About the adventure

I am running the Candlekeep Mysteries, which is an anthology of adventures written by members of the Dungeons & Dragons community. Each adventure begins with a book that the characters find in Candlekeep, an enormous library located on the Sword Coast in the Forgotten Realms setting. Each adventure is designed for four to six characters of a particular level but we can adjust it for larger or smaller groups as well as for characters of higher or lower level.

Gameplay details

I enjoy running official D&D modules to explore the rich lore of the forgotten realms and beyond. I focus on player centric games where we work on creating new storys together. Using official D&D world as a backdrop means we can concentrate on players characters and the storys we are developing. We start our campaign with a game zero to ensure we create a safe and enjoyable game for all, where I will be employing my counselling skills to write a social contract that we all agree upon. Including what safe guards, safety tools and game mechanics we will be using within the game.

How will character creation work

Character creation can be done by Point Buy using D&D Beyond. Create your character on D&D Beyond after accepting D&D Beyond invite to ensure we are all using the same books and resources. Characters start at level 1 and level up by milestone. We can discuss this further in game zero.
