    About the adventure

    PERFECT FOR NEW PLAYERS. JOIN AT ANY TIME. I'm Doug, professional writer and retired Tech and Drama teacher. I write stories that will amuse you and engage you. My adventures are layered and thought-provoking ... and a blast. My table is friendly. My only rule is that everyone has fun. My secret ambition is for this to be the best 5E sessions you've ever had. Reasonably priced to start with, these sessions include a free session 0 and one-on-one time through Discord so that we can craft your character in an on-going way.
