An Introduction To Dungeons & Dragons!

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Roll20

Dungeons & Dragons 5e


About the adventure

This is a game designed as a free one shot in order to explore Dungeons & Dragons and my GM style! It is scheduled on a Pay-What-You-Want basis, so if you enjoyed our time together learning about D&D, feel free to leave a gratuity via your Player Dashboard -> Adventures -> Past Sessions :) If we run this one shot and you enjoy my GM style, feel free to book an adventure with me! This one shot consists of a short run through some 5th Edition D&D mechanics, an encounter and a brief dungeon crawl! It is the preliminary encounter that follows into the adventure: The Lost Mine Of Phandelver (That I also run on Roll20!).

How to prepare

In terms of preparing for the game, I would encourage the following:- - I use an application called "Discord" for voice communication. I would recommend installing it on the device you wish to play on! (There is no requirement for using a webcam in my games, only voice is necessary!). - The game will be hosted on the website: - This is where the graphics, music, character sheets and entire game itself will be run! - Owning a copy of the Player's Handbook is advisable but not necessary - I am more than happy to run you through the necessary steps in order to create your character or provide information from the book for you!

What I provide

I will host the game on Roll20 which the players will be able to access at any point outside of game time. This will enable players to level up or review game information for the next session!

Gameplay details

My games are catered to all ages. I like to run a Session 0 where I will encourage the players to discuss relevant themes that may be deemed unsuitable for the group's needs e.g. Harsh language, violence and gore, body horror, phobias etc. If these subjects were preferred to be discussed privately, I would instead provide a consent form that would let the player privately submit their preferences on content they would rather not see featured in the game. If that player would rather talk to me directly in private, that would be perfectly fine too. I handle triggers and inappropriate content with confidentiality and respect towards the player's views and beliefs. If, during the game, a player is uncomfortable with the content they are participating in, I encourage that player to let me know in private so that we can stop the session, take a break and discuss the issue privately. How my players feel during my games is my top priority and if one person is not having fun, I will take the steps necessary to ensure they are heard and ensure the subjects they deemed inappropriate are kept strictly off the table. I take a no-tolerance approach to inter-player conflict. Should one or more players become uncomfortable with each other, I would do my best to resolve the conflict privately and in a healthy manner. Communication is vital during times of player conflict and I do my best to promote this in the game and outside too.

How will character creation work

This is a one shot adventure with premade characters. Players may join this adventure with no previous D&D experience or resources! Everything will be provided by myself and on the website Roll20. This one shot is designed to introduce newer players to D&D and to find out more about my GM style. If my style caters to you or your friends, feel free to book me for a proper adventure!
