One-Shot D&D

  • Jul 14, 2013 · 1:00 PM

There seems to be a lot of interest in playing D&D so I'm floating this idea for a meetup now, but am probably looking at July for the actual date.

I'm hoping we can run a couple of introductory sessions of 5-6 players each (1 GM, 4-5 PC). I've got one GM lined up already, but would be looking for a second. Editions are flexible, but I prefer the current playtest (D&D Next) since it would be less to digest for most new players and the material is freely available. The sessions would be 4 hours-ish depending on scheduling. I would also like to leave this open to "+1's" for significant others with interest.

    Can't make it this time around, but would be happy to one-shot DnD Next again another time.

    I'm going to back out to make room for someone on the wait list. I couldnt attend the character creation and I've never played before. Plus I don't know anyone besides Denise yet. Maybe there will be another opportunity to play another time when Im more established in the group.

      I definitely understand. Hopefully next time youll feel up to it!

    My future landlady just emailed to say I may get to move into my new place this weekend, which is awesome as my current place makes me want to set fire to things. In case I get the keys early, I'll back out now ( :( ) rather than at the last minute.

    Need a ride? If you're able to make your way somewhat close to my area (Renfrew) or somewhere along the way, I can take 4 passengers.

      No camping due to flood related complications - back on the wait list!

    If anyone needs dice, I have plenty extra. Also, has an edition been decided yet? I have some rule books I can bring along, just need to know which set.

    1 · June 18, 2013

    • Kelly

      Yup. I sent out a message a couple days ago with instructions. It's not a proper edition. It's the playtest of D&D Next. The link to access the most recent release is below.

      June 18, 2013

  • Amanda L.

    I've only ever watched matches. I have dice and a figure but yeah.... Never actually played. I'd love to come to this event though.

    June 15, 2013

    • Kelly

      No worries. This meetup is particularly for beginners.

    Hello!

    I've decided on dates for both a character generation evening and the actual session.  The character generation night is optional.  However, if you do not attend then you will be given a pre-generated character.

    Few notes about the one-shot: I will be emailing out my address closer to the date of the event, but I am in Arbour Lake (NW).  My significant other with likely be GM'ing one match and I will be GM'ing the other as nobody else has stepped forward.  I am usually a player, but am fairly familiar with the rules and it should be fun anyway.  You are responsible for your own dice (and miniature, if you desire to use one).  I will be sending out instructions on how to obtain the playtest in a couple days. You are responsible for printing copies of the relevant sections (How to Play, Races, Classes, and a Character Sheet).

    Some snacks will be provided, but it's always helpful if people want to bring extras.

      My hubby is gonna help me create a character. :)

      June 16, 2013

    • Kelly

      If you are going that route, you must use the most recent playtest rules and send me a copy of your completed character sheet by the date of the character gen meetup.

    For anybody with general interest, the playtest can be accessed by signing up here:

    I'm out of town on the 14th, so have fun!

    Since we're already full, Im going to work on pinning down a day. Can people send me their availability (just email me through meetup to avoid spamming everyone)? Im looking for general schedules (e.g. I work days M-F or evenings etc.). Ill try to include everyone as much as possible. Also, some answers to the following would be helpful: Do you have any related experience? If so, which games and editions? Do you have an edition (in particular) that you would like to play? Do you prefer prebuilt characters or would you like a separate tutorial on character building? Finally, are you interested in GMing and have you GMed before? Thanks!

    I've played 3.5 but never D&D Next. My boyfriend may be interested in joining us; if he is, I'll change my RSVP to "+1".

    I'm excited for this!!

    June 10, 2013

  • Kate

    YES! YES! YES!

    Anyone up for pathfinders?

    June 9, 2013

  • Krista

    Awesome, I definitely want to attend one of the introductory sessions! (Assuming the date(s) don't conflict with any prior obligations that I may have.)

    June 9, 2013

  • Colleen M

    Great idea - glad beginners welcome as I've always wanted to play! (Away July 10-14 & committed for Folkfest July 26-28 tho...)

    Would love this!

    June 9, 2013

  • Laura

    I haven't played for ages so I would need help developing a character and would probably be a complete retard the first session or so.
