Mr B.
Please put me down for a place in your game. I'll roll up a character based on the link you've posted. Any idea which character class you are missing? I'd prefer playing something that relies more on brain power than brawn but will adapt to suit the party dynamic.
Cheers

Hi Colin,

Not sure what people are playing yet - though Mark did intimate a Barbarian. Lewis maybe playing a Rogue (but not sure - I could have imagined that). So pretty much anything you like.

Character creation can be on the night.

I was steered to ROGUE, on the grounds that it should be the easiest class to play, and I ain't played 5e before.

I want to play in this for two reasons, (1) it sounds like fun, and (2) I want to see 5e in action before making any decisions on Corwyn Phase 3.

Playing: Telford: Dark Heresy.
Running: Cannock: Legends of Corwyn/D&D, Telford: Forgotten Realms: Heroes of Faerûn/D&D.
Prepping: Chill (modern day horror) Tales From The Loop (1980s sci-fi/horror)

Hi Lewis,

Thats right - you asked which is the easiest to play and I suggested Rogue!!! To be honest, any class is easy to play in 5E and will not pose any problem to an experienced RPG'er.

I will bring some pre-gen 1st level characters for the game for anybody who does not want to create a character on the night, but I suspect we will end up doing character generation in the first session so the party should be able to decide amongst themselves what they would like to play.

Not sure who Bo and Rob are, I'll need to get their contact details. In my game we also have Josh, Beth and Little Mike. We have one more spot left.

Amended the the original post to reflect Josh, Beth and Little Mike - err i am not sure who Bo is and I typed it - LOL. Oh well.

The slots are filling up rapidly - not many spaces available in the published games.

Well, I've got the PHB with me, and I think I bought Edwyn the Sword Coast guide as well, so I'll have a look at that when I re-enter your plane of reality.

I'll play a rogue, either human or Halfling. I'm familiar with Faerun up to around 1375 DR (i.e. 3rd ed). What's the current date - I assume a lot later than that?

So, all the Faerunian deities if I'm picking a patron deity? I assume the rules about patron deities in the Realms still apply (i.e. it's a very bad idea NOT to have one)?

Playing: Telford: Dark Heresy.
Running: Cannock: Legends of Corwyn/D&D, Telford: Forgotten Realms: Heroes of Faerûn/D&D.
Prepping: Chill (modern day horror) Tales From The Loop (1980s sci-fi/horror)

Updated the main post with this information:

Current Year is 1491 DR.

There are 6 Halfling racial deities in the Sword Coasts, and about 60+ others to select from.

It is a good idea to have a god but not essential. I do not recall the rules having any negative impact for not having a god - though I don't see how divine spells would be granted to a none believer.
