Dragon Heist: Factions

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord

Dungeons & Dragons 5e


About the adventure

Approached by Volo (of 'Guide to Monsters' fame) in the famed Yawning Portal tavern of Waterdeep, the City of Splendours, the party is set the task of rescuing a minor noble. Later, after being roped into managing the renovation and reopening of a ruined tavern, the street battles of rival gangs and the machinations of rival political forces lead you towards influencing some of the most important events along the Sword Coast! A highly modified version of the Waterdeep: Dragon Heist campaign that includes all the antagonist factions, and the PCs performing heists against a selection of them, depending on the allegiances they choose to pursue.

Additional Details

How to prepare

A microphone is absolutely necessary, along with Discord. Knowing the rules is a plus; knowing the Forgotten Realms setting is also a plus - neither are necessities, if you're happy to learn as we go. I'm more than happy for people to use their own dice rolling mechanic - whether that be actual dice, or on a computer.

What I provide

I'll bring the DM :)

Gameplay details

Prior to the game, a link to a google form asking for triggers, lines/veils etc will be sent around; the results will be discussed in Session 0, along with how the game will run, all my house rules, and then an overview of the game. Afterwards, we'll talk about character creation.

How will character creation work

Characters start at level 1; they can be hosted anywhere by the player (happy for anything from D&D Beyond to Google Docs); I'd like discussion at Session 0 on what people are looking to play, to make sure all characters can work together and with which faction.

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Low
  • Roleplay: High
  • Puzzles: Low
  • Experience Level: Open to all
