I'm starting up a 4th Ed. D&D campaign for those who are interested. We'll be starting with a character gen/introductory session on Wednesday August 5th at 6:30. I believe (though Dave can correct me if I am wrong) that this is the same time slot as Dave's Solomon Kane Slipstream game.
Brief intro for the campaign:
The small village of Ravenswood has enjoyed a relatively peaceful existence since the end of the Race Wars. However, when the priest of Moradin dies suddenly, events are set in motion that threaten to tear all of the world of Kitara asunder.
Brief intro about me as a DM:
I try to run a fairly relaxed game. I certainly don't claim to be an expert on the rules and if I can't find an answer quickly I'll make a ruling that lasts for the rest of the session until I can look it up further. I am a big fan of character backgrounds as it gives me an idea as to how to tailor the campaign in a fashion that all the players will enjoy. I like combat, but also feel that while its an important part of the game, its not the only part of the game -- still, though, there will usually be a fight to be found.
Character Gen will be standard point buy as outlined in the PHB. Feel free to take a background so long as it is not setting specific (Eberron, FR) though if there is a certain benefit you are looking for from one of those backgrounds talk to me, I'm sure we can work something out (keeping in mind you only get one benefit, not all of the options).
Feel free to ask any questions here or to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org If you e-mail me, be sure to put "D&D" or "Armored Gopher Game" or some such in the subject line as my work filter often sets aside unknown addresses.
Hope to see you all out there!
