Expo 2018 D&D Dungeon Crawl

Starting the Hype Train early for this event by posting an FAQ

What is a Dungeon Crawl? - You're a bad ass character in an Action/Adventure/Fantasy novel/movie that you get to write with your friends at a table. You kick down doors, stab bad guys and take their stuff. That is as deep as the story gets.

Can I play? - Sure, I guess.

Can I play if I've never played D&D before? - YES! New players are the best players. I'll teach you while we play.

Do I have to make a character? - Nope, Ill make all the characters ahead of time. But if you want to create a 1st level 5th ed character by all means.

Can I play a [Dwarf, Elf, Rogue, Wizard, Jedi, Talking Dog, Space Goat,...] - Yes. D&D Dungeon Crawls are silly fun. With a bit of time I can make most character ideas work (I am sure you all can think of things that just won't work). Let me know your character idea a week before to prepare it for you if you want something special.

Do I have to talk in 3rd person / a funny character voice? - No, but I will be doing voices for the bad guys. Best not to hold any pretenses that this isn't a kids game being enjoyed by adults, and just lean into the madness.

What happens if my character dies? - Typical Dungeon Crawl style, I rez your character and the other players get to give your character a curse you have to act out during the rest of the game.

What if @primesuspect plays and I have to stab him because his character is so annoying?- It has happened to us all.

When is this Crawl happening? - I believe @Linc said 10am Thursday. Knowing this crowd, I will be surprised if anyone is awake by then, but if you can get your butt to the table that early I promise to make it fun.

    I am in and I would like to play this character. Stats are from standard point buy; can do equipment as well if you have a starting gold budget. I will have a mini and dice.

    I want to be in on this, new to D&D in general, but am familiar with the ideas.

    I am interested. Not sure I'll have enough liquid encouragement to be silly, but I'll give it a shot.

    Edit: one premade character, please.

    I have Zero D&D experience. My daughter only has half that. I'm making her participate in this. I want us to be a pair of some sort. If you have something fun in mind, would love a surprise.

    Stoked for this.

    @BobbyDigi So I think a good father-daughter character is a either a Ranger and its pet or a Wizard and its familiar :) Obviously its up to you which is which. Ill also say that it doesn't have to be canon or anything, so if your daughter has a favorite TV show or something, use that to create your character.

  • primesuspectprimesuspect Beepin n' Boopin Detroit, MI Icrontian

    Please, please, please let Arwen be the ranger and Bobbydigi be the pet.

    @BobbyDigi excellent. Do you have an idea of what kind of pet you want to be?

    Related, now that we have a quorum, I can say that I have plenty of dice for the group, but if you want to bring your own by all means.

    I also have a ton of different minis (short for miniatures) which you can use on the game board, though most of them are unpainted. Miniatures are little guys with a 1 inch base that can be stand-ins for you on the game board. Yes, we are going to have a physical board of sorts.

    If you wanted to bring your own mini feel free. For example, if you were a dad and your daughter was going to be a ranger and you wanted to be a pet, if you wanted to bring a small toy animal to represent you on the board (1 inch square base) , you should feel empowered to go full ham.

    I don't know what I expect from this, but Bobby acting like a pig will be one of the highlights of EPIC.

    If I can make it to there on time, I would like to play.

  • ObsidianObsidian Michigan Icrontian

    @Goatmonger and I are in, assuming we wake up in time. We haven't played D&D before but we've been interested in learning for a while. I played Baldur's Gate back in the day so I feel like I should have some clue.

    How is the character creation going to work? You said you're making the characters ahead of time so are we just going to pick from a list of characters you made? Do we need to let you know some idea of what we want before and you figure out how to make it work?

  • sazboomsazboom White Lake MI Member

    @Obsidian yeah, there will be a stack of character sheets you can select from. Just pick one, give it a name, and you are good to go.

    The option to let me know ideas ahead of time is if you want to do something non-traditional. If you are good with your standard Lord of the Rings Dwarf,Elf,Wizard,Halfling,Rogue,Ranger,Fighter,Barbarian,Cleric, array of trope characters, then you don't need to send me anything as I got ya covered.

    Well... he kind of turned into an evil DigiPiggy, but he rescued his companions anyway, so cosmically, I guess things are about square.
