About the adventure

*Introduction to Campaign Setting / Character Creation and Development Session* Custom game setting. I am an author and artist currently creating this world. I will create custom maps based on the adventures you go on and specific locations you might travel to. I am happy with any type of story the players would like to go on, and we can discuss it in session 0, from a classic adventure, to a more political, war-style, mystery, or more specific idea, since I will custom tailor each game for the party, with enjoyable opportunities and challenges. This is a low-level, low-magic, and high-roleplay game. The focus will be on the story and the player character quests and how they influence the world, combat will be short and sweet and pose real risks. There is room in this world for you. Magic is rare and expensive, and playing a magic-user will come with some additional rules, such as ritual casting and limited "can-trip" usage. Characters can create any class of character in dnd 5e, (but keep in mind mage usage will be limited to a higher degree than usual,) available races include Human, Elf, these are the most common in the campaign setting, other races would require more world development behind the scene from me :D but I am happy to do that work, the extra races include Halfling, Kitsune, Gnomes, or Fairies (tiny + fae), and Firbolg (classic sort + huge). Typically, I have done these short character introduction adventures as a way to add to character backstories and filter a very well-developed character into a campaign with more players, and these "backstory adventures" would span 1-5 sessions, typically on the shorter side, but we could do these intro sessions with additional players, or change them in any way.

How will character creation work

That is what this session is for! You can create your backstory with me at the beginning of the session--or you can bring your own backstory, as long as it fits within the overall theme of the world somehow. Ensure your pre-made backstory is somewhat vague in terms of location. Ensure your pre-made backstory is low-magic, realistic historical, if you are Human you are likely from the medieval valleys of Farlieong, or the vast Wuxia coastlands beyond the Forgotten Mountains. If you are a High Elf you are likely from the Northern Unions or the Errigoldian Empire. If you are a Drow Elf, you are likely from the depths of the Southern Errigoldian Empire. If you are a Giant you are likely from the barbarous mountains of Goldania of Yore. If you are a Fairy, or a Wood Elf, you likely live in a massive forest. If you are a Dwarf you likely live in the freezing northern mountains, or the endless tunnels below the earth. If you are a Giant or a Fairy you likely are concerned with a very different world, than Humans or Elves. There is certainly some room for high fantasy options as well, such as Wizards (with restrictions,) Elves, Fairies, Halflings, Gnomes, Dwarves, Giants, and possibly others. Think the Lord of the Rings, Tales of King Arthur and Merlin, or the Legend of Zelda.
