About the adventure

A vast woodland defines the northern boundary of the continent: the Winterbole Forest. It is home to a multitude of humanoids and other creatures, all of them living outside of what the rest of the continent would call a "civilized world". However, it would be a mistake to call them savage or primitive. Primal powers run deep within their blood, ancient stories of their ancestors nourish their spirit, and they – not a group of freshly arrived mercenaries – will be the heroes of this adventure. An enormous walled city built of marble, steel, and glass appeared – seemingly overnight – at the edge of the Winterbole Forest. Nothing can be seen beyond its towering, smooth walls. Weird sounds can be heard: hammering, open flame, arcane discharges… Something is being built there. But what? And by whom? Somebody needs to enter this hostile environment and find answers. Setting: homebrew based on Nentir Vale In a Nutshell: walled city as a dungeon for a group of primal characters General Mood: dungeon crawl with a twist

How will character creation work

Players will need to create 5th level characters. Ability scores: either Standard Array (15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8) or rolling on Discord just before the session. All players will pick one of the factions descibed in the following Google Doc when making their character. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1szAiHITh77mBumtzwbZqqWNt4fzFC0DP1EH6hbv1H7I I can also provide assistance in character creation.
