Dungeons & Dragons 5e



About the adventure

The introductory D&D 5e official game. " The characters are in the city of Neverwinter when their dwarf patron and friend, Gundren Rockseeker, hires them to escort a wagon to Phandalin." Small job leads to a big adventure. Peak D&D.

Brings Majority (eventually all) of books on DnDbeyond. Just picked up Call of Cthulhu (7th edition), Pathfinder 2, Starfinder... and a few others. Can get books to any game people are willing to play. I would love to try new systems with new people! to the table

Additional Details

How to prepare

Having a base idea of the rules is useful. But generally, I'll ask "What do you want to do?" and then depending on your answer, I'll guide you through your options to achieve that goal. I am very happy to help teach the game along the way! Access to a microphone and a decent internet connection is highly recommended.

What I provide

I will have digital maps and handouts to show during the game.

Gameplay details

This is a quintessential D&D game. There is a mix of everything. I will do my best to see what the group is enjoying (and not enjoying) the most and adjust the game to best suit them.

How will character creation work

If you bring your own characters, great. If you would like to have a zero session or work together with me (the DM) and/or the other players, also great! In fact, the latter is preferred by me than the former, but both are viable.

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Medium
  • Roleplay: Medium
