The Return is an exploration-focused game using the D&D 5th edition rules. It is designed for players to come and go from session to session depending on their schedules.
1300 years ago, with the Magewars ravaging the world, a group of refugees turned to magic of their own to survive. They opened a portal to a demiplane called Haven and shut the portal behind them, isolating themselves from the chaos and danger of the world. 25 years ago, the artifacts sustaining the demiplane had begun to fail, and the people of Haven reopened the portal to return to the land they had left behind so long ago. With great heroism and great hardship, they managed to carve out a nation for themselves in the wilderness.
That nation, known as Rebirth, is now ready to further explore the harsh world surrounding them. The player characters are prospective adventurers who can earn their adventurer's license and with it, permission to pass the borders of Rebirth into the world outside.
- Players are responsible for scheduling games. Scheduling must be done on the game's mailing list.
- You must tell me sufficiently ahead of time where you are going so that I can prepare.
- One adventure = one session. You must be home by the end of the session or Bad Things will happen to your characters. This rule allows players to easily come and go between sessions.
- This is open "sandbox" world. Dangers are not tailored to your characters and may be too much for you to handle, so be careful. Low level characters are particularly fragile.
- Player characters are natives of Rebirth. New characters start at level 3 and can be created using the Player's Handbook or with the free Basic Rules. See the character creation notes for additional information.
- New players are welcome. There is a practical limit to how many can play in a single session, but if there are many people interested in playing, the campaign easily supports multiple parties exploring different areas, as well as mixing between parties.
