About the adventure

In the city of Waterdeep rests a tavern called the Yawning Portal, named after the gaping pit in its common room. At the bottom of this crumbling shaft is a labyrinthine dungeon shunned by all but the most daring adventurers. Known as Undermountain, this dungeon is the domain of the mad wizard Halaster Blackcloak. Long has the Mad Mage dwelt in these forlon depths, seeding his lair with monsters, traps, and mysteries. To what end? That question is a constant source of speculation and concern.

Additional Details

How to prepare

I use Discord for voice chat to help speed things up. If you have a headset with a mic that is preferred, but not necessary.

What I provide

I have all the content for the campaign in Fantasy Grounds. As well as several extensions to help with players during character creation, leveling, and gameplay.

Gameplay details

This campaign has some darker themes, and a darker style humor. Younger players are not recommended, though not disallowed. I do use the XNO card system to help keep players from getting uncomfortable. And I am always approachable about anything that comes up.
