I live in Europe and I am wanting to start or join an online D&D group over the net that plays in times friendly to Europe timezones.
Basically it would be nice to find or start an online gaming group for D&D that plays during GMT friendly hours.
I have had a couple of decades of experience playing D&D through all the versions.
I can be DM or player.Last Activity: Thursday, 13th November, 2014 11:32 AM

[b]Overpopulation is a bad thing everywhere. In a recently (as in only a few 1oo years ago) settled continent where medicine and magic caused the masses to live healthier and longer but birth control was unheard of until recently, the few cities have become a nightmare to live in. [/b]
When humans, gnomes, halflings, dwarfs, orcs, gnolls, kobolds, goblinoids, lizardmen, and a few elves arrived on the continent they called New Light, they thought they had escaped overpopulation for a few 1000 years. They hoped to spread all over the continent, deal with the dangers, adapt to the environment and, eventually, adapt the environment to them as their people had done on other continents. But they had not counted on the ingenious population.
The fey folk, feline Mrrengar tribes, the musteloid Nehgie clans and the rat-like Nezumi nations were prepared for the new arrivals. As they could not make them turn back nor had the desire to kill them, they allowed each of the 10 races their own small area to settle, plus 3 areas where those who preferred to mix with other races could go. The native races, governed by a druid circle, wrongly thought that the new settlers would use their resources well and govern their own numbers. But nothing of the sort happened. Not only did they multiply as they used to, those settlements reachable by ship received more settlers from their home continent over time.
The settlements developed into giant cities barely controllable by their governments and full of intrigues and crime. against the wishes of the druid circle, some large roads were build to allow for better trade. A few smaller villages and strongholds, illegal outposts in the eyes of the druids, appeared as well. The first skirmishes between the New Nations, as they now called themselves, and the Old Nations happened, and eventually, it came to wars, and the New Nations also started squabbling among each other again.
A few decades ago, the Nezumi vanished almost over night. While the other native races were in uproar over it, the New Nations took it as a sign of their gods to claim the whole land. The exploration of the continent has thus started in all seriousness, and capable adventurers to do the task and root out the ever present ancient evil in the process are always welcome.
Campaign specific changes and restrictions:
Playable races are all the new settler races except the goblinoids. Drow and Duergar exist only as elves and dwarfs warped by evil and are thus not an option in this campaign.
Halflings in this campaign are more like Hobbits except that they do have a lot of people wanting to adventure at least once in their lives.
Clerics do not use bladed weapons other than knives and daggers, a habit they adapted from the local priests of various nature deities.
Elves are usually rather removed from their nature loving roots, although there is a "back to nature" movement.Last Activity: Monday, 25th June, 2012 04:28 PM

Tried to post the map but...
Campaign World: The World of Greyhawk
Rule System: 3.5
This particular campaign consists of some of the greatest modules ever printed for D&D including the original Slave Lord modules (A1-A4), Against the Giants (G1-G3), Descent into the Depths of the Earth (D1-D2), Vault of he Drow (D3), and Q1 (Queen of the Demonweb Pits). Along the way we use several other classic modules to "fill in the gaps" between levels and plot; The Lost City (B4), Castle Amber (X2), White Plume Mountain (S2), and to end the campaign The Tomb of Horrors (S1).
The characters are a diverse group of individuals whom have all been thrown together by fate.
Hailing from different regions within the Kingdom of Keoland our heroes will forge a strong friendship in the face of adversity.
Our campaign begins with individual stories setting up each of the character's backgrounds and the individual reasons that find them in the port city of Gradsul aboard the merchant vessel "The Midnight Moon".
The heroes consist of;
- Gell Raith and Dench Barkfist: Identical twin Half-Orcs raised in a temple of Heironeous. Gell is a rogue who follows the ways of the god Dalt while his brother Dench is a monk who follows the teachings of Heironeous.

Prestige classes and multi-classing
England is split into 3 nations, Northumbria, Britannia and Wales. Set in a "real-world" system, magic is both rare and powerful. The legends of Arthur and his knights long to become real.Last Activity: Tuesday, 24th April, 2012 04:08 PM

Fate is a web, each decision is a choice between strands, those who see the future can follow these starnds and may divine the most likely outcome. However every few centuries the future of the world rests on a one great event and that event will be shaped lies in the hands of a few special individuals. The paths of fate all converge into these crux-points and beyond them the future is black.Last Activity: Thursday, 26th April, 2012 03:40 PM

Deep beneath the surface of the world lies the Underdark, a realm of endless labyrinthine tunnels and caverns where the sun never shines. The drow--hated and feared even by their fellow dwellers in the darkness--raid other settlements in the Underdark as well as the surface world, taking prisoners back with them. Rendered unconscious with drow poison, then collared and shackled, these prisoners are often sold as slaves or entertainment in the dark elves' subterranean cities.
You, my beloved, are one such prisoner. What shall be your fate?Last Activity: Thursday, 19th May, 2016 04:28 PM

Under raging storm clouds, the vampire Count Strahd von Zarovich stands silhouetted against the ancient walls of Castle Ravenloft. Rumbling thunder pounds the castle spires. The wind’s howling increases as he turns his gaze down toward the village of Barovia. A lightning flash rips through the darkness, but Strahd is gone. Only the howling of the wind fills the midnight air. The master of Castle Ravenloft is having guests for dinner—and you are invited.Last Activity: Thursday, 28th April, 2016 05:18 AM
