I once saw (in a Reddit thread that I cannot find) a guy who asked whether the command above was actually useful to which someone replied with an answer along the lines of "You can load an entire server into memory and then update the entire system without interruption". So my questions are, is this possible? Has anyone ever had to do this?
Hello! Sorry if this is a frequent post or if this post breaks any rules (in which case I will remove it) but I am a completely new player to this game, have just finished creating my first character, and would like to know what to expect. As a bit of backstory, a friend of mine came up with the idea of gathering a couple of friends and playing this game together which interested me greatly since I have heard so much talk around the internet of the game. This friend (who is also new to the game) will also act as the DM for our group and today they took me through the process of creating a character (a Drow rogue named Laucian). Since I am fascinated with the idea of this game, I have a few questions: what does a typical "session" (the are called sessions, right?) involve? How long would a typical session last? Do I need to do any prep work/further reading prior to playing the game? As an additional note, judging by the front cover of the player's handbook my friends has, I believe we will be playing the 5th edition. Any advice/answers are appreciated and thanks in advance!
