How to prepare

Players will need a Roll20 and Discord account to play, as well as a decent quality headset/microphone. Video is optional. I recommend players dig deep when it comes to their character backstories and their ties to Waterdeep and it's inhabitants. This really helps with immersion and it gives me the fuel I need to craft something unique and meaningful for your character! I will be providing content consent forms to get a feel for what topics/themes are not to be included in our run of the module and I recommend filling this out before Session 1.

What I provide

As the Game Master, I bring a wealth of resources to ensure a rich and immersive experience for my players. Here's what you can expect: A dedicated Discord server with channels for RP, Character Details, Player Feedback, and General Banter. This allows for easy communication between players, as well as a space to explore your character's backstory and goals. Curated music playlists that enhance the different moods and atmospheres we'll encounter throughout the game. From eerie soundscapes to intense battle music, the right music can really bring a scene to life. A Roll20 Pro subscription, giving full compendium access to my players. This means that you will have access to all of my sourcebook purchases at any time through Roll20. No need to worry about not having a specific rulebook or reference material on hand - it's all at your fingertips. A passion for voice acting NPCs, roleplaying, and narrating an immersive experience to help you really feel like you're in Waterdeep. I strive to make every character unique and memorable, and to create a world that feels alive and full of intrigue and mystery. With these resources at our disposal, we can create a truly immersive and unforgettable experience in the urban setting of the City of Splendours. So come prepared to become caught up in the frantic race to fins the Hoard of Dragons!

How will character creation work

You and I will work on creating a level 1 character that's both exciting for you to play and suited to the setting and theme of the module in a private voice call. We'll be jumping into Roll20 together to create your interactive character sheet before we get started with the module and I am open and encouraging of all character ideas/backstories etc. If you're familiar with Roll20's character creation then I will happily make you a blank character sheet that you can build yourself!
