    About the adventure

    "Out past the spires, in the tyrannical rays of the midnight sun, there are cracks in the surface of the ice. Those cold and lonely breaches—what stirs in their depths? What constellations twinkle on their rimy walls? The nomads knew. Their stories passed from mouth to ear. Imagine what was lost in the transcription. These dead pages full of ink—so much earnest work, and to what end? As though this scribbling could capture all the facets of a voice telling a story. I aim to visit one myself. The breaches in the ice. To have before me that which I have loved as I would a child. Bah, save your judgment—what stirs your heart to wander this far from comfort..." ❄️ ❄️ ❄️ ❄️ ❄️ ❄️ There's been no word from the distant northern outpost of Breath's End in weeks. Venturing through ice and snow to reach this isolated place in the heart of winter, you've been sent to find the fate of the outpost and those people who'd made it their home. Winter's Starry Breach is a short, single-session adventure for a party of level 3 characters set in the frozen north of some unnamed land. What secrets might you unearth when you arrive? Only time and the passing of winter winds can say...

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Requirements • Working microphone for voice chat • Discord, where voice chat will take place • A Roll20 account where character sheets and dice rolls will be tracked. Note that Roll20 works best on a computer Additional • Webcams are welcome but are not required • Players may use D&D Beyond if desired, but will require the Beyond20 extension to make rolls within Roll20 NOTE: Be advised that I do not personally use a live-action camera during gameplay, but rather have an animated avatar that motion tracks my face and movements which I may enable. My voice is unmodified but, for personal privacy, I avoid displaying my actual likeness online.

    What I provide

    I will provide access to a Roll20 campaign where all dice rolls and character sheets will be stored and tracked, along with material for any custom game rules we are running with. We will use http://rolladvantage.com/tokenstamp/ to create any relevant character tokens.
