About the adventure

Whether you have never played D&D before, are getting used to 5e or you are transitioning online or anything in between, this fun one-shot will give you a chance to explore a variety of mechanics and have a lot of fun. We will be playing through The Joy of Extra-Dimensional Spaces from the Candlekeep Mysteries anthology using the Theater of the Mind. (This means we will use our imaginations rather than maps to play through the adventure.) You will explore a mysterious location, interact with interesting characters, engage in challenging combat, and solve some puzzles all in the Theater of the Mind on Google Meets. I will explain how everything works as we go along at an easy pace and explore the location together and explain how to look up what you need to know. To get you playing quickly, I will have several ready-made characters for you to play on DnDBeyond. If you have a specific race and/or class you'd like to play, let me know and I"ll make sure it's available to you. In order to keep things simple for newbies, I am restricting races and classes to those in the basic rules. We will use Google Meets to communicate. All you need to do is click on the link I send you and log into the call. I will explain the rest of the process once you're there. This is an all-ages workshop. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent. Image by Complady on Pixabay
