    About the adventure

    Long ago, the real of Arora was fractured in the aftermath of The Great Abjuration, a ritual spell of untold and unprecedented power, cast as a desperate attempt to ward off an ancient, insidious foe. Now, life in the Five Realms is a constant struggle for its inhabitants: their rulers have gone mad, the very land is against them, and tumultuous, unknown powers move just under the surface. This is Arora, a chaotic, broken place where you will need all of your strength, cunning, and power to survive. This DnD 5th Edition campaign will test you as you explore the Five Realms, interact with a various cast of NPCs, and find your path to greatness. At its core, Age of Desolation will explore the themes (and mechanics) of exploration and adventure in a dangerous realm. Players must be aware of their environment and research and learn its unique hazards and deadfalls. They must learn to make the best out of bad circumstances as they work for, and with, other survivers in these harsh times. As a DM, I love games where the players' decision matters, and they get to explore and grow their characters in new and exciting ways. Arora is a place in need of heroes, will you heed the call?

    How to prepare

    Players should be familiar with, or at least have logged into, Foundry VTT and the Forge hosting system before session 0. Players will need a microphone of decent quality.

Finally, players should be prepared to have a great time and enjoy themselves!

    What I provide
