Simselves on an Adventure

I miss dungeons and dragons. Do you? That wonderful game that is a scheduling simulator because schedules just never sync up and it's almost impossible to get everyone together at the same time?

Yeah. I haven't been able to play more than a few spotty sessions every six months at minimum. So I just really want to play. With some encouragement that peeked ideas I am going to pull together a little campaign story.

Basic premise: simstory authors are going to submit their simselves for me to download into my game. Their simselves are going to come to "my house" where I am going to be dungeon master and lead them through a campaign.

They can also submit their simselves' character that will be in the campaign but I have to clean up some rules on that. (Will post more info below)

I will than release story "sessions" of the group of Sims participating in the campaign.

More info of exactly how this will run in a post below.

    Submission Rules:
    I have almost zero CC, so if you use CC I would need it.
    I do not own Strangerville, luxury stuff, bowling stuff or Cool Kitchen stuff. All others are fine.
    GalleryID is important to find your submission. :)

    I need a height slider for halflings and such if that is possible. Or I might be doing some fancy editing of pictures.

    Character Guidelines:
    All base class and races are allowed.
    Homebrew I would need to see because there are so many.
    Kender are allowed.
    Level 3-6 will be starting level. (To be determined soon)

    Link to the story:

    Current Players:
    Shadami - as Dungeon Master
    CathyTea as Cat Littlebird a woodelf Cleric
    PitlordMaggie as Half-elf Fighter/rogue
    DivantheSimmer - Davion Night a human knight/Sorceror
    Munterbacon as Squall a water genasi druid
    Xantheanmar as a Human Monk/Paladin
    Aranthal at Tortle sendo Monk
    Morningstar as Nyx the Nocturne rogue druid
    AdamEve1231 as tibbit ninja

    No more spots open for this campaign.

    I would like at least six players, but no more than ten characters, until listed with class/race nothing is set in stone. And always likely to change as dnd does.

    Amount of interest/players will determine character levels.

    I'm looking forward to this! Fair warning: I don't really know anything about DnD, except it sounds fun. I'll read a little bit more about it and I may not be able to play it in real life, but I could use my imagination.

    @divanthesimmer I'm in the process of setting up a Discord Server for @Shadami , so once that's done and the player's have joined, I'll be able to share some goodies that will be helpful for creating a character. I'll be happy to help out in the creation process also, once we know the parameters around allowed Player Races :)

    The discord will for sure help in various ways. I do have a mic as well so I'll be able to talk to guide through character creation . I'm technically available all the time unless I'm sleeping, and discord goes to my phone so I know if someone needs my attention.

    I went to sleep last night, but I'll set up paramaters for characters now. :) Only thing I won't know yet is what level you will be starting at because I have to see how many players we're going to get. It'll be between 3-6 though.

    I used to play Dungeons and Dragons Online, but it's been years. Do you need a Simself in order to participate? I don't have a Simself (too creepy, but that's just me) but I do have Discord...

    Well you need a sim to represent yourself at least. I'm going to be writing a sim lit from this. :)

    I don't know anything about it, either, except that lots of friends play!

    Can my Simself's character be a Wood Elf named Cat Littlebird?

    Also, I'd like to upload my Spectrum SimSelf because she seems to act and look most like me.

    Yes you can! :)
    And no worries the experienced players can help you out. :smiley:

    Oh and 5th edition for the character sheet. I'll walk through how to do it and get links and such once I'm home. Mother's day stuff. :)

    Unless 3.5 is easier/ more appealing because of skills. I can run both fairly easily.

    Wood Elf Stats in 5th edition
    Wisdom +1 Dex +2
    Training with longsword, shortsword, shortbow, and longbow
    Base walking speed is 35
    Mask of the wild - you can attempt to hide even when only lightly obscured by foliage, heavy rain, falling snow, mist, and other natural phenomena.
    Darkvision- can see in dim light up to 60 feet as if it was bright light, in darkness as if it were dim light. Can't discern colors in darkness, only shades of grey.
    Keen Senses- proficient in perception
    Fey Ancestry- advantage on saving throws against charm. Magic can't put you to sleep
    Trance- don't need sleep, just meditate for 4 hours a day. (This counts as a long rest)

    Wood elf it is, then! :)

    And I just uploaded the Spectrum CT for use on this. :)

    Discord channel is up!

    https://discord.gg/PnTnZ5
    Join if you’re interested, the link will expire after a day, so sing out if you need a new link, by them I suspect that Shadami will have ownership over the channel.

    Can also grab a permalink and send it out to players. I have to get my husband to actually sign up for the forums instead of just lurking.

    Yeah, I'll do that after this one expires and PM you the link so you can send it to the players... Kept the first one as a temp link in case there were spammers lurking the forums waiting for Discord Links to further their plans of World Spamification :D

    Rankings are a blessing for that. XD you have one #welcome thread that anyone can post in and you give ranks to just the ones that you okay to post in the other channels.

    Took me forever to figure my way around discord to get all of that set up but gosh is it a blessing for twitch and all the spammers.

    I'm going to submit a human knight named Davion Nightingale as my Simself's character. My Internet is really slow this time of the month, so the Discord link is taking forever to load, but I'll try again later. Just a suggestion: you could download some mods for the magical characters, like the Witches and Warlocks mod (if you haven't already) and the EV mod from Sacrificial (depending on how much gore you want in your story, lol).

    I'm tossing up between a Halfling Bard (Lore), a Water Genasi Druid (Land-Coast), or a Light Domain Cleric (unknown race at the moment, maybe Half-Elf)...

    Also, the Fantasy Tag under sssvitlans on tumblr is a good spot to grab some Fantasy based cc. The Harry Potter mod-pack one, I believe even has a board game included in that could work?

    Do I have to give my character skills (in TS4)? If so, at which level? I'd imagine him to have a level or two in the Fitness and Charisma skills for example. I've never used Discord before - do I have to be online at the same time as the other players? Because timezones could be an issue for me.

    If you want to jump on a voice chat you have to be online at the same time as someone. But it has several text channels so that you don't have to. :)

    You don't have to give skills if you don't want to.

    I should get the hp mod at the very least! :O I'm not sure how much I'm actually going to show the other fantasy characters in story but I feel like sometimes would be fun. And nope. I pretty much have mcc and a couple UI mods, and some cc from my secret santa. :) That's it xD

    Knight looks like a fun class. I just looked it up cause I haven't played that one before. I'm going to say that yes your mount is allowed already as well. :D so you get to pick that.

    And goodness I somehow missed some posts earlier! Sorry about that. The knight stats are here.

    Added the knight source book to discord just in case. :)

    Water genasi druid would be very curious. And I feel like get along really well with the Tortle Monk xD since they would both speak aquan.

    There is also a Cavalier subclass for Fighter in Xanathar's Guide to Everything if you want to check that out.

    Thank you for the reply. I was scared I'm one of the spammers you wanted to avoid, lol. I'll submit my Sims later today, if my Internet allows it.
