In a world where herds of wandering stegosaurus have replaced cattle, pterodons swoop across golden orange of a sunset, and t-rexes prey on lonely cowhands, the small town of Horned Oasis stands. It's most prominent member, the aged dwarven gentleman Thokrenjik, has had ten of his hired hands disappear in the last three weeks while herding his livestock. Concerned and frustrated, Thok has arranged for a party of talented individuals under the leadership of his nephew and heir Sezzin to escort his stegosaurus herd to the drop-off location and keep an eye our for aggressive dragonborn tribes along the way.
I've been a player in three campaigns and a number of one-shots for 5e over the past year, but this is my first time DMing so there will be a few kinks along the way. I'm trying to get started as soon as possible.
There are a few rules to my game:
1. No swearing, sexual innuendos, etc. I want everyone in this campaign to feel safe and so I want to keep conversations wholesome and uplifting. If this becomes a problem, I will remove individuals from my game.
2. I'm expecting my players to post 4-5 times a week. I can work through rough spots and everyone has days where they can't post, but in general, I want to see this campaign move along fairly quickly.
3. I don't want to limit my player's imaginations, because really, the story is about the characters and everyone deserves to feel like a hero. I am prepared to be absolutely unprepared for what my characters do. But I want to keep a storyline intact, and so I require that your character has a legitimate reason for their actions. Burning down the church because the priest is corrupt and vulnerable to fire- perfectly fine! Burning down the chaos and ruining the plot in the name of chaos isn't.
There may be more rules that I'll add as I go along, but we'll approach them as they come out. I do have a Discord set up for players to discuss the campaign. Again, if you are still interested in playing, let me know and tell me a little about yourself!
Excited to Hear From You,
