About the adventure

Sometimes tradgey is born out of a collection of kindnesses. A one armed man named Larry has put out a notice for brave adventurers in hunting a dragon. The notice is light on details and merely states that those who wish to apply should meet by the town dry docks at sunset. Howdy! Welcome to this little one shot. I run rp heavy games and this little game involves some heavy themes of a child in trouble. The game takes place in the town of Keybury and your band of level 5 adventures accept this job. Because what else do heros do when dragons are about?

How to prepare

You will require a few things before the game * A working mic * A finished character * A roll 20 account (it's free to make) *A discord account (it's also free) * This is optional but very beneficial, a dnd beyond account (you can make one for free and as long as you join the campaign link you will have access to all my materials for character creation)

What I provide

I will bring * A discord server link that will help us communicate * A roll 20 campaign that will help with play * Maps made from incarnate * Access to a dnd beyond campaign that provides you a tool for character creation that simplifies the process, with access to a large amount of character creation options

Gameplay details

Players can at any time DM me over discord for lines and veils purposes. A safety doc is posted in it's own channel in the discord for your safety and well-being, if something is not on the list that you would like to be, message me and I will add it no questions asked.

How will character creation work

Character creation will occur at the players pace. As soon as you join the discord a link to the roll 20 will be provided in the "Dragons Despair" general chat. Use that roll 20 to roll stats as I can check the log and verify it. You will be rolling stats, 4d6 drop lowest one, reroll 1's, seven times and keep the best six for your stats. As a level five character you will have 500 gold to spend on mundane equipment and one uncommon magic item of your choice. Help is available for those new to dnd, I can work with you and suggest purchases should you find yourself overwhelmed. Character creation is due before game start with either a roll 20 character sheet or dnd Beyond character sheet.
