  • Dragonlance War of the Lance

    Autumn settles on the plains of Abanasinia as rumors of war and strange creatures travel from the northern lands. Friends meet in the tree-town of Solace after many years spent apart, hoping to reminisce about old times and adventures past. But the people of Ansalon need heroes, as the ancient gods have returned to the world, and brought creatures of myth and legend to fight in their battles. Dragons- ancient, deadly, and powerful- have returned to Krynn. An adventure like no other calls the heroes to rediscover the greatest gift given to the mortal races, to find a safe haven for hundreds of desperate refugees, and unearth the first secrets that might lead to the power of the Dragonlance.

  • DDN Playtest PbP in Eberron

    [b]System:[/b] Dungeons & Dragons: Next (current playtest packet, updated as they are released)

    [b]Setting:[/b] Eberron

    [b]Format:[/b] Play-by-Post



    [FONT="Century Gothic"][SIZE="5"]Gang War Looms, Sharn Watch dispatches Crack Team to Dark Undercity![/SIZE][/FONT]



    Intrepid members of the Sharn Watch head into the dark territory of No Man's Land in search of a dangerous murderer, the infamous "Raven". Gangs in Sharn's undercity and the towers above gird for an all-out crime war, and only the capture of this nefarious criminal can forestall the bloodshed. As they race to bring a cold-blooded killer to justice, secrets and perils unknown await. Survival, much less success, is not guaranteed.



    Will they succeed in time, or is will this be the premature end to their careers in the greatest city on Eberron?

  • Mad King's Monkey

    There is a cold wind blowing through the Reaches of Man.



    For as long as history records, there have been gates - from the huge Arches through which whole wagon trains can pass, to little doors more suitable for a child than a grown adult. Between all of these gates is the Netherworld, sometimes dry and dusty, sometimes green and fertile, sometimes cold and snow-covered. But always with the same flat iron-grey sky and generally safe so long as you follow the rules; stay on the path, do not sleep while in the Netherworld and take nothing from the Netherworld through a gate.



    The paths of the Netherworld are as many and varied as the gates they traverse between. The most famous are the Great Roads that connect the Arches. They are arrow straight and topped with smooth paving stones. One hundred paces to each side the land is flat and featureless, adorned only with grass and wild flowers. The other paths range from tracks wide enough for wagons to those that seem little more than animal tracks. Most are of handpicked earth sometimes supplemented by hewn timber or crushed stone where the ground is boggy. Occasionally there are small bridges or raised walkways of timber or stones. But most are just hard-beaten earth. But whatever the appearance of the paths, they have been uniformly easy enough to traverse with good footing and clear of obstructing vegitation.



    Or so they once were. Now a days it is not uncommon to find weeds growing through the paving stones of the Great Roads, which no longer seem as straight and smooth as they used to be, and thorny bushes and corpses of small stunted trees and thick underground seem to crowd the roads in places. The smaller paths seem to be narrower, rockier and more treacherous underfoot, and a wise traveller takes a stout staff for there are places now where branches hang low over the paths and thorny bushes clutch and tear at the fabric of ones clothes. And while the Netherworld seems as empty and uninhabited as always, travellers commonly talk about the sense of being watched and of darker shadows lurking in the shadows which hover at the edge of ones vision. Many old timers will tell you that it is colder now in the Netherworld, and will point out the dark clouds that can now sometimes be seen rolling slowly across a sky that was once just a featureless expanse of unchanging grey.



    There is a cold wind blowing through the reaches of man and it seems to be coming from the Netherworld.



    Many dismiss such stories and reports of growing darkness and danger in the Netherworld as superstitious nonsense. They point to thousands of people who daily, and safely, traverse the paths between the portals. They point to the countless stories and fables of of dark happenings and terrible fates set in the Netherworld as evidence that nothing has changed, or if it has, it is not the first time it has, and will not be the last. Of course the Netherworld is dangerous, but not if you follow the rules: stay on the path, do not sleep while in the Netherworld and take nothing from it.

  • The Keys of Solomon

    <i>They are coming.



    The First Prophet looked up at the stars, his eyes white and unseeing, yet his gaze extending far beyond time and space. From across a thousand light years and a hundred centuries, he could sense the gathering forces racing towards Solomon, ready to dive upon its surface and claim its treasure as their own. Millennia ago, Solomon had been entrusted with the Keys- seven links in the chain of reality, each with dominion over one of the basic forces of the Universe. Discovered by the ancient Eldar, scattered amongst the people of Solomon, hidden and protected against discovery at all costs, the Keys combined could make the wielder a god, able to reshape reality as he or she saw fit. For thousands of years, the people of Solomon had kept them secret and safe. Now the secret was out, and the race was on.



    Time. Space. Creation. Destruction. Matter. Energy. Spirit.



    The armies of the galaxy were gathering. The war for Solomon could result in the birth of a golden age- or the destruction of everyone and everything in the universe. Only time would tell.



    The First Prophet lowered his eyes. The End of All was near. After uncounted centuries, now it would fall to this generation to determine the fate of reality itself. He sighed wearily as the first pulses of ships translating from the Warp bloomed high over the planet's surface. Almost simultaneously, he felt the webway burst forth on Solomon's surface, disgorging the Eldar who would be the world's saviors or destroyers. It was all as he had feared.



    They are coming.</i>

  • The Untamed Wilds

    Shakespeare said, "All the world is a stage, the men and women merely players."

    Homebrew Setting:
    This is a magic infusion, early technology, fantasy world. The particular technological age is deliberately set at the late Iron Age moving into the Golden Age of Discovery so that the non-combat related actions of the characters have a direct effect on political, social, and technological development.

    - Races / Character Description -
    All characters should be humanoid, meaning 2 arms and 2 legs. No tails, wings, feathers, or scales at inception, of a relative height from 4' to 8', with general earth tone coloration or chromatic hue from black to white. Star Wars has its own diversity. This world is still simpler.

    - Classes / Levels -
    In a beginning adventure to a beginning campaign. The term beginner is important. Classes are only relevant to the players own vocabulary and archetypal design not to the playable mechanics of this system. Diversity is pliable to all, free of penalty. Beginning age of characters should be late adolescent to early adult for relative plausibility.

    - Equipment / Money -
    As per the introduction, the technological age is late iron. This is important to starting gear. Suits of armor have never even been heard of, much less seen. Metal weaponry does, of course, exist but it is general and simple. Rapiers and katanas and such are yet to be designed, waiting on character input and alloy component discovery. Some indigenous peoples are still using weaponry made of stone or bone.

    All characters may begin with a simple melee weapon no larger than a longsword or single-blade fighting axe and/or a simple bow (long or short) with 20 arrows. If choosing knives, small swords, or hand axes, a character may begin with 2. Clothing should be homespun, wool, or cotton, no armor yet. Shields or bucklers are small and will be made of wood or hide.

    The base currency is a medium sized coin made of tin that has various names from the 4 cities where it is minted but the same value. All characters are considered to have acquired 20 coins at the start of play. This is more than adequate. You will see.

    System:
    This may come across as strange, but the system of origin for your character is irrelevant. I can use whatever stats you already have to relate them to what is important to keep track of development through play. Everyone has a favorite archetype or character. The question is can you take it and develop it through your own ability to play it, outside the rigid parameters of a gaming system? Where would you take it if the next step were entirely up to you?

    Technical Mechanics are based on percentile and advancement is a point-buy system.

    The world is called The Untamed Wilds

  • Arcanum of the Stars

    Arcanum of the Stars is both the name of my Dragonstar campaign and one of the main forces behind that campaign. However, Arcanum of the Stars (AotS), the campaign, isn't going to be just about that one power group. Many other resources whether D&D, D20, or something else entirely has influenced how Arcanum of the Stars has developed and will continue to be developed. And not only is Arcanum of the Stars a campaign, it is also designed to be a Dragonstar resource for other players and GMs to add new material to their own Dragonstar campaigns.

  • The Volunteer Zombie Eradication Force

    Towering directly over your head is an ragged and imposing drill sergeant in his fifties. His tidily worn fatigues mock his appearance and presence: his leathery, scarred face wrinkles a hundred times over and he spits as he talks. Looking directly into your eye, into your soul, he yells,
    "This is where all V.Z.E.F. recruits come to learn how to survive the madness of the apocalyptic world.
    Report here to gear up and to find out how, when and where you will be stationed!
    Check back to take on new missions (if available) and to meet other recruits.
    If this is where it all ends, then this is where it all begins. Soooooound GOOD?!"

    Ok, but seriously...

    This is just a place to get started before you even know what's going on.
    Some won't know what D&D is let alone table top role playing games, let alone what this site is for.
    Some of you won't have a character yet, some will. Either way, if you're new you're in the right place.

    For anyone interested in the Volunteer Zombie Eradication Force, 3.5 D&D, undead apocalypse campaign (aka VZEF Camp), this Community is for:

    - making friends
    - any kind of general conversation (out of character)
    - learning about what Dungeons & Dragons is and how to play
    - deciding what type of game and character you want to play
    - choosing a group you wish to play with (unless you are playing solo)

    Finally, and I really shouldn't have to mention this, but...

    Please be respectful, even if you can't be kind.
    No racism, no sexism, basically... if it end in ism and you're unsure, don't post it.
    No erotic fantasy talk (in character or out of character) unless you're in a forum/thread that states you can.
    Keep the profanity to a minimum. If you're going to use it, use it right.
    No nudity!
