So unless I have misunderstood, I believe the current feeling is thus:

Matt: Currently Undecided
Lee: Cleric Something?
Ed: Gnome Rogue
Barry: Half Orc Samurai
Ben: Unknown
Me: Human Sorceror

Diaries of the Sword Coast, Volume 1

Pitch - 
Neverwinter is a great city, The Jewel of the North, the "most civilised city in all of Faerûn", and people are known to come from far and wide to find work, hone their craft, or to find their fortune; but you are not in Neverwinter any longer. You are two days south and setting up camp on the junction of the High Road and Triboar Trail, not that you are heading all the way to Triboar. With luck your destination, Phandalin, is only another two days ahead, the trail will be tougher and slower going, and it's not patrolled as the High Road is but that is the very reason for you being where you are.

You yourself, or more specifically yourself and the company you now keep, was hired out of Neverwinter by a dwarven merchant named Gundren to escort his caravan to Phandalin and ensure its safe arrival, a precaution thought necessary in these troubling times. Caravan Guard is probably a more humble activity than you envisioned yourself doing, but it is honest/paid (delete as appropriate) work and with the city bursting with refugees you may just be glad to have left the city. You might also be looking forward to your pay, have business of your own in Phandalin, or be itching to kill something but whatever your reasons for joining this venture one thing is for sure, as you make camp those sausages smell good.

System/Style –
This game will be run using 5e D&D and be set in the region of Faerûn called the Sword Coast North. The player characters will be members of a group of some sort; be it a fellowship, a mercenary company, or loosely allied individuals with a shared purpose. Players will be expected to work with the GM or each other to create or develop motivations for their character to stick with the group or on the current path of the campaign. Players may also order off the menu if they so wish, just because something doesn't exist in the current rules set for 5e D&D doesn't mean it can't exist but all UA or Homebrew content the GM has final say.

Players should expect combat to be done both on a grid with tokens/minis and using theatre of the mind depending on the encounter itself, players will be encouraged to describe their character's actions in combat but should also expect all combats to potentially be lethal because in a world where magical healing exists down does not equal out.

Regarding magic: although not prevalent magic is common, or common enough for almost everybody to know somebody who know's some minor magical trick. Powerful magic and magical items less so, you can expect the village priest to be able to heal the sick but don't ask them to cure that case of lycanthropy you contracted last month.

Metagame stuff the GM is happy for players to know -
The campaign will primarily take place in hill/plains and forest type terrain, you can expect to mostly be fighting goblins and orcs. Expect there to be travel, including random encounters, and for a fair proportion of the campaign to happen outside of any settlements although it will be centred around one small town.

Hello all

Happy new year.  One of my resolutions this year was to get back into gaming.  I've collcted and gamed 40k on and off for the last 20 years, but haven't played in the last two years due to work and becoming a dad.  I'm keen to get back into gaming and am looking for a willing volunteer to show me the ropes again (having never played 8th edition).

I am an Imperial player through and through, with a large IG army, three flavours of SM and some Knights.  i always run with a 'fluffy' army - I enjoy the narrative side of the hobby and don't aim for competitive lists - I take what I like the look of, not what's most likely to win (getting my excuses in for the forthcoming defeats early...)

I look forward to hearing from you.

Ed

Hello everyone I was wondering if in the near future you'd have me come along to a couple of sessions and see if there's any games I can join? I found it impossible to get my family to enjoy a simple board game this Christmas hols and I think I'm going to have to look outside of my blood relatives for entertainment. 

I used to play DnD and Magic way back in the day and would love to join a DnD session if no one would mind a little handholding. Otherwise I love simple but fun games like Munchkin and the like. Not sure I can face going through my disorganised card collection to make a magic deck tbh though. 

I'm a Mom in my thirties so when I last was with a regular gaming group it was all on stone tablets and they hadn't invented colour yet.

Hi,

I have recently been introduced to DnD (5e) through one of my friends (Autumn Thriller on here) and have been playing through his homebrewed campaign, which is going really well (well apart from one of our party dying the last session Tongue).

I found out about this group through Autumn Thriller and am looking to come to a session one Tuesday.

Matt

Heya!

I've been a fareham-dweller for pretty much my entire life but have just recently been made aware of your online abode by Mr Ben W (May have totally referred the wrong Ben in sign up...oops).

I'll probably swing along (and maybe bring a friend or two at later dates) to the Tuesday sessions - I'm pretty much a keen D&D player (5e), new to everything else but curious. I have also done a small share of DMing a homebrew campaign which has gone well Big Grin and I'm now running the same campaign for work colleagues ^^.

Hello there all,

Wanted to say a big 'hello'! I'm Craig, I moved to Fareham from Portsmouth, where I was (and still occasionally am) a frequenter of the Solent Wargamers Club.  I play a bit of everything- my main skirmish games are Malifaux and Bushido with a bit of Warmachine, and I'll play basically any board game or RPG (although I've pretty much only played DnD so far).

Looking forward to coming along one of these Sundays Smile

Best,
Craig

Hi all,

I am new to a few hobbies and saw your facebook group, so thought i'd stop in and say hi!

Currently am playing warhammer 40k, with an interest in starting Shadespire and a potential interest in Necromunda and AoS. 


After playing magic on console, I have also begun starting a collection of magic cards, but have not played yet and am interested in potentially exploring that.

Finally, i'm fairly open to new things, i've recently come back to the south coast, so am looking to meet some new people and play/try some new games

Cheers,

Dan
