Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Roll20

Dungeons & Dragons 5e


About the adventure

Ever wanted to play a a broken, overpowered untested, fantasy character,?, well now you can with this one simple trick, just join the game This setting is Unique, cause i made up!, i have 3 current groups very much enjoying the setting and their rather OP characters. Everyone likes to be strong, fast, cool, or dangerous, this setting adds some uncertainty to dnd, there is more ancient tech floating about then magical items, old relic from past ages, strange machines, worshipped as gods, some imparting permanent 'investments " for trade of material, services, just because. Add several of these Investments to any 5e character idea, Here is an example ( a crowd favorite) 11) While your old companions perished after a trap was set off your survived, but awoke with a hardened metal shell growing over your body, it is slowly replacing your organic components with a hollow set of plate( imagine animated armor or a helmed horror) additionally you can also consume precious metals and gems to recover spell slots and injuries, this Investment is a double edged sword, gold pieces heal your body at a rate of 1 gp = 1 hp, copper and silver will grant the same result but their totals must equal the value of a gold piece, so you need to consume 10 silver, or 100 copper to recover 1 hp. Spell slots are recovered at the cost of 1 platinum piece, or 10 gp, the level doesn't matter, just the cost, precious gems grant the amount of their value, in gold, magical items, can also be consumed for a amount equal to half their market value, or decided by the dm, jewels and artifacts can also be consumed( up to dm their value. The magical shell grants you a bonus 4d10 hp permeant added to your hp maximum, upon getting this investment, and an immunity to necrotic damage. the shell will continue to grow and consume you each time you consume the total value of 10, 000 gp, each time you will gain more hp and a new investment for free. There are over 40 investments to choose from and you can have as many as your Proficiency bonus or PB. i like rules, but noticed people love to be OP, so now you can be! The setting is completely homebrew and I'm running out of characters to tell you,, but its dnd 5e on a 'world" where the playable races are descendants from ancient space faring refugees, that survived a great war, there is a continent sized construct called the crucible, that people venture int for power, profit or to understand what the hell is going on. There is a massive 6000 word document that tells you the games timeline/storyline, but it wont fit here. Happy to help new players, but this isnt vanilla dnd.
