The only hope for the world rests in the hands of daring adventurers that are willing to risk everything to stop the resurrection of the Queen of Evil Dragons. This campaign is for adventurers that want to brave fearsome foes in a long-lasting, thrilling journey that spans over the entire region of the Swordcoast. Defeating Tiamat and her draconic forces will be a true test of strength, requiring the cleverest ideas and the strongest of wills. Rise against shadowy cults, fiendish plots, and overcome overwhelming odds in a story that will shape the world forever. πŸͺΆ Venture across the immersive and scenic world of Dungeons and Dragons, with adventure and roleplay at the forefront of an engaging high fantasy experience.

Additional Details

How to prepare

A basic understanding of D&D 5e and your character's abilities will help make games run smoothly, of course I’m always willing to help players that are still learning how to play. Beyond that, players will only need to prepare the following: πŸ”Ή Good quality microphone πŸ”Ή Free accounts for both Roll20.net and Discord.com πŸ”Ή A mindset to support your fellow partymates and work together

What I provide

An excellently written adventure that ties in your character's personal backstory, premium quality maps and artwork, a well organized Discord server, a complete understanding of the system, an easily understandable set of House Rules, improvisational skills, and voice acting for NPCs.

Gameplay details

We will have a session zero using the Lines and Veils system to identify what topics to avoid. Players are also free to use an "X-Card" if they encounter something that hinders them from playing. I aim to provide a safe, inclusive environment. No behavior or language that makes other players feel unwelcome, unsafe, or unable to participate in the game will be tolerated. My games are relatively lighthearted, but sensitive topics may occasionally be mentioned as part of the background to the adventure. D&D is a combat heavy game, so expect a level of violence and gore, but nothing too graphic.

How will character creation work

Players may participate in a Session 0 for character generation, where I can help them make their characters or give suggestions on how to write their backstories. Most official resources canon to the Forgotten Realms will be available for character creation (homebrew available upon review), and characters also begin with a Lvl 1 "half feat", alongside their choice of various bonuses tailor made for my campaign. The use of Tasha's Custom Origins will not be featured.

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Medium
