How to prepare

You will need a mic (and most likely a headset) and a discord account. Games will be held using FoundryVTT for the tabletop and we will voice chat on my private Discord server; a foundry link will be provided to you. You will need a copy of your character sheet on dndbeyond or in Foundry. If using beyond, a shareable link to your sheet must be provided to me before you can play. You will need to join my Discord server and get the Foundry link from me. Please ensure that you communicate with me before the game, with as much time to prepare as possible.

How will character creation work

Create your characters prior to your first session. If you need help I can provide an hour tutorial for $10. Characters begin at level 3 using the standard point buy (27) or array. You may use any options from the sourcebooks below, noting that options from some books require DM approval. You may take any mundane equipment your character has proficiency to use regardless of cost (including full plate, kits and tools). Your players are competent adventurers, so you can assume they have gear. Each character begins the game with a single healing potion and one uncommon magic item from the sources below. Allowed Sourcebooks: Players Handbook Dungeon Master Guide* Xanathar's Guide to Everything Mordenkeinen's Tome of Foes Volo's Guide to Monsters Mordenkainen's Monsters of the Multiverse Tasha's Cauldron of Everything Wild Beyond the Witchlight Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide Fizban's Treasury of Dragons Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft* Tortle Package * - With DM approval (No Eberron, Wildemount, MTG, AI, or Rick and Morty) If unsure if an option is available, please ask.
