    Default Reign of Winter 5e

    Acquaintances, TangledWeb.
    I own exactly one Pathfinder book, the Snows of Summer from the Reign of Winter module from a couple years ago. I started it with some friends in college, but we didn’t make it very far. Now that I've got some IRL experience DMing, I'd like to transition this module into 5e, which I'm most familiar with. Also, I'm assuming most 5e players aren't familiar with the story. If you are, well, maybe this game isn't for you.

    Assuming we make it through the first book (should take a few months), I would purchase the next in the series and continue from there. It's a pretty straightforward adventure, lots of checkpoints, combat, survival, and team-building. Characters all begin the adventure in the village of Heldren, in the realm of Taldor. Heldren is a very small and secluded town, mostly housing farmers, herders and woodcutters. It is located several miles north of the Border Wood, and in close proximity to the Deed River, so most humans, halflings, or mixes of other races, spend most of their lives here. When a nearby merchant or traveler stops by, the entire town gathers to hear tales. You, as adventurers, are the “city militia” of sorts. You volunteered at some point to train, and guard the city against any harm that might come to it, although it’s been safe in Heldren for a century or more. You are all familiar with each other, and you’re who’s called upon when the adventure starts.

    I'm looking for a 6-person party. Unfortunately, I don't think I can handle more than 1 game right now, so I'll pick 6 from the recruits I do happen to get. Some more information about the recruits:

    Character Information:

    Starting Level - 1
    Stats - 4d6 and take the best 3. Code is [rollv*]4d6b3*[/rollv*] (no asterisks). Do this 6 times and assign them, then add racial bonuses.
    PC Races & Classes - Anything from a WotC 5e book. UA's revised and spelless ranger are fine too.
    Starting Equipment/Gold - Class and Background Starting Equipment

    Submit to me a Level 1 Mythweavers application before I accept you. Include a few paragraphs of background, and feel free to PM other players if you want to build a relationship pre-story. In a small town like Heldren, you're all likely to know each other. If you’re a warlock, tell me about how you got your powers. If you’re a goblin, explain how you’ve been accepted in the town. Etc.
    I’ve never made the transition from Pathfinder to 5e before, so you’ll have to bear with me as some of the creatures and items won’t come from the books, but rather a mix of the two. Otherwise, I think that should be sufficient to get started. Ask me any questions to help you build your PC's. Should be fun!

    Hey man! I'll surely apply soon, as I don't know anything about ready campaigns this should be interesting!

    Okay, I see a High Elf Sorcerer. Sheet will be up in a day or two.

    Are you still going to be using the Pathfinder world and deities?

    Yes. Unless an occurence comes up that I can insert a detail from a character's backstory, because I always enjoy when my DM works to develop my story. Otherwise, if it's just for flavor, everything I've read would be appropriate in the 5e world.

    I'm seeing a Mountain Dwarf Barbarian. I'll have the sheet up tomorrow and hopefully some of us can collaborate on our backstories.

    Looks good. Did you go Draconic Bloodline? Think so from that large AC! If so, you missed the +1 HP for beginning. Don’t worry about your carrying capacity. If it becomes an issue, I’ll address it.
    Can you explain the +5 initiative and stats for the quarterstaff? Fix Con save and identify your spell slots too.
    Good backstory about how she came to be in Heldren!
