Additional Details

How to prepare

At minimum, the players will need a webcam and a mic. Rules will be explained through play. Characters will either be chosen at the session or prepared in consult with the Blue Collar Dungeon Master. No software needed. Internet connection with a relatively modern computer capable of running both Discord and a web browser such as Google Chrome required. Dice will be rolled virtually via Foundry VTT (we will go over at the start of session). A print out of the sheet is not necessary as it will be stored in both DNDBeyond and Foundry but is encouraged. Players will need to have Discord installed either on a device cable of performing voice and video capabilities for the session. Video call will be handled in Discord.

What I provide

The Blue Collar Dungeon Master will provide the game interface being Foundry VTT and DND Beyond Content for character creation as well as any subscription to video conference tools needed for the game (I have a Google Meet and Zoom subscription depending on preference. We can also used Discord for video conferencing as well.)

Gameplay details

Players can expect a gothic crossed with eldritch style horror play environment with a focus on gradually learning rules through play as opposed to having to do any "homework" prior to the session for those new to the system. As such, safety tools for this game will be vitally important for anyone joining the game. The game will employ safety tools like the XNO cards and a Digital RPG Consent list to ensure no boundaries are crossed. Players can expect the game would be rated PG13, possibly R dependent on responses to the consent list as far as content goes. Your responses to this consent list will be taken seriously. I as a DM/GM have my own boundaries as well that I will share to ensure you are aware of the spirit of the game.
