    About the adventure

    Empire of the Ghouls is an exciting campaign going from level 1 - 13. It was produced by Kobold Press as part of their Midgard system, a world based loosely off of European myth and physical geography. Dark Motives & Darker Alliances - Citizens of the free city of Zobeck are going missing! Catacombs beneath the streets may provide answers, but what lurks in them may not enjoy company… Who will uncover and stop the foul and ghoulish workings? Will your adventurers have the fortitude and ambition—or the greed and cunning—it takes to put a stop to them? The party will venture across the continent tracking the sinister plot. There will be plenty of opportunity for combat and interaction with the non player characters. Creative thinking will be rewarded. Characters will create their own characters using the standard array or the point buy system.

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Characters will need to create their own characters using regular options or MIdgard options. The DM will send a link to roll 20 which the players will use to sign up on roll 20. The DM will also send a discord link, so the players will have to be signed up for roll 20 and discord.

    What I provide

    I will send maps of the world of Midgard and some of the cities the places they visit.

    Gameplay details

    There will be combat, but also lots of opportunity for role play if the players choose. Advancement will be thru milestones. The players will be travelling to solve the mystery and interrupt the evil plot, so there will be outdoor encounters as well as the main plot. The story is very well developed but there is lots of room for innovation.

    How will character creation work

    Characters will create their own characters using the standard array or point buy. The DM will contact the players so that they can ask questions about character creation. Special Midgard races and class features will be available. The DM will create character sheets in roll 20 once the players have signed up on roll 20, but players are not required to use all of the roll 20 features.
