How to prepare

* Make sure you have Discord, *access to your Character Sheet if ready, and *a way to roll dice You can do your own research and look up the D&D Mythic Odysseys of Theros character options, if you are more experienced with character making (message me for help!) For brand new players, I strongly suggest asking me to make a character for you, as filling out a character sheet on your first session is very overwhelming. It's no big deal if you want to: I asked my DM to do that the first few times before I made my first character! I’ll ask you easy questions, and I’ll do the paperwork from there!

What I provide

A hard-copy of the book "Mythic Guide to Theros" which I'll be using, along with the PHB, XGE, and EE extra materials and rule books.

What else should you know

It's going to be mostly an over voice conversation, with text to help keep record of things. This could possibly be your first step into the living setting which is maintained by me and a few other DMs: something that could get quite popular! EXTRA TEASER ABOUT THE SETTING: *Gods* The Piety system is introduced in Theros’ setting. The world spins around the actions of the undisputed gods: beings well known to be real and interact with the world on a daily basis. These gods, if you choose to worship them, can give you rewards/blessings/powers/gifts without needing to be a Cleric, Paladin, or Druid. Gain favor with your deity of choice among the *Fifteen* (15!) different deities that create Theros’ Pantheon, by appealing to your god’s interest. *Monsters* Harpies, chimera, hydras and nymphs are just some of the creatures in the world of Theros: monsters of incredible size and ability await! Eventually, you might grow in strength to fight a mystic monster: an incredibly hard battle against a being of legendarily horrific deeds. *Quests* Accept quests from deities to slay monsters, complete trials, foil plans and the like: the gods tend to have a list of what needs to be done in the mortal realm through various champions. Accept, and expect the god’s approval! Refuse, and expect the god’s ire! Other beings in this world also have quests to be filled, if you are up to those as well: anything from finding a lost dog, to slaying a kraken plaguing the coastal city.

Gameplay Details

MECHANICS OF PLAY: > BOOKS SUGGESTED (Digital or on-hand) Player’s Handbook Mystic Odysseys of Theros Xanathar’s Guide to Everything > CHARACTER CREATION - We will be using D&D 5e rules, with the Core Player’s Handbook for Classes, Subclasses, Backgrounds, core Rules, and the Human Race option. - Subclasses from Xanathar’s Guide to Everything are acceptable too. - Non-human Races will include the Races from the Mystic Odysseys of Theros book: Centaurs, Leonin, Minotaur, Sayty, or Triton. - Please do not use Races such as Elfs and Dwarfs that are non-native to this realm. The restrictions are in place to make transition from one Dungeon Master to another easier, not to restrict Player creativity. - I’d love to discuss and help you flesh out your character idea from a skeleton to a three-dimensional character!! Further details and questions about character creation will be answered by me if asked! Materials (such as information from the MOT book, or rules on character abilities) can be digitally provided if requested. For brand new players, I strongly suggest asking me to make a character for you, as filling out a character sheet on your first session is very overwhelming. No shame: I asked my DM to do that the first few times before I made my first character! I’ll ask you easy questions, and I’ll do the paperwork from there! > WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT - A level 1 mini campaign that should take four sessions — including the first — to conclude. - What you will do in-game will vary slightly from DM to DM, but I personally love Character Development and Creativity in and out of Combat. You can expect both challenging fights and solid character moment opportunities. - You are NOT expected to be a fully-fleshed voice actor that never slips out of character: I know I’m not! This is first and foremost, something we all do for FUN. If you aren’t comfortable with doing a voice, no pressure. - LET OTHERS TALK. It’s something I want to be better about: having the person in the center of the spotlight take a break, and let someone else in the party shine! Each Player in the party should feel their opinion and voice matters, so be cautious and considerate. It’ll only improve gameplay for all. - Experience-wise, this mini-campaign is open to brand new TTRPG Players: I’ll be teaching the basics quickly, but I will go over things multiple times during actual play, as I feel it makes more sense in the moment. - For those more experienced, don’t worry: I’ll provide something for you and others to occupy your time with, while working with the newer players.

How Will Character Creation Work

This will be the character creation session, where characters will be made at level 1, but is possible to ask for a pre-made character sheet to look over while the others develop theirs.
