Additional Details

How to prepare

- Have a working microphone, a DnD Beyond account, and access to - A working camera is highly recommended, and appreciated, but not necessary. - You may use either physical or digital dice!

What I provide

- Access to materials in DnD Beyond. I have most sourcebooks, but if I don’t have something that you want, I’ll gladly grab it. - Both digital battle maps, and an easy to use, low maintenance digital platform in Vorpal Board! - Fun and interesting NPCs, villains that you will love to hate, exciting combat encounters, intriguing adventures and, most of all, an understanding that your characters are a part of this world! Each and every character motivation and backstory will be integrated into the campaign, so that it occurs *around* you, not *in spite of* you! - A Discord server specifically for our group, so that we can chat about the game, and chat about other stuff, as well!

Gameplay details

The one thing that I focus on is running a table that is friendly, and safe. We’re all here to have fun, and that fun comes when we all enjoy each other’s company, and feel comfortable at the table. Everyone is welcome at my table, and everyone is safe at my table. Safety tools will always be in place so that everyone is comfortable with the subject matter and the topics. I am always available for my players to talk about things they may or may not be comfortable with, and I will always strive to ensure that my table is a safe, fun environment for everybody. In terms of the in-game gameplay, I strive to have a comfortable balance between combat and roleplay, with a leaning towards character-driven roleplay.
