Hey everybody. Long time player AE games, here. I've been following this magical world since it was just Adventurequest. Now, I'm a budding Dungeon Master. I was hoping to bring some of the awesome lore/characters/monsters into my campaign. I was wondering if anyone has already done this, and if they would ming sharing creature stats/homebrew mechanics/etc. If nothing else,I'll come back regularly and post my own builds incase anyone else wants to bring the gorgeous world of lore to life at home.

Please do not include real-life information in your posts. ~Gingkage

Well howdy there! Nice to meet you.

I also enjoy Dungeon Mastering, and play many games with my family and friends. It's a fun way to tell a story and get engagement from people, as well as to lose yourself in fantasy for a little while.

However, this is a play-by-post RP forum. It works a little differently from what you're used to! For example, we don't use stats, dice, or really any numbers in general. Classes, races, and settings are based off of your imagination and creativity, rather than a rulebook or compendium. This also allows you to mess with various rules and restrictions, such as my current RP, Doomwood Rising. It works a little bit like traditional D&D in that you run into encounters and make out of combat decisions, but the success or failure of your encounter is determined by how well you describe your fight rather than how high or low you roll.

The main strength of PBP RP is that you have greater flexibility to develop your character, even during critical moments. There's a lot less focus on gameplay and mechanics, which gives you a lot more time to consider how your character feels about combat, or what their life was like before the adventure, and share it with the other players. Good examples are found in the Elemental Championships, where the height of combat and excitement often leads to the most critical character developments.

So, is there a different subforum you think I should take this topic?

I would say the Entertainment Forum is probably what you're looking for! You're welcome to try out these forum RPs, but if you're looking to form a group or discuss the finer points, the Entertainment Forum is more in line with that.

With that said, there's no rule that says you can't run a straight-up DnD campaign on this forum! You simply have to articulate the results of the rolls in-character. It's been done before, and well.
