Alpha Team has made it to the Frost Temple, destroyed the camp of Frost Giants and is resting for the night. They know there is a 15ft magic ruby inside guarded by at least one uber Frost Giant and want to be ready.
I am a new DM and starting a new campaign called Saving Tallingroth. This is my own environment and while the first adventure we ran was a free online adventure, I've been creating my own since then. I'm looking for those new to the game or those patient with others who are learning. This is meant to be a drop in group meaning there will usually be no commitment from week to week. To accomodate this the group will be quite large so if something comes up last minute and you have to drop out, it won't be devastating to those still coming.
It's also meant to be social. I'll usually be there a half hour before the game start getting setup and having a beer. Anyone who joins me early can setup their own character instead of taking a pregenerated character if they are new or they can just socialize and enjoy the time out until the game starts. I'll often stay after the game to finish my beer and hang out as well for a bit.
We also have a forum at www.tallingroth.ca for between session role playing. I give a little XP for any role playing done on there which won't get you a level all on it's own but may put you over the top for getting a level if you ended a session quite close.
