About the adventure
The Great Plague was a disastrous pestilence that killed untold numbers of people of Middle Earth. An evil wind from the East coincided with a Shadow deepening in Mirkwood and the reappearance of evil things. With the passing of the Great Plague, strife and war stalk the land. Kingdoms weakened by disease hold the line against onslaughts from Corsairs, Hillfolk, and the Angmarim, while the orcs build strength in vast warrens. The Elves bide in their shrouded havens. It is a time of trouble, but also a time of heroes. Would you be one?
How to prepare
Optimally, players should be minimally conversant of Roll20 and Discord. I can also run things on Zoom or Hangouts. Players should show up with a willingness to help create a story. Dice are nice, but not required. Something to take notes with is always a smart thing to have. A character concept would be good, maybe even a picture!
What I provide
As the sessions will all be virtual, I will be bringing my expertise, skills, and talents!
Dungeon World is a PbtA game with the base mechanic of 2d6+mod, with complete success a 10+, marginal success 7-9, and failure on a 6-. PCs are at large in the vast sandbox of Middle Earth, late Third Age (before the events of The Hobbit/LotR). Count on combat, exploration, and lore aplenty!

How will character creation work
Character generation will happen in the first 20 min of Session One. PCs are 1st level, and I have a stack of pre-generated characters if you want to jump right in! Players can always bring their own 1st level DW characters, subject to GM approval.
Players can expect
- Combat/Tactics: Medium
- Roleplay: High
