I just recently found out about The Baron's Favor and really liked it. I am definitely going to use it in my campaign, we play RC D&D. Can't wait to see the next part of the adventure.

Would love to play, but know little to nothing about 5E. I'd need help getting a character put together. I'd love to play and elven rogue.

Not entirely sure which system I'll use just yet. Votes are still coming in.

If you've got a preference I haven't listed, give it a shout out

D&D 3E or Pathfinder, preferably the latter.

If you are playtesting your adventure with a view of fine tuning it before publication in the next future, then it has to be 5e.

I'd be interested, would prefer BECMI, but 5e would be ok.

So far, it appears that the responses reflect the opposite of the poll itself..... Just a reminder: I accidentally reset the poll by adding an option, so if you voted early when this thread went up, please re-check your vote. :oops:

It also looks like I've got five tentative seats filled.

Six seats would be comfortable, eight is about the most I think I can handle in the play-by-post format....

Have you considered allowing characters from multiple editions? The trickiest bit seems to be how to handle XP/Levelling up, but I think that especially for a PbP it could be done. I would understand if you feel it is too much work though.

Actually, I was thinking of doing this "BYOS" -- Bring Your Own System. Play what you're comfortable with, we can tailor the mechanics on the fly (Didn't we talk about this through Messenger/Faceborg a while back?).

I am going to be using individual initiative in BECMI anyway, which isn't that much different than 3e-5e initiative....

Hum... I wanted to participate in a 5e game not an experiment. There is too much difference between BECMI and 5e to make this a viable. Count me out. Sorry.

Thus far, all but one of the posted responses have been for 5e, (or 5e in-a-pinch), so it's looking highly likely that will be the system I go with. As noted in the poll options, it will lean heavily in favor of the free Basic ruleset.

I see. The poll is confusing. It sending the message that more people want to play BECMI. I don't mind playing with 5e basic rules.

Shotgun on the wizard! I'll be a neutral good high elf wizard called Erevan Naïlo. ;)

I'm not seeing much post input from those voting BECMI...

And as to your request for the wizard... well, it's oddly specific ;) I was planning on a "Thread-Zero" to hash a lot of this out, but I'll definitely pencil you in for the spot :D

I've never played 5e. Willing to learn. I've never played anything beyond 2e. I've played mostly Becmi with some 1e and 2e. How do I get the free rules for 5e?

The link about two or three posts up-thread will take you to the splash screen at WotC’s D&D website.
