A mic and a quiet place to play is all that is required. This game is open to all, so if you've never had experience with D&D before, you're welcome to join! When you sign up, I'll link you to my Discord server and we can discuss your character and hammer out any other details before the game.

How will character creation work

Characters will be 5th Level and be made in D&D Beyond (free account). Upon joining I'll invite you to my Beyond campaign and you'll have access to all the resources found in the 5e Player's Bundle. Ability scores are Standard Array or Point Buy, and we use Starting Equipment. If you already have a 5th level character, you can bring them in, or I can schedule an online meeting with you beforehand to help design a character. I also have pregens created for those who don't want to make their character or who join up last minute.
