About the adventure

The Fantasy world Urth has drawn the Demon Lord's full attention, and it's destroying the world, through cultists, demons, insanity, wars, plague, famine and disasters. The veil that keeps the Demon Lord out is weakening as a result, allowing it even more influence over the world and lesser demons to get in. Cults rise in shadows and things spiral down. If the Demon Lord can weaken the veil enough, it can enter the mortal world, destroy Urth, and harvest its occupants' souls. We will explore this new product on Fantasy Grounds. So this is both an introduction to Fantasy Grounds and to Shadow of the Demon Lord game mechanics.

Additional Details

How to prepare

If you want you could read up a little about Shadow of the Demon Lord and maybe watch a video or two of how to work Fantasy Grounds and Discord. You might want to join Fantasy Ground Academy (who are sort of sponsoring this event).

What I provide

Just You, my friend. You bring you and a spirit of adventure and a love of dark fantasy. Please join Fantasy Grounds Unity Demo (for free) and a free Discord account. Don't worry, just get on discord text or voice channel and I can (and have done many times) guide you through the rest.

Gameplay details

The world is ending, can you survive it? Not your normal fantasy adventure; expect it to end poorly and make a back-up PC. Read some "Black Company" or "Malazan Book of the Fallen"

How will character creation work

We will take as much time as we need to make a character (or two) for everyone. Teach some of the mechanics of SotDL and Fantasy Grounds. And then, hopefully we will run through part of an adventure. Cool, huh?
