Okay, I'll show you the basic premise what I had in mind and let you tell your opinions about it before starting:

Strange Holes/Gates appear across Westeros, leading to other plane(s), Faerun, Eberron and/or some original world. The story could be about the confusion of the first days of the reveal(set at the end of Robert's rebellion), or years later when things have normalized and many adventurers have tied themselves to the Westerosi Houses, and politics have turned interplanar(start of canon or maybe the War of the Five Kings).

My candidate for the original world, where the holes lead to is Dungeon, a seemingly endless subterranean world full of strange lands called Gates, each of which has its own "theme" (Bridgegate is a land full of rivers, where Trolls control a bridge network, Chivalrygate is something straight out of Arthurian mythos, Wintergate is a land of endless ice and snow, and so on.).

Slightly partial to the 'years later' angle. But I like both ideas. :)

What starting level are you thinking for PCs?

I'm not the most familair of Game of Thrones when compared to Eberron and especially Faerun. I played, read and watched most contents related to Faerun. But this could perhaps play well with a character from Faerun who is introduced to Westeros. But I would most likely will have some questions on how things are and work in Westeros, in and out of character. If you have any links that you think would be great source of information that relates to this campaign, that would be helpful and greatly appreciated.

The original world idea does sound fun since unlike the other pre existing settings, these worlds sound like a nice fun treat to be surprised and venture in.

But again, I just feel concern that my lack of knowledge with Game of Thrones may hinder progress of the campaign as I would have to spend time learning about it while being busy with irl work.

Another question I would like to add is how should we determine our ability scores?

I haven't thought any specific level. I'll ask if you have any wishes before deciding anything. But I think something less than 10 would be good.

Speaking of levels, one possible idea I had in mind was that experience can only be gained in dungeon or wherever the holes lead to, because Planetos doesn't have enough magic. But whether or not we use it is up to you.

Speaking of levels, would you like to use actual experience or do I level you up periodically in appropriate situations.

@Expolar

I myself would prefer point buy, but if you folks prefer rolling, that's fine too.

Lack of knowledge won't be a problem. Your character can be someone who is new to Westeros, who arrives there for one reason or another (maybe to look for fame and fortune, escape from trouble or whatever)

Basic information can be found from this link.

I have also a thread where I've been building this setting myself (I'd be running this game partly to get rid of writer's block). Do you have an account at AlternateHistory.com?

But even if you don't, I can tell you this setting won't follow the story to the letter, at least if we go by "years have passed". Details I'll reveal later. And if we go by the "start of it all", you'd have basically ended up in Planetos by accident, so not knowing the setting shouldn't be too much of a disadvantage.

I too find myself more interested in either doing something within Faerun (much more familiar with it) or original world.

Specificaly, I like the holes that leads into different types of worlds, all in a dungeony feel to it.

Also, We will be working with 5e?

5E, yes. Though other editions are used for inspiration. And maybe 3rd party

By the way, shall I describe any details of the Dungeon or how different Planetos looks like in "Years have passed" scenario? I mean, I will when I post the RP and these scenarios are chosen, but would you like to read about them here and now?

If you want a second or third "table", I'd be willing to DM 5e. Currently, I'm DMing a weekly group of four for Ghosts of Saltmarsh IRL (their party is only level 2 though). As long as I have whatever module it is on DNDBeyond (I have the DM tier subscription), I can DM it.

I'm not sure if there's going to be extra tables as of yet, but thanks for the offer, nonetheless.

I am actually interested in the Ghosts of Saltmarsh module. I read a bit of D&D UA about sailing and sea, which really got me excited to hear that they would actually make a module. Not sure if they would put the UA info into this module.

Nonetheless, I'm interested with the module. But I thought it hasn't released yet?

As I haven't played a whole lot of 5th edition, (and what I have played was 1st level), I'd feel better about joining a low level campaign like this. If you start something up, let me know! :)

Ghosts of Saltmarsh it is.

In retrorespect, it seemed more likely, since there's a lot of inexperienced players here.

@Mistiel , when do you think you could start running?

I thought you already had at least 2 DMs? I was thinking I'd just run whatever scenario the primary DM ran, but for another table, with different PCs. Ghosts of Saltmarsh is like the newest of the new; I only have it because I pre-ordered. It's quite challenging for newbies.

I make no guarantees for either my activity or a start date. I have a preliminary appointment to have my wisdom teeth removed next Monday, not knowing when the date of the actual removal will be.

It's a little weird, actually.

There's a bunch of folks here who know how to DM, but there was no real desicion who would do it, and there aren't so many players that an extra DM would be needed. I simply stepped forward with my campaign, though I was ready to use another one if players wanted, in this case Ghosts of Saltmarsh.

Although, if I'm still the DM, I have to tell ya that I have no idea where you can find Ghosts of Saltmarsh.

I do have some other ready-made campaign books though, like Tyranny of Dragons and Elemental Evil...
