This is a proposal to run a collaborative, Bangalore-wide world building campaign made out of one-shots that will be played over a period of time. We discussed this during the recent Tabletop Meetup on the 7th.

One reason for this is that pregens would be created to allow for player flavour without the deep dive that is mechanics. Players would pick a race and a class before the oneshot occurred and reach the table ready for play. This is to ease people into playing TTRPGs without smashing them into mechanics, as well as to begin games quickly.

Second, the game is definitely fantasy centric. While D&D and Pathfinder are similar, they have wildly different class mechanics that would require extensive tooling to balance and so we start with 5E only. A system that does sci-fi or superheroes would be something that we could discuss at a later stage. Having uniformity in the world, while limiting, would be easier to manage to begin with.

As of now, please stick to adventuring on the prime material realm. Adventures to Avernus, the Underdark and other places is something we would need to see how we can incorporate.
