Additional Details

How to prepare

If you wish to be a part of the live streams, you will want an adequate mic and possibly a camera. Most players use icons or images rather than appearing on screen, but players are encouraged to participate as much as they want. We use our own dice, so players may use live or virtual dice . As a game master, I believe in an honor system, so need to "prove dice rolls" or whatever are required. We do recommend having an electronic copy of the character sheet, only for record purposes.

What I provide

I have all the maps available, for use during game, and players may download it for their own use. Members who remain with a campaign consistently for more than a month are rewarded by being placed on the Goodies Registry, and will receive swag from time to time as a result.

Gameplay details

As the content varies from session to session, and themes are broad and expansive, We utilize a pre-game 'session zero' to insert new players into the games. That same period of time is also available for any players to express concerns or issues about the session. While we don't specifically use the "Luxton Technique' ours is an Open Table (players pop out or in as they need for extra-game activities, and bio-breaks and other interruptions are commonplace. Further, every session has a short post-game debrief opportunity, so concerns or issues can be brought up collectively or privately, as the players require.

How will character creation work

Feel free to build your character from any published books from Dungeons & Dragons 5E. During our Session Zero, we will work out the details on how that Character can fit in the Nycos story. Do realize that beings with a dimensional background (Tiefling, Aasimar, Genasi,etc. will have difficult story integration, so will take a bit more time to explore in the process. All new characters start at first level, but the quick ramping of 5E catches players up rapidly.
