Wizards has sent out the play test materials for what looks like the final pre-publication run. I would love to run a group through a session.

    Greetings Gamers,

    Just a teaser!

    This adventure will take place beginning in the city of Alyrien in the kingdom Tanarsa.

    I have the following assignments: Patrick will play a 13th level monk, Miriam will play a 13th level the monk, Mark will play 14th level mage, Kel will play a 14th level cleric, Thomas will play a 15th level barbarian, and Robert will play 15th level rogue.

    There's been a kidnapping! A Baron son has been kidnapped. In fact, not just any son of the Baron, he is the Baron’s heir. A rogue cult of Amazons has stolen him away in the dark of the night. They sailed west from Alyrien into the Thousand Isles.

    The parties been summoned to the Baron’s manse to speak with the Baron and the Baroness about the disappearance.

    The adventure "tales of a Wimpy Lord: disappeared," will be equal parts mystery and combat. So, put your thinking caps on and join me on Sunday evening for our next Play-test Session.

    Let the Games Begin!

    In Service, Rich

    Hi Thomas, If everyone shows up,we are full up. I am glad to roll up a character for you in a stand by mode. We could use another fighter or Mage.

    • Dark

      Hi Thomas, I will gin up the whole package for you. No worries.

      February 7, 2013

    • Thomas

      Thanks Dark, sent you an email.

      February 7, 2013

  • Gi_Kyo

    I do not mind having another player involved if he wants to play.

    February 7, 2013

  • Thomas

    Hey all, do you have room for another player? If so, what time/where on Feb 10th? Depending on that I would be down to play.

    February 3, 2013

  • Gi_Kyo

    Me too.

    I'm not sure how many will be watching the Superbowl on 3 Feb, but how about 10 Feb as the next gaming night?

    January 28, 2013

    • Seth

      That sounds great!

      January 28, 2013

    • Miriam

      I'm down for it.

      January 29, 2013

  • Dark

    I sent you all a message. I will have to cancel for Sunday evening.

    I will send out an email as well. As promised, I added the poem that your party found on the Vine cultist to the www site: http://zhalindor.com/DnD-playtest/. Additionally a few wanted posters have gone up in town (also on the www site).

  • Gi_Kyo

    It was a good experience using 5th edition for the first time

    January 14, 2013

  • Miriam

    I had a lot of fun. It's too early to pass judgment on the system, but I'm looking forward to trying it out some more.

    January 14, 2013

  • Seth

    Fantastic evening!

    January 13, 2013

  • Michael

    Lots of fun. Definitely a good group of folks.

    January 13, 2013

  • Dark

    Everyone except for Gi_Kyo should have their character sheets in the email you provided. The source documents with the descriptions of the abilities, skills, feats, etc. can be downloaded from the Wizard.com site. One piece of admin, does anyone have any food allergies that I should be aware of? (I wasn't planning on covering the chairs in peanut butter or anything, but, if I make some hot snacks, I don't want to poison anyone unintentionally.) In service, Rich

      LoL - very well, I will forego the fungi from Yuggoth as well.

      January 12, 2013

    • Miriam

      I keep kosher. So....no pork or shellfish, please?

    That nicely leaves the human wizard for Gi_Kyo. I started the PC generation last evening and will continue tonight. For those that provided email addresses, I will scan and forward a copy of your PC.

    January 11, 2013

  • Dark

    So, here is what I have Player Character wise:

    PCs - Players

    Elvish Rogue - Michael
    Human Fighter - Cecil
    Human Rogue - Seth
    Elvish Cleric - ???
    Human Wizard - ???

    Any changes or druthers?

    January 10, 2013

    • Miriam

      I'm down for the elvish cleric.

      January 10, 2013

  • Dark

    OK, I have the maps of your home village and surrounding area as well as a list of notable NPCs in town. The inn and the blacksmith cover basic goods that you would find in a general store. The site is http://zhalindor.com/DnD-playtest/

    January 9, 2013

  • Dark

    I will have some more details out Wednesday and Thursday evenings, e.g., maps, significant NPCs, etc. The general scenario is two-fold; first, find out what is causing some of the local cows to simply *disappear* from the fields, and second, investigate what has happened to some of the villages children that are missing. The PCs will be from 5-7th level. I will pre-gen the PCs for you to save time on Sunday evening. In service, Rich

    If you have not sent me your direct email address yet, please do so. I will need to send you some materials in advance, and I cannot do that through the Meetup email interface. Thank you! Should be a lot of fun!

    January 8, 2013

  • Bob G.

    I'm interested, but am going to have to make sure I can make the date. I didn't want to lose the spot by waiting, should be able to confirm Wednesday latest.

    January 7, 2013

  • Dark

    Each of the participants has a greeting from me with directions for how to get to Staatsland. More to follow as your information comes in. This should be great fun!

    Hi Jim, thank you! Those are all good things! In service, Rich @Andres, I sent you an email in response.

    January 6, 2013

  • Andres

    Is the location near metro?

    January 5, 2013

  • Jim

    Rich, I've moved this to the front page, given you host/editor status, and throttled it down to five players (which you should be able to change; let me know if you need help with that). Let me know if you need any further help with this one!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
