About the adventure

This is a safe space for all types of players, so gather your family/friends and let's play D&D! You've just finished a taxing adventure with your comrades and have settled down for a nice, uneventful meal in the local tavern when suddenly, the doors burst open and you're approached by a frantic sheep with...is that a scroll in its mouth? It seems this ordinary-looking sheep is particularly focused on your group and as you assess the situation, you quickly realize this sheep is on a mission and it needs your help! This one shot adventure is for level 5 characters, and while it can be quite quirky at times (expect some pretty baaa'd puns), "ewe" will definitely be challenged by your foes!

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players will need an account (free or paid, but free is sufficient) on: -Roll20.net for maps, - (optional) DnDBeyond.com with a D&D 5e character built to specifications below, - (only for DnDBeyond users) the Beyond20 extension so the character sheet will communicate with Roll20, -Zoom with video/audio capabilities, and -Discord, to communicate with the other players and the GMs before and after the session. Basic knowledge of D&D 5e and your character's abilities and features is highly recommended for optimized play time.

What I provide

Katie will provide necessary maps, lore, adventure, and story hooks, and she will help with "the rules" of the game (though they're more like guidelines to keep things consistent and fair). Preparing an epic adventure takes time, attention to detail, and planning. So. Much. Planning. As your game master, I do research, manage scheduling, and put together encounters, maps, stories, and sometimes even ready-to-play characters. I have to know how to play all of the creatures/characters you encounter, "the rules" of the game, the story and lore, AND have backup plans for my backup plans. It's quite a lot of work, but my players are worth it. 
 I encourage role playing and character voices, and use safety tools like the "X-card" and "lines and veils" to ensure that everyone is having fun. I welcome questions and feedback regarding the adventure content--yes, I will keep secrets and plan for big reveals, but your choices determine the outcomes just as much, if not more than, the dice.

Gameplay details

This adventure will take place in/near a village , so you shouldn't expect your character to have to "hoof" it around the countryside. When creating or importing your character, please be sure to arrive ready to play at level 5. (See "character creation" for more info.) Katie's table strives to be inclusive of all types of players and everyone is expected to keep their "Plays Well With Others" badge on at all times. ;-) The number one goal is to have fun creating and interacting with a fantastical collaborative story! Players should work together, not against each other, and be prepared to share the spotlight. RPG Safety tools are readily available to use if necessary (X-card, lines/veils, communication with DM, breaks, etc.). They are there if you need them, and if you don't need them, please be respectful of those who might. Gameplay will include theatre of the mind, battle maps on roll20, and in-character role-play opportunities. The GM will present the obstacles and details and the players will respond and interact.

How will character creation work

Players will need to choose from one of the pre-built characters available OR create their own characters and import/export them to the game in Roll20. We will be playing at level 5, so plan to be leveled up before we begin. If assistance is needed, contact the DM directly. DnDBeyond can be used, as long as you have enabled the Beyond20 extension, which will send your rolls to our game in Roll20. DM table rules for character creation: each player starts with 750gp (there can be an opportunity to shop at the beginning if needed), 1 healing potion, and when rolling for HP at each level, I allow you to accept the average HP if you happen to roll LESS than the average (more HP means you might live a little longer if I don't pull my punches). ;-) Characters can choose one common or uncommon magical item OR one +1 weapon.
