About the adventure

Neverwinter. For centuries it has carried the epithet "the City of Skilled Hands", and for good reason. Renowned for its culture and beauty, it was long a center for civilization and peace in the fierce wilderness that is the North. The last century or so has seen the once great city laid low, most recently by the eruption of Mount Hotenow in 1451 DR. The city was ripped asunder, both literally and in a metaphorical sense. Now the city is rebuilding, and is abuzz with new vitality and opportunity. Neverwinter Wood remains shrouded in mystery, and many fell creatures roam its depths. Those of stout heart and filled with boldness, whether from courage or foolishness, flock to Neverwinter, hoping to find riches, fame, and power. For those skilled with sword and bow, spell and word, and quick of wit there is an abundance of all to be found, with an extra dose of danger and death lurking around every corner. Interested in playing D&D, or have you had a taste and want more? This is the game for you!

Additional Details

How to prepare

Each player will need to have Discord with working audio input and output. A webcam is nice too, but not required. DroidCam is a great app that turns your phone into a webcam. Each player will also need to download install Fantasy Grounds Unity, which you can obtain at The Demo (free) version is fine, as I have an Ultimate license.

What I provide

All of the core rulebooks and many optional ones will be available through D&D Beyond and Fantasy Grounds. I will provide an immersive experience utilizing everything a powerful VTT has to offer.

Gameplay details

Lots of role-playing and social interaction. Learn how to use Fantasy Grounds, play D&D, and pick up techniques to fully immerse yourself in an amazing story. Combat is tactical and fast paced. The heroes are heroes!
