Mentzer Basic Dungeons and Dragons Meet-up for New Role Players

  • Feb 1, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Now that I’ve determined that there are enough people interested in playing this system I’m going to invite all of you to come out and talk about the campaign.

What I’d like is to get everyone that wants to play together and field questions also get feedback about what they expect from their experience with the game.

In order to do this I’d like everyone to show up at Bluegrass Magic game shop so we can sit down and talk.

As with the last posting this isn’t a game session but a preliminary meeting to put names to faces and talk a little bit.

The basic premise of the campaign is below:

In the far Northeastern portion of Karameikos in the Altan Tepes Mountains is Castellan Keep. A lonely bastion meant to keep Goblins, Orcs and even Giants at bay and protect the Southlands. As winter sets in getting supplies to the men and women guarding the kingdom is of utmost importance. The last two attempts to get a caravan to the lonely outpost failed, with no survivors to give an indication of what happened.

A new caravan has been put together and you have been recruited to get it from the Duke’s Road Keep to Castellan keep and find out what is going on out there.

Just in case there is any ambiguity. This meet-up is ONLY  for people interested in being a part of the Basic Dungeons and Dragons game despite the casual nature of its listed activities.

    It was great getting to meet all of you good people and putting faces to names on the board. Glad we got as much discussion accomplished as we did; so now we've got a lot of stuff out of the way. That way we don't have to deal with it during the first actual game. Please take some time to review that information packet I gave you to read, and let me know if you have any questions. Looking forward to the first game with everyone. Peace
    Jester

    Is a cleric a good starting class for a beginner?

    January 26, 2014

    • John Caleb T.

      I understand I'll wait until tge 1st to ask all my questions. Most videos and material I've been reading is advanced material so I am undoubtedly getting ahead of myself! I'm like that though when I become interested in something I soak up as much as possible

      Hey BW, This meetings isn't the first game session. My agenda for this session is to first, get to know people and their experiences and let people to get to know one another as well. Second, I’ll explain the campaign premise and expectations I have for the players. Third I’ll take any feedback or concerns the players may have and then we’ll figure out the best day to meet for the actual first game. I hope that helps bud.

    Hello Everyone, as promised I'm giving you 24 hours notice that this session will have to be moved to Feb 1st due to weather concerns. I hope this doesn't cause a problem, if it does please let me know and I'll set up something up on a personal basis. Please check your emails as well. Thanks --Jester

      I'm not sure what the weather situation will be this weekend but I will do my best to be there for all of you. However I will email everyone and post here if there is any change in plans. Just keep an eye out just in case.

      I've never been before but I'm excited and have been reading slot about d&d

      January 24, 2014

  • Bigwooley

    Jester, i don't know if you have enough people to play but I use to play and I am seeking a game. I prefer to play a Ranger type character, chaotic good. I hope you can fit me in. I also wanted to say if it's a wed to Friday night I can host I live in Germantown.

      Oh and jester I haven't played in over 15 years the amount I remember won't be enough for any conflict. I just remember the order of things (I think) but it would be up to you.

      Hey Bigwooley, Good to have you take an interest buddy. So far this game has generated lots of interest but I'm going to wait until this meet up to determine if I really have any players. Come by the shop and listen to the campaign pitch and see if it's something you'd like to be a part of and we can go from there. And the fact that you haven't played in such a long time may be a bonus to you, really. I want people that don't have a preconceived notion of what gaming should be about and it sounds like you'd fit right in. I hope to see you there bud.

      January 23, 2014

  • Samantha A.

    Do you already have all the people for this group, or can new people join?

      Hello Samantha, I'm looking for people that are new to role playing games in general and I have a lot of interest but I'm not sure how many people will actually be playing the game, yet. So, feel free to come and shoot the breeze and hear the campaign pitch and put some names to faces, if nothing else. Hope to see you there.

      January 21, 2014

  • John Caleb T.

    Let the journey Begin!

    January 20, 2014

    • John Caleb T.

      Thanks man and I'll need to pick up or find a site to read up on to deciding or creating my character

      No need for that buddy. When we meet for the first session we'll be making characters together and I can walk you through the entire process in about 15-20 minutes. Honestly the longest part of making a character for this version of D&D is buying equipment. Oh, and you may want to wait until the meet up before making a decision about investing any time or money in this game.
