About the adventure

Welcome one and all! Have you ever been curious about Pathfinder but didn't have a group to play with? Or maybe you want to see how different it is from D&D 5e? Whatever your reasons, I am more than happy to help you get started and show what fun Pathfinder 2e can be. Join me and other aspiring adventurers in a free one-shot to find out what is causing usually helpful nature spirits to become restless, even violent! Grab your backpack, your sword, and your spells and head off in the forest to meet with centaurs, elves, and dragonkin looking to restore the natural order. About the Gaming Experience This game is open to all who want to see what the buzz is all about! All I ask is to be as much a fan of your character as the other characters at the table. The story has plenty of chances to be goofy and serious, providing quite a range of roleplaying opportunities. In long-term campaigns, I usually start with a free session 0 where themes or topics to avoid are discussed. In the interest of getting right into gaming, this adventure will be equivalent to a PG-13 rating, with some fantasy violence. About The Blooming Catastrophe The one shot is an adaptation on one of the most popular and beloved adventures published by the amazing people at Paizo. The one shot is a good mix of roleplaying, exploration and combat and takes four to five hours (depending on the group). I will have pre-generated characters ready so you can jump right into the action! PS: Do you want to make your own character? Sure, let's chat before the game starts and I can guide you through character generation :) Do I need to own the books or know everything about the rules? Not at all! We will explore the game together, learning the system as we go. All that is needed is the interest in supporting the other players and to give every character the chance to be awesome. This is a safe space for everyone and it is LGBTQ+ friendly. How do I get started? You can always just connect with me through the site and then we can chat on Discord. Feel free to ask me any question about the game, my GM style, the adventure or anything else that comes to your mind. I am in! When can we start? Great! I have set up the correct start time for each session already. Hopefully you can find a time that works for you! Keep in mind that the StartPlaying time is adjusted for your location. Since it is an introductory game, I will run the game even with just one player, but I still keep the maximum of 5 active players to make sure the game doesn't run too long. I am interested in one of the other campaigns you are running. Should I join this first? I don't see why not! Come in and see if my GMing style matches your expectations :) Happy gaming!
