“A whole summer of adventure awaits!” the poster said. “Camp Bluegrass, the summer camp where the water’s blue and the grass is too!” Your parents were fooled. Their friends were fooled. But you weren’t. An entire summer with only other kids and disinterested camp counselors for company sounds like the worst way to spend three months. But you were sent anyway, against all your complaints and concerns, never having gone there themselves.

The reality is that Camp Bluegrass is barely one step up from a juvenile prison. Despite being a summer camp, Bluegrass is open year-round due to a problem it had its’ first year, and in fact continues to have. Some parents decided they were better off without their children, and “forgot” to come pick them up. Since they couldn’t just release the kids onto the street or into the wild, the camp was forced to stay open, eventually receiving official grant money from the government in order to afford to house and feed the hundred-some children and staff.

After word got out, the reputation of Camp Bluegrass being a place to drop off your children for a year or two unfortunately spread. Some kids are there for only the three months of summer, but the camp has a permanent population; mostly the adult counselors, but some of the abandoned children stay long enough to be hired as staff. The result is barely organized, with no one person truly being in charge, but the camp has managed to provide two meals a day plus snacks and decent if not comfortable shelter for all of the children attending for more than a decade now.

There are even the beginnings of a rudimentary civilization showing up. Some of the attendees are deacons of major or minor gods, which allows for mostly accurate worship services to be performed. One year, some of the kids made a forge, so now there’s a blacksmithing service for the pony stables which can also make weapons and armor when none of the counselors are watching. A couple of the kids can even enchant them. A tiefling boy named Jen’ifer has tried to make a ruling children’s counsel of sorts with his cohorts, but since they’re afraid of others older or stronger than them, they have little real authority even when the adult counselors aren’t paying attention.

So, Camp Bluegrass actually is a place of adventure, friendship, and character-building. But it’s not nearly as controlled or positive as they would have you believe. Will you make enough friends to brave the nearby cave system, which may or may not have a dragon inside? Can you survive the all the drama with your dignity intact? All this and more are the challenges waiting for you at Camp Bluegrass.


This will be a low-level, small-scale D&D 4e game focusing on more personal conflicts than murderhobo quests and world-ending conspiracies. You are a teenager (or other-species equivalent to a human teenager) trying to survive the social challenges of a summer camp you might be attending for years. There will still be combat, there will still be adventuring, but it will all be conducted at the summer camp from hell.

Character creation:
Start at level 1. Looking for 3-4 players. For humans, you should be age 14-16, and non-humans should be within the equivalent ages for their species. You can use any official class/race you want (as long as you can tell me where it appears in official materials), but we will not be factoring in feat taxes or inherent bonuses to start with. You can only start with mundane equipment No magic items. Because we will be staying at low levels for a while, you will be allowed to swap out your Encounter powers during short rests and Daily powers during long rests. I may also allow use of some powers from higher levels as the game goes on.

This will be a Play-by-Post game, so don't worry so much about getting your action just right. If two characters want to have a longer conversation, go ahead and have it in IM and post the result in the thread. Let us know if you won't be able to post for a few days.

RECRUITMENT CLOSED

This'll be a good game to learn it, we won't be getting into the super heavy combat and I have several years experience introducing new players to the game.

e: Feel free to join the Discord and ask for help building a character.

Might be interested! Haven't played 4E yet so I'll be catching up.

One of the players dropped out, so if you're still willing to have a go I'm holding that slot open for you.
