About the adventure

Step right up, heroes, to the twisted delights of the Revelia Carnival, guided by the ominous Ringmaster Heckna! Prepare for an enchanting journey through the shadows, where mischievous wonders await. Don't be fooled by the playful façade, for within this carnival lies a touch of darkness, a hint of mystery. Join us, brave adventurers, as we unveil the secrets that dance beneath the moonlight. Embrace the thrill, for the Revelia Carnival welcomes you with open arms. Come and play in this sugar soaked, calliope cursed campaign of hilarious heroic horror. Alliteration aside, this theatre of the mind play experience will be full of laughs, groans and epic encounters. Play will take characters from 1st-10th level, and will focus on what our heroes will do to escape, destroy or join Heckna. Lets play to find out! The Revelia welcomes you!

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players will need a mic, as well as access to Discord. Video is preferred, but not necessary. Take some time to independently consider your Lines and Veils. Horror gaming can be a blast, but only really works when all participants take the time to figure out what they want in their game.

What I provide

All digital assets will be provided for play. We will use a Discord channel to catalogue NPC's, store notes on adventures, and discuss the goings on of the Revelia.

Gameplay details

We will go over Lines and Veils as part of session 0, and revisit this throughout play to recalibrate things for the best play experience. Communication is key, so please reach out to me with anything that comes up before, during, or after play.

How will character creation work

Pre-generated characters are available. For players who want to create their own characters, we will get together ahead of their first play session to get it worked out. Heckna's carnival exists between all worlds, so heroes can really come from anywhere.
