About the adventure

Never played D&D before? Perfect! This is an intro session where you will be taught how to build and use a character in 5e Dungeons and Dragons. Maybe you are a natural born fighter ready to have a sword put in their hand, a deftly skilled rogue wanting to get somewhere otherwise off limits, or even a powerful caster looking to unveil the arcane nature of the weave. If you don't have a concept already that's okay; let's come up with one.

Additional Details

How to prepare

If you want and have not done so please read the basic rules at https://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/basicrules If you have questions about how to play we can discuss during character building. Please create a roll20 and dndbeyond account. You should bring a device for: -roll20 account access -dndbeyond account access -discord (webcam optional, but mic is not) -these can all be the same device, but if you have trouble toggling all these tabs at once I would recommend printing your character sheet Make sure to hydrate and fuel up for long sessions(think bottled water and snacks)

What I provide

I will provide maps, virtual minis, and dice on roll20. The character sheet and books will be provided on dndbeyond.

Gameplay details

5th edition Dungeons and Dragons is a d20 system, meaning players will be making choices for the characters they play, rolling multi-sided dice and adding their skill to the dice roll to determine success. This adventure will be played as a campaign. meaning there will be several sessions in a continued narrative. At the start of this session, I will have players introduce their characters by giving a short description of pronouns, appearance, and goals. At this point in subsequent sessions we will spend time determining what our character has done with their downtime(the time they spend in between adventures). After some reason to adventure has come up, whether we look on the job board or there is some pressing danger, the rest of the session will be catered to exploring the world and fighting adversaries. At the end of each session the rewards of the adventure will be reaped. Planning- Interpersonal strategizing out of combat is an option, but to keep things interesting I will make you think on your feet when the situation demands it. Exploring- I populate the world with interesting characters and locations, and exploring is in no way limited other than speed of travel. Combat- I use a map program called roll20 to map out combat. I'm flexible with how you choose to proceed with combat. Content warning: violence Rating: R We will use X Cards, Script changes, and Stars and Wishes. This will also function as a session 0
