I guess I am not exactly 'old' but I do have over 6 years DMind experience for dnd 3.0/3.5. I have only ever used a virtual tabletop client once and it was a bad experience as a player. Basically I am looking to start a new campaign in the Forgotten Realms and am looking for no less than 3 and hopefully no more than 5.

About Myself:
I have DMed for a long time but recent time as a player under an amazing DM has shown me I have a lot to learn. I think I do pretty well though. I also know what it is like to be a player and have a good idea what player's are looking for in a game.

About the Campaign:
Sadly I am still lacking a lot in creating my own adventures, though I have been known to come up with on-the-fly adventures that are pretty good, so I will be using a pre-bought campaign called Cormyr, The Tearing of the Weave. If you have a problem with DMs using pre-boughts or you have already played through this before, then this is not the game for you. I would like to note though that I use the book mostly as a reference and I still use a lot of character developement so that the players feel like it is an actual world with real people and personalities. I don't feel any obligation to following the campaign verbatum and very frequently change it for the campaign. I hope to start at level 1 and build the characters into the adventure rather than starting out at level 4. My preferred playing style is not battle specific or rp specific and not even a little of both but A LOT of both. I like random encounters and I love people gettng so much in character that they use the voice of their race while taking. Which brings up anotherpoint, I will be utilizing a chat system that allows everyone to comunicate through mics to speed up gameplay and add more realism. We will probably be using Ventrillo, but that will be determined later. I am accepting all levels of experience and have no problem giving a little extra help to anyone who needs it, as I have a throughough knowledge of 3.5 rules and changes from 3.0. I will be asking a lot of questions to prespective players to make sure you are right for my game. As I have said, I m new to Battlegrounds so the beginning might seem a little slow while I get used to the client, but I will try to familiarize myself before we actually start playing. I don't have a date set when I will start, it may take a few weeks or longer to get the players ready and such, so bear with me. Feel free to email me at or to repost here, though email will be your best bet.

Thank you all and I hope to talk to you soon.

Hi ;-)
Yeah, I don't like pre-made campaigns personally, but at least you're honest. :P
