Free One-Shot - Theater of the Mind on Google Meets
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Theater of the Mind
About the adventure
Theater of the Mind provides a relaxing and immersive gaming experience without the struggle and distraction of messing with additional software that glitches and slows down your machine. You can play with me on your phone if you like! Video is optional. Bring a friend and have a blast together! This is an opportunity to get to know me as a GM and connect with other players and have fun doing it. I will present a new one shot each week. Some are my own creations and some will be adapted from the talented creators at DMs Guild and other sources. (I will let you know where you can get them for your own table if you are interested in doing so.) All of my one-shots take place in the Forgotten Realms setting using official characters and classes. No customization, homebrew or UA are permitted. I will send you a link to the DnDBeyond campaign for this one-shot when you sign up. Please have your character completed using standard array and ready to go at least 12 hours before start time so that I can review them and see what I'm working with. If you have any questions, please ask well ahead of time. You may contact me through startplaying.games or via Discord
How to prepare
We will communicate via Google Meets. If you have a Google account, you just need to follow the link on your computer. If you are using a phone or Android or Apple device, you will need to get the Google Meets app as well as the DnDBeyond character sheet app. You will need a microphone to communicate but a camera is optional. Please have your character created and attached to the DnDBeyond campaign that I provide you at registration. We will use the DnDBeyond dice roller, unless you prefer to roll your own dice. If you need help with any of this, please let me know at the time of registration and I will talk to you one on one to make sure you are good to go. I cannot provide personal assistance less that 12 hours before game start time.
What I provide
I will provide several visuals as well as detailed verbal descriptions for this theater of the mind experience.
All of my games are PG-13 and themes of sexual assault and child abuse and roleplay of sexual interactions are not permitted. All language must be kept safe for work. You are likely to encounter explicit depictions of violence, murder, fire, animal and insect attacks, swarms and infestations, being trapped underground, in water, drowning and falling. You may experience mention of kidnapping, torture, genocide, stalking, war. If at any time you are uncomfortable with the way the game is going, I urge you to ask for a "Pause" and we will stop and rethink the direction we are going. I urge all my players to speak with me directly if you have any concerns or are uncomfortable or just not having fun for any reason. I will make time to speak with you privately.

How will character creation work
Please create your characters ahead of time using the DnDBeyond campaign link I will provide you upon registration. I do not permit homebrew, UA or customization for one-shots. Only official races and classes from Forgotten Realms and setting agnostic books are permitted. Please use standard array to create your 3rd level characters and connect them to the DnDBeyond campaign at least 12 hours before start time. If you need help creating your character, please let me know at the time of registration and I will meet with you privately ahead of time to get you sorted.
