I'm an experienced DM with a well-developed and game-tried homebrew campaign, but this is my first foray into PBEM. I'm committed to this project and won't disappear after a handful of sessions.

The campaigned will be loosely based on 5E Dungeons & Dragons. A copy of the rules is not essential. It will be conducted by email only. You will also need a PDF and image viewer on your device. Maps and other images will be poorly hand-drawn. A google drive will be made available for any campaign hand-out material.

I'm looking for 4 or 5 players, no experience necessary. You will be required to complete a 'session 0' questionnaire where players can specify any off-limit topics. Characters will start at level 1 and limited to Players Handbook options (as I don't have other products).

Turns will be a minimum of monthly, but can be quicker turnaround if all players submit earlier.

The game will be free to play, but gratuities most welcome if you believe it is warranted.

I hope to hear from you. Richard
