Additional Details

How to prepare

All you need is a microphone, D&D Beyond, Discord, and the AboveVTT plugin installed in their browser (I will be using Chrome). Discord invites will be sent out once your character has joined the campaign on D&D Beyond. Cameras are optional. A digital consent form will be sent to players and should be filled out before sessions zero.

What I provide

I will be running the one-shot on Above VTT and D&D Beyond, a Discord server for voice and video, and I will share the D&D source books I have available.

Gameplay details

This is an opportunity for players to try out playing level 20 characters against one of the most infamous villains in D&D lore. This will test even the most experienced players, but be fun enough for those who have never played high-leveled characters.

How will character creation work

Players will use D&D Beyond to create their characters. Guided help can be scheduled prior to the session upon request. A session zero to introduce the group will be scheduled prior to the one-shot. All characters will be allowed 3 attunable magical gear, items, or weapons. I can share my sourcebooks once you've joined the campaign. Legendary/Artifact magical items and custom items will require approval, but there are very few restrictions otherwise.
