Additional Details

How to prepare

Once you have your character created, all you will need to have is a webcam and mic. Headphones are preferred to keep ambient noise out. If you have dice, great, if not, no worries. Combat will be handled on a shared keynote document that can be easily manipulated by anyone.

What I provide

I'll be providing maps and information through the shared keynote file as needed.

Gameplay details

This is a homebrew campaign setting that is somewhere between Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones. When I run a session I strive for a balance of role-play and rolling dice. Creative skill checks may be require when dealing with an irate official, or navigating a treacherous forest. Combat is run online with a simple link to a shared keynote presentation that anyone can manipulate. I may do accents or voices from time to time, but, fair warning, I am not an actor. I run a PG-13 game, and my philosophy is simple — If you're not having fun, I'm not having fun.

How will character creation work

Characters will begin the adventure at Level 1, and should be created beforehand. My recommendation is that newer players keep to the original Players' Handbook in character creation to keep from being overwhelmed by choice. However, this is your game, and if you have a another sourcebook or character concept you'd like to use -- and I can reasonably fold it into the mythology of the campaign -- then play what you want. Know that if it's not official content, I will need to approve any home-brew races or classes. I have only one request, to please keep the character names in-world. If you have questions, please reach out.
