About the adventure

It's Winter at the Great Library, Candlekeep, and as the year draws to a close, sages and children alike are quietly looking forward to the season of giving, warmth and togetherness. A festive earworm is making its way around the library. Whether working or relaxing, it seems like everyone is humming and singing along to the same little jingle. There's just one problem: once they start, they can't stop... ~~~ We will use Roll20, (for its VTT) D&DBeyond (for its character sheets/content sharing) and Discord (for voice chatting.) Battlemaps, ambient music and dynamic lighting will be provided for immersive gameplay. LGBTQ+ and beginner friendly!

How to prepare

Players will need to create characters ahead of time. Players will need Roll20, D&DBeyond and Discord accounts. A microphone is needed for Discord chat. Webcam preferred but not needed.

What I provide

I will bring the weight of my D&DBeyond and Roll20 accounts. You will have access to expanded character creation options. The game will include battlemaps, ambient music and dynamic lighting for an immersive, tactical experience.

Gameplay details

Mind Alteration and Mind Control are in the forefront of this adventure, and it has a generally tense and claustrophobic atmosphere. Animal and Child Death are referenced, but not explicitly presented.
