Okay so I'm feeling a tad bit stressed atm and to help ease some stress I'm changing my vote for my team to good instead of evil. I said I was fine either way and flexible with it, and seeing as Darth's team has 3 votes in for evil already (and Carlie is unable to play atm) and they've just done their character creating session, and Joe's team has two votes for good and two for evil (haha mine included ) I'll change my vote to good.

I did say it was first come, first serve, and since they got their shit together faster than Joe's team I'll just make this decision now. Sorry Kimble, no ties. But I want things to actually go kind of smoothly if possible so. People on Joe's team can still make a more evil character if they have a good reason for doing so!


Edit:
So to make it clear

Darth's team: Evil

Joe's team: Good

Err.... isn't that 1-4pm for us?? Aren't they 8 hours ahead?

I'll be available from 1-2:15 that day, during my lunch hour at work. I'll get home just after 3:30 and will try jump back in the discord, but I'll take a notepad upstairs to the lunchroom and do discord or something by phone while we figure some of it out

edit: also sorry for the absence, was visiting inlaws and sxc peeps the last few days

Well, it comes with practice. I can think of nothing.
I do not feel the need to occupy my mind with nonsense, just to avoid thinking about what really matters.

^Yeah it'll be 1pm-5pm for us three!
And don't worry about being a bit absent, this stuff happens, and if there's a pressing matter or thing I need you for I'll send you a message on Messenger.

I've got a few character ideas already, so I'm excited to get started.

Hey, just popping in to say I've more or less finished my character. I did the mechanical stuff on Sunday with Darth and the others in our group but now my lil' halfling has a name (Semjen Foxtail) and bio as well. Coming up with an "evil" bard back-story was a bit beyond me it's why I voted good so I went chaotic neutral. Questions:
  • Is there any information about the setting yet? I'd like to name the place where Sem comes from.
  • Are we playing with standard or variant encumbrance rules? Because according to Roll20 I'm already carrying more than five times my strength modifier in pounds and I only have my starting equipment.
I'm really curious to see what kind of builds and back-stories everyone else comes up with, so I hope it's not going to be kept entirely secret.

Edit: Our first session on Roll20 was a productive one

You can be as secretive or open about your characters as you wish. Just remember your groups are opposed so that information can and will be used against you

Also please don't feel like you have to make your character fit the mold of your group. You don't have to be evil to play the role of an antagonist. You don't have to be happy about that role either.

Re: setting. We have no concrete place for the setting yet, other than it taking place in Forgotten Realms. More info will be available prior to us starting. Just remember we're writing this scenario ourselves so the planning stage may take a little longer. We have a skeleton setting right now, lacking in specifics.

Re: encumbrance. I've never played a dnd campaign where the 'rules' were in place for things like carry capacity, hunger and exhaustion. Dm discretion will apply but, to give a rough understanding, you can carry as much as a typical rpg hero. A lot more than you could feasibly ever get in a backpack, but not enough to fully furnish a bungalow.

OK, I'll take some Necromancy spells then.

Seriously though, I know it's going to be a lot of work for you two, and I'm in no hurry. I was just wondering. Even knowing that it's going to be in Forgotten Realms means I can pick a name from here.

As for stuff being "used against me" – even though there are two opposed parties, I don't really see the other party as being enemies, since my objective is not to "win" but to have fun. Plus, player knowledge isn't character knowledge. So I don't see the need to keep everything top secret, but as you say, it's everyone's individual choice.

A typical RPG hero on a Final Fantasy forum wants 99 of everything they find.

Seriously though that's a good rule. Use your common sense, go through your character sheet at the beginning of every session and think about where all this stuff actually is.

Okay so team Good Guys is still on for tomorrow to discuss, right? Is it to 5pm PST? Because maybe I'll just do it as soon as I get home from 3:30-5.. but if it's to 4, I'll do it on my lunch break.

^That's the time Joe set, so I imagine so!

Also @Flint, I think for the fun of it I'll mention my character's name and race and class, but probably won't go into detail for a while because who knows what Darth and Joe have planned for us. But I would love to see a detailed profile for each character at some point in time, even if I have to wait til the campaign is over

Character creating is SO MUCH FUN even if it takes a shitload of time and effort for me to figure out the details
Not to mention the voice call in general was great fun and much hilarity ensued. This should be a fun campaign

Our little session last night was a lot of fun. I certainly hit the jackpot with my group.

If people would like to do another call for characters at some point I am happy to. Let me know

We drew a bearded sunflower with a potato butt

Also my character is a male wood elf. That's all I'm saying for now.

Edit: I actually wouldn't mind doing another call for character creating; I feel like I only scratched the surface/basics and still have a lot of stuff to fill out.
