Blood and Stone (One-shot)
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Roll20
About the adventure
The village of Platanos is a strange one. It is not particularly rich or wealthy. Neither is it powerful. But the residents would say that they were happy. Something has changed. The land seems to die and the village is withering without produce. Their pleas to their strange goddess have been unanswered. Now using all their remaining wealth, they have hired you and your companions to investigate the matter and to save the land by beseeching their goddess. This will be a one-shot played on my homebrew setting of Stygia. Stygia is basically just Ancient Greece (think Bronze Age Greece) during the times of heroes, myths and monsters. The world is filled with powerful monsters that must be constantly kept at bay unless they destroy all mortal races. And as monsters prowl out in the world, monsters also dwell in the hearts of mortals. You can never be sure of who you trust. It is hard to survive in the world of Stygia, and living to grow old is a luxury not many can afford. This one-shot will be around 20% exploration, 40% roleplaying, and 40% combat.
How to prepare
Having a basic level of understanding the rules is good but if you are a complete beginner, I will run you through the rules and help to make your character. You'll need to make your characters on the Roll20 website or through DNDBeyond. Discord will be necessary since we will use it to communicate.
What I provide
Maps, music and the drama.

How will character creation work
Characters will be starting out at level 4. Stat generation happens using point buy. All official published races and classes are allowed. Ancient Greek themed characters would be a bonus but not required. Characters can be made either on the Roll20 website or through DNDBeyond.
