Den of the Winter Wolf
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Foundry VTT
About the adventure
The winters in Northreach are always harsh and never forgiving but this year it is particularly worse in the town of Beruvik. The clan’s winter stores are looking to be less adequate as the days go by and the hunters are starting to be attacked more often by the White Wolf. Jarl Brand Einarsson has put out a reward for anyone brave enough to kill the White Wolf. Many dangers lie in wait for the unwary in Myrkvid Forest but none so fearsome as Rukdolf, the Winter Wolf. Few have seen him and lived to tell the tale and those who did have refused to enter the woods ever again. There have been attempts to hunt him and his pack down but no one has been able to come close. This, is where your tale begins.
How to prepare
Have a mic, a Foundry account (free) and do your best to remember important rules when they are told. You will not need to bring a pre-made character sheet or have your own dice. Roll20 provides it all, so just be ready to play and learn as you go. If you have a token or image that you want your character to look like, then just have it ready and let me know!
What I provide
The module for Den of the Winter Wolf will provide maps, tokens, and your character can have their own special token as well.
We will be using the Den of Winter Wolf module. The maps are done by professionals, so it will look pretty. All you need is a desire to play since there are pre-made characters, but if you have a character concept ready at the start of the session we can take time to quickly make your character. You will be as stated starting out on a simple job that doesn't end as any sane person would wish. Beyond this, it is up to you. There is a lot of lore in the world to discover and many monsters to slay. If you want to somehow befriend creatures, you might pull it off or end up fighting everyone and everything. The choice is as it should always be, up to you.

How will character creation work
You will all be level two and everything will be done on Foundry VTT. if you have DnD beyond you can use Beyond20 to transfer/use the character on Foundry VTT. If you use Beyond20 please give me a link to your character so I can see/observe them. I have not used Beyond20 however, so I would not be able to help guide you. If you want to make a character come with a concept, otherwise I have 44 pre-made characters for use. Tasha’s is only allowed if the other players are fine with it. (The main issue is power creep, but please please please do not pick a class that always uses a bonus action every turn in tashas. It slows down combat a lot.) Also, if you want to make a character or use skills use the i (compendium) on Foundry to find and drag over the desired item. It makes things easier but only holds basic phb stuff in it. To roll stats, roll 4d6 and drop the lowest (1+3+5+6=14).
