Additional Details

How to prepare

Ideally everyone will have a webcam and microphone they can use for our sessions. You will need to be able to use Zoom and DnD Beyond for this game, as well as taking a look at the background information for the Humblewood setting which I will provide. We'll go over any rules people need to check in the Session Zero, and I am happy to help in between sessions.

What I provide

I will include an overlay for us to use, with an animated background, space for character names and more to immerse us fully in the game. I'll include setting appropriate ambient and battle music, to add a cinematic layer to our game. We'll also have an interactive battle map available using the Above VTT system on DnD Beyond. And finally, we'll be playing with the Rule of Cool! I play with a very "Yes, and" style, and I want us all to have a ton of fun!

Gameplay details

All players will receive a Lines & Veils Document to fill in, and this will be fully covered in a Session Zero where I will run through expectations (mine and yours) with all players. I'll check in with all players via Discord to check how they are feeling about the game after each session. The X Card system will be offered as either a digital chat function or by physically holding up arms in an X on camera
