About the adventure

Pastoria - The great frontier. Rumored to be a source of a rare mineral with magical properties called firestone, thought to contain magic properties. Raptor-riding dino-ranchers, downtrodden Industrites yearning for a better life have rushed to colonize the area at the turn of the century, only to find they were not alone. The Pastorian Natives are fae creatures, halflings, and humans that have inhabited the land for generations. They have a deep connection to the Old Magics and feel like the newcomers are disrespecting thier land and way of life. The two groups are locked in conflict, with no compromise in sight.

Additional Details

How to prepare

I will provide a world document. Prepare by reading that for inspiration. You can either create a character in advance (level 3), or use one of my pre-generated characters for this world. I will provide everything else.

What I provide

D&D Beyond for character/campaign management access to a Discord server with dice roller bots, and custom battle maps presented with Owlbear Rodeo.

Gameplay details

All these themes are on a sliding scale and we will adjust them as needed based on the comfort of the players. This will be a 1-2 session mini-campaign. We will be starting at level 3. You can make a character ahead of time on D&D Beyond, or play one of several pre-generated characters.

How will character creation work

You can bring a character of your own, built to level 3, OR you can use a pre-generated character. We won't have time to do full character creation in the game itself, but I will provide a world document in advance and have an open door prior to the game to discuss character ideas. You will be rewarded with inspiration if you tie your character backstory into the lore from the world document.
