    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Roll your dice, some sort of microphone, and patience. I believe in the rules, but am not above altering them for RP and flavor of combat. For example, if you want to create a wall of stone as a platform jutting out from the side to walk on like a bridge, I would allow it. No software is required. Your own dice is required. Character sheet necessary.

    What I provide

    I will have additional characters for the players to use if they do not have a character they are interested in. I will have maps and potentially combat music playing throughout combat. Potentially homebrew magical items may be provided.

    Gameplay details

    This game is set up as a one-shot. Any character deaths are not permanent and have no baring on other stories. This is a purely combat oriented session. There will potentially be descriptive deaths of monsters, mentions of blood, mentions of death, and slaying monsters.

    How will character creation work

    The characters can come in at varying levels. A one-on-one session can be arranged to create a character, but having a character already created is optimal. This set of one-shots will require players to possess characters prior to game start. If you do not have a character sheet, the DM will randomly provide one to you.
