In an audacious bid for power the Cult of the Dragon, along with its dragon allies and the Red Wizards of Thay, seek to bring Tiamat from her prison in the Nine Hells to Faerun. To this end, they are sweeping from town to town, laying waste to all those who oppose them and gathering a hoard of riches for their dread queen. The threat of annihilation has become so dire that groups as disparate as the Harpers and Zhentarim are banding together in the fight against the cult. Never before has the need for heroes been so desperate. Complimentary portion of the adventure offered to Wizards Play Network stores for D&D Encounters. This an adaptation of the first three episodes of Hoard of the Dragon Queen

Hi! Looking for a little clarity as I am an older dude trying to rediscover fun and adventure. I have created a Discord account, but a little confused. I have created a half-elf Ranger on D&D Beyond. I have been on Roll20. I am open to pretty much anything, but I feel totally lost. I think I can make this time slot work. Sometimes I get home a little late from work, but I guess I could stop at Firefly if I'm coming that way. I rolled stats for character on D&D Beyond, but see this is a point system? But I am looking for a starter group and this looks good.

Jeremy - 6/30/2020 8:32:53 PM
I think I joined the game on Roll20 by accident. Not that I don't want to play. Just want to make sure I am ok to play. I'm SCTarheel on Roll20

Hi Jeremy, if you're interested in playing, then go ahead and join.

So Adventurers League is 5th edition, but there are a few more rules around character creation and advancement in effect in order to create a more balanced game. Point Buy is at the beginning of the Player's Handbook. Basically, the higher you assign a starting stat, the more points it costs from your pool. So a 15 is 9 points where a 10 is only 3 points. You have 27 points total.

I've created a character for you in Roll20 and the character sheet there has something called Charactermancer. It'll walk you through creating your character. It also will handle most leveling options. There is a Chrome plug-in called Beyond20 that will let you use what you've created in D&D Beyond. This includes the character sheet, but I'm not 100% certain how that works because I don't have D&D Beyond. I believe Clifton uses it.

As for the AL rules, see the Forgotten Realms player guide in the AL pack for season 9 (free “purchase” and download): https://www.dmsguild.com/m/product/208178

And don't worry about not being particularly savvy on 5e or Roll20. I can speak from experience that H.S. Rucker and Clifton are good at helping people adjust to both and I try my best as well. So you're in a good group if you want to have an enjoyable few hours a week and you don't need to stress over what you're not fully up-to-speed on. Roll20 has a learning curve, so expect that it'll take a few sessions for you to get comfortable with the interface, even with Beyond20.

One other thing I forgot to mention. The two I mentioned and I are older players as well who have seen multiple editions. Soda City's groups tend to be a great mix of young and old. When we were able to meet in person at Firefly on Wednesday nights, it wasn't unusual to see a mix of people at every table all having fun. That's the environment that folks have worked hard to build and that carries over to our Roll20 games as well.

Thank you so much! I am looking forward to the opportunity. I will go to Roll20 tonight after work.

Jeremy, make sure to join here as well. That’s how folks know how many slots are open for a game.
Jeremy - 7/1/2020 11:44:04 PM
Ok, I think I got my character done. Something timed out and the last bits of information did not seem to make it. Feel free to advise me on what I probably did wrong. I think I did the point calculator correctly for abilities. Little confused on why I couldn't pick a light crossbow for a weapon since I could choose it as a proficiency. Player's Handbook says I can wield one. But can change the proficiency to something else. Also if you need my back story for something specific, I am cool with that. As I haven't played in 30 years, that is the hardest part to figure out.

Characters

You can use the Roll20 link to join the game. If you do this early, I can go ahead and create you a character sheet which you can use charactermancer on. If you already have a level 1 that is AL legal that you want to import, let me know on Roll20 that you’ve imported the character sheet and Iet me know on the game forum. Import is now turned on.

I have been a DM for this adventure as a Homebrew, but have always wanted to run as a player. I'm really looking forward to it!

Character creation

Do you want us to create characters on our own, and if so any limits on character abilities? Point buy, roll stats or standard? Is UA cool? Or are you having a session 0 for character creation?

Toothpick the Ferret - 6/28/2020 11:11:16 PM
Standard Adventurers League rules. So point buy as per PHB. UA is not authorized for Adventurers League.

If you’re not familiar with the rules, see the Forgotten Realms player guide in the AL pack for season 9 (free “purchase” and download): https://www.dmsguild.com/m/product/208178

BittenApple - 6/30/2020 12:11:05 AM
My bad - did not notice the AL tag when I joined. Released my spot as I don't care for AL. Thanks anyway.

Dara has asked that you venture into the Diremire Pit and convince him of this, as there are greater wars to be won!
