zhentarim, a shadowy network of mercenaries, and Xanathar, the beholder crime lord of Waterdeep, are at odds, and when they clash, the characters are pulled into the conflict.

Characters start at level one roll 4d6 take the lowest. you may also use 27 point buy. Only the players handbook. Xanathars and revised rangers from UA are allowed I may allow monstrous races but players should have a good story hook for doing so. A free feat can be added to any character Humans only receive one but you can use the Variant way to add ability scores. All backgrounds are usable please include features and proficients in your post. A backstory should be about a paragraph or two.

I will create a feedback folder for constructive criticism as a new DM I would like feedback as to what you would want to happen.

We will be starting at the Yawning portal as adventures that already know each other. Please indicate what guild or faction your character would be interested in joining. Guilds are listed in the Guilds folder. If Joining a the Xanthar , Bregan , Zhentarim Guild please include why you would work with a potentially good party and a good backstory.
I will be using the Winter season but may not be following the exact module as needed.

Posts should be about once a day not including weekends as needed. I will include a tavern to roll-play characters this will be used to indicate what group will work well together. Deadline is December 22nd game will likely pick up after the holidays.

I'm interested - I've never played 5e, and mostly have experience with Pathfinder and Star Wars, etc. Are you open to a 5e/Forgotten Realms newbie? And if so, are the only guilds we are allowed to choose the ones listed specifically, or can we choose any mentioned in your intro?

any mentioned in the "guilds" thread there are also some minor guilds to join if those dont work for you its just set up plot. I'm open to a new player let me know if you need help.

Awesome - I have a guy I've been working on for a while (thinking of using him to get started in a local AL once the holidays are over, but we'll see). I've been using DNDBeyond (with only PHB for settings), and I'm pretty much done with his sheet - just have a few questions about equipment and to fill in the writing portions. I'll likely put in my application sometime early tomorrow afternoon, once I've had a chance to write out/polish his background. That said, the specifics, like villages, etc., are going to be pretty vague since I don't know really any of the lore for Forgotten Realms.

The guilds I listed need special considerations because their technically "evil" I just want to make sure the group works well together.
For equipment take the standard from your background and class you may roll for gold per the PHB.

I'm aware the zhentarim are pretty much evil, its just that pierce is either blissfully ignorant or just doesn't care who he works for as long as he isn't doing the bad stuff. He is a thief and thats about the worst he'll do. thats why he is chaotic neutral.

Awesome! Thanks @Pale_Valkyrie, I'll have to check that out.

No problem, Realms has a lot of great lore.
