About the adventure

Deep in the Yatil Mountains lie the Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth, formerly occupied by the legendary archmage Iggwilv the Witch Queen. Though Iggwilv is long gone, her lair is anything but empty. Can you brave the threats within and find fortune before succumbing to danger? For 9th level characters. Part of the D&D 50th Anniversary Play Series available for free on D&D Beyond.

How to prepare

You will need: - working mic - Discord account (free) - web browser - D&D Beyond account (free) I would suggest using a computer to play, but if you can't use one, you can play via your phone as well. There may be some issues with the map app, but it is playable via phone. If there are issues during that time, I can move the map for you and you direct me where to move your token.

What I provide

I use VTT for maps and other visual handouts. I create tokens for you, or if you have your own, you can send it my way so I can set up the maps with your token! I do require D&D Beyond character sheets to be used as the rolls will be done through the character sheets. A D&D Beyond campaign link will be provided and almost all books will be available for character creation. I use Discord for voice chat. You'll join my server to play the game, and you can chat with others on there if you like! I do not use webcam, and I don't require players to do so either. I do character voices and use music to enhance the experience (you can turn off the music for yourself if you don't want it). I follow Rules as Written for the most part unless you come up with something really cool! All my sessions start you off with inspiration, and you get that inspiration to spend for the session.

Gameplay details

When you join the game, I will send you a link to a consent checklist Google Form. Please fill it out and let me know when you've done so either through private message on StartPlaying or on my Discord server. The X, N, and Os are digital and are available through the maps app I will be using (Owlbear Rodeo). I will go over how to use it when we start the session. There will be a 5-10 minute break halfway through the session (around the 2 hour mark). We can use that break to check in with everyone as well as get a snack, restroom break, etc. If people need another break, it can be added!

How will character creation work

You can either make a character or bring an existing character that is level 5-10. If Making a Character: Create a character using D&D Beyond (campaign link will be given when you join the one-shot). - All official Wizards of the Coast books are useable for character creation and picking magic items. - Start at level 9 - set HP to fixed - Stats are point buy using 27 points - Choose starting equipment, and take the money from your background - You also start with an additional 500 gp, 2 rare, 3 uncommon, and 4 common magic items. If bringing an existing character: - No homebrew can be used for this session. That includes classes, subclasses, and races. So if your existing character has any homebrew classes/race, I do ask you to change your character. If there are homebrew items, they cannot be used in this one-shot. - If you don't have at least 500 gp, up your money to that total. - If you don't have at least 2 rare, 3 uncommon, and/or 4 common magic items, you can add that to your character. - If your character isn't on D&D Beyond, I do need the character to be on there for setting up encounter calculations. I can walk through with you to make the character on the site if you need help! You can spend any money before the session, and if you want to summon things/use magic before the session, you can do so. If you'd like to sell some of your starting equipment before the game begins, it sells for half price. If you need any help with character creation, please let me know and direct message me via Discord or on here!
