    About the adventure

    You stare at the envelope with your name written elegantly on it. Inside is the letter that will send you down a path filled with miracles and terrors you have no business bearing witness to. ﹌﹌﹌ "Dear Fortunate Soul, Ludendorf University's Inner Circle is pleased to inform you that you have the privilege of being one of this year's nominees offered the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to assist the renowned Dr. Viktra Mordenheim in her groundbreaking scientific endeavors. Explore foreign domains, participate in groundbreaking medical procedures, and test the limits of your mind, body, and soul, all in the name of science! Please note that when you accept this life-changing position, you assume the foreseeable and unforeseeable risk of personal injuries related to assisting the doctor, and agree to release, discharge, and hold harmless related parties free from any and all liabilities, claims, cause of action, damages, or losses, which may be incurred. Simply put, you acknowledge that Dr. Mordenheim and Ludendorf University can not be held responsible for any damages that may arise throughout service, including: • bodily harm • death • temporary body transference anomalies • post-mortem death • re-post-mortem un-death • and loss of smell. We look forward to the discoveries that you will no doubt be a part of. Huzzah for you! Best of luck. -Ludendorf University, Inner Circle" ﹌﹌﹌ In this campaign, you take on the roles of lab assistants to the great Dr. Mordenheim. Duties include: • Fetching hard-to-find components • Field testing experimental equipment or medical procedures And most importantly • Ensuring that nothing stands in the way of the doctor's progress Your group will quickly find that the doctor has their sights set on information and objects from dreadful domains not found on any maps you've seen previously. However, there's no need to worry. The doctor will ensure you're in top form before you go...but it might not be the form you're used to.

    How to prepare

    Players will need a device capable of joining the game session (either Zoom, Discord, or Google Meet depending on group preference). A mic will be required to participate, but no one will be required to turn their webcam on unless they want to. I will have my camera on and will have backgrounds and visuals change periodically on my camera feed. Players are welcome to use physical dice if they want, but Dndbeyond will be used to manage character sheets and has a very good digital dice roller that shares dice rolls with everyone in the game. Maps and custom tokens will be accessible through Owlbear Rodeo. This virtual tabletop is free and does not require an account to use. You simple click a link that is generated for the session and you're instantly on the same map as everyone else in the group!

    What I provide

    Virtual character sheets, maps, and story related visuals.

    Gameplay details

    Content Warning / Safety Tools This campaign will explore various Domains of Dread where different genres of horror are employed to progress the story. Before the game begins I will ask everyone for their comfort levels and try to gauge levels of in-game descriptions to fit within everyone's tolerances. However, this game will have mature themes such as death, violence, mild language, etc. Players are always free to stop me during a session if we venture outside of their comfort zone, and everyone is welcome to discuss settings with me before and after a game.
