Thread: [D&D 5E] Replacements for Tales from the Yawning Portal

  1. Default [D&D 5E] Replacements for Tales from the Yawning Portal



    Fellow roleplayers of TTW,

    I come before you today to ask for aid.

    A group of brave and young adventurers that was about to begin a trek into one of the fabled lost Dwarven strongholds is now facing a conundrum as a member of their four-person adventuring band has suddenly lost a member to the God of Procrastination and silly things. Said God appeared right before they were about to launch a surprise attack on a pair of orcs guarding the entrance to the stronghold and "borrowed" their beloved party member for an unknown amount of time. In such a time of need, only the God of reinforcements can help them, but only if He is able to find the correct individuals to volunteer.

    Will you answer the call?

    Silly attempt at roleplay humor aside, this post is meant to be asking for 2 players to make Level 3 characters and join a group of my Tales from the Yawning Portal game. It is a campaign based on the official sourcebook released under the same title and compiles episodic dungeon-crawl based adventures set in the Forgotten Realms. The group has already completed Chapter 1 (Sunless Citadel) and has just begun Chapter 2 (The Forge of Fury). It is a good point to join the adventure.

    Interested players may create characters using the following rules:

    Ability scores: 2 sets with re-rolling 1s OR point buy OR standard array. You may roll 2 sets and default to the other options as a lower bound.
    Equipment: (Background + class starting equipment OR max class gold) AND 150 gold pieces worth of shopping budget (from your exploits in an unnamed dungeon elsewhere).
    HP: roll HP or take the average. You may re-roll a 1 on the HP die once if you choose to roll.
    Sourcebooks: All official material only. All races except the ones that have a base flying speed.
    Starting Level: 3
    Starting Feat: You can reduce one ability score by 2 or two ability scores by 1 each and take a feat. This feat is in addition to the feat granted by picking variant human as the race.

    I would like to have a completed myth-weavers sheet and link to it before applying. Backstory is optional but it is good to have a little bit of it just for personalization and "character". I do want every character to have traits, ideals, bonds, and flaws listed. You may express interest with a quick post first before any questions/final submission so that I have an idea of how many people are creating characters for this listing.

    The current party:

    Jonathan Strange, protector Aasimaar Sorcerer, played by Severalis
    Ander Thorngage, lightfoot halfling bard, played by Ander
    Berrik "Beastbane" Thorngage, ghostwise halfling moon druid, also played by Severalis

    As for posting rate, full disclosure: I have had some trouble recently with maintaining anything respectable, myself. However, I have started rectifying that already, and I wouldn't be recruiting replacements if I was not ready to keep up with the commitment. So, I will expect a post every 24 hours (excluding weekends), and I will try to NPC your character and keep the game moving (especially during combat) if that doesn't happen. Too many instances of this would be undesirable and we'll see how to resolve that situation if it arises.

    Hey! I'm interested in joining. Thinking about running a Tortle Barbarian if thats alright.
    Question on the levels and rolling. You state your looking for 2 level 2 character but state starting level is 3. Is rolling 6 rolls of 3d6r1 in two sets?

    It is level 3, sorry. Thanks for pointing out the error, I have fixed it to reflect level 3.

    Where is the Tortle race from?

    Tortles are Tomb of Annihilation supplement and considered part of Xanathars guide to everything for Adventure League purposes.

    Forgot how to make rolls visible, not sure on what I will submit yet but my next post will either be a finished application or a list of questions based on what I'm making.

    That was weird. Let me try again. If this doesn't work, I'll slink into a corner in embarrassment.

    *edit* That's doubly embarrassing. I copied the string in your post, but not the one you actually rolled. I'll go through later and manually drop the lowest one if I'm not dead from embarrassment before then.
    *edit 2* Yeah, I'm just going to let this go. It didn't reroll the ones like it should have and I don't want to have to keep cluttering up the thread with rolls. I'm going to go hang my head in shame in the corner. Good gaming, you guys.
