    I recently started watching your webcasts on Lost Mine of Phandelver.  With your guys review of how it played I actually got D and D 5th edition.  I haven’t owned a D and D edition since 2nd.  I think the last RPG I have ever bought was Champions 3rd edition.  Needless to say I even enjoyed your adventure enough to sign up here.  😀

     

    I am hoping to start a Campaign here shortly in my area.  I am a very good at improvising.  Needless to say I am hoping to be on here more.  I am just starting session 4 on you tube.  Thanks to your playing I was able to get a lot of questions answered so KUDOS to you.  Keep up the good work and keep playing.  =)

    Welcome to the site! 🙂 Hopefully, you’ll stick around and comment – @[member=”Hal”] would probably love it if you posted in some of the forum threads for the Phandelver episodes, there’s a bit of discussion going on there. Also, since you’ve already answered most of the questions from the #RPGaDay thread, you might as well answer the rest, while you’re at it, even though the event is technically over. 😉 Oh, and once you get your campaign up and running, drop by and let us know how it’s going; there’s a forum section for personal projects where you could start a topic about it. Hal would no doubt love to compare notes. 🙂

    Hey there 🙂

     

    Nice to have you aboard and glad the recordings are helping to get back to DnD 🙂

     

    I am finding 5 to be much more of a return to the early days but it seems to be playable using a number of different approaches which seems to allow you to find the ideal balance for your group. We tried without the battlemat and it did not seem to work for the play style of the players so we switched back. That being said there are a couple of encounters coming up that purposefully don’t have maps to encourage narrative combat 🙂

     

    Thanks for the feedback – it is always great to get new site members 🙂 There are a lot of other recordings over in the Downloads section (mostly audio) that might also serve as inspiration 🙂

    I noticed how much maps help out.  I am actually gonna use my Decent pieces for maps.

     

    The Campaign

    I have a plan everyone wakes up on a pirate ship. WELCOME your all been shanghide and now will be Pirates.  There are 6 people in the room (only 5 people playing). Has everyone come out and stand on one side of the ship. with 25 some pirates (no weapons they are locked away right now). Main pirate comes down. You have 2 choices join us or get off my ship. First guy that is a NPC says He will never be a pirate. Captain takes out a Crossbow and kills him one shot and he goes over the side. Of course everyone after this joins. :laugh:

    Check out the OOTAK gamers’ Skull & Shackles play-through, they’ve got plenty of experience with that kind of scenario. 😉

    Lets not forget the amazing and superb Pirates of the Spanish Main by Whartson Hall. 

     

    Still has my favourite intro of any on the site. 🙂

    Pirates of the Spanish Main used the Savage Worlds system, and boasted one of the best intros ever 🙂  Well worth a listen. 

     

    There are other great pirate games on the site too, BAG People and Out of the BAG also ran Sundered Skies, a Savage Worlds game too.

    We use Descent, Descent 2nd Ed and HeroQuest pieces in our IRL games.  They come in extremely useful.
