About the adventure

What awaits you in game? So much... Choose a supernatural gift that sets you on the path of destiny, align yourself with one of Theros’s fifteen gods, then carve a tale of odysseys and ordeals across the domains of mortals, gods, and the dead. What legends will you challenge—mighty heroes, inevitable prophecies, or titans imprisoned by the gods? Where will destiny and immortal schemes lead you? And what tales will you leave behind, celebrated in the pantheon of myths and writ among the eternal stars? Receive a supernatural gift from the gods, a set of special traits that mark your character for greatness. Select one of the new races for your character—such mythic peoples as the Leonin or a Satyr. New subclasses include the Bard’s College of Eloquence, masters of oratory; and the Paladin’s Oath of Glory, an affirmation of destiny laid out for you by divine providence. Encounter mythic monsters, creatures whose power and renown are such that their names are truly living myths. More than simply legendary, these creatures have abilities that will create a challenge fit for the gods. Wield god-weapons, signature items of the gods that allow your character to stand apart from other heroes. These can be a gift from your deity or perhaps you boldly stole it from them in a bid for ultimate power.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Make sure you are set up with roll20 and Discord. We will play in roll 20 and use discord for chat. You will need a reliable internet connection and a way to send and receive sound. Please make sure your microphone and speakers are working well. I do not handle booking details after approving requests to join a game. Once you have joined my game you are responsible for cancelling an individual session or leaving the campaign should you chose to do so. I do not issue refunds for missed sessions or cancellations with less than 24 hours notice as I have already done work to onboard you and prepare your place at the session. For details on managing your participation in games and avoiding charges for sessions you don't attend, please see the following link. https://intercom.help/startplayinggames/en/articles/4620101-how-to-cancel-skip-or-leave-a-game

What I provide

Drama, humor, voices for the world you explore. All required materials on roll20 to run the game will be provided by me. We may also enjoy some music to enhance the mood of some scenes.

Gameplay details

You, the heroes will be able to explore your world and set course for adventures to serve your god, or fight against the desires of one or even all the gods. There are seas to sail, islands to explore and adventures which run from monster slaying, to politics, to mystery solving. Where things go is up to you as a group. You can be led by the gods of Theros as quest givers or enjoy exploration by sea as you find your own path. Content Warnings: Death, Loss, War, Madness, Divine Cruelty Towards Mortals. Safety Tools Used: X, N and O cards, Lines & Veils, Open Door and Stars & Wishes

How will character creation work

This campaign will start with second level characters. You may contact me before the first session to create your 1st level character and level it up to 2nd. As an alternate path to character generation, with a mini campaign taking you from 1st to 2nd level, consider starting your adventures in Theros with my fellow GM, Luc Demoulin. He offers a great "boot camp adventure" which is great for those new to D&D, the Theros setting, or both. You can join him for it here. https://startplaying.games/join-campaign/heros-of-theros-dd-5e-bootcamp-session-0-and-mini-campaign-1602953974271x433827184242065400
