Join me for a game that's welcoming and engaging for everyone but that has a darker and more serious tone. We'll use Foundry VTT, which is accessible from any computer-based web browser, making it easy for all players to jump in. Our journey begins with Session 0, where you're encouraged to bring your character ideas. If you're new or prefer a quick start, I can have pre-generated characters ready, and we can always tweak them later or completely replace them as you get more comfortable. I'm looking forward to seeing you at my virtual table!!!
