DM for Hire will be sending out these, 'Dungeon Challenges', that will be open to all players from all groups. Not part of a group? No problem. This option is also perfect for people who want to try the services of DM for Hire, but don't have a group formed yet. Here's how it works:At the beginning of each month, the Dungeon Challenge will be issued. Occasionally, a second Dungeon Challenge may be issued in one particular month. The challenge(s) will be based on 5e rules. Experienced 5e players can make up their own characters, (based on the 5e rules), which must be reviewed and approved before being allowed into play. You must follow the, 'Ability Score Point Cost', rules in making your character up, and the character must be the level indicated to you by the Dungeon Master. Any characters generated by cheating will not be admissible for the Dungeon Challenge. Experienced and Non-experienced players can also select from available pre-generated characters, or they may make arrangements with the Dungeon Master for a custom designed character. Those playing remotely will have to submit a pdf or pictures of their character sheet for review before the game. You may not use an character from an existing DM for Hire 5e group unless that character is in-between adventures. You may not use an existing character from a group outside of DM for Hire groups. Characters being brought in from groups must be characters that are in the same world setting as the Challenge. For remote players who are not part of any DM for Hire groups, you will just have to create a character, (or have me do it for you), at a level indicated for each Dungeon Challenge.The Dungeon Challenges used to be offered as basic level challenges (levels 1-3), however since we've been doing these, many regulars have advanced past that point, and so now DM for Hire also offers higher level challenges. Players can make up characters at a level appropriate for those adventurers, or use their existing Dungeon Challenge characters if they are of sufficient level. Each player may use the same character they played with at a previous challenge, (provided that the character survived), complete with all equipment they had before, including any treasure or magic they may have picked up along the way. Higher level challenges will occur over time as the players characters continue rise in levels.
Each Dungeon Challenge set will be a special design that, along with the creepy sound effects, is sure to totally enhance game play. For some examples of game sets, see the pictures below.
Dungeon Challenges are serious business for players. Your character very well may die, so be advised that if you bring a 5e character from an existing DM for Hire 5e group, and your character dies, you will have to make up a new character for your regular group play. However, for those that survive the Dungeon Challenge, the rewards are worth it!Entrance into the Dungeon Challenge is on a first come first served basis. Each challenge will be open to a party of a maximum number of players, depending on the Challenge. For the next while these games will all be done remotely using ZOOM, however once the covid-19 crisis is over, this service will continue to operate both live and remotely. Some games will have a 6 player cap, and some may have a 9 player or more cap. To reserve your spot, the fee of $25 must be either be sent by interac e-transfer, paypal, or paid in person to secure your spot in the 'party'. This payment is non-refundable and not useable for different events if you suddenly can't make it, so make sure that you can commit to the date before you sign up. If you are purchasing a spot to play remotely in the Dungeon Challenge using interac e-transfer or Paypal, please email me first at email@example.com for payment details.
Since Dungeon Challenges will be offered remotely now, I will be presenting a main game date for each challenge, but, if you have a group that would like to play the Dungeon Challenge together, just your group, I can be booked anytime of the month to re-run that Dungeon Challenge for your group.
