Additional Details

How to prepare

You will need access to a Roll20 account (free one is fine) via PC. You will also need a discord account (free one is fine as well) with which you will need a headset with microphone. I only use voice for communication in my sessions, no video. Have an idea of the type of character you may like to play and maybe find or make a picture (digital so we all can see it) but this is not neccessary.

What I provide

I will bring maps and just about anything needed via Roll20. I will give you digital handouts via roll20 or through discord.

Gameplay details

Session Zero we will finish up your character and make them ready to play mechanically and to roleplay with others. My content is traditional medival horror and fantasy realm if something make you uncomfortable please let me know I will see if something can be changed.

How will character creation work

I will guide you through making a character for D&D 5e. I will explain the playable races of the realms. The abilities of each class and making a character background. The characters will be beginners, so starting at the beginning of level 1, no experience. Before we start the campaign we will run a few small practice combat encounters then move on to a bit of practice roleplaying using your characters skills and luck of the dice. Then we will be ready to start the campaign and I will explain how cooperatively that all works.
