D&D Encounters ONLINE

Are you living outside of North America with no gaming group? Does your local hobby shop not support D&D Encounters? Are you never able to make it out on Wednesday nights at 6pm?

I've got a solution for you: (Click on the image for Full View)
All the info is in that poster image. If you can't access it, here's the gist of it:

I'm going to be hosting this season of D&D Encounters online through Google+ hangout. The games will be a part of the Constantcon schedule which can be viewed here (*NOTE: times are currently not available).

I'll be hosting each encounter multiple times in multiple time zones. If you live in various parts of Asia and Europe, there will most likely be a time slot that will work for you. I'm going to try and be as flexible as possible, and will take many people's schedules into account.

When is it?

Once I have enough players on board for multiple sessions, I'll work out a series of set game times. These game times will be available here on my blog, as well as on the Constantcon blog calender. I'm planning on starting up the first session some time in the middle of March.

What do I need to play?

First, you'll need a Google+ account. They're free and pretty easy to set up.

Second, you'll need a webcam and microphone. Google+ hangouts is an audio/video service. In a pinch, just a microphone will work, but it's recommended that you have both video and audio at your disposal.

Third, you'll need a D&D character who is level one. While I'm not usually picky about race, class, etc, it's recommended that you stick to what WotC suggests you use for D&D Encounters here. If you don't have the ability to make a character you can use one of the many pregens that others and myself have produced here, here, and here.

No prior experience with D&D is required. D&D Encounters is a great way to play the game for the first time.

How can I sign up?

If you're interested in playing, you'll need all of the things listed above.

Send an email to dndencountersonline@gmail.com. The subject line must read "Want to play D&D Encounters Online". If you do not send an email to dndencountersonline@gmail.com, you won't be eligible to play. You must also include the following in the body of your email:

-Name
-Google+ account contact (name, email, etc)
-Brief description of character you want to play (class, race, one-two sentences of backstory, etc. Nothing major)
-Your availability (ex: Wednesday 6pm-1am PST, Saturday 8pm-12am EST)

You must include your time zone in your availability, or I won't be able to schedule everyone properly.


Once there's enough interest generated in the game, I'll release a schedule for gaming sessions that works for the majority of the players.

Updates can be found right here on this blog.
