About the adventure

"ADVENTURERS SORT-OF WANTED: The presently-cursed township of Wallop-on-Snoring seeks skilled-yet-incurious heroes to persuade our wizard to lift the curse of compulsive honesty he laid on us. His tower will most likely be filled with deadly monsters and traps, but we don't really know since the prior people we sent never came back. Please save us from our partially-self-inflicted problem!" This strange ad has led your band of adventurers to a cursed town sitting on a huge secret. Investigating how to lift the curse will take you far from home and leave the planes at your fingertips. Expect lots of roleplay opportunities, a dollop of dungeon-crawling, and narrative shenanigans aplenty. - Tour several D&D campaign settings and chitchat with unspeakable horrors! - Monsters! Predatory real estate transactions! Moments of tonal whiplash! - An absurdist campaign in which your characters will start at level 5 and end up somewhere around 9th (or 10th, but spoilers, sweetie.) - Numerous fun surprises that make it really hard to write an ad without ruining it for you!

Additional Details

How to prepare

You'll need a working mic, webcam, and headphones. Please also have accounts with D&D Beyond, Discord, and Roll20, as well as install the Beyond20 browser extension. If you've already created a character, please send me a D&D Beyond link so we can add them to the campaign. If you'd prefer to jump in with one of the pre-generated characters, just click the Claim button next to the one you're choosing once you've joined the campaign, or message me and we can work on a creating a character together.

What I provide

a D&D master license and content sharing, custom maps, atmospheric music, a range of NPC voices, and a campaign I absolutely loved designing.

Gameplay details

This is D&D: players can expect things to try to kill their characters in-between the jokes. We'll be taking at least one break per game; more, if folks request it. We'll work out our content guidelines together during session 0.
