About the adventure

"Your journey begins as mere whispers in the wind, tales of a house that devours the brave and the foolish alike: your path crosses with a once-bold pirate, now a shell of his former self, haunted by memories of terror unspeakable. His tales, steeped in the dread of his encounter and marinated in the ale of countless retellings, speak of a malevolence that dwells within the house. From ghostly apparitions to undead horrors, his words paint a picture of a place forgotten by light and embraced by darkness." "The townsfolk, once curious, now shudder at the mere mention of the desolate dwelling. Yet, the heart of adventure beats strong, and for those intrepid souls, the lure of the unknown may prove irresistible. Be you pirate or paladin, adventure awaits!"

How to prepare

Please have a decent internet connection, mutable mic, respectful of other players, etc... A free account on DnDBeyond & Owlbear.rodeo Session is played on Owlbear.Rodeo Discord is used for Voice & Ambience via Kenku FM

What I provide

Years of XP with Owlbear.Rodeo and Kenku FM, everything you'll need on D&DBeyond, patience of a saint for new players and creative challenges for veterans. I customize my sessions to the players 'at the table.' This is why I keep the adventure description purposefully vague.

Gameplay details

We'll have a very brief 'Session Zero' at the beginning of every session. Lemme know if there is anything you DO NOT want in the session ahead of time.
