    About the adventure

    Are you ready to become a hero of The Highlands? It's time to put on a kilt and take up your claymore! This 5E D&D campaign gives you the chance to explore wind-swept moors, forested glens, and haunted lochs, in a setting inspired by Scottish history and folklore. This is a beginner-friendly campaign, with a focus on roleplay, collaborative storytelling, and party cooperation. The Highlands are dangerous, and you'll need to work together with your fellow adventurers to survive. The campaign begins with a main quest and clear objectives, which can be completed in 5-7 sessions. However, the setting offers unlimited potential for further adventures, should players wish to continue beyond the initial storyline.

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    A basic understanding of the rules is encouraged; you can find all the core rules freely available on websites like DnDBeyond and Roll20, without having to purchase any books or digital materials. You must have a microphone to participate, and though camera use is encouraged, it's by no means essential. Ideally, you should also have a relatively stable internet connection, to avoid disconnections and lag.

    What I provide

    I will provide access to Foundry VTT, a dynamic virtual gaming platform that you can access through your browser. Foundry VTT provides audio and video, and allows me to share detailed and unique battle maps with you. I will also provide music and atmospheric effects to help with immersion.

    How will character creation work

    Characters will be created during an initial Session 0. If you wish to create a character in advance, that's great, but it's not essential. Any concerns or questions about character creation can be discussed with me in advance, via private messages, or addressed during the Session 0.
