About the adventure
A Reloaded Underworld: A gritty world brimming with the unknown. In a millennia-old, conflict the surface of the world was rendered uninhabitable and scarred forever by magical weapons of religious proportion. Unfathomable horrors lurk around every twist and bend in the Underworld. Cavernous tunnels and abandoned halls tied together by endless narrow passageways make up most of the habitable world. Forced underground by their own greed, the civilized races of the world scoured the upper regions of the Underworld and established a precarious foothold. The gates of Gül hold back the constant onslaught of underlings which viciously assault the final vestiges of ordered civilization. The war stagnated and their new world order thrived for nearly one thousand years. That is, until now, when the underlings have begun to benefit from unprecedented and potentially damning technological revolutions which threaten the fragile balance of the war. This adventure is meant to transport players to the depths of the rough underground. Danger and death dog your footsteps, and victories are hard-won. I like to make full-throttle adventures with plots filled with political and social intrigue, scary combat, and difficult decisions. My goal is that after every session you're left wanting more. The setting is at a very transitional time period for the world. New technologies are rapidly changing how life is lived and how battles are fought. (Think WW1, the American Civil War, and the Wild West).
How to prepare
Players should have a free D&D Beyond account, Discord Account, and Roll20 Account to play effectively (these sites work best on chrome I've found. They should also have a pen and paper for notes. You will not need to print anything or have real dice (unless you want them!) we can handle these things digitally.
What I provide
I have premium Roll20, D&D beyond with multiple sourcebooks to share, a Discord Server, Premium Hero Forge for Character Art and Tokens, and I can draw character art. I hand draw or generate maps that I will send to players. I also write google documents with rule augmentations and fun lore pieces for the players to enjoy.
This game may include some of the themes mentioned above. I like to play in games where every problem that exists in the real world also exists in the setting, however if it is determined at session 0 that certain themes should be avoided, I am completely happy with avoiding them or not describing them if they do happen during the game.
- Character Death
- Medical Issues
Safety tools used
- Lines and Veils
- Open Door
- Session 0
- Stars and Wishes
- X, N, and O Cards
How will character creation work
You will have the option to create a character or choose a premade character at session 0, we will create a character to form a synergistic party and have some cool social themes to work with roleplay-wise.
