About the adventure
On your way from one place to another you stumble upon a little village getting ready for its yearly open vendor market. There are tents, and tables, and hundreds of people walking around getting set up. The mayor Phil approaches you at the gate and thanks you for coming on short notice. The previous security detail never showed up and you'll be paid well! The job seems easy. The money seems good. There are a few small problems. Such as this town isn't on the map. It's very much the wrong season inside the town. And you are most definitely not the security detail Mayor Phil is waiting for. Can you escape the town? Before becoming apart of the town? Learn to play D&D in a play by post setting that happens at your pace and on your own schedule. Duet play is intended for a single player, or a couple. Working together we will craft a world where you are the hero. The price is the same for a single person or a couple, providing you (and a friend) with a highly customized version of the story to fit your character's wants. Please let me know once starting the game if you will be playing solo or as a couple. This game is billed weekly on Tuesday, but play happens throughout the week via text on my discord server. -Learn to play - High fantasy setting - High RP game play. You will be in a world with many loveable (and hate-able) NPC's that you will want to interact with. - Combat streamlined for the PBP setting. Theater of the mind, with maps and images for visuals.
How to prepare
Discord account (free), D&D Beyond Account (free) Fill out the safety survey - which I will send to you. Review the rules and PBP etiquette of the server. Have fun!
What I provide
A discord server community dedicated to TTRPG and PBP Memorable NPC's in a living breathing world that changes based on character actions... or in-action. A safety system and supportive community for new and veteran players alike.
This is a play-by-post game played asynchronously throughout the week on my discord server, you will be charged weekly on Tuesdays. I post multiple times a day 6 days a week (I take Mondays off of game updates). I encourage players to check once daily, but pressure is not placed for rapid responses. I run a rules-lite system to encourage role play and streamline combat for the PBP format. That being said, what your characters say and do will have consequences. I make efforts to weave in back stories, and encourage players to share the spotlight. I aim for immersive game-play in a cooperative environment. I do not allow PVP, evil characters, and expect players to respect each other's boundaries. I have safety tools in place on my discord server. At any time if you are uncomfortable in game or out, feel free to stop play and we will adjust accordingly. I send out safety surveys to new players, and at the start of any new game. Once in the discord server you will be assigned a role, and join the game specific channels. We will discuss character creation as a group and go over options. I have links and guides to help with this. Plus when in doubt - just ask.
Safety tools used
- Lines and Veils
