About the adventure

Ageless, dark and hidden. An elemental evil stirs. It will scorch the world with wildfire, break the plates of continents , hurricanes will rage tearing the face of the landscape and tsunamis will devour what is left. That is, unless, YOU, the heroes, stop it first. This campaign will take you from levels 1 to 15 and so is absolutely beginner friendly. Set in a large sandbox area rich with ancient ruins, old secrets and dangerous creatures, magic items can be found easily for those with the skill and determination to do so. Bolster your armoury, gain your allies and weaken your foes, before delving into the darkness to strike at the heart of that which threatens to destroy everything. If you are looking for a campaign with a ton of opportunities to dive into roleplay and combat, as well as discover lots of interesting magic items, then jump in!

What I provide

Additionally I will provide official maps on Roll20, as well as a ton of bespoke self made maps. I will also be providing new magic items from the Griffons Saddlebag books 1 and 2 to add some items into the mix that you may have not seen before. And lastly, I will bring all the energy I can to make sure you have an amazing time developing your character and enjoying the adventure.

Gameplay details

Players can expect a narrative driven experience initially that then breaks out into a large area to explore. What the party prioritises from that point will drive the story and the events to come. Tons of roleplay opportunities and varied combat from a huge range of enemy types. We will go through lines and veils in session 0 to make sure all players are comfortable with what they will face during the campaign.

How will character creation work

In session 0, I will set out the campaign details for the party and we will go through initial character creation together. However we don't want to reveal everything about our characters, so I will work with each player individually the week before session 1 to finalise backstory details that you can choose to reveal as and when during the campaign. Character creation will happen on DNDBeyond. I will provide the following shared resources for people to use. Player's Handbook Princes of the Apocalypse SCAG XGTE EGTW TCOE VRGTR FTOD S:ACOC MOTM All of this content will appear for you to use when you join the campaign on D&D beyond, and can be used in character creation.
