D&D5e and Savage Worlds RPG, IT'S HAPPENING

#1

I will be cramming my mostly bald nugget with as much info as I can in the next few weeks. I have the basics for what I need to host a D&D5e game. Module is a starter for 4-5 players with level 1 characters. There are some pre-generated characters. It will start in three weeks on the weekend of the 26th-28th of April. Who wants in and what times are good for everyone? Friday midday is great for me or Saturday evening starting at 9pm Eastern. Sunday morning is potentially doable but not preferred.

However if the interest is there I am looking at running a Savage Worlds RPG as well. Maybe run each game every other week? Haven’t decided on setting yet. We could do The Last Parsec (sci-fi space trek) or we could do Deadlands Reloaded (alternate history wild west with spirits and magic). The great thing about Savage Worlds is that their is a metric shit ton of stuff for Fantasy Grounds. The main books are also rather inexpensive.

For now you should grab a demo (free) copy of Fantasy Grounds either from:
http://www.fantasygrounds.com/

or Steam:

Doesn’t matter where you download it from, you can link your Steam account to the Fantasy Grounds website but it is not necessary.

You might want to watch some YouTube vids on character creation for 5e in FG and check out the Fantasy Grounds College: https://fantasygroundscollege.net/

No worries. You can catch the next run. I am thinking about doing two bimonthly games. Preferably one DnD5e and the other Savage Worlds. These first few games will be training and refining the skills of the players and myself. Mistakes will be made. I will be treating these first few runs as one shots. People can take their characters into another module or reroll a fresh one. My goal is to get everyone who wants to play into a game.

Instead of starting with The Lost Mine of Phandelver, I found a couple of 1 hour adventures we will be using.

Pinnacle’s flagship product is Deadlands , a horrific journey into the “Weird West.” Mysterious beings called the Reckoners have given life to monsters and magic, causing history to divert from July 4th, 1863 forward. The South has won its independence, California has shattered into a labyrinth of flooded sea-canyons, and a mysterious super-fuel called “ghost rock” has spawned as much war and strife as it has “steampunk” devices.

Players are steely-eyed gunfighters, card-slinging sorcerers called hucksters, mysterious shamans, savage braves, mad scientists, and more who battle against evil and attempt to prevent the “Reckoning”.

This updated version of Deadlands: Classic, Deadlands: Reloaded , uses our Savage Worlds system. Prior versions exist for Deadlands “Classic,” d20, and GURPS.

I have some one hour adventures and an adventure module. I am creating some archetype characters. Anyone who wants to play can choose from the pre-gens or create one themselves. For anyone interested, download a demo copy of Fantasy Grounds for free either from Steam or the Fantasy Grounds website. I can do a FG training and character creation session. The software is free and doesn’t expire. The sessions will be free. All it will cost is some of your time.

What you will need to play:

  • A computer: Windows, Mac, or Linux
  • Discord: Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, or Android
  • Fantasy Grounds: Demo or paid version for Windows, Mac, or Linux

The Last Parsec is a scifi setting of planetary exploration and adventure using Savage Worlds!

Faster-than-light travel has finally allowed humanity to spread beyond its lonely corner of the Milky Way. In the depths of space these explorers found millions of star systems, strange planets, and exotic alien races. Centuries later, they form the Known Worlds, a vital region of trade and technology where empires grow and business thrives.

It is an unparalleled age. Cutting edge science has opened limitless frontiers of space and consciousness, and has even begun to hint at the mysteries of the universe itself. But to find them, one must travel beyond the familiar, to the last parsecs of reality.
