    About the adventure

    General Setting: Ios Welcome to the Age of Desolation; it is a perilous time of tumult and toil throughout Ios. It has been twenty years since the final battle between the Exalted Gods and the Fallen Gods. In this civil war known as the Divine Cataclysm, the floating cities of the Aeonian Dominion fell and were cascaded along the surface of Ios. Former Aeonian nobility and slaves alike were forced to find new homes on the surface below. Many of the former slaves of the Aeonian Dominion spread to far corners of the continent of Altisha. They formed tribalistic clans and chose to live free and stand against the horrors of a Godless Ios along. Sierrona: Costal City full of intrigue, crime, and ambition Most survivors of the Divine Cataclysm sought refuge in one of the coastal cities of the Ulavari Coast. Each of the coastal cities is under the rule of various competing cartels. The poor suffer under the weight of the elite’s power structure, but trade freedom for safety against the horrors of the wilds. Our story beings in the coastal city of Sierrona. The majority of Sierrona is filthy, cobbled-together houses resembling favelas, the market or the lavish villas of the various power brokers that run the city. Ambitious people attempt to find work with these cartels, foolish people cross them and the wise keep their head down. Which of these people are you? Whatever your reasons, you have surely come to Sierrona for a reason? Perhaps you have lived here since before the war; perhaps you retreated with the rest of the refuges; perhaps you work here for one of the competing organizations or perhaps you are just in town to shop and socialize. Everyone in Sierrona is looking for something, what are you looking for? Game: Dungeons & Dragons 5e {Paid] Group type: Online via Foundry VTT & Discord Player Experience: New and Experienced Players Welcome Schedule: Saturdays 1:00 - 5:00 pm EST; 3 weeks of live sessions, 1-week downtime session Roles sought: All players are welcome at my virtual table. There are currently two spots left to fill at this table. Game style: Balance of roleplay, exploration and combat with complex narratives and believable characters. I aim to challenge my players utilizing all the pillars of D & D while also making sure that everyone is entertained. DM style: I prefer to challenge my players with equal shares of combat, narrative roleplaying, and exploration but I tailor our games based on the needs of my players. I am knowledgeable on the rules as written and I have homebrewed rules to supplement the gameplay experience as appropriate. All my homebrew rules are explained upfront and if I ever need to change a rule, I will discuss it beforehand. I consider myself to be a confident, clever, and fair DM, but good storytelling is to show not tell.
