D&D Encounters Season 12 - Against the Cult of Chaos
Cost: $0.00
Level: 1

First Session: Monday -- June 17th, 2013 -- 7:00 PM
[Eastern Time]

Approx. Length: 3 sessions

This is the 12th season of D&D Encounters. This season is the first season that can be run in either 4th edition, or D&D Next. Make sure the DM tells you which rules he is using. There were meant to be 8, 90 minute sessions. That means they can probably be finished in 3 sessions.

This season is very open ended, you can choose which direction to go and what to investigate. The Encounters, even though they are numbers, can happen in any order, determined by the choices of the players.

If 4E, you may use any source to create a character, Essentials or non-Essentials. Everything is allowed. "Themes" are also allowed.

In D&D Next, you can use the latest packet.

An ancient evil stirs in the Caves of Chaos, chipping away at its prison, while the forces of chaos converge on the nearby town of Hommel Lane. Monstrous raiders, marauding bandits, and missing villagers portend a terrible fate for Hommel Lane, and the world, if unchallenged.

Aug 5, 2013 4:33 PM - hayterade: Hey guys I am really sorry but I am not going to be able to make it tonight. Kick some butt for me.
Aug 5, 2013 4:33 PM - hayterade: Hey guys I am really sorry but I am not going to be able to make it tonight. Kick some butt for me.
Aug 1, 2013 6:04 PM - Kyle: Does anybody know how to contact whoever runs this site? Apparently I butt-hurt some people by posting my game and I'd just like to set the record straight.
Jul 29, 2013 6:31 PM - Cris A.: I might be five to ten minutes late - if that is the case, don't worry about waiting to get started. I'll hop right in whenever I get there. Hopefully I'll be there on time, though. :)
Jul 29, 2013 12:14 PM - AVacc: We are on for tonight....
Jul 26, 2013 10:46 AM - AVacc: Great job last night guys. I added on Monday the 5th - See you all again next Monday the 29th! Have a good weekend!!
Jul 25, 2013 2:51 PM - AVacc: No worries. We will likely start right at 7 because we have a good deal to get to so that next week can be epic :)
Jul 25, 2013 2:48 PM - hayterade: hey i will be a bit late again. i get out at 7 and will head over.

Jul 17, 2013 6:34 PM - AVacc: I have a table on the far side next to Cucina restaurant
Jul 17, 2013 1:04 PM - AVacc: No worries. We will be there...
Jul 17, 2013 1:02 PM - hayterade: hey, just a reminder i will be late tonight, but just like 15 minutes or so. i work at 57th and 10th until 7pm so i can just grab a cross town bus when i get out. also for next week, mondays are better for me but i can make it thursday.
Jul 16, 2013 1:09 PM - AVacc: Yikes. I was afraid of that - Back to Thursday OK with everyone else?
Jul 16, 2013 12:58 PM - Cris A.: I actually made plans for this next Monday once the schedule was switched, but it's okay if I have to miss it.
Jul 16, 2013 9:52 AM - AVacc: This week we will play TOMORROW and next week we will play on MONDAY. Let me know if you have any questions or issues. :)
Jul 16, 2013 9:51 AM - AVacc: And just to keep things interesting I have moved the last session BACK to Monday.
Jul 15, 2013 8:14 AM - AVacc: Correct - Level up to level 2 and we will play on Wednesday at CitiCenter.
Jul 14, 2013 7:49 PM - Connolly206: Yes, level 2' and the game is this wed evening if I'm not mistaken.
Rob bring pics of the new baby!!
Jul 14, 2013 11:08 AM - Rob R: It's been awhile and with everythin going on I'm in a fog of confusion..... did we make 2nd level?
Jul 14, 2013 1:11 AM - Kyle: Are we playing on the 17th? It's on the calander that we are.....
Jul 11, 2013 12:27 PM - Rob R: Both dates work for me
Jul 9, 2013 6:19 PM - Cris A.: Both the 17th and the 25th work for me.

Jul 8, 2013 9:25 PM - Kyle: My number got cut off, it's 914-282-4722
Jul 8, 2013 9:23 PM - Kyle: Happy new person, dude!!! Any day next week is fine by me, just please send me a text when you know/decide which day we're playing. I never officially joined the game so I don't get message alerts. I can't get online at the end of my workday so I actually went to the Citi Center tonight. Urgh, but it's my own fault. got some writing done, though. I should have more down by the end of the week, so AVacc, please check it out on Google Drive and let me know what you think. My number is 914-2
Jul 8, 2013 3:02 PM - Rob R: Thank you everyone. I will be as flexible as I can be (considering a new-born just burst onto the scene). The only day I CANNOT reliably play is Friday because of an existing recurring weekly game. Other than that I will attempt to adjust my schedule to accomodate everyone else.
Jul 8, 2013 12:58 PM - hayterade: Hey congrats man! That is awesome. See you guys next week!
Jul 8, 2013 12:35 PM - Cris A.: Congratulations! So skipping tonight? That's okay with me. Unfortunately I can't make a Tuesday game on the 23rd. Could make a Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday date that week, though.
Jul 8, 2013 10:29 AM - Connolly206: Works for me
Jul 8, 2013 10:18 AM - AVacc: Does Tuesday the 23rd work for folks?
Jul 8, 2013 10:16 AM - Connolly206: Ron that's fantastic news. So happy for you.
Jul 8, 2013 10:15 AM - AVacc: Woah! Congratulations!!!! - why don't we skip this week. Two away might be a little disruptive and the rest of this week is a little tough for me (and Rob, probably :) Remember next week we play on Wed!
Jul 8, 2013 10:07 AM - Rob R: Well, unfortunely I will be adding to the bad news or actually posting good news. I am happy to share the news - the birth of my second child this morning. So while the my extended family is estatic, I won't be able to play tonight. Sorry (kinda).
Jul 8, 2013 7:54 AM - Connolly206: Big toe lvl 2:
Jul 8, 2013 7:54 AM - Connolly206: hey team.My flight is already being pushed back an hour so its highly doubtful I will be back in time to join in tonight. sorry for any difficulty this causes. im going to link my character here. Rob would you mind playing a second character tonight, or you can all just say I took a night off to pray with the druid to the old gods.
Jul 6, 2013 7:20 PM - AVacc: You folks can level up to level 2 for the next session.
Jul 3, 2013 4:55 PM - hayterade: hey so for the 17th i may be late. I work till 7 across town at 57th and 10th but i may be able to get out of work a little early depending on what is going on here. otherwise i will be a little late. i can just grab the crosstown bus and be there in like 15 minutes.
Jul 1, 2013 6:05 PM - Cris A.: I might be 5-10 minutes late in arriving (although hopefully not). If that is the case, please feel free to start without me! Don't want to hold up the group.
Jun 30, 2013 5:48 PM - AVacc: I need to reschedule Monday the 15th - We can discuss it at the game Monday (tomorrow) night.
Jun 25, 2013 8:20 AM - AVacc: Don't forget to vote next to our names to the right.
Jun 25, 2013 8:19 AM - AVacc: My pleasure. And there is stuff and junk behind the door!
Jun 25, 2013 7:19 AM - Connolly206: Art, Thanks for running the game last. I'm looking forward to the next time.....what's behind that damn door!
Jun 24, 2013 6:27 PM - AVacc: I got a big table in the back by the elevators
Jun 23, 2013 9:19 PM - AVacc: I will also bring some Pre-gen Characters in case someone would like to chose one...
Jun 23, 2013 7:12 PM - AVacc: we are absolutely on for tomorrow night at citicenter.
Jun 23, 2013 5:49 PM - Connolly206: Hayterade, have you figured it out? If not i can help if you need.

Art, I want to confirm also that we are on for tomorrow.
Jun 22, 2013 6:59 PM - hayterade: hey so i have been trying to make a character for some while now and it seems to be much harder than previously imagined. is there any advice or such you could give me to help me along. i was thinking gnome for no other reason than i think they are cool and i like being funny and sly. i haven't decided on a class yet. i have all the 4e guides on my computer.

Thanks for any help :)
Jun 21, 2013 7:31 PM - AVacc: hayterade, Please feel free to join us. It's best if you have a character before we start but if you need help we can get you cooking at the table. Welcome aboard!
Jun 20, 2013 3:13 PM - hayterade: Hey guys i really really really want to be a part of this. is it ok that i have never played before? i am heavy into larping, rpg video games, and magic, so i will be able to pick things up quickly. if not i will be saddened, but i would understand.

mondays are my day off so i will be able to keep coming without a problem.
Jun 20, 2013 2:58 PM - Matthew: That's ok. Thanks for letting me know. I'll just have to get some reading done this weekend to make a new character like the old one.
Jun 20, 2013 6:53 AM - AVacc: Matthew, sorry but there is not easy way to convert a next character back to 4E.. If you need help with a level one character let us know and we can help.
Jun 19, 2013 10:32 PM - Matthew: I made my character for NEXT is there any conversion I'll need to do for playing in 4e or can I just use them as is?
Jun 19, 2013 7:08 PM - Connolly206: No problem Art, I'm actually being selfish because I really want to play this.
Jun 19, 2013 7:04 PM - AVacc: let's do 4E I haven't had time to do the conversion
Jun 19, 2013 7:02 PM - Cris A.: Did you guys decide if this would be NEXT or 4e? I don't see any final confirmation in the comments here.
Jun 19, 2013 5:40 PM - AVacc: Thanks!
Jun 19, 2013 5:14 PM - Connolly206: Okay, it's up on the meetup. That should fill the vacant spots.
Jun 19, 2013 5:03 PM - Connolly206: No trouble at all. Ill put it on the calendar there for the 24th and attach the link from here for people to sign up.
Jun 19, 2013 4:58 PM - AVacc: Sure, if it's no trouble.
Jun 19, 2013 4:32 PM - Connolly206: Do you want me to post in the main meetup forum?
Jun 19, 2013 4:11 PM - AVacc: This might be hard to pull off with only three players - Anyone know someone to ping?
Jun 18, 2013 11:40 AM - AVacc: I fixed the RSVP
Jun 18, 2013 11:37 AM - Mat T: My availability is up in the interested list. Of course, RSVP is closed now anyway :)
Jun 16, 2013 9:55 PM - Matthew: My schedule is flexible for any time after the 24-26 of June
Jun 16, 2013 6:20 PM - Connolly206: I can be flexible. I'd really like to play this so ill try and make it work whenever it runs
Jun 16, 2013 4:38 PM - AVacc: Is there a schedule that would work better for folks?
Jun 16, 2013 10:48 AM - Martina: I'm gonna have to pull out too. Just got heads up that Monday's going to be a long work day for me. Sorry for pulling out last minute.
Jun 13, 2013 9:56 AM - Sam K.: Think I need to pull out unfortunately. Calendar is starting to get fuller than expe, but I hope everyone has a great game!
Jun 11, 2013 6:27 PM - Mat T: I'll be in another country on the 15th, so I may have to drop.
Jun 11, 2013 4:25 PM - AVacc: We are going to stick to the Monday schedule. - I am going to move it forward one more week because I have a conflict I cant fix - sorry for the confusion!
Jun 11, 2013 4:23 PM - Connolly206: I can be flexible (and easy' though not as easy as Dan) I'd rather not do Fridays, but again, can even probably figure out how to make it work if it comes to that.
Jun 11, 2013 4:16 PM - AVacc: and I had heard you were easy ;)
Jun 11, 2013 4:16 PM - AVacc: Ha - thanks, Dan
Jun 11, 2013 12:45 PM - Capt_Dan: I'm easy! I pushed over to Weds...
Jun 11, 2013 12:35 PM - AVacc: OK it looks like Dan is running on Mondays - I cant do Fridays - What other day works for folks?
Jun 11, 2013 11:45 AM - Connolly206: Art,
Do we have a set date for this yet? I'm excited to play. Andrew
Jun 5, 2013 6:22 AM - Mat T: If it gets pushed later I'd have trouble with it, since I'll be out of town on 7/15
Jun 4, 2013 2:07 PM - Tommy T: Put me down as a hard maybe. Gotta see how my schedule pans out.
Jun 4, 2013 1:25 PM - AVacc: Let's hang in there for a couple more days and then I can shore up the dates. I need to talk to Captain Dan re: his Cthulhu campaign, which I am playing in. I can't swing two nights a week.
Jun 4, 2013 1:16 PM - Sam K.: Is 7/1 a firm date? If so I'll have to leave/free up space.
May 29, 2013 6:05 PM - Matthew: Can't play on the 24th. Could I still participate in the other 3?
May 22, 2013 11:40 PM - Mat T: I'm curious to try out some Next stuff I haven't touched, but I'm fine with 4e too
May 20, 2013 11:23 AM - Sam K.: I'm on standby for the 7/1 Cthulu game, but will stick in this one if it's ok.
May 17, 2013 7:46 AM - Saj: Lol, I forgot I cant play on Mondays.
May 16, 2013 10:46 AM - AVacc: Saj: if you can come out Monday night I am running an Introduction to NEXT - Character creation and a down and dirty adventure based loosely on Caves of Chaos
May 15, 2013 11:11 PM - Saj: I am hoping to play using Dnd Next rules. I missed the Mines of Madness games. I want to get my dwarven defender on.
May 15, 2013 9:38 AM - AVacc: I am going to move this out a little it so I can play in Tracy's game...
May 1, 2013 3:57 PM - AVacc: I too have a preference for 4E but I am happy to run either.
May 1, 2013 3:54 PM - T Michael: Given we will be playing Next in the Mines of Madness, I would vote for 4E in this one. I would prefer greater racial and class freedom of choice.
Apr 30, 2013 4:56 PM - Matt L.: I'm anxious to try Next but I'll be satisfied with 4e.
Apr 28, 2013 10:21 AM - Rob R: Slight preference for 4e.
Apr 27, 2013 8:17 PM - AVacc: 4E or Next?
