Intro to D&D: The Pass

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Roll20

Dungeons & Dragons 5e



About the adventure

The sky roils with thunder as you continue on, a sour omen indeed but at least proof that the journey will be eventful. You all cling tightly to whatever means of shielding yourselves from the elements available, for if whatever fiends await will not end you, the cold certainly will. An eagle's shriek echoes throughout the land, how will you survive your journey through The Pass? A simple adventure to get you started in learning to play Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition! This game will focus on a simple get from point A to point B adventure, that may run for up to 2 session (depending on how you feel of course). The primary focus will be allowing you players adequate moments to roleplay as well as explore the combat options within 5th Edition. I will also guide you completely through all aspects of character creation, and will even provide pre-made characters of my design should you feel somewhat apprehensive, or just prefer premade as a means of getting into the game. Flavor wise it is meant to be everything you love in the particularly gritty approaches to fantasy; think rough and difficult lives made bearable only through incredible effort, where heroes are flawed individuals with goals and aspirations that do not always mesh with what is considered "good". Not necessarily the harsh raunchiness of Game of Thrones, or the utter grim-darkness of Warhammer, but certainly borrowing from those tried and true franchises to create a world that is rugged and responsive towards the effort of the players.

Additional Details

How to prepare

To prepare you should have an account on as well as a Discord, good internet, a good microphone, as well as a quiet place to play are strongly preferred. Webcams will not be necessary at all. You don't have to have any knowledge of D&D 5e but knowledge on how to use Roll20 would be strongly preferred.

What I provide

My skills and award winning smile! In all seriousness I'd love to become good enough at this to where I can give you something to remember me by, one day I promise.

Gameplay details

The game will (as previously mentioned) focus on getting from point A to point B and all the rules related to doing so. Along the way players will have ample chance to RP, explore, and fight.

How will character creation work

Players will start at Level 2 because I actually feel that Second Level is simply more entertaining to start at, at least in 5th Edition.

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Medium
  • Roleplay: High
  • Puzzles: Low
  • Experience Level: Beginner
