Gameplay details

This is my introductory game for teaching new players how to play Dungeons and Dragons. I try to open up as many games like this as possible for new players to play in. There is a severe lack of GM’s for the amount of people that want to play and I am trying to do my part to make sure that people who may be interested in Roleplaying get a chance to see if they like it. I run both paid and free Campaigns. Though this is an introductory campaign there will be options for continuing to play as well as transferring to one of my other games. Though this game is meant as an intro for new players I would love to have a couple veteran players as well and you are more than welcome to join my game. If we are a good fit we can talk about what kind of game, you would enjoy and see what I have open! The goal is not to run a few sessions and have you find a new game but instead see if we are a good fit while introducing the rules to new players. To be very upfront, I welcome all types of people to my table. I have an absolute no tolerance policy for anytime of bigotry and hatred. We have enough problems in the world right now and we don’t need anymore of this than we already have to deal with.Β  For more details on me and how I run things you should check out; My Website - https://sites.google.com/view/lina-hunter/home My About Me Page - https://startplaying.games/gm/lina_778 My Safety Tools - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kvddTD4op41U9XpPusoERjVc4hNZEIGUSzmtrx63v3w/edit I try to list everything on the content warnings that I think may come up, but may miss somethings. We will use safety tools that we will go over in session zero that will detail what each person is comfortable with a bit more in detail.

How will character creation work

I run my games over Roll20 VTT. We will make characters in a session zero using Roll20 charactermancer. If you are new to the game or these tools, don’t worry. I will be there every step of the way to patiently help and guide you through character creation. This will be the perfect time to ask questions about the game or any rules questions you may have. In this session zero we will go over some resources that I will share, safety concerns, online tools and more.
