Hello Revolution Mafia!

I am interested in possibly starting weekly/biweekly games of Dungeons and Dragons on the IRC. For those of you who don't know, Dungeons and Dragons is a fantasy table top role playing game. I'm starting this thread to see if there is any interest in our community to play. So, if you are interested please vote in the poll above, or post below any questions you have.

If we get enough people interested, I will post with more details and we can see where this goes.

Thank you all, and have a terrific day!

Update 1.0


First, let me just express how excited I am to see so many people interested in playing. Dungeons and Dragons is the great granddaddy of all Role Playing Games. It's a game that incorporates role play, teamwork, storytelling, and good ole fashioned dice rolling. It's a game with limitless possibilities, a game where your greatest weapon is your imagination. I can't wait to get started!

But before we can start slaying dragons, we need to sort a few things out. Below I've put together a Q&A for all of you.

Quote:
How many people will be playing?

Right now I'd like to get between 8-10 players. Anything more than that would be out of hand and impossible for me to DM for.

Quote:
8-10 players sounds like a bit much. How can that many people play at once?

They can't. Typically a good size for a party is four or five players. Anything above that just gets too chaotic and the game becomes less fun. My plan is to divide the players into two parties, which will meet at different times to play. That way more people can play and I won't loose my mind trying to DM 10 people at once.

Quote:
When will we play?


My goal is to organize weekly sessions for us to meet and play. These sessions should last anywhere from two to three hours. One group will meet Saturdays, and another will meet Sundays. A tentative time is 5:00pm Eastern Standard Time. However I am willing to adjust this to fit with players needs. Send me a PM and we can work something out.

Quote:
What version of DnD are we playing?


3.5, with some house rules.

Quote:
House rules? What are those?


Rules that I have added/changed because I felt they got in the way of having a fun time. For example, I have removed the Monk and Paladin class because they are both terrible to role play. I've also replaced the critical system with something that I like better.

Quote:
Where exactly will we be meeting?


We will be meeting in the RMGames channel in the IRC.

Quote:
How will we roll dice there?


There is a special program set up to allow that. We will also be using a site called rolld20 for maps and dice rolls.

Quote:
I know nothing about Dungeons and Dragons. Do I need to go out and buy a rulebook or anything?


Only if you really really want to. I can answer any question you have about the game, and you'll be surprised how quickly you can pick up on the rules once we start playing.

If there is any question you have that I haven't answered here, just send me a Pm. I'm happy to help.

I've also added a new poll asking when would be best for you to play. Please respond to it! This is to help organize everyone into parties. Keep in mind the max of five people per party.

Sounds awesome, Aces! Not sure if I have the time for it, but I am definitely interested in seeing where this goes, what it all entails etc.

Both of my brothers are Dungeon Masters, and one runs a regular game, but I have never played D & D. I get pestered periodically to try it, and maybe trying it in this context rather than with people I have known since I was a kid might be a good way to see if I like it.

So I am a solid "maybe" ~

I like story-telling, but I know next to nothing about D&D. Maybe I'll watch and see how things work before I try it out.

I've only played dnd once, but have been itching for a game ever since. I would flat out have said yes, but not sure when you are planning on running it. Once I can cut my hours at the pizza place and be on a more regular schedule, I'd definitely be down with it.

Would ofc depend on the schedule of it, but yes, probably.

And dibs on naming my character Hector the Well-Endowed (even though he made that one with Troy in mind. #SIXSEASONSANDAMOVIE).

YES YES YES YES! Did I say yes? I love D&D and have been dying to play again (all of my friends that I played with in the past live far away which makes getting a game up a running challenging) so this would be fantastic!

(Has a huge crate filled with tons of D&D books, dice, screens, miniatures, and so on!)

I know nothing about D&D so I'm a little hesitant but i'm very interested to hear more about it and the timing of it.

Here is a quick update for everyone!

I can't express how excited I am to see so many people interested in this. I love role playing games like DnD. They are tons of fun and I look forward to bringing that awesome experience here to RM.

I'm going to be leaving this poll up over the weekend and then on Monday I will be updating my original post with all of the details on how we will work this out. I've still got a few things on my end I need to iron out. Until then if you have any ideas, suggestions, or questions just post them here or send me a PM.

You are all awesome! :)

I am in the middle of modifying a cabinet for my brother to store his minis, and I made him some table screens out of old scrabble boards for Christmas, (he got me various Cthulhu minis for Christmas, lol, even though I don't play so I understand the Mini thing).

And I will tell him re 3.5 Aces, thanks :)

I'll check it out. My experience with D&D would be way different than what could be pulled off on IRC. But I'm very curious as to how this will work, enough so that I may change my answer to "yes".

That sounds really cool! Currently I have my minis stored in an organizer box and they are sorted by various categories like monster-type, humanoids, etc. My real pride and joy is my dice collection. I have an insane amount of dice and they are soooooo pretty! :lol: (I'm such a geek. :politegiggle: )

Also, if we are playing 3.5 rules, I think I have PDFs of of the Player's Handbook if anyone wants to take a look. The files are on my laptop so when I get the chance I'll check and confirm that (I think I also have the Monster Manual PDFs as well).

FH, I had that same crate for years and years. After it sat untouched for about 8 years, I finally got rid of them. I don't remember if I gave them away, or just tossed them.

They were in sad shape then though. Pages falling out, hard covers falling off.

We were only playing AD&D 2 then... I wonder how different the rules are going to be?

How will you roll for stats? Will our characters get stats as fate dictates, or will there be a redistribution of attribute points? I've seen DMs do both.

Each player will roll for their own stats. Roll 4d6, disregarding the lowest roll and adding the other three together. You do that six times and then assign the numbers you want to Strength, Dexterity, Wisdom, Intelligence, Constitution, and Charisma. It is a pretty forgiving system.

Four is plenty. Plus you get to arrange them however you want. It all evens out in the end :D

4 d 6... 6 times, right? Then we assign the values to wahtever stat we want?

I mean, a ranger with a 12 dex is pointless... :p

Do you allow for the warrior class to have the exceptional strength bonuses?
