How's everyone's dnd going?
I'm about 5 sessions in with my new group. Enjoying it beginning to get to grips with the mechanics and there is a reasonable group dynamic. We're a couple of players short meaning if someone is missing it's a bit limiting but can't complain too much. We're playing 5e using old Basic Set Adventures in the Mystara setting. Which reminds of my old red and blue box days as a kid. Which I still have stored away :D

I've still got lots of D&D going on each week, approx 3 games a week with the occasional gap here and there.

On the weekends I'm still DMing for two groups of friends that I met through D&D Beyond around 2020 with our homebrew world.
One of the groups is nearing the end of their current campaign so I've been starting to redesign for the next set of stories. The other group is probably just beyond the midway point of their campaign.

Also got the midweek game with some of the gang from here on the forums that's been playing with rotating DMs since around 2017.
We're just nearing the end of Dungeon of the Mad Mage, so we'll probably be looking at switching DM for the next campaign soon. I think a couple of us were looking at the either doing the newer Phandelver book or the Avernus book for the next campaign... I've also been toying with planning some kind of custom 'Faerun in Turmoil' plot as we've failed to stop the bad guys a couple of times, so we could have a bit of fun around cleaning up the mess caused the release of Tiamat and others.

Yeah it kind of imploded while I was on holiday! It was destined to end in hindsight due to player-player clashes. And DM-player clashes. Player player wasn't too bad. But the DM bit was a bit more... This is done.
At one point the DM post session told 2 of us he wasn't very happy with us doing something. But it was in character, it wasn't evil at all. It wasn't party damaging. We then got railroaded.
Felt like dm had a fixed idea of how he wanted the campaign to go. But instead of guiding it that way.. It was railroaded.
So for both dm and player mismatches the DM called it off. Which I think was the right call.

New campaign, same character for me, new people.
Looks like 6 players and 1 dm.

We have a
Warlock/dragonborn
Druid/half-elf
Ranger/kobold
Paladin/rock gnome
Fighter/human (not sure how keen this person is)
Me: bard/fairy

Session 0 happened last week. Session 1 is next week. Hope it lasts longer!

Demiplane being acquired by Roll20 is an interestering development that I don't think anyone saw coming.
I'm curious to see what the future holds for their platforms... at the moment it sounds like they're remaining as individual entities with the intention to link them together through an API.

It was a nice surprise to see that some publishers had given permission for copies of their content to be shared between platforms for users at no extra cost.

Yep i saw that the other day, an was going to post it but got side tracked. seems like a good move, possibly to compete with D&D Beyond. expand the player base also.

413x will reply a bit later​

Another session in our little DnD group, sadly on 3 + GM again but the one-shot was quite scaleable and still proved a challenge. We finished it without combat for the finale which was good. We're looking to recruit a few more for the next session which is a reworked Basic DnD Module updated for 5e. I'm hoping we haven't lost some of our earlier members permanently as we had a good rapport with them. Still fun and at once a fortnight not too demanding.
