Dungeons & Dragons 5e
About the adventure
You, a group of bold adventurers, have sailed to the Gemstone Archipelago in search of fame and fortune. A multitude of possibilities lay before you. Will you delve into the Serpent Pyramid, braving traps and hazards in search of the Bloody Grail? Will you venture into the dark jungles of the Emerald Isle to hunt down the mighty, acid-spitting Ankheg? Will you assault the goblin pirates’ hidden base on the Sapphire Isle? Whatever adventure you choose, it will be a perilous journey indeed. ----- This is an introductory adventure meant to teach you how to play D&D. We will be playing on Roll20, and using Discord for voice/video chat. I will be providing premade characters, so you don’t have to worry about character creation.

How to prepare
I use virtual tabletop software to make D&D more visually engaging and accessible. We will be using Roll20, which you can run in your browser (I recommend Firefox). We'll also be using Discord for voice/video chat.
What I provide
I will be bringing a curated selection of maps and original adventures that have been my most successful from the past year of intense DMing that I’ve done. I have over 4000 hours in experience with various virtual tabletops, and have mastered my prep process to the point that I can improvise meaningfully on any riffs the players give me. You don’t need to bring anything but a desire to have a good time.
I always want my games to make BIPOC and LGBT people feel welcome in the hobby of D&D (I’m also bi). I think that there are many good reasons to scrutinize racist, queerphobic, sexist, and colonialist tropes in the high fantasy genre and in D&D culture. I have made my OC campaign setting with a critical eye towards such tropes. In terms of content warnings, my campaigns typically include the kind of content you might expect from an M-rated fantasy video game like Skyrim or Dark Souls. There will be violence and gore, but I steer clear of stuff like sexual violence, slavery, and other things that are uncomfortably close to reality. I also avoid putting your characters in ethical dilemmas where they are required to do something awful. My games are escapist in nature. Heroes are heroes and villains are villains. In terms of safety tools, I tend to go the Lines and Veils route. Meaning, I get a sense from my players what themes are completely unacceptable to them (like slavery), and what themes are just too uncomfortable to describe in detail (like a giant tarantula). But normally I try and keep things pretty tame and lighthearted, and the violence in my games isn’t graphic or realistic. I don’t want anyone to feel bummed out because of my games, it’s supposed to be fun. I don’t go for cheap shocks or pointless edginess.

How will character creation work
We’re going to do a level 1 start, I'll make all of the characters beforehand. Let me know if you have a class/race preference for your character. Otherwise, you can choose from a list of premade characters at game time.
