Don't Disturb the Neighbors!
Radiance RPG on Discord, Owlbear Rodeo
About the adventure
Clemence Gastly and her family have unusual interests and obsessions, but they're not evil, just misunderstood. After too many incidents involving peasants, pitchforks and torches, they've taken to heart the family motto - Noli Turbare Vicini (Don't disturb the neighbors). They keep their hobbies and appetites in check (mostly). But when the annual Halloween seance with great-great-great-grandpa goes awry and "something else" shows up in the summoning circle, the Gastlys must solve the problem quickly and quietly, or their nice suburb will turn against them - if it survives. Fortunately, this is the one night of the year they can be themselves in public. THE CAST: Clemence Gastly - necromancer. Indigo Gastly - teenage witch. Logan Gastly - dhampir. Nit Gastly - 'goyle. Leo daSilva - mad scientist. Smith - Leo's monster. Olayinka - shifter. Kayin Kuo - Logan's pet spider. Part of this game's proceeds will go to Don't Be a Monster, which provides free bullying prevention programs to schools. More information at https://www.dontbeamonster.org/
How to prepare
Microphone and Discord required. You'll get a link to the Owlbear Rodeo table, which requires no account, just click and you're there. You'll need a way to print your character sheet (any spreadsheet opener, like Excel, Microsoft Office, or LibreOffice can open and print it).
What I provide
torches and pitchforks, just in case.
Despite the horror tropes, this lighthearted romp is great for families to play together. Lots of problem solving, a bit of combat. The Radiance RPG system will feel familiar to anyone who's played D&D, and is easy to learn for those who haven't. I have an anonymous safety monitor token on the mapboard, that anyone can move from "we're fine" to "caution" or "stop!" if anything in the gameplay or content is making them uncomfortable. I want your CHARACTER to occasionally be terrified, frustrated, angry, confused or sad - and to push through and overcome it. I never want YOU to feel that way at my table.
