    About the adventure

    Join us on a fantastic and whimsical romp through the jungles of Hot Springs Island where nothing is as it seems! We will face the oddities of fantasy together in this mysterious and deadly tropical pocket of space and time. Since Hot Springs Island is mostly built with randomization, I will be right beside you blazing a trail. Who will live and who will die? These are not questions for I, your Dungeon Master but rather a question for the island herself. May the island choose your fate!

    How to prepare

    You should come with the following: - a microphone and speakers/headphones of some kind. - pen and paper. (preferably multiple sheets of paper) - Dice. (If you have some) - a device that can power Discord online calls. - Discord Account If you do not have dice, I can roll for you!

    What I provide

    Since we will be playing online, I have everything we will need. I will supply a fun PDF as a tool to the players as well as dice for those who cannot.

    Gameplay details

    One could expect to join our lovely little discord chat and make a character on the spot. We will utilize 3d6 stat rolls. I expect character creation to take about 10 minutes as it will be very quick. I will share a PDF to the group that can be used as an in-game tool for all players. We will have a mechanic for time measurement. There will be no initiative and the game is of a high lethality difficulty. We will primarily use the D20 to complete checks and tests.

    How will character creation work

    We will be using a fluid class system based on your equipment. Wanna be a gun slinging swashbuckler? start collecting bullets and daggers! Wanna be a spell-chucking mage? Find a wand or a spellbook! We will roll 3d6 to get our 4 essential stats (HP, Physical, Mental, and Social). Your carry capacity will be based on the baggage of the character. You may have a backpack(6-10 item slots) and a satchel. (4 item slots). You may carry one or two items on hand separate from item slots. Your character will have a randomized equipment that ultimately defines your characters playstyle. You will get gold, a weapon, a random backpack, and armor upon your creation. You will also get one random item.
