About the adventure

Come aboard, as we set sail for an adventure of a lifetime: šŸŒŠ A hidden enemy plots to sweep coastal cities! šŸ˜ˆ Cultists have infiltrated the government! šŸ¤·šŸ»ā€ā™€ļø Nobody suspects a thing ā” Can you stop the tide of chaos and destruction? ========================== Nestled on an ocean coast is Stilben, a sleepy town "lovingly" nicknamed the Rotted Lot. Unbeknownst to its inhabitants, this swampy port sits on the precipice of destruction. Two crime syndicates vie for power, and the townsfolk are too busy looking the other way. No-one sees that, beneath the waves, an unseen threat gathers, plotting to destroy coastal cities of Exandria in the name of a mad Betrayer god, the Chained Oblivion. And Stilben is the first on the list... ========================== What to expect: šŸ”¹ Compelling, high-stakes story with you at its center šŸ”¹ Exhilarating combat against cunning foes šŸ”¹ Breathtaking exploration in ocean environments šŸ”¹ Shared spotlight and plenty of room for roleplay and character development šŸ”¹ One-of-a-kind magic items that grow with your character šŸ”¹ Passionate and experienced Gamemaster ========================== The adventure goes to level 13. The campaign is set in Exandria ā€” a lovingly crafted, diverse and welcoming setting featured in The Legend of Vox Machina and Critical Role. No prior familiarity with either is required: anyone will feel at home here. The story is split into two arcs with an overarching motive, accommodating both short- and long-term players. Join us in the fight for the future of the world!! ========================== šŸŒŸ What do players say about my games? ā—† "TL;DR: 10/10!" ā€” Belmont ā—† "What really struck me about Danil is how professional he was in all the ways you want a GM to be" ā€” Alex ā—† "The stories he weaves are genuinely easy to connect with and fascinating" ā€” Manish ā—† "Danil puts a lot of effort into his game and it shows...Easily the best GM I've had when it comes to presentation" ā€” Demi ā—† "Dedicated and methodical, and most of all, smart, able to think on his feet and adapt to players actions in a constructive way" ā€” Carlos
