Dungeon Master Benoit guides the dungeoneers into a new era of FTDM online play!
Recruitment is now officially open for Live Online Match 01! The match will run 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST, Sunday July 29th, with a goal of having all teams assembled by Friday, July 27.
Once you have signed up, you will be set up in a team of the Dungeon Master's devising. If you have friends you would like on your team, be sure to mention it and accommodations will be made. Players not currently participating in the PbP and new players will be given preferential placement. Once the roster has been filled, each team will have 2 short days to discuss strategies and tactics among themselves.
This will be a "Novice" match and will not be timed - like PbP, it will last 6 rounds. This will give players and DM alike the chance to familiarize themselves with the program without the pressure of the clock. A second match will run on the same map, time permitting. (Future "Expert" matches will be run as timed events, and will be for dungeoneers who have become familiar with the MapTool program.)
The match will use MapTool in tandem with either Skype or a Google+ hangout. Dungeoneers will be expected to come with their own token. Further information on these details will be emailed to the dungeoneers closer to the event.
This inaugural live online match will take place on the Hellstrider E9M1: Mutiny Aboard the Hellstrider.
Welcome to the dark recesses of the Underdark! Deep within the bowels of the earth, the Vault of the Spider Queen houses the infamous artifact, the Egg of Lolth. It's ebon surface pulses with the abyssal energies of the Demon Queen of Spiders, corrupting the minds of anyone foolish enough to draw near. Who among you is bold enough to seize this powerful relic? More importantly, who has the strength to hold onto the fragile ovum of power?
Good hunting, dungeoneers!
