DnD "5.0" play test.

  • March 2, 2013 · 6:00 PM

I have been with a group for two years and have been interested in trying out the new iteration of DnD. Wizards is currently releasing monthly play test packets and slowly introducing characters and races. I am willing to DM it, but I need players. Experience not required since we will all be learning the new rules; however, after a quick glance it looks like the classic 1st edition rules with some really cool updates. I would need a place, and I could do Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

    So it looks like we are back down to four, so hopefully Miciah can make it.
    Here is the schedule for the night:
    First we will spend the first hour to an hour-and-a-half creating characters and just generally getting to know one another. You can start thinking of the type of character you want to run. I do have to tell you the races and classes are pretty limited during this playtest.
    Once the characters are built I will run you all through a little mini adventure with 3-5 combat scenarios. This should end about 10 or 11 o'clock.
    As we continue we may all decide we like 4E better and roll back to that game system. I also know Fnord was interested in running some 4E in the future. All of this is fine for me I am just hoping to get a stable group that can meet at least twice a month.

    I will see you all at 6pm. Kris

      Dave right now we have 5, maybe 6 players. I think we are at our limit. Also Courtney may be joining us in the future if her schedule permits.

      My house, at least this session. I'm open to hosting if the location is convenient. I'll email my address to anyone who hasn't been over for a past game.

    With all the changes in people's schedules we are down to 4 players, maybe 5. Miciah if you are still available there is room at the table. Also as a side note the location will be posted later this week. Fnord is that something you can do, or because I started this, am I the only one with that access?

      Dave, I am sorry but we are already at 7 people for this session. Keep your eye out though because we may be beginning a regular game night once a week or twice a month. Right now we are trying the new DnD next, but we may transition to 4.0 if we do not like it.

    Okay, we have a confirmed date and a location that will be posted closer to game time. It will be held in the North West part of the valley. We are going to start the night off with some character creation and a little bit of combat to get use to the mechanics. I plan to run this every two weeks. I look forward to seeing everyone in two weeks!

      Urbane, Do you have a conflict every Saturday (probably every two weeks), or just on the 2nd? I ask because we may still need people in a few weeks.

    Let's hold off on this playtest for a little bit. I am busy fo a few weeks and starting this in March may be better. Hopefully I have a better place to play then. We will definitely do this, just not this weekend.

    As for time it looks like 5pm on this Saturday. Does anyone else have a suggestion for a location or are we going to meet at Denny's like Miciah suggested? In the future we may be able to do this at my house (in Goodyear), but not this weekend. If someone else has another suggested place, please share otherwise we will meet at Denny's on 17 and Dunlap.

    February 15, 2013

    • Fnord F.

      I'm running 4th tomorrow at 6, so I'd be out in that case. I thought this was happening after the dates you listed...

      February 15, 2013

    • Fnord F.

      ... still interested though, if there's a way to work it out.

    I'm definitely interested, but go ahead and say so if you think the group is too crowded by now. My work schedule is random, but Sundays are best since we close earliest that day. Any day I could potentially make or not make though.

      Courtney you are welcome to join. I think with you that makes 5 or 6.

    As far as the time, how does 5pm on Saturday work for everyone?

      I don't know how far west everyone is but Denny's at I17 and Dunlap has a private room; all they ask us a total purchase of $25 in food for the whole group.

    Thomas once you RSVP we will have our group. Now we just need a location. It sounds like Saturdays will be the winner as far as which day. Now does anyone have a location we can play at? My house is kind of small so I would rather not do it here, but I am looking for a new place with room for a gaming room. Any ideas?

    FYI Saturday 2/23 is out for me since I will be going to the renaissance fair that day, and 3/9 is out as well as I will be running a 5K (ugh!) If we get a location we can work through character builds and try out some combat, then begin the true playtesting on 3/2.

    February 13, 2013

  • Thomas

    I'd be interested in playing as well. Friday and Saturdays work best for me too

    February 13, 2013

  • Odo'Ital

    I'd be interested, and either Saturday or Sunday works for me.

    This is good! One or two more people, then we just need a location. Saturdys or Sundays seem to be the best time. I can also do Wednesday night, but I work until 4 or 5 and have to be at work the next morning so it would be a short session during week and more time if it is on the weekend. Also I was thinking twice a month rather than every week.

    February 13, 2013

  • Fnord F.

    I ran the very first playtest, and it was well received by the group. I wouldn't mind seeing how they've changed it since the initial iteration.

    Great! Looks like Friday I may be playing pathfinder, but Saturday or Sunday will be preferable. Wednesday would work, but I have work on Thursday. The time will depend on the location's availability.
