Still here and hoping we can continue! This pandemic has also made my life much busier than my already busy life, but always have time for a post a day or more. I mean how else am I to keep my sanity?!

I'm still here as always. The pandemic we're currently having doesn't make much difference to my life and especially as far as internet is concerned. I don't work, so no pressure there. I'm just waiting for my turn to roll the d20 again, so I find out if Shannon lives or dies.

BTW, I was going to post just to ask if the game died.

Seems the castle courtyard was protected by a Dispel Party ward. :(

Woohoo! Although now I fear that Horvik and Shannon are part of Bargle's next experiment... "Wake up, guys! Wake up!"

Welcome to the fray, Coronoides!

If you've got questions about the game, Mystara, the Thorn's Chronicle changes to Mystara canon, chime on in, here.

You can find character generation details in the "Session Zero" thread.

My plan is to emulate the BECMI Elf class as closely as I possibly can with only the 5e free Basic Rules.
Any suggestions are welcome, will be considered, and accepted or rejected.
I’m gonna be the Efliest elf that ever elfed.
Going with the “High Elf” as your PC’s race will get you a free cantrip, which should cover the “swords & magic” part of BECMI elf-y-ness. If you want to go with armor, I’d suggest the fighter class. But if you want to do magic user wizard and have even more magic, you’ve still got the racial proficiency with swords to fall back on. So you’re covered either way you want to play it, class-wise.

The party thus far is two fighters (ranged, and sword Axe & board), and we are emulating Basic D&D so an “all one class” party is not unheard of. Absent PCs and as-yet-to-be-met NPCs can fill in other class gaps.

Do you want to put my character in a dark corner of the cell chained?

Ok. Any chance you could go back and redact/delete where you have quoted me during character generation discussions (both threads)?

Unless you’re playing a dwarf or halfling, their cell is getting awfully crowded. We might have to start your PC in another cell nearby ;)

I seem to've lost a couple players since the world has ended. Coronoides has taken one of those slots, and there is still a fourth free. We're playing a 5e-ificiation of an adventure I expanded from the red box Basic Set and subsequent 3e treatment in the last print issue of Dungeon Magazine. As I'm shooting for a BECMI-like feel, the 5e Basic Rules evoke (for me, at any rate) the same vibe: just the bare bones of the 5e game: four races, four classes, trimmed down spell selection and sub-class options.

Familiarity with BECMI D&D, the Known World/Mystara setting (Karameikos in particular) is not expressly required, but is encouraged. You can find the character generation particulars in the Session Zero thread.

This was more a joke on how crowded the cell was getting than any kind of PC requirement. If there is another concept you want to explore, go for it!
