So, after Lander the Lucky lost his head, and Soda Popinsky took off heads, Charlie has offered to run Horde of the Dragon Queen every other week starting this coming Sunday. Charlie will confirm but we expect to start with the final episode in Horde and then move to the rise of Tiamat which aligns closely with the timeline of Consequences of War.

Thanks Charlie!

Well i suggested we at least do the last chapter of hotdq that way some people are better geared for rise of tiamat (and we have money for resing people). And makes It somewhat easier to decide on the two key factors; the fate of the castle and the black dragon mask. Although its going to be a grueling slug fest if it goes wrong.

Also rise of tiamat layout is more confusing than hotdq. Reads like a choose your own adventure book.

Agreed. He'll need time to prepare.

Also was our "world" considered standard or high fantasy? This is in regards to starting wealth for higher level characters.

This makes sense. I don't know how long the last episode is but is it possible to finish it in one of our sessions?

Thanks guys! Some things about me and the way I DM

1. Lots of improv, and lots of spontaneous events. Don't be surprised if a lot of NPCs have the same accent.

2. If you can describe it well enough, it can work. That being said, if you do something crazy, don't be surprised if it backfires.

3. Obviously I'll be going by the book, but side quests are always good, and I'll try to factor in some of your backstories.

And I'll go with high fantasy, just to inflate the market a bit. Unless RoT has a world type.

If its rise of tiamat, then level 8. If its last chapter of horde, then its 7th.
Sounds like we're doing rise.

Looking at builds, sounds like 3 spellcasters, paladin, cleric, monk and weapon toting barbarin.
Really tempted to make a grappler/hulk build (which is hillarious). But might have to lean to a ranged person.

A lot of my spells are leaning towards range. Ray of Sickness, enfeeblement, Poison Spray, fire bolt, lightening bolt, and melf's acid arrow. A lot of the real undead support stuff is just coming into range for me.

Also with my proficiency and ability mod my spell attack is +5 at 6th level already.

Awesome. Remember that Chris has built Sterog to be the tankiest out of all of us since he's a punching sorcerer. Once he has the Dragon mask, he should end up having the highest AC.

Idk how the cleric is fighting but I know I'm using greatswords and Steven's barbarian is more tanky with sword and shield.

Hard to tell. Most of us can push 19-22 ac without magic items if the person is munchkin'd for it. In which case, best way to overcome ac is to use stuff which doesnt need ac to damage (which there is a lot, and some which dont use saves for half/none)
What sort of monkey grip your using for greatswords? Longswords I can understand.
My grappler does have a level in rouge so he could pick locks. Other than that I was thinking of using the personality trait have having him use hand signals and grunting for communication. Or I could do a 'groot' routine if someone would be my 'rocket racoon' for translations. Though I would need someone willing to cast enlarge person on me to make my stuff better.
If maggie is being a death cleric, I think she was trying to use a glaive in form of a scythe for flavor.

What do you mean by monkey grip? I'll have 18 AC because of Warforged's +1 AC and splintmail.

Couldn't you customize a background so you have thieves' tools instead of multiclassing?

For expertise, got to have that prof. Bonus (which makes my grapples and shoves at a +9 min befor rolling contested). I could have advantage on the roll prior to rage if I took the grappler feat, but I took a different feat for an amusing trick based on my characters lifting capacity.
Arent greatswords 2 handed weapons?

Oh ok, that makes sense then.

Yeah they are two-handed. Paladin offers the Great Weapon fighting style, reroll all 1's and 2's, which applies to all damage associated to that attack including smites. Plus Beric is already a sword and board paladin so I wanted to mix it up.

Well you said greatswords, so thought you were two weapon fighting.

Sorry, I see the confusion now. I wrote it plural just because there will be more than one greatsword he uses throughout the campaign.

What's the trick you can do based off your carrying capacity?

Involves 6 things. Enemies (more than one for amusement, one is kinda plain), improvised weapon rule, being able to lift more than 300 lbs (not really needed but for some realistic sense, my base carrying capacity is currently 510lbs, and i am barley using 40lbs worth of gear), a creative player, and a creative dm.
You can ask russel from the adventure leauge about the crypt adventure and my handmade weapon 'excalabold'. He can tell you the story. He was a good sport about it. Hard to relate the amusement in written form. I can talk about sunday.
'Escalabold' version one weighed about 40lbs and used as an improvised greatclub.

It sounds awesome. One thing that I'm unsure about with the oathbreaker paladin is the holy symbol. I'm still supposed to use it as a focus but I technically don't have a god. Would I still use a symbol of Bane?

Just bear the broken symbol of your former god. Should suffice.
