Kentucky BECMI D&D

Here's how it works...

Get the pdf from Dropbox and make your character. Roll 4d6, drop the lowest, arrange as desired. Or roll 3d6 if you want to be authentic!

Post your character here. I haven’t figured out yet if/how we will be able to play here or if we will need to use the Facebook group or what. Feel free to post as we try to figure it out.

Back in my day...
...everything was better!

Back in my day….everything was better!

Way back when, everything was better. EVERYTHING. Summer wasn’t so hot, winter wasn’t so cold, we had snow days, and winter break, and recess. It was the land of NO RESPONSIBILITIES. Heck, Cheez Whiz and Combos were still considered “food.”

In the spirit of those days gone by, this is going to be a Dungeons and Dragons campaign run using the “Basic” or “Red Box” Dungeons and Dragons rules. Oh sure, we’ll probably tinker with them as we go along, but generally speaking, we’re going to keep to the spirit of things. Thus, your character class choices are: Fighter, Magic-User, Cleric, Thief, Elf, Dwarf, Halfling. Yes. Elf. Not Elven fighter/ranger/half-dragon sorcerer. Just…Elf. We’re going back to the good old days, remember?

So, get your Tab, your Pizza Pockets, and your Trapper Keeper, roll up your character, and let’s play!

p.s. I’m still figuring out how this site/blog/wiki thing works, so details to be determined.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
