    Default 5e - Dungeon Delver 2018

    Important Announcement: Recruitment for this game has technically ended, but as this initial post mentions, you are welcome to apply to serve as a potential replacement in the event that someone disappears. You can apply on Discord (see my signature for the link) or in The Stables thread on our game's forum here: http://www.thetangledweb.net/forums/...on-Delver-2018

    Dungeon Delver Competition 2018

    Presents for Goblins
    It’s that time of year again! In 2016, several brave souls ventured into the Mines of Madness in separate groups in order to win fame, wealth, and the immortality granted by the Forever Stone! In 2017, a fresh batch of adventurers flew to a castle in the sky to make the Cloud Giant’s Bargain to try to save the city of Neverwinter from attack. While several groups could claim success, only one of them each year did it with such flair and panache that they were able to claim the title of Dungeon Delver Extraordinaire! This year, the competition will be heading to a different dungeon! We’re back to exploring a mine this Yulemas-in-Summertime with the adventure “Presents for Goblins!”

    Game: D&D 5th edition
    Format: Play by post
    Posting requirements: The more, the better. Two days of no posts will result in expulsion from the game. Seriously. This will be explained more below.

    Have you ever wished you could make it to one of the big conventions where hundreds of people are all around you playing the same adventure as you? Me too! Don’t start getting together the components for your Wish spell just yet, though! While play-by-post can never quite capture the same feel of being in the same room with all those people having a blast, it can provide the opportunity for a little friendly, light-hearted competition among a large group of people, and it’s certainly easier than casting the Wish spell.

    From whenever the game begins until August 11, you will have the chance to compete for the officially unofficial title of Dungeon Delver Extraordinaire! (Note that neither this competition nor the award/title is officially endorsed by anybody except me. This is not sanctioned by TTW, D&D, WotC, or any governing body with an abbreviation.)

    Up to 4 teams of 4-5 people will be competing for this prestigious title. Your team will be awarded or penalized points (explained later in this post), and the scores will be posted for all to see (and brag/trash talk about) once per week. At the same time once per week, a random dungeon event will happen, shaking things up!

    On August 11, points will be tallied one final time, and the winning team will be announced. This will occur whether anyone has beaten the dungeon or not, since I will be returning to work as a humble teacher the following week. It is for this reason that you should be able to post quite frequently - you might hold your team up and put them behind in points if you don't! I promise I will attempt to respond to every group as quickly as I can, though I do have to sleep and spend time with my family every now and then. I will be most active between 7AM and 7PM Eastern time. I have a weeklong trip planned at the end of June/beginning of July that will likely reduce my posting ability, but I should still be able to post some during that time.

    “What do I get if my team wins,” you ask? Aside from my applause and verbal (typed) congratulations, the begrudging respect of the losers, and the thrill of victory, I hope to have a cool banner for you to put in your forum signature so that all will know of your epic victory. However, I have no graphic design skills. If you do have these skills and would like to help me make it (i.e. let me tell you my ideas and you make it work and look nice), let me know. In my signature, you can find the lovely banners that several creative and artistic people whipped up for the last two competitions using ideas that I provided. Hopefully this year the prize banner will be at least as awesome as those.

    So here are the adventure hook and all the little details…

    Been waitin' for this.

    I'm ready to take the title a second time.

    No idea what I'll be playing, but I'll come up with something and get back to you.
    See, I'm not a monster, I'm just ahead of the curve.

    Very excited for this! I'll have reliable computer access by then, so I can actually participate. Slowly putting a cleric together. How are we calculating level 2 and 3 hit points? I'm guessing we won't be rolling in the interest of fairness.

    How did I manage to leave that out? I’ll add it into the post later, but to answer your question: take the average roll from your class’s hit die and then add your con mod. Since you’ve got 2 level ups, do that twice.

    Last year, I had a family vacation planned in the middle of this delving period, so I couldn't do it, but this year I think I'm free from the start to the end date. I'll start working on a PC, Rel! Nice to see so many familiar faces here already. Should be a fun way to kick-off summer vacation
