Starting the day after tomorrow at 10 p.m., I shall be livestreaming an AD&D DragonLance campaign beginning with DL 1: Dragons of Despair. In addition to the traditional goals of such a campaign (such as having fun), I shall be making and inviting comparison between it and the works of Tolkien as well as noting some of the many influences which DL has had on modern fantasy in general. In this endeavour I apparently have the blessing of Ms. Weis herself (http://www.dragonlanceforums.com/sho...r-you!/page301)
I post here for two reasons:
1. I still have room for a few more players. The campaign thusfar has two original characters (a Thief who may become an Acrobat and a Barbarian from an original tribe of the Plains of Dust, as Unearthed Arcana rules are also being used) and a player for Sturm Brightblade. Additional original characters are acceptable, though I would prefer it if new players chose to play one of the remaining Heroes of the Lance (ie. Tanis, Tasslehoff, Caramon, Flint, or Raistlin (Goldmoon is also a PC, but isn't playable at the onset of the adventure). You may contact me via Skype (my name is princesshart4christ) or simply play via comments in the Twitch chat.
2. In tribute to Margaret Weis (whose favourite fantasy work is The Lord of the Rings if I am not misinformed) and to those Sisters of the Order with which I am affiliated who are huge Rings fans, I am endeavouring to season the campaign with a bit of Tolkienesque flavour, and am curious as to whether anyone here has any suggestions as to how I might approach this. I have some ideas of my own, but would like to read your input.
In any case, you shall find me streaming on Tuesdays and Thursdays at https://www.twitch.tv/maidenpaladin with lots of miniatures.
