    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. [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. Experience with 5e and/or Roll20 is appreciated but not required. Dice will be rolled virtually. We will discuss during session zero whether cameras will be on or off during the game.

    What I provide

    I will bring my knowledge of the campaign and system, Dynamic Lighting & compendium sharing 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.
