About the adventure

This is designed to be a beginner level one-shot to introduce new players to the Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition system. With several combat encounters as well as plenty of opportunities for role play if you choose to engage with them, this game has a little bit for everybody. Depending on your play style this game can range pretty far in duration, it all depends on you. A group of strangers are tasked with escorting a mysterious package through the woods and under a mountain in the hopes of stopping a war. Do you have what it takes to reach your destination alive?

Additional Details

How to prepare

A mic will be required for communication, as will a discord and Roll20 account(paid subscription not required) Maps and dice rolling will be available through Roll20, but players are free to use their own dice if they wish.

What I provide

I will be using my own dice for the majority of rolls, but for big moments I will use the Roll20 roller. All the maps will be digital through Roll20, and as mentioned before PDFs of premade characters can be provided if needed which the player would be free to keep

Gameplay details

At any point if a player is uncomfortable or needs a break, they can send me a private message or say something to the whole group as they are comfortable. There will be no judgement or penalty for taking breaks as needed. After the session is over, I will hold some time to debrief with the players as a whole group as well as request Stars and Wishes from players, which they are free to voice in the whole group or privately with me. This game is designed to be very flexible and the combat to role play ratio can easily be adjusted as we play in accordance with player wishes

How will character creation work

This is a level 1 game. Players are welcome to come with prepared characters before hand, but there can be some time dedicated at the beginning to help new players with character creation as needed. This should only take a few minutes per player. I also have some premade character sheets I can share as a pdf of players would prefer to jump straight into the game, but don’t have the time/ability to create a character beforehand
