About the adventure

Are you looking to play Dungeons and Dragons but not sure where to start? In this 1 hour session we will created a new character for D&D 5E using Fantasy Grounds. Do you want to fight with a sword? Cast fantastical spells? Heal your allies or charm your way by song? We will talk about that and tailor your character around you. Once your character is made we will go through the basics of how to play D&D as well as how to use fantasy grounds. Skilled players who have made characters with me are welcome to join this session to create new characters or level up their characters. This character creation session is tied into my D&D games, after you are done creating a character you can join one of my Twilight Hunters Guild sessions to hunt monsters and capture foes for a bit of coin. The Twilight Hunters game is a series of one shot D&D scenarios for 1st through 5th level characters and is open to new players that have no experience with Dungeons and Dragons 5E. The game session could vary every single time you play so you can play again and even continue to build your character up with treasure and renown with the Twilight Hunters.

Characters sheets and dice will be provided in fantasy grounds.

What I provide

I will bring the rule system, character sheets, dice, maps and illustrations within fantasy grounds.
