About the adventure

Are you looking for a fun adventure tailored specifically for this spooky and scary season? Join us! The Domains of Dread morph and bend on this magical night, allowing the portal to a small pocket dimension to open. Inside is a city teeming with terrible frights and horrendous monsters. From ghoulish crawling nightmares to deadly aberrations, there's no shortage of excitement and intrigue to welcome you back to the scariest time of the year! We will find our adventurers in the outskirts of the aforementioned city, and they will be expected to explore the unusual terrain, find and recruit off-putting allies, and fight off vicious enemies. This one shot will focus mainly on combat and puzzle solving. Whether you want to go in with your weapons drawn or arrive with diplomacy in mind, the choice is yours. I enjoy painting vivid scenes and settings. I love to roleplay, and any player is welcome to work with the story as much as they'd like. More details on the full setting will be given before the game begins— I don't want to ruin the surprise

Additional Details

How to prepare

No need! This game is a seasonal romp with a Dungeons and Dragons coat of paint! Come in your costume if you like.

What I provide

I will be using Roll20 for battle maps. Discord will be used for voice/video chat. I am an absolute nut for Halloween and fr Dungeons and Dragons! I will be giving this game a lot of preparation so everyone has a great and wonderful time.

Gameplay details

This one shot will focus on a more whimsical, monsteresque form of setting and characters The main warnings are: spiders eyeballs, clowns, rodents (such as rats and bats), potential harm to animals, potential body horror, and themes relating to horror. I will be avoiding scenarios that are gory overly grotesque, and/or sexual. The safety tools I will be involving the Lines and Veils route as well as open discussion. If anyone needs certain themes or parts of the setting removed, just message me. I am happy to listen to my players so I can deliver the best game for everyone. This is an LGBTQ+ and BIPOC safe space (I am pan), and I want everyone to feel welcome and accepted.

How will character creation work

I don't mind if anyone uses an existing character or if they wait until the one shot. I am happy to help with character creation. Just be aware that time for character creation takes away from the game itself.
