Additional Details

How to prepare

I ask that my players all have a working microphone, forgeVTT and discord account set up, as well as a stable internet connection for smoothness of play. I also ask that my players consider taking notes while the game is ongoing because I offer inspiration for those who would volunteer to do a recap!

What I provide

I bring colorful battlemaps, tailored stories and worlds that match the party within them, personalized soundscapes to match the campaign and an open door policy so we can talk about how to give you the best experience in ongoing games should you wish to join more in the future!

Gameplay details

I use Lines and Veils to ensure anything that may trigger my players gets handled, and I do not tolerate harassment of any sort within my games. We will also all get together in a session 0 to discuss expectations, and on occasion we'll be using stars and wishes. I am bi and use he/him pronouns, and I run a LGBT+ and POC inclusive game For game experience, I am well versed with the rules but believe in rule of cool when it'll bring the party as a whole the most happiness. Expect fun interactions with colorful characters and combats that serve the story and worldbuilding first and foremost before anything else! We take a 10 minute break every session to let folks get a snack and use the bathroom! If you have any questions about the content warnings know I am always happy to bend the story a bit to make sure the game is the most fun for the whole table.

How will character creation work

Character creation will happen via FoundryVTT before the session for those who would like to make a character, and i'm more than happy to get together with you through voice to work on a character together and walk you through the process. I also have a wide array of Pre-Generated characters for those who don't feel ready to make a character in Cypher System yet. You need to have a character concept an hour before your first time playing with us, otherwise you will need to use one of the pre-generated characters provided
