Request to Join and Character Creation
Thank you for your interest in our campaign.  We are not accepting new RTJs at this time.


Hi everyone.  This game will use the stock D&D 5e rules and will have the Mature tag.

I'll start by running the "Lost Mine of Phandelver" module from the Forgotten Realms but I'm open to broadening this into a longer-running campaign if everyone is having fun and remains committed.  If anyone has already read/played that module, please let me know and I'll select an alternative resource.  If you haven't read/played it, please don't look at it while participating in this game to avoid spoilers.

The characters will all start at First Level using the standard options from the PHB.  I'll consider character options/spells/equipment from other sources so let me know if there's something in particular that you would like to incorporate.

My intent is to update the game at least three times per week on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings.  Please confirm in your RTJ that you're also prepared to commit to posting at that rate.  I'm in Texas (central time) and I will usually post after 8:00 pm on those days.  As a general rule, please submit at least one story-advancing post between each of those updates.

That said, I understand that life happens and I'll work with you but please let me know if you're going to miss an update so I can move the game forward.

For the RTJ, please submit the following:

- Character Name
- Gender
- Race
- Class
- Brief background/personality traits
- A 2-3 paragraph in-character writing sample

I'll review the submissions and will let everyone know who I can accept into the game.  I'm looking for 4-6 dedicated players.


I plan to use DND Beyond for character creation.  I already have the site prepared and I'll share the link with you when I add you to the game.  Of course, all of the gameplay will take place here at RPOL.

I think that's about it for now.  I look forward to seeing your RTJs and I can't wait to get started!
