About the adventure

PLAY ON OUR DAY! I list these games on the 1st and 15th of each month. Sign up for one and we will negotiate the actual date! Birthday celebrant PLAYS FREE!!! ฅ^•ﻌ•^ฅ ╠╣APPY BIRT╠╣DAY! ================================= Think: "Lord of the Rings" meets "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory"! Your party has stolen the birthday cake of the puissant Hierophant of Gaf, and he has a sweet tooth AND a temper. You begin on the run from the Hierophant's guards. You know that if they catch you, it is Certain Death. Scratch that. The Hierophant is a powerful wizard, so it is Certain Death IF YOU ARE LUCKY! Turn this way. Run that way! Serpentine! You could probably slip away if you weren't carrying this FRIGGIN' ENORMOUS CAKE! You should have remembered that old saying: "Do not meddle in the eclairs of Wizards, for they are quick to anger and love their sweets." Well, technically it's a cake not an eclair. But the pun works better. Match wits with the fearsome and volatile Hierophant and battle a host of homebrew creatures in a realm created just for birthdays. And one more thing: party members who have a birthday play FREE! [A note about game tokens. The wonderful token in my promo were created by artist David Wilson from 2 Minute Tabletop. They are used with permission. I made the cake!]

How to prepare

I will send new players a "cheat sheet" to help them play. I also offer a free 45 mins character rolling session for brand new players. Players must have webcam/mic/headphones. We will have 1/2 hour FREE pregame tech time to make sure we can communicate. Players will need Discord (or we can play through Meet, Zoom, or other comm software.)

Players who connect through DND Beyond (for FREE) will have access to: 1. all core manuals (including Player Handbook, Rick and Morty vs. DND, DM Guide and Monster Manual.) 2. 3D Online Dice rolling Map Software: I use Encounter + which is a browser-based map software. Players can move their own tokens. Maps are gorgeous and include Line of Sight and Fog of War. I'll also be bringing my sense of humour, my ability to improvise, my professional writing skills and my warm and pleasant gameplay style.
