About the adventure

A sorcerer of the King's court has gathered your group to carry a package to a small village within the ancient forest of the Sablewood. You've been given a map, a carriage, and the promise of a reward upon delivering the crate to someone called "the Whitefire Arcanist." The crate is large, heavy, magically sealed, and only occasionally rattles while emitting an eerie keening sound. This job should be simple... right? Welcome to the official Quickstart Adventure for Critical Role's Daggerheart. Here you can learn to play the world's newest TTRPG! You have a variety of unique races, classes, backgrounds, and skills to choose from that combine in interesting ways to create a memorable and fun experience for new players and veterans alike. The Duality Dice system provides a fresh perspective on rolling — making it a treat for D&D players, yet at the same time, it's simple enough for new players to pick up in no time. During this one-shot, you'll learn the basics of Daggerheart and get an introduction to roleplaying with this exciting new narrative-first system. Feel free to message me with any questions about the game, the one-shot, or character creation!
