    Going to see how this turns out.

    Dungeons and Dragons is a table-top RPG game, though it isn't hard to play it online. The rules are explained in this document:

    ZooChat: D&D

    Every person who wants to participate in this game will be entering into a preparation phase. This phase (starting now) will be creating characters and asking/answering questions. When I feel the time is right, we will start the game.

    The game itself is an adventure with a character that you have created. The group of characters (users) will be a party, and the game will always be with the party.

    If anyone has any questions, do let me know. If there is a silent period without questions for two days, then I will open the gates for you all to start creating your character. When that is done, I will put the list of characters, a description of the world and the current map of the world into the Google Document.

    Hope that explains it fairly well. Please ask any questions if you feel it necessary. Happy D&D!

    What will the campaign be like? Will it just be a standard DnD campaign or will it be a campaign created by you or another person?

    This campaign will be a completely original one made by me. I will make new worlds, NPC's, maps and I will also remove certain things I find unnecessary in this version. For example, I have removed buffs and debuffs because I deem it to be unnecessary.

    I’m in. I’ve been waiting to do do a dnd campaign for a while and just recently my school started a club which I could not join due to schedule restraints:(. This should serve as a nice substitute.
    One quick question will you just take our word for the dice roll.

    Dice rolls will be performed my me (the DM). I will try to provide a screenshot, but if I can't, you'll have to take my word for it.

    I'm definitely interested but alas I've never played such a game before so it'll have to be in lame-man's terms.

    I assume we’re going to start at level 1 but just clarifying.

    Oh, levels aren't going to be in this one. For my campaign, I want to make it less about the rewards and more about having a good story.

    I know this is far in the future but when we start sessions it will probably be very late for you considering we are mostly American and @Hipporex is 8 hours behind you

    The story will be on here. I will just narrate it in a message here, and then when everyone messages back their choice or reaction, I will send the next narration.

    I know that we start designing our characters tomorrow, but I already have a idea of what character I want to play, so I'm currently sketching what I want my character to look like. As a big part of how my character will look like relies on this, I wanted to know if there are any deserts, jungles or swamps in the land the game will take place in.
