Default DnD rather than poker on April 16th 2015

Welcome, everyone interested, to Dungeons and Dragons! I will be your dungeon master, here to answer your questions regarding this Thursday's experimental foray into pen and paper roleplaying!

1) What is roleplaying? It's a game of let's pretend with rules.

2) Can I play if I've never played a game of pen and paper roleplaying?
Yes! New players are welcome and encouraged to join us!

3) What edition of DnD are we playing?
None you'll find in any book! Rather than deciding on a system, buying the books, learning the system and spending 3 hours on character creation, we're gonna do it on the fly! I've got a decade and a half of roleplaying experience, and I'm gonna run a mostly diceless system of my own creation. It's designed to get us up and running as fast as possible, and leave most of the mechanics up to DM fiat. It will be more challenging for me than you, trust me.

4) What world are we playing in? A generic fantasy roleplaying setting with almost any fantastical thing you can think of. There will be dragons and dungeons and elves and dwarves and all the basic fantasy tropes. You, as a character, can play whatever you'd like. Genasi Battlemind? Ok! Half Dragon Blackguard? Sure! Human Peasant? Why not! Just know that no one person will be more powerful than the rest of the party, since there are no rules loopholes to exploit.

5) What time will we be playing? From 8:15PM until roughly 10 pm on Thursday night.

6) What do I need to do before we begin? Make a character! That's it. I'll take care of the rest.

7) How do I make a character? Just fill out the questionaire below. Trust me, this is faster an easier than the normal method. There's no math, no research and no technicalities to consider. Just imagine an interesting character, fill out the questions below, and then PM me your answers. You can post it here, if you'd like, but then your deepest secret will be revealed!

8) Are you as excited as I am? Yes, yes I am. I was sorta bregrudgingly volunteered to DM this, but now that I'm in the groove I'm really excited!


What is your Class (Fighter, Rogue, Cleric, etc.) ?

What is your Race (Human, Elf, Dwarf, etc.)?

What is your Profession (Adventurer, Farmer, Merchant, etc.)?

Pick 2 attributes you're good at and 2 that you're bad at. The other 2 are average:

-Dexterity, Agility, Speed
-Constitution, Endurance, Durability
-Wisdom, Cunning, Perceptivness, Instinct
-Charisma, Charm, Social Niceties, Appearance

Why are you useful in a fight?

How do you fight?

How did you learn to fight like that?

What can you do outside of a fight?

What makes you unique in the world?

What are you good at? (pick as many things as you'd like)

What are you bad at? (pick the same number of things as you're good at)

What is your deepest secret?

What do you look like?

What is your name?

Why do you need to find a Unicorn? How have you been going about trying to find one?

Is there anything else you'd like to add?
