Dungeons & Dragons 5e


Theater of the Mind

About the adventure

In "A Familiar's Quandary," players take on the role of familiars who must work together to undo the effects of a faulty polymorph potion that has turned their wizardry friend into goo. They will need to act quickly, for the transformation threatens to become permanent! The adventure is a lighthearted romp through a wizard's tower and can be completed without combat in two to three hours by four or five players. A great adventure for beginners to Dungeons and Dragons, or maybe just a family game night. Are you a fan of “The Brave Little Toaster” or stories like it where the small little underdogs must save the day? Then this is the game for you!

Additional Details

How to prepare

You need a account on discord, and maybe dice but if you don’t have dice there will be virtual dice. You will also need a good microphone. Because this game is theater of the mind it is recommended you use a web-cam so we can see each other. If you don't feel comfortable with using one that is fine.

What I provide

I will have virtual dice for you to use and also character sheets for you to use.

Gameplay details

General Rating: PG:13 - Can be past this depending on situation and group We will be using the Lines and Veils tool, this tool is intended to put limits on the game. Lines are things you as a player don't want to happen at all in the game, hard stop. Veils are things you don't want described and if they happen in game it will just 'fade to black' and then the game will continue. Open Door means that is any player wants to they can take a break from the game if they feel they need it, no questions asked. Stars and Wishes is at the end of a session where players can say what they liked and what they want to change. CODE OF CONDUCT - NO Bullying, hazing, or otherwise picking on a fellow character. You are a team and as such will treat each other with respect. - NO Sexual content (sweet talking may be used as a form of persuasion but ONLY with NPCs) Try and keep it pg-13 at least in this area - NO Shutting down other players ideas or actions. Each player has a chance to voice their thoughts or intent. If you say "My character will try..." after I determine if the game allows that action, we will then play out the outcome. If you ask the party for their opinion, then that action can be decided upon by the group (in or out of character). There are no wrong answer or suggestions. This is overridden if you feel uncomfortable with something someone is doing. If during a live game something comes up that is making you uncomfortable, please speak up and the event/action will cease immediately.
