    About the adventure

    "Khitan cares. I literally cannot stress this enough. Highly, highly recommended." - Bones GM reel: πŸŒ‡ Survive the dangers of Drakkenheim βš”οΈβ€‹ Fight the horrors that haunt the city πŸ•·οΈβ€‹ Take on the factions vying for power πŸ‘₯ Hold tight to your humanity! Here's a sneak peek: _______________________________________ "So you want to explore the city of Drakkenheim, eh? You're ready to carve your way into the ruins, slashing and burning everything that steps in front of you? Listen to me kid: pack your backpack and go back! If you're not killed by horrible abominations, you will be corrupted by the Haze, mutated by the Delerium, or driven crazy by the sheer horror that fills this damned city! Not to talk about the trouble you'll get yourself into with the factions. Do yourself a favor and go home. What? You're still here? You're either incredibly brave or incredibly foolish. But we need both kinds here in Drakkenheim. Come with me kid, I might have a job for you." ________________________________________ Welcome to Drakkenheim, a character-driven campaign that will span from levels 1 to 13. Using Emberwood Village as your base camp, you will mount expeditions into the dangerous ruins of the city, trying to go deeper and deeper in search of knowledge, treasure, and answers. Different factions vie for power in the city, and it's up to you to choose your allies and survive your enemies. You will need to tread carefully. The Factions will be gunning for you and if you're not careful, you'll find yourself surrounded by enemies. Allies are few and precious in the City of the Damned! So come and test your mettle. The fate of Drakkenheim is in your hands!

    Gameplay details

    Drakkenheim is a very dark adventure, to which I'll put an even darker spin. There will be violence, gore, and suffering. The above content warnings will be present but most of them can be discussed and cut from the adventure if they make you uncomfortable. We will use a host of safety tools to make sure that everyone feels safe in the game. Before starting you will be asked to compile a form with your lines and veils, the things you don't want to appear in the game, and during the game we will use X/N/O cards, bleed, debriefing and aftercare, to make sure that the tone of the adventures is acceptable for everybody. We will also use Stars and Wishes, a tool to give feedback to your GM, to ensure that your desires are met. My tables are friendly and inclusive and I will do my best to accommodate your needs.

    How will character creation work

    ♦️​ Characters will start at Level 1. ♦️​ Everyone can choose between point buy, standard array or rolled stats (4d6, drop the lowest). Player's choice. ♦️​ Average hit points. ♦️​ Standard Equipment ♦️​ Characters will have a starting feat, even if they're not variant humans. ♦️​ Classes and Races can be from any Wizards of the Coast sourcebook. A D&D Beyond campaign with content sharing will be provided. ♦️​ If you really, really, really want to play a homebrew race or subclass, we can talk about it. I prefer official material, but we're all here to have fun. Show me what you'd like and I'll consider it. Due to limitations of D&D Beyond, homebrew full classes are not permitted.

    Players can expect

    • Combat/Tactics: High
