Beginner Dungeon Crawl Classics (DCC) - Portal Under the Stars
Dungeon Crawl Classics on Roll20, Discord
About the adventure
The way DCC starts is each player rolls up 4 characters. Those character are almost completely random and start at level ZERO. That means they are just walking out of the farm fields, taverns, smithies, and shadows of others greater than them on a quest to find fame and fortune. Lots of them will die before this adventure is over. Portal Under the Stars is one of my favorite adventures to use as an introduction for new players to DCC. It should take 4 hours to complete. Normally, I would price a 4-hour session higher, but this is aimed at being accessible to new players and seasoned TTRPG players who want to try something new.
How to prepare
Be signed up for Roll20. Maybe have a pencil and notepad handy. Microphone (webcam optional as we'll use Discord for voice/video)
What I provide
The adventure and all that is required to run the game.
For funnels, we'll roll up characters quickly - takes about 10 minutes per player, and then we'll discuss some quick mechanics that are particular to Dungeon Crawl Classics. From there we head out on adventure! Players will have character die, it's part of the gritty, brutal old-school feel of DCC.
