Tyranny of Dragons

  Tyranny of Dragons is set in the Forgotten Realms on Faerun's western shore--the Sword Coast. A thin strip of civilization stretches down this coast, where widely spaced cities are arranged like beads on a string. A combination of roads and wagon tracks loosely connect the cities that stretch from Luskan in the north to Calimport in the south, passing through Neverwinter, Waterdeep, Baldur's Gate, and other great ports along the way. The bulk of this adventure takes place on the stretch between Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter.

What am I signing up for?
  The goal is to run a group of heroes through the entirety of the Tyranny of Dragons Campaign broken down into two published parts: Horde of the Dragon Queen & Rise of Tiamat. This campaign is set using the Dungeons & Dragons 5e Rule Set, and we will be using D&D Beyond as a pseudo-campaign management tool.

  As such, even when you know it's your turn next in an initiative for combat, we would appreciate an opportunity to post a short narrative summary of the previous turn, followed by an OOC directive over who is next. It seems tedious, but we'll be monitoring the game pretty good, and we promise our summaries will happen pretty quickly when the party is mired in combat.

Adult Rated?
  We are not going to flag the game as adult rated. There will be some mature themed moments and potentially mature themed descriptors of combat violence, but there will be no x-rated interactions between characters as part of the campaign.

How will we begin?
  This is a Wizards of the Coast published campaign and as such I have a few sections of "box text" or unchangeable sections. For the most part, however, it's fairly open-ended and allows for a great deal of original machinations. I will create a small introductory scenario for each character that will be no more than three to five (3-5) posts long that will set you off on a journey of discovery. The opening party scenario to the actual campaign will bring your party together on the outskirts of the town of Greenest.

  1. We ask for a posting rate of at least every other day while out of combat, and at least once a day during combat. If you have not acted within 24 hours of your turn during combat your turn will be skipped. Of course, we realize that life can sometimes interfere and nobody will be booted right away. However, if we do not hear from you (post-wise) in a week, you will be contacted with a 24-hour notice. If we get no response from that notice, you will be removed from the game and your character replaced in the campaign.
  2. If you get stuck and don't know what to do with your character, poke to DM, together we can surly find something for your character to do if the current situation you find them in feels like a dead end.
  3. Disagreements between characters are bound to happen, but let's leave it between characters, and not allow it to spill out into the OOC Forum. We're here to play a game, and enjoy a lengthy, fun campaign.

  I work a M-F 8:00am-5:00pm CST (GMT -6:00) schedule in front of a computer. I have constant access to RPoL once I get the game prepared and launched. I am looking for 4-6 players with similar access so that the game can move along smoothly. I plan to run the entirety of Tyranny of Dragons, which could take a couple of years or more in a play-by-post forum. I plan to keep the game active, and hope for active players as well.

  I have recently acquired a legendary bundle on D&D Beyond, and have decided to put it to some use with this campaign. I have created a campaign on my account and put a link to the campaign in a post in the game. Once you've been accepted to the game, you can use the link to join the campaign (creating a D&D Beyond account if you don't have one, don't worry a basic account is free!) and you will have access to all of the source material I have licensed.
