About the adventure

Last Gasp is an adventure that takes place in the Southlands campaign setting. A wealthy merchant by the name of Wasif al-Jayib has come into possession of a bronze tablet pointing the way to the ancient tomb of Menet-Ka. After having deciphered much of the tablet, he believes he has found the exact location of the Tomb, laying in the long lost temple of Anu-Akma. Discreet inquiries led Wasif to seek out assistance in Siwal, the City of Gardens, where he first found an archaeologist named Shafiq, who was able to authenticate the tablet, and insist that if they are to make the journey, and enter the tomb safely, they need protection. Wasif has hired the Desert Falcons adventuring company, both for protection and for their useful skills in such an endeavor. You the players will play either members of the Merchants under Wasif's employ, Members of the Desert Falcons, or archaeologists accompanying Shafiq. The promised rewards for such an endeavor are many including gems, mountains of gold, and ancient knowledge in the form of lost texts, tablets, and carvings.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You will need to join my discord, read the rules, prepare your character on Roll20 (I will assist for those that need it) and ultimately just bring yourself and a Microphone. (Accommodations can and will be made for players with disabilities or other issues preventing them from using a microphone). Lastly I also use the free online player from syrinscape, you can make a free account there, and hear sound effects, and battle music I play through the system. (This is optional, but encouraged because it really helps the mood)

What I provide

Everything we need is provided in the Roll20 System, I have gotten together the maps, story and dice. Everything we need.

Gameplay details

All experience levels welcome This game is a tense race against time, there will be plenty of combat, but also investigation and puzzles with life or death stakes. We will use Discord for voice, and Roll20 for maps and mechanics. Roleplay is encouraged, but those who are new to Role Playing will not be overwhelmed.

How will character creation work

Characters will start at level 6, and may be created on my Role20 charactermancer, or imported. All official Wizards of the Coast, Critical Roll, and Unearthed Arcana is allowed. Keep in mind that the theme of this game is desert tomb raiding, and that characters will need to be part of the Desert Falcon adventuring guild, an archaeological team, or merchants working for the benefactor of this expedition. You may use point buy, standard array, or my own roll-for-stats rules (Which is usually stronger) on my discord. If you do not have a character in mind, and want to play a premade character, we have some interesting ones for you to choose from.
