About the adventure

A group of criminals, all facing capital punishment, are brought together for the chance to win their freedom. Tasked with a mission seemingly impossible, the party of criminals must use their unique skills and work together. Succeeding means their freedom, failure means certain death, when you have nothing left to lose, sometimes a long shot is all you've got left. This one-shot is made to allow for the use of stealth and finesse, or brute force and power depending on the player's choices. Set in a custom world of mine, this heist is action packed and has numerous ways of tackling the problem at hand.

Additional Details

How to prepare

We will communicate through audio only through discord, so a mic will be required. This means a discord account will also be required. Roll20 is a free VTT that we will utilize for the combat maps, so an account on their will also be needed. Roll20 has a virtual dice roller, but players will not be required to use it if they have personal dice they prefer.

What I provide

A custom setting and story Custom drawings made that will be given to players virtually depending the outcome of the mission.

Gameplay details

At any point if a player is uncomfortable or needs a break, they can send me a private message or say something to the whole group as they are comfortable. There will be no judgement or penalty for taking breaks as needed. After the session is over, I will hold some time to debrief with the players as a whole group as well as request Stars and Wishes from players, which they are free to voice in the whole group or privately with me. This game is designed to be very flexible and the combat to role play ratio can easily be adjusted as we play in accordance with player wishes and decisions

How will character creation work

For this session, players should come with a character premade at level 6. All classes and races are available, but keep in mind that these characters are all criminals, so religious classes such as cleric and paladin are less likely but still possible depending on your domain/god(dess)
