Humblewood: Advance of the Scorch

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Roll20

Dungeons & Dragons 5e



About the adventure

In the world of Everden there lies a forest realm called Humblewood. Within this realm, the forestfolk live out their lives in relative peace, thriving on the compassion and care of others. However, recently, great fires have burned away at sections of the Wood, those who have survived these fires have been displaced, and compassion begins to run thin as all are faced with scarcity and the threat of a destroyed homeland. Could you be the ones to save the realm from these advancing flames and restore balance to the Wood? Humblewood is D&D 5e campaign setting where players take on the role of birdfolk and humblefolk (anthropomorphized forest creatures) to save their home from the advance of a strange phenomenon. This campaign goes from levels 1-5. **SESSION ZERO** The session 0 will be discounted to $5 a person and will involve a discussion of safety tools, world lore, and character creation (as the standard D&D races are not present in this world). If time allows, we will do a mock combat in order to test out character builds. [It is the player's responsibility to cancel via the dashboard if they are unable to make the session. A guide is here:] **This Campaign Will be Played Once every Two Weeks!**

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players will need a working microphone, a Roll20 account, and a Discord account.

What I provide

I will bring my knowledge of the campaign and system, Dynamic Lighting on Roll20, and enthusiasm for the game. I typically end the campaign with a gift, so at the end of the campaign, it is likely you will receive something related to your character- perhaps commissioned art or a physical memento of the campaign. All party members will have a custom character token created for use in the game!
