Title: [D&D 5E] The Dragon Talismans: An MTG Adventure [6/7|4]
Post by: GeekyGamerZack on October 17, 2017, 09:25:35 PM
System: D&D 5E
Style: Mainly storytelling with a Magic: The Gathering theme
Players: 4-7
@Acetwinelf
@AzuraHerald881
@BlazingFox
@Harbinger
@Mr.Nuclearpidgeon
@rjbprime
Starting Info: 3rd-level start with milestone-based level up
Skill Level: Low-to-moderate, DM tends to be fair and easygoing
Posting Expectations: Ideally every other day
Restrictions: Must use allowed options and reskins as listed in the provided campaign guide and Plane Shift PDFs
Notes: As DM, I put a lot of emphasis on story, so I encourage good roleplaying from every player. I've been told by my group's other DM that I am quite "fair", and I suppose he's right about that, as I don't seek to punish players with brutal challenges and near-impossible monster encounters, hence my aforementioned emphasis on story. Expect my campaign to be mainly focused on a fun experience rather than challenging gameplay.

Since this campaign is based on MTG, knowledge of its setting and characters is useful, but not strictly required. As such, this campaign will take place on a mixture of established and original planes, with a fair number of newly-devised characters. And the best part? Every PC is a Planeswalker, complete with their own individual origin and "first-walk" planes!
Joining Instructions: Post your interest in the campaign and say if you're definitely on-board. The first seven players to post will form the adventuring party, and will receive a copy of the available character options. If you need any help with making your characters, or with MTG lore, I am here to help.

Please count me in, GeekyGamerZack, for I'm rather thrilled in seeing a DnD game through a MTG's Planewalker.  :D

Awesome, we now have the minimum players for the campaign! @Otter or @Indigo, could you please create the campaign? Thanks in advance! :D

Grats on hitting your minimum player count.  =)

Here is your game thread (http://irate-pirate.org/(5e)-the-dragon-talismans/)!

I will leave the LFP thread up until you hit your maximum number.  Please ping me again if/when that happens and I will move it.

Hey I would love to join your Dragon Talismans campaign if you'll have me! I've been dying to get back into playing DnD and I'm thinking about playing a white-blue owl Aven storm sorcerer. I'll flesh out my character more if I get the OK!

@Mr.Nuclearpidgeon Of course. Welcome aboard! :D

Awesome! I'm about to head out for a bit but I'll be back on later on tonight to post my character :D Are Aven mechanically the same as Aaarakocra?

Post by: GeekyGamerZack on September 07, 2018, 06:14:41 PM
They certainly are. Given the fact that you'd like your aven character to resemble an owl, I recommend Bant as their origin plane. In any case, you'll find the info you need right here:

Again, welcome aboard! :D

A friendly reminder to all that there are still two slots available:

Black-Red
White-Black

I would love to join in on the MTG fun.

Is there still a seat open?

Post by: GeekyGamerZack on September 08, 2018, 03:38:47 AM
Yep. In fact, there are two: one White-Black, the other Black-Red. ;)

Excellent *Mr.Burns.jpg*

I'd like to play a Boros-y type cleric. Is the Zeal domain allowed, from Planeshift Zendikar? Otherwise I'd most likely do Forge or Light (or Arcana, just to grab Firebolt without a feat. But that overlaps a bit with Light anyway).

@Harbinger Hm...we already have a Red-White Planeswalker in the party. If you like, I could possibly change the Black-Red slot back to purely Red, but only if @Mr.Nuclearpidgeon is fine with his character being purely Blue. :)

And yes, the Zeal domain is allowed, especially if your character has spent some time on Amonkhet. Forge could work well for a character who reveres Purphoros on Theros, or indeed a member of the Boros Legion. ;)

Ahh I guess I misunderstood slightly.

Orzhov colors are acceptable, too. Grave domain.

Post by: GeekyGamerZack on September 08, 2018, 06:52:19 AM
Okey-dokey! I should mention that your character's mana marker will be White if you choose Orzhov colours, but feel free to choose any spells you like from either colour. :)

Anyway, welcome aboard! :D

Just a reminder that there is still an opening for a Black-Red Planeswalker available, so be sure to let me know if you're interested in some MTG fun. Thanks! :)
