About the adventure

In the wake of the Shardstorm, the world has changed. All across the lands, large Shards of obsidian have grown up out of the ground, creating rifts in the fabric of reality. From some, dark and strange creatures have emerged; others appear to be portals to distant lands, far away realms, and even other realities. The presence of these shards has rocked the city of Kalumnoir. The Nameless --an almost cult-like military organization run by a mysterious figurehead-- have long protected the city from external threats. Now, these portals have released new threats, popping up mysteriously both within and without the city walls. This campaign will be fairly combat-heavy, with a rough mix of 50% combat, 30% roleplay/interaction, and 20% exploration/miscellaneous. Character optimization is not only allowed, but encouraged. The campaign will start at 1st level, with the group leveling up each session until 3rd. The campaign will continue to 20th level. Experienced players are enthusiastically welcomed, although I won't turn anyone away based on the amount you've played.

How to prepare

Prior to play, you'll want to have both Fantasy Grounds Unity (the Free DEMO version is fine) and Discord installed on your devices. If you've not used these services before, don't worry! Newbies are more than welcome, and I try to make myself available to anyone ahead of time who needs technical assistance.

What I provide

I bring the story and all of the maps/mechanical necessities. I also provide access to a shared DnDBeyond campaign containing all of the character creation options.

Gameplay details

GAMEPLAY: Over the course of the campaign, players will experience a rough balance between combat, exploration, and roleplaying, though specific sessions may focus largely (or sometimes entirely) on one aspect of the game. SAFETY TOOLS: Lines and veils are used to set boundaries on content in a game. Lines are hard limits on content, things that the GM or the players don’t want to engage in. Setting up a line means that content won’t show up in the game at all. Veils are soft limits, things that are ok “behind a curtain” or when they “cut-to-black.” Setting up a veil means that the content might be in the game but not spotlighted or described in great detail. Lines and veils can be adjusted as needed throughout the game. I will discuss lines and veils with players prior to our first session together.

How will character creation work

Character creation should be done either in DnDBeyond or Fantasy Grounds. Players will be given a link to join my DnDBeyond campaign, which will give them access to all of the published Dungeons & Dragons character options. Characters will start at 1st level and will level up each week until 3rd level, when it will slow down a bit.
