About the adventure

The Wizard’s Tower Brewing Co. - a craft brewery known for its hoppy summer ales - is in dire need of help from a band of reliable, affordable adventurers. The classic problem of rats in the cellar. But not all is what it seems, things that where hidden have now been uncovered. This is an intro to Dungeons and Dragons adventure. A great game for beginners who are just starting out and veterans who want to get back to the basics.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You will need a Discord account. You will need a decent internet connection. I encourage the use of Webcams but if you don't want to do so that is fine. You will need a good mic.

What I provide

I will provide handouts, maps, character sheets, and pre-generated characters.

Gameplay details

This is a Learn to Play adventure, so while I will be teaching the rules as we play it is encouraged that you look over the basic rules. https://media.wizards.com/2018/dnd/downloads/DnD_BasicRules_2018.pdf 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.
