About the adventure

In a damp and musty prison cell, you wake, surrounded by other prisoners. A secondary glance lets you know these are no ordinary prisoners, the smell of sea spray wafts through the bars high above, a speck of light beyond. You are in the Crag, the Royal prison of Ibernyka, the sole continent of this world, or so they say. Said to house the most dangerous villains of your time, the people who dare rise against the crown and defy the laws of the High King, still following the rules of old before the last great war 100 years past. They say no one ever leaves once they descend those stone steps into the belly of the Crag itself, will you listen to them or challenge them? The choice is yours prisoner.

How to prepare

Please bring an notebook, you can use physical dice or a dice roller app if you prefer, you will need a mic, webcam is a plus (cause immersive facial expressions are great) but not necessary, you are welcome to use a fillable character sheet either as a pdf or through DnDBeyond or Roll20 if you prefer, equally if you're a notetaker like myself and like scribbling things down on a physical sheet please do.

How will character creation work

Characters will begin at level 7, you can have characters created beforehand and we can discuss in session 0 or if you have no idea or a loose idea we can build on that in session 0. Multiclassing is great, if you wish to include homebrew items or something for narative flavour I am always open to discussion and please make use of the open door policy, there will be a discord server set up for the game, including channels for character art and puzzle work.
