In the Wake of the Storm King
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Roll20
About the adventure
Storm King's Thunder, now with even more political intrigue! Using the Storm King's Thunder campaign module from Wizards of the Coast, this 5e campaign will offer a more robust narrative surrounding the various factions as well as the lords of Waterdeep. The giants have thrown the land into chaos. Powerful and Opportunistic lords seek to use the chaos to their own ends. Will you play their pawn, or flip the table?
How to prepare
Players must have an active Roll20 and Discord account. They must have a microphone and network access to stream audio consistently. Prior to Session 0, players must join the hosted Discord and Roll20 game, adjust any needed settings, and provide a backstory. All rolls will be performed in Roll20 (or Discord if needed)
What I provide
All available Sourcebooks for 5e are provided through my account on Roll20.
This game will intertwine the high adventure of Storm King's Thunder with opportunities for political intrigue and noir style missions. Your expeditions out from Waterdeep will consist of travel to fantastical places with traditional elements of combat, dungeons, and loot. Your time between expeditions will be more focused on role-play as you navigate the court of the lords of Waterdeep. Content Warning: Violence and mild Gore. Prohibited Content: Sexual Violence and Harassment does not exist in my game's world. It is neither a weapon to be used nor a narrative beat. With Discord's ability to privately message, I prefer the Line/Veil safety tools during game. Session 0 will consist of discussion of code-of-conduct as well as any triggers or concerns raised privately to me by any players.

How will character creation work
Character creation will be done through Roll20 with all source options provided by me the DM. The characters will be developed before Session 0, to provide an opportunity to introduce them during that session. Players are encouraged to discuss their characters with me. For players new to D&D or Roll20, a free informal session will be provided to assist them with the process. All Adventurer's League options are available without prior approval. All Variant rules for character creation detailed in the Players Handbook are also available without prior approval. For "standard array" and "point buy", players may complete that portion on their own. For players that wish to roll stats, that will be done in front of the whole group at session 0 using Roll20.
