    About the adventure

    Tarosrik is an old world with well settled races, long grudges, deep customs, and deeper secrets. The theme is "Hidden Things" If you're looking for a rules light, and RP heavy story, where you'll see grand vistas, landmarks so off the beaten path you'll get to name them yourself, and a secret or two that will literally reshape the world of Tarosrik forever, join me at the table! It's not my world, it's yours. If you have a concept, we'll make it happen!

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    While system knowledge beforehand is preferable, it's not mandatory. I will be happy to go over any rules both before, and at, the table. Zoom or Skype installed is needed as that's where the table happens.

    What I provide

    I'll bring the system, dice, a sense of humor, and a tendency to say yes! If there's something you want, whether it be music, a group art piece, whatever, let me know and I'll provide it!

    Gameplay details

    You guide this part. If you want to slow down and plan for 15 minutes, I'm cool with that. If you want to zip zip zip and flit into everything without a plan, that's cool too! I will make sure to include options in every session for social encounters, exploration, combat, and I love to check in with players after the session to shift everything towards what they want. Is my definition of enough combat not enough for you? More threats it is! Mechanically, I tend towards assumed competency and only rolling if failure would matter. Of course Xaxon the Pick can open the lock, can he do it before the ogre finishes barreling down the hallway? Now he rolls!

      How will character creation work

      Character creation will happen with me before play starts. I specialize in low hp, high damage, swift encounters so level 1 or 0 is the preferred starting point.

      Players can expect

      • Combat/Tactics: Low
      • Roleplay: Medium
      • Puzzles: Low
      • Experience Level: Open To All
