Additional Details

How to prepare

Have discord. I'll send you a link to a discord server through here before the game. If you want to get a little familiar with the system ahead of time, feel free to watch my How to Play Cortex Prime video, but it isn't required.

What I provide

Premade characters, and some light-hearted, silly fantasy fun.

Gameplay details

This game is meant to be friendly to all aged, though especially young players might struggle with learning the system a bit. In the discord group, I will be asking folks to let me know about and Lines and Veils ahead of time (Lines being content you are not ok with being in the game at all, veils being content you are ok with so long as it is "off screen"). The game should not contain any uncomfortable material, but I want to make sure everyone feels welcome! Ahead a time, I will ask that if there are younger players, we watch our language and discussion of adult content. And no matter who is attending, I will not tolerate racism, anti-lgbtq+ talk, or overt rudeness. We're here to have fun at a welcoming table.

How will character creation work

The characters are premade! You'll get to chose from an Elf Fighter, a Goblin Wizard, a Human Cleric, and a Catfolk Rogue. Make them your own as far as RP, but this is just a short tutorial one-shot, so no pressure.
