Session 0: Bring Your Own System(BYOS)!

Indie TTRPG on Discord, Roll20




About the adventure

If you've got a system you and some friends have been dying to play, but no one wants to pony up and GM it, I'll be your huckleberry! Since you'll be dealing with a GM who's new to the system, and you may have to provide the materials yourself, your first session will be free, and all subsequent sessions(if you wish to continue) will be at normal price. We can meet and discuss schedules and campaign expectations, and in a week your campaign will be ready for it's first session! You can be as involved in the design process as you'd like, and I will try to be available on Discord to answer any questions you may have. I get to learn to referee a new system, and you can finally scratch that weird niche itch you've had! I see it as a win/win. I look forward to exploring new worlds with you and your friends!

Additional Details

How to prepare

I see no need for video unless you plan to be rolling analog dice so I can verify, should the system even require dice at all. Microphones are preferred, but if your group prefers to play by text, I won't deny you. Other than that, we can discuss what's needed after we take a look at your system!

What I provide

patience, a hunger to learn, and unbreakable positivity

Gameplay details

This is entirely up to you! We'll talk about what you want in depth before our first session.

How will character creation work

This can also be discussed during the Session 0, when we talk about what you want from your campaign. If you and your group would like, we can roll into character creation same day, or we can simply discuss guidelines and you all can create your characters at your own leisure.
