Aug 18, 2014 2:40 PM - James L: Sorry I missed it. Cliff sprained his hamstring and had to seek help. Cliff did, not me. I went to Gen Con.
Aug 13, 2014 2:59 PM - Capt_Dan: James: We figured after rescuing Gundren, Cliff took his pile of Gold back to Neverwinter, to try and get famous somewhere else. He never heard from the rest of the party again...
Aug 13, 2014 2:58 PM - Capt_Dan: Hey guys, thanks for playing, I really enjoyed my first proper shot at 5e, and you were all a bit part of that. I'm a LITTLE sorry at how it ended, but hey, when the bad guys nail 5 crits, and all their saves, it's the universe telling you something.
Aug 13, 2014 9:58 AM - Eugenio: I had a blast as well. Thanks everyone! And, uh....sorry about the elf nearly getting us killed by a wraith. Damn biblio/historiophile.
Aug 13, 2014 9:52 AM - Rob R: One of my top RPG connect experiences - due to equal parts great dming, great table and great ruleset. Thanks to all again.
Aug 13, 2014 9:50 AM - Rob R: Hey guys. Sorry I walked off at the end there. I wanted to catch up with my friend for a few minutes and got caught up in a discussion about schooling, cops, civil liberites, etc. good times. ;) Anyway I wanted to tell everyone I had a great time with this mod and 5e
Aug 12, 2014 5:16 PM - Rob R: See you there. As long as it is not raining - I should get there earlier tonight - shooting for 7 PM.
Aug 12, 2014 5:15 PM - Rob R: See you there. As long as it is not raining - I should get there earlier tonight - shooting for 7 PM.
Aug 12, 2014 5:07 PM - Capt_Dan: Both, sort of; we are DEFINITELY on for tonight, unless someone comes up with a strong objection.
Aug 12, 2014 4:46 PM - Rob R: Are you asking or telling? It probably is the least disruptive to play tonight with four. Next Tuesday we would have four and would entail pushing back the start of two games. Plus we would essentially be dropping one player who could make the scheduled date for another who couldn't make the scheduled date.
Aug 12, 2014 3:27 PM - Capt_Dan: Okay; back on for tonight, and we'll have to tell James how it went?
Aug 12, 2014 2:53 PM - RayMONDsunglasses: Raymond here, I should be getting out if work early today instead of late.Since I only do freelance work, I have to take the gigs that come. If free, I would love to join any if the dates mentioned. So fat none of them ate scheduled for wirk. So far.
Aug 12, 2014 2:17 PM - Capt_Dan: Ioldis- looks like it'll get pushed anyway... okay, I'll try and sort this out.
Aug 12, 2014 2:13 PM - James L: I can't do this weekend. next Tuesday would be best. I probably cant do Monday.
Aug 12, 2014 2:13 PM - Eugenio: No problem. Good luck, guys!

Dan, I have a 5e PHB coming to me hopefully some time this week. If I work on creating a character for Dragon Queen and send it to you for approval, would you be willing to let me hop into that campaign in week 2 since I'll be gone for week 1? Just let me know.
Aug 12, 2014 2:10 PM - Capt_Dan: Okay, done. We are OFF tonight, we'll play next Monday. Sorry, Ioldis, but this is the easiest, since other games should be starting next Tuesday.
Aug 12, 2014 1:50 PM - Leon Trotsky: Hey guys, I can do pretty much any day/time. Weekdays after 7 and weekends are open currently
Aug 12, 2014 1:47 PM - Capt_Dan: At the moment, my default is to go for next Monday, and you'll have to make do without a mage... I'll rule it @3pm
Aug 12, 2014 1:45 PM - Rob R: Without hearing from Leon about his availability it is tough to get too far w/ the planning.
Aug 12, 2014 1:43 PM - Rob R: This Saturday (or next) won't work for me. It's baby christening season apparently.
Aug 12, 2014 1:22 PM - Eugenio: Whoops. Sorry for the double post. I assume you mean this coming Saturday. I could do that if we finish before 5 or 530. Monday and Tuesday won't work for me.
Aug 12, 2014 1:20 PM - Capt_Dan: sorry, fourth option - we go ahead tonight with whoever.
Aug 12, 2014 1:19 PM - Capt_Dan: one other possible option - can people make some time on Saturday? I'd like to make a decision on this game ASAP; it's unlikely to be tonight now. Alternatives in preference order: Next Monday/Next Sat/Next Tuesday (difficult, because of other games).
Aug 12, 2014 11:51 AM - Eugenio: I'm gonna be the one to throw a monkey wrench in that suggestion. I'm out of town from this coming Sunday til the following Monday night (August 17-25). If you guys decide it'd be better to be down 1 rather than two and wanna move the finale to next week, that's totally fine, no problem. And Dan, if you did end up moving the start date of the other campaign by a week, that would mean I wouldn't miss out on the first session.
Aug 12, 2014 11:51 AM - Rob R: My preference would be to push it back to Monday. I don't believe Tuesday is an option because someone was already not available next Tuesday (and therefore, possibly, might not be available on Monday either - I think they mentioned vacation.
Aug 12, 2014 11:37 AM - Capt_Dan: I ask, because we may be down two, at least for a portion; I'd rather have a full party for the finale.
Aug 12, 2014 11:36 AM - Capt_Dan: Okay, quick poll; can anyone do next Monday? This will be the final session, I think so I don't want to miss anyone, and I'd like to avoid impacting any other games. Does Monday work? Otherwise, I can push this one week, and move the other games.
Aug 12, 2014 11:32 AM - James L: Sorry guys, there's a high chance I won't make it tonight.
Aug 12, 2014 10:28 AM - RayMONDsunglasses: Got my dice and 5E PDF. Worried I might be late at work on the boarder if the city with lo.gcomute to game. Will update later. Look forward to tonight.
Aug 12, 2014 9:36 AM - Rob R: See everyone tonight.
Aug 7, 2014 3:21 PM - James L: Rob, I found this list which details a bunch of those new (one-shot) Expedition adventures and their release dates. http://merricb.com/2014/08/03/the-great-list-of-dungeons-dragons-5e-adventures/
Aug 5, 2014 1:45 PM - Rob R: Looking foward to this evening .
Aug 5, 2014 1:53 AM - Capt_Dan: Yes, that's how I interpret it; as ling as you keep the official .adventurer's League log record of your character, play in The Starter Set, or either adventure counts, and you can play that character in Adventurer's League play.
Aug 5, 2014 12:07 AM - James L: so I have been skimming the Adventurer's League document. It seems like any home game of the Starter Set and the first 2 written adventures they release, allow players to have a valid for public play character, keeping all their loot and XP. is that right?
Aug 4, 2014 11:34 AM - Capt_Dan: for info - Bards! http://www.d20monkey.com/2014/07/28/the-bard/
Jul 29, 2014 4:03 PM - Capt_Dan: Hey Raymond - no problem, it happens. Yes - we are NOT playing tonight; I'll see you all next week.
Jul 29, 2014 1:47 PM - RayMONDsunglasses: So sorry I fell out of communication. Got caught up in extra work and sleep deprivation. If my spot is still svailible, u would love to continue. We are off tonight July 29 though right?
Jul 24, 2014 12:10 PM - Capt_Dan: Hey all, a few things - First, Raymond - are you still in man? Let us know. Second, James is away next week, so unless anyone objects, I'll pause it for a week. I'd say we're about half way, so there's still three more sessions to go. That would take us right up to Tue 19th Aug (the official release of the new PHB...) is that good with everyone?
Jul 18, 2014 12:25 PM - Capt_Dan: I wrote up my review, finally - please check it out and let me know what you think. (it runs long...)
Jul 18, 2014 12:25 PM - Capt_Dan: http://thisisinfamous.com/dd-great-start/
Jul 17, 2014 12:58 PM - Capt_Dan: Okay, I've scheduled sessions through to August - any conflicts, please let me know as soon as you can and we can work around. I'm really enjoying this so far, I hope you guys are too - and don't forget to vote over on the right of this page!
Jul 15, 2014 11:28 PM - Eugenio: Sorry I had to bail so fast. Day trip for work to DC tomorrow and my train leaves at 6am. But I had a great time again tonigh, so thanks everyone! And sorry the elf's hunger for knowledge got the better of him with the banshee. Couldn't help himself. ;-) See y'all next week.
Jul 15, 2014 9:11 AM - Capt_Dan: Just a quick reminder we're playing again tonight, same time place - about 7:30, because I don't think Rob can do much earlier, so don't rush.
Jul 10, 2014 12:11 AM - Rob R: It's also an action now instead of a minor. It's only useful for when the check needs to be made. It's autosuceed vs a DC 10 check. That being said, can't really take it when you only have three cantrips at 1st level.
Jul 9, 2014 4:12 PM - Capt_Dan: That's interesting. I'm really feeling the balance in the game after the Playtest. A lot of the PT stuff was quite overpowered, and this all feels more even - the combats all went the way they were supposed to, and I was breifly concerned by the .hobgoblin, but it was great to see the Mage step up and really blast him at the end. I really do think it plays beautifully, the more I consider it.
Jul 9, 2014 3:59 PM - James L: Holy crapola. I just read the "Spare The Dying" spell. You touch a creature at 0 HP, that creature becomes stable. No more 1 HP. We weren't missing anything by the cleric not having it.
Jul 9, 2014 11:06 AM - James L: There will be statues made in our honor in the middle of town, by the time we are finished.
Jul 9, 2014 8:54 AM - AVacc: How did it go? :)
Jul 8, 2014 5:12 PM - James L: Looking forward to this, I'll see you guys there.
Jul 8, 2014 3:53 PM - Capt_Dan: Okay, this looks great guys. I'm going to try and get there about 6:30, if anyone wants to get in early and look over the materials, otherwise we'll start when everyone's in, or by 7:30, if anyone's running late. If you don't know me, I'll be in the D&D tshirt...
Jul 7, 2014 8:44 PM - RayMONDsunglasses: I would prefer either the dwarf cleric or the human melee fighter.
Jul 7, 2014 6:03 PM - Capt_Dan: I saw a good point earlier re pre-gens - any preferences? There are: Dwarf Cleric, Elf Mage, Halfling Rogue, and two human fighters, a paladin-y knight type, and a ranged Ranger-y type. If you have a preference, put it up in the character box above. If there's a conflict, worst case, I don't mind having the same character twice.
Jul 7, 2014 1:04 PM - AVacc: I would love to play but we are moving this weekend. You kids have fun....
Jul 7, 2014 12:57 PM - Capt_Dan: I see a lot of beginners here - that's great. If you're absolute beginers, perfect - I'll have everything you'll need anyway. Otherwise, you only need dice for this, or I can supply them anyway.
Jul 7, 2014 12:42 PM - Rob R: The list on the right labeled "Committed Adventurers - Limit 5" is the official list of players. If your name is there (as it is at the time of this post) your in.
Jul 7, 2014 11:26 AM - Leon Trotsky: Hey guys, new to the site so I'm not sure how this works exactly. Is there still room for one more?
Jul 7, 2014 9:35 AM - Capt_Dan: It won't go past eleven, probably finish around 10:30ish, so shouldn't be a problem.
Jul 7, 2014 6:02 AM - Mat T: I oldies: don't forget to hit "commit"; until then you're not considered to be signed up.
Jul 6, 2014 9:50 PM - Eugenio: I hate to be a stick in the mud, but I have to drive to DC at 5:30 the following morning. I really wanna be a part of this campaign, and I'll for sure be there to play, but I really should bail by like 11, definitely no later than 12. I'm not sure how long you were thinking it'd run, but...yeah.

Yay can't wait to play!
Jul 6, 2014 9:22 PM - Capt_Dan: Okay, this is good - I'm happy to play with as few as three. We'll use the pre-gens and run the game straight out of the box, I want to see how it all plays. You won't even need dice, unless you're attached to your own!
Jul 5, 2014 7:06 PM - Capt_Dan: Here's your chance to play the first official product for the newest version of D&D!!
