Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Roll20
About the adventure
Your party takes respite in a tavern while stopping at a frontier town, on the edge of civilization. A distraught woman asks for your help, handing you an ominous letter detailing a baleful curse which has befallen her ancestral home. Now, you must enter this unhallowed ground and drive back whatever other-worldly entities have taken refuge. Will you succeed and part the darkened skies, or will madness reduce you to a shivering husk? Gameplay: Role-play: 2/5 Combat: 4/5 Puzzles/traps:5/5 Exploration: 3/5 *scores based on amount used in module This horror centric one-shot adventure for a party of 3 to 5 4th level PCs takes 6 hours to complete. This is typically done as a "two part" adventure, with separate 3-3.5 hour sessions but it can also be completed in a longer single session. It includes a home-brewed Sanity Score system based roughly around the Stress mechanic of Red Hook Software's "Darkest Dungeon" and blends the Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition Madness rules with 5e's own variant Madness rules.
How to prepare
Microphone of at least *decent* quality Please be in a mostly quiet room; background noise is distracting Decent internet connection be familiar with Roll20 - we will be making characters in the game there and rolling off of those sheets Please be decently well versed in basic 5e rules
What I provide
Everything will be on Roll20; maps, character sheets, art, etc...
This game will center around a now abandoned manor filled with Eldritch horrors and cursed objects that will sap the sanity of the PCs. Gameplay will center around exploring the manor and uncovering clues about what to do next, while fending off against these creatures in combat and having their will drained. There are some homebrewed mechanics for sanity that are more robust than the standard 5e ones.
