About the adventure

The village of Orlane was prosperous, exporting some of the finest wine in Illdenstern. You've received word from someone that lives there, someone close to you, that things are not right in Orlane. A curse has befallen the village: some people are acting strangely, while others are disappearing- the letters beg you to come and help. Can you unravel the mystery of Orlane and save the village from its doom? Games that I run are heavily based on choices made by YOU, and the consequences of those choices! You are dropped into a living world: the characters, factions, and monsters all have their own agendas. Your actions will influence the course of events that occur- and your choices will have consequences, both good and bad. You will make an impact on the world, one way or the other. This is a three-to-five session adventure that will see the players advance from 1st to 3rd level- characters could be carried into a future adventure if you so desire! It is inspired by a classic Advanced Dungeons & Dragons module of the same name, so please do not look it up!

Gameplay details

Players can expect relatively fast-paced 5e D&D tactical combat, roleplaying opportunities, and exploration of dark and dangerous locations. D&D is, as a system, focused on combat- but if you want to spend time forming relationships with people of the village, or negotiating with foes, there are opportunities for such if you seize them! This is a fantasy world that includes combat, death, dangers, and magic. Please voice any issues (ex. arachnophobia) before or, if necessary, during play- this is an entertaining and engaging experience, mild discomfort may occur depending on the vividness of your imagination, but you should never be made more uncomfortable than you're comfortable with, if that makes sense :) 'Romantic' encounters are fade to black (the bard and the barman are into one-another, that night they meet, fade to black on that). Descriptions of blood, death, violence, etc. are present but are not a focus- the intent is to draw you into the scene, not to upset you with vivid descriptions of torture or death.

How will character creation work

The first session of the game will be a 'Session 0,' where we create characters together, discuss the party and any relationships between characters, align expectations for the game and more. If players are new to Dungeons & Dragons, we'll go over what to expect from a tabletop roleplaying game in general. It's fun once you realize that you're in an open world and can make the decisions you like (albeit with consequences ;) )! If necessary or desired, pre-generated characters are available. After the completion of this portion, we can begin the adventure with the remaining time!

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: High
  • Roleplay: Medium
  • Puzzles: Medium
