About the adventure

My goal is to introduce players to the amazing possibilities of collaborative storytelling through the familiarized idea of Dungeons & Dragons. There will be dungeons, dragons, bards, taverns, evil wizards, and so much more!

Additional Details

How to prepare

A microphone will be necessary, and a camera would be appreciated! Reading the rules and knowing the basics of D&D 5e is recommended, but I'm happy to help a new player through any issue they face, as I thoroughly enjoy educating and informing. In terms of software, I run a low budget game, and I trust that all my players will be equipped with the theatre of the mind. Printing out character sheets is always a good idea, but there are several fillable .pdfs available online for those who lack access to a printer.

What I provide

I'll be bringing everything I have to each session, so I hope you will do the same.

Gameplay details

Players can expect to be swept away in the fantastical world of the Forgotten Realms, as we delve into mysterious caverns, fall into the schemes of enthralling opponents, and make friends along the way. This is a safe space for any and all players to get back to basics and experience D&D as it was always meant to be played. Will there be tomfoolery? Certainly.

How will character creation work

Characters will start at level 3 so there's great potential for customization! But there's still 17 more levels to gain, so make a character that has room to grow. Any and all questions are appreciated, as nothing makes me happier than making characters. If you've never made a character, I'm happy to walk you through the process, and I look forward to seeing your creation in action! Don't forget to have flaws!
