FAQs

BUT I’VE NEVER PLAYED D&D BEFORE, I’M NERVOUS!
You’ll be playing with people just as new as you most likely! Will (your host) and Josh (your DM) are very approachable and friendly, so if you have any questions or concerns don’t be afraid to ask. They’re used to helping out!

HOW DO I STAT MY CHARACTER?

Rolling for Stats is generally how we allocate Stats here at EncounterRoleplay. You’re allowed One Re-Roll of a Stat though!

What’s the Setting? “West Marches” Meets Ongoing Campaign
These sessions take as their starting point the “West Marches” style of sessions popularized by Ben Robbins back in 2007 – independent one-shots that feature a rotating cast and flexible story. That said, we try to incorporate as much of a traditional campaign feel to the ongoing and dynamic world. This gives us the freedom to bring in way more players, while letting everyone feel like they’re part of a bigger story! Check out the story so far in our ongoing West Marches world!

Season One: West Marches: The Siege of Murkglow

Season Two: West Marches: The Beasts of Umber

Season Three: West Marches: The Woes of Knaerwood 

Season Four: West Marches: The Remnants of Calita

Season Five: West Marches: The Carnage at Cainfield

Season Six: West Marches: The Laws of Limbo

Season Seven: West Marches: The Tales of Turnpike

Season Eight: West Marches: Tricks of the Trade

HOW LONG UNTIL I GET IN A GAME?
Depending on how many people are signed up, it can take as long as 2-3 weeks to get into the game. That being said, sometimes it can be much quicker! We want everyone to have a chance to play D&D.

SO CAN I ONLY PLAY ONE GAME?
No! You can come back on multiple weeks if you so desire, but bear in mind that we’re always trying to get new players in, and so spaces aren’t too easy to come by. Make sure that you message Will about this; he’s a busy man and you can’t rely on him to reach out to you. Be proactive!

CAN I HOMEBREW MY CHARACTER’S RACE/CLASS/BACKGROUND
Unfortunately, since we have well over 100 players already rotating into these game it’s already difficult enough to keep track of characters and party balance. So we restrict characters to only content published by WotC. As a courtesy, please let us know if you are using a race or class outside of the Player’s Handbook (such as Volo’s Guide to Monsters or Sword Coast Adventure Guide).
