LFP Chronicles of the Sword Coast (new players for existing campaign)

  • Title: Chronicles of the Sword Coast
  • System: D&D 5e
  • Setting: Forgotten Realms in the North Sword Coast area (around Phandalin, Neverwinter Wood, and Sword Mountains)
  • Story: This is a fairly traditional Forgotten Realms-type of campaign (though knowledge of FR is not required). This is an existing campaign, but several players had to leave in the last month so we're looking for new players. We ran through "Lost Mines of Phandelver" (with some modifications) and we are just starting "season 2" of the campaign, so it's a good time for new players to join. They're currently heading out to investigate a buildup of orcs nearby, but the overall story arc for the next session will involve both the Feywilds and Shadowfell pretty centrally. The current characters are a minotaur barbarian with a connection to the Feywilds and a human monk. There are not any particular requests or restrictions on character concepts, but I like to discuss new characters as a group so everyone can riff off each others ideas, so it's fine to come with a specific idea, but don't pre-make a character. New characters will start at 5th level.
  • Sessions: We play virtually every other Sunday from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM MST (UTC -7).

11am MST should be 8pm CEST. Starting 9pm would work for me. But are you really saying that you are playing 16 hours straight??
My limit is until midnight, which makes it roughly 3 hours only.

Thanks for catching that. We play 11 AM to 3 PM, so 4 hours. Ending at 2 PM (midnight your time) would probably work.

If you play 12pm to 3pm MST (9pm to 12am CEST) that would work perfectly for me. By the way, what is your timeline to find people, create characters and begin to play your second season?
No offense, but before joining a long campaign I would love to play a one-shot or two with you guys to see if that is my playing style and whether I would make a good fit or not. Would that be possible?

No offense taken! I think that makes a lot of sense. Let me talk to the others.

For timelines, I'd like it to be quick (in the next couple weeks), but that depends on how long it takes to find players. I'd like 2 more players (4 total) and I've posted in a few other groups.

I think what I'd like to do is have a one-shot in the next few weeks (probably June 27th or July 11th, since July 4th is a holiday here) with the current players and prospective new players.

The dates are ok for me, although I would prefer the Saturday instead of the Sunday.
