Welcome to our New Campaign page.
Hi! I’m relatively new to the D&D/Tabletop RPG scene. Can you please tell me what you use to create your beautiful maps?
how do i join?
I love the lack of knowledge around the fact that this is from Gabe from Penny Arcade, good luck getting into this much sought after game. Really loving the campaign so far!
i would like to join this game, what are the requirements (play time, etc.)
Awesome. I can’t believe I found this. I love PA and all the podcasts. Great stuff. I’m eager to read over all the adventure logs here.
Hey there guys. I’m new to the website, and have been looking for a D&D game for some time now. I was reading a tiny bit about this campaign and was wondering if you were open to more players. If not, well, shoot. :p. couple things about me & my preferences.
-19 years old
-(attempting to) work full time
-have been told I am wise/mature/intelligent/interesting/clever, etc. (you can never tell if people are coddling you or are serious sometimes. :) )
-D&D 4e (must. I don’t play other systems at the moment)
-online game (am not available to travel far. so unless it’s within 1-2 miles of me, I can’t make it)
-preferably very frequent. once a week. twice a week. or once every other week at least. with long-ish game sessions (4+ hours preferably)
-Always looking to make new friends, and am happy with most any setting! please & thank you for reading! I hope to get to know the community on this site much more!
—You can contact me on my facebook page -> Lincoln Geertsen. or at my email address Lincoln.Geertsen@gmail.com. You COULD contact me on this website via a message or something, but being that I am very new to the website, I am not 100% sure how it works yet, and I won’t be checking messages all that frequently as I am not heavily involved and am focusing elsewhere until I get more involved.
Following you on PA and now here. I like the way you think, friend. Also, being a nearly-two-decade player of D&D, I still remember good times with THAC0 and Bend Bars/Lift Gates. I appreciate your article on OD&D greatly. Thank you for the homage. You “whipper-snappers” really have it easy with your 30 HP and 16 AC. I remember playing a wizard with 4 HP and a single magic missile. Ha! Also, mad props on your sandbox design. I will be shamelessly pilfering from in for many adventures to come. It is RIFE with inspiration. Lastly, I like how you’ve taken the spirit of D&D into its true context. So many are on the “D&D 4E is WoW” train. Thank you for remembering that without D&D-the granddaddy of ALL RPGs-WoW itself would be nothing. So if we take some good ideas from VRPGs, what’s the problem? A good idea is a good idea is a good idea, right? Keep on keepin’ on, brotha. You’re doing great.
Every time I play I try to get my group to create Obsidian accounts. I must say I am jealous of how your players are interacting with your page.
Amazing stuff. I am starting up a campaign tonight, heres hoping it goes as smooth as this one.
It has been a very long time since I have seen any new content here, and I have to say that I can definitely relate. It is so daunting to update a wiki around my game that I have lagged behind significantly. I want desperately to know how things are turning out, especially having seen a few glimpses here and there on the news page on Mike’s site.
Saw your mention of miniature maps on the PA site. I also use the Skeletonkey tiles – Most of them are 6”x6”, which fit very nicely on the 38 cent self adhesive tiles you can buy at Lowes (each is 12”, so each tiles is around 10 cents. They also have forest tiles for when you need them.
Nice touch on the map of Nentir Valley. Feels like the Fog of War from SRPGs.
Just saw the post on PA about how you guys teleconferenced a remote player. In-freaking-genius. I believe you will start trends a-many. In fact, my friend Andy just moved to Florida, away from the rest of the group, and with this idea gaming every week may just be possible again. Why the hell didn’t I think of it? Also, whose idea was it? Whoever it is, patent that shit fast-like, before there are a dozen distance webcam rpg sites out there ripping off your excellent idea.
Also, I am very impressed with your use of the power cards in these screenshots. That is very Wizards of the Coast of you.
Finally, I warn you not to underestimate the cat-factor of dice-rolling. I know people who have sworn they rolled a twenty or triple-sixes on 3d6 just as the curious feline overseer decided to claim the polygons as its prey.
Very cool story thus far! I get a feeling that the collaboration between the players and the DM are making for a world far greater than the sum of its parts, which, of course, is the sign of a truly engrossing role-playing experience.
Thanks, Mike, for the tip on this site, by the way. I am enjoying every second of it. Also, kudos to the players in your campaign for being so clever in their decisions thus far. The more they challenge you with their creativity, the more you’ll find your own abilities improve. From what I can see, you are off to a tremendous start.
