    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    You'll need stable Internet, a reasonably decent-quality mic or headset (voice required, video optional but highly encouraged), and a Discord account. That's it! You'll see a couple items in the notes once you sign up for the adventure to get you going, and all the details are in a dedicated Discord channel for you. If you're new or newer to the game, no worries! I can walk you through every step of the way. I've taught many people to play TTRPGs over the years, and I'm always excited for new players. I gotchu! :)

    What I provide

    I'll bring a Foundry VTT world ready to go, a friendly Discord server, a decade of teaching experience (and lots of patience!), and a dedication to making sure we all have fun!

    Gameplay details

    We'll be using & respecting safety tools. The whole point of this is to have fun together! I'm pretty flexible in how we get to that fun, so we'll use a consent checklist/content guidelines form to help guide me in what the table is comfortable and not comfortable with so I can adapt accordingly. As a general rule, you can step away at any time for any reason (if nothing else: I have toddlers. I get it.). I use a Safety Tools module in Foundry, and you can privately message me at any time. After I bring the game to a formal close each session, we can decompress and talk about the game and the experience. You are more important than the game.

    How will character creation work

    We'll be starting with pre-generated characters that come with the adventure. Session 0 will involve choosing characters and a short onboarding to give you a chill chance to ask questions, get your character sorted, chat about safety tools, and get to know a little of the Foundry VTT interface. Then we'll be all set to jump straight into the adventure!
