About the adventure

A House Divided is an adventure centered on a noble family brought low by ambition and betrayal. It begins simple enough, a party of adventurers investigate an old manor house that has been abandoned for the past few years following the sudden and mysterious disappearance of its occupants. Within the ground of the old estate, however, their exploration begins to take a turn. You will quickly realize that something horrible happened in this place and the missing members of the family are not gone, nor have they forgotten their sins against each other. You'll find yourselves jumping between planes occupied by grim shadows and planes filled with chaotic fey, navigating a family with their own problems and ambitions, becoming increasingly involved as time goes on. Ultimately, it will be up to you to decide if you will help settle matters, make things worse, or turn against all parties and claim the manor and its lands for yourself.

Gameplay details

**Sessions will be scheduled weekly on Thursdays at 6:30 pm UTC -4. Please message me if you need help with the time conversion** Before our first meeting, please have an idea of what you want to play in mind, you don't necessarily need to have all stats, items, background, ideals, etc. established but please have a general idea of the type of character you want to bring. Session -1 (free) is handled individually and I will work with you to finalize your character idea and integrate them into the story. Then we will have a Session 0 (also free) to bring everyone together, get to know our fellow players, and go over a few final things in regards to expectations. I will be going over an RPG Consent Checklist individually and making sure that I know exactly where people's comfort zones start and end.
