Choose a D&D region to be "Isekaied"

SorcererV1ct0rSorcererV1ct0r Member Posts: 1,877
As a mid level char( lv 10 char), nor lv 1 guy that barely can hold a weapon, nor a demigod. I can't list every location. I know that a lot of options are missing and put Shadowfell and Fey world in the same place is silly but i can only list 10 options.

    You mean getting run over by a truck, having your soul kidnapped into a different world and then being forced to reincarnate as a random critter of said poll location?

    None of the D&D settings really do it for me. But let's see... As a whole Eberron gets my vote for the steampunk-ish high fantasy flair. Not as interesting as either Starfinder or Pathfinder, mind you. But I would choose that setting over things like the Forgotten Realms any day of the week. That, and Dark Sun's planet is waaay too hot for my wintery taste.

    It seems like you'd pretty much immediately die in a lot of them. Is this what setting would the character like or what setting you find cool?

    I'd probably call it getting John Cartered or even Connecticut Yankeed.

    NOt exactly hit by a truck... Can be any way of being isekaied

    As ive' said "As a mid level char( lv 10 char)"

    So you get tier 5 spells(sorcerer) or big hit points(barb)

    But is it what the character would like or what you think is cool as the player running the character?

    Some of those, like an elemental plane, Hells or even Athas could pretty much result in near immediate death without proper protections. Like if you're a warrior and get dumped into the fire plane, you're kind of screwed. Even a 10th level Cleric or Wizard wouldn't last for very long there. A world like Dark Sun, where there are tons of people with what the character would think of as superhuman attributes and psionics would probably be boned.

    If you're talking about what the character would like, it would probably the safest out of all those environments, which I guess would probably be the Sword Coast or Celestial realms. The Celestial realms are probably boring, though, but you could probably get help to get home most easily there.

    The celestial realms would probably expel you if you are not of his alignment. As for the elemental planes, a lv 10 adventures CAN live in city of embers. Or on city of thousand pearls. Mainly if the guy is a caster or a warlock. A warlock with a water elemental patron gain water breathing. I limited to lv 10 because sorcerers with their pocket dimension and other spells would allow then to easily travel to other realms...

    But is the poll question where you the player want to go or where the character wants to go?

    Sure, some very specialized characters can survive in some of the specific environments or maybe in a very small area of the plane, but most of the plane of fire is going to kill them. More HPs just means you burn longer before you die. Nothing about the Hells seems like something anybody would choose to go to. Again, like you say, maybe a warlock with the right patron, but the vast majority of characters probably couldn't hack it even at level 10.

    One of the common Isekai tropes is that you're not thrust into the new world without some mitigating factor. If you got sent to Athas, you'd show up as a native of Athas. If you wound up in the Sword Coast, you'd have your class training embedded in your memory somehow. If you wound up in the world of Dungeon Keeper, you'd be able to replicate tech you're already familiar with using a Dungeon Heart.

    Of course there's also the Isekai trope of being reincarnated as a slime, spider, goblin or similar low tier monster. Making the mortality rate of said location go through the roof. Humans and the other base races? Way too overpowered for them reincarnator lot. Being a AD&D kobold without the dragonblooded nonsense suits them just fine. :p

    Yep. But i an assuming that you can be anything that you want. You are becoming a lv 10 char that can be anything, as a player, you are becoming your character and living in other world. No limitation except lv 10. From a CE dread necromancer on 3.5e to a 5e LG paladin. A 5e warlock with lurker patron can easily survive on Plane of Water. A 3.5e warlock can use fly at will(invocation) and teleport at will, so he can survive even in the plane of air. Sorcerers

    I limited to lv 10 because pocket planes, wings for draconic sorcerers, lich template for dread necromancers and other high level abilities can make even surviving in Pandemonium possible.

    edit : You don't need to be a human either.

    OK, I think I get what you're saying, you yourself are reincarnated into a character in the setting? Not some character from one of the the other settings. I'd still go for somewhere relatively safe like The Sword Coast or Celestia. Getting dumped into Hell, Athas or Ravenloft would not be pleasant. Athas to me is by far the most awesome of those settings, but I hate hot weather and it's a world where even the spiders in your crappy apartment could have psionic powers.

    I hate hot weather too. Celestia/Helisium/Ysgard can kick me out(not sure if i would be accepted), Sword Coast has too much dumb hierarchy, lords, kings, Frozenfar is probably the place where i would have most freedom and no hot weather. NO dumb bureaucrats trying to regulate my use of magic and no hot weather. That is perfect. When a guy tried to force a union upon frozenfar, all clans put their differences aside to kill the tyrant. For those who din't played IWD, that is the premise.

    I would be able to do whatever i want, as longs i an not prejudicing anyone, if i wanna have undead servants or constructs to hunt and do agrarian work while i sell this and spend all day practicing with my magic, no zealot lawful good paladin will try to be in my way. And the worst thing that can happen is my death. On Sword Coast, you can become a Slave of Thay. Any noble that doesn't like you can make your life a living hell.

    On elemental planes too. Become a Efreet or a Dao's slave would be far worst than die.

    Unless they give me anime-isekai cheat-mode-powers, a godslayer weapon, an harem of fine hunks and a powerful group of unlikely heroes that allow me to vanquish him using the power of friendship... I think I will end up joining the forces of the darkness, but not by choice.

    Well, as a 10th level character, I'd probably choose Icewind Dale. I like the cold, and the dark winters wouldn't bother me much. I'd probably go with Diviner and use my skills to earn a comfortable living while researching new divination spells . Even the superstitious barbarians probably wouldn't kill me outright after word gets around about my powers. I'd only have to worry about invasions from the powerful evil monsters that reside in the frozen wastelands, but in that case I could easily serve as an advisor to the leaders of the defense with my forecasting and scrying powers.

    Wow, I could totally see myself being that character now that I think about it! B)

    I actually voted for Celestia, assuming that I keep my memories, intellect and alignment. I pretty consistently fall into LG ideals, and I think that being plonked into a celestial plane and given the opportunity to train up in a safe place before venturing out to do Good elsewhere sounds like the perfect deal. :)

    I thought about Celestia but I'm far too chaotic to be welcomed there. I'd rather be somewhere where you do-gooders can protect me while I pretend chaos is the bomb!

    The Heroic Domains of Ysgard await you. ;) (Of course, depending on your preferences, the idea of essentially living out a Counter-strike match for all eternity, or making endless forays into Jotunheim and Svartalheim to battle epic-level Frost and Fire Giants may not be your ideal of a CG heaven. ;) )

    Correct me if i an wrong, but you can leave, right?

    Well, assuming you were still alive, yes, you'd be free to leave the Celestial planes whenever you wish. If you were a petitioner or an outsider though, I believe you cannot leave your Outer Plane unless you are summoned to another plane or you travel through a pre-existing gate (which are usually carefully guarded).

    In any case, for petitioners, their Outer Plane is usually their precise idea of paradise (or rather, how they think the world SHOULD be run) and they usually do not WANT to leave.

    Athas because it'd make the best story in my mind. One moment you're living your life and then BAM! you're on a savage dying earth with psionics, sorcerer-kings, survival of the fittest, and dog-eat-dog politics.

    Do you know thta you have like 80% chances of end up as a slave? A lv 10 guy is weak for Dark Sun standards.

    Dark Sun: Shattered Lands starts your party out as level 1 slaves. Isn't it the DM's job to balance the fights for the party (still a chance to fail of course) and provide interesting ways out of sticky situations? If you don't think it's a good idea, why wasn't something else there in the poll?
