    [LFP] Homebrew D&D 5e Game Saturdays

    Currently recruiting for a couple more players for an ongoing 5e campaign. You can post here or PM me with any questions but please know up front that there are "Character/Campaign restrictions" intended to give the game an old school 1E flavor, in particular class and race restrictions. The next session is scheduled on Sat, Jun 6th @ 07:00 PM (CDT)


    ALL of the below is subject to change as the campaign progresses based on player feedback . . .

    (New Player Friendly)

    FG License: GM has FG Classic Ultimate License (meaning anyone can join my games, even those with just the Demo . . .
    Game System: D&D 5E (Homebrew)

    Time Zone: US Central Daylight Time [GMT-5] (Current Local Time)
    Day of week and time: Saturday Time: 7:00-10:00 PM CDT (GMT -5)
    If new game, planned start date: Currently running Campaign
    Planned Duration & Frequency: Every other Week
    Term: Short-Long term campaign (depending on continued player interest)

    Text or Voice: Voice
    Voice software used: Discord (see directly above)
    Will this be recorded and/or live streamed?: No

    Roleplay & Combat mix: 60/40
    Number of Players in game & needed: 2-5
    Character starting level & equipment: 1st Level, Equipment based on Background
    Character/Campaign restrictions: A D&D 5e game trying to capture an old school feel (see below);
    Class: Fighter, Wizard, Cleric or Rogue only (from the PHB)
    Race: Human (no variant), Dwarf or Elf only (from the PHB)
    Attributes: 4d6 and drop the lowest, rolled in front of the GM and placed in any order or you can roll in the discord channel (no Standard Array, Point Buy)
    Background Tweaks: Besides a standard Background (from the PHB), players will also choose from a realistic dark age/medieval 'Viking' based occupation and incorporate that into their background/concept (a list and details will be provided).
    Deity: Choose from 1 of 10 (a list and details will be provided).
    Alignment: D&D Alignment replaced with Morality system (a list and details will be provided).
    Optional/Variants Rules: Healers Kit Dependency (no others will be used such as feats, flanking, etc).
    Backstory: Do NOT create this yet but it’s ok to be working on a generic idea. There will be many regional factors involved including where you are from, whom your parents are, etc., (it can be pretty detailed and involved so you may want to hold back on that until we start character creation).
    Magic: Magic is mostly legal, as long as it doesn't involve demons or affect human souls. Those are the areas governed by the evil gods and are illegal in most areas. Where they are legal they are closely guarded by the evil churches. Conducting such spells will result in the mage being accused of witchcraft. This accusation can also occur if a person claims they are being harmed by magic. Witchcraft is punishable by execution. Cleric spells require faith in a particular deity are considered miracles performed by a god and not magic. Wizard spells require skill and learning, invocations and are considered magic. Wizards and Clerics alike get upset when someone confuses magic and miracles.

    Details of your scenario:
    Details are still being worked out as the campaign continues but for now, you are members of a rebellious Viking (Ivinian) Clan (in other words, to the rest of the Viking world, you are just a bunch of pirates). At some point, you are summoned by and subsequently ‘tasked’ by your lord to visit a settlement far off to the south to investigate problems going on there. The lord of this settlement is a distant cousin of your lord so great favor can be gained, or lost if you screw it up!

    NOTE: No evil characters, min-maxers or disruptive players will be tolerated. We are here to have fun not antagonize each other. Most of us get enough of that in real life already.

    I can't join but vouch for the GM. Been playing with him, he knows the drill.

    Hi there! I'm fairly new to playing on fantasy grounds, but I have experience with dnd 5e, and playing a Viking world type game sounds like a blast! If I were to play in your game I would like to play a dwarven fighter (preferably), but I can be flexible! If you want to ask any questions or want to know anything else about me send me a message on discord! (FnAltF4#7957)

    Make sure you are signed up on the game calendar and I'll PM you the discord channel link.

    And just a reminder, we are using FG Classic, not FG Unity.
