    About the adventure

    A D&D classic visited by a GM who has only ever run home-brew games. Get ready for a crazy adventure. Want to kick it with your buddies? Enjoying a bespoke gaming experience from a GM who loves improv, tiered successes and failures, engaging npcs and drama? All set in the setting crafted by the makers of "The Worlds Greatest Role Playing Game"? Hit my line. You will all have complete autonomy to move about and interact with the forgotten realms as you please. The goal is to start with the "Lost Mines of Phandelver" module from the D&D 5e starter kit. But if your party, for some reason, sees no good reason to hang out in Phandelver - not a problem at all. I own quite literally every supplement book. Once completed, the party will move on in the world of Toril (or beyond) into whatever campaign module we collectively agree would be awesome to play.

    How to prepare

    You will need to install the software "discord" if you have not already, and create an account. You will receive a link to my gaming discord server where we handle scheduling, communication, and reports. Likewise, you will need to access a website come game time. I will provide you with a domain that links to my foundry vtt server where we "play" the game. You need not make an account, install software, or transfer data from dndbeyond (I will do the latter). Merely click and go.

    What I provide

    Every book on dndbeyond. A custom foundry vtt domain that is memorable, safe, and accessible 24/7 if you want to review notes.

    Gameplay details

    Players can expect a session that is rules-light. This is to say: In the event of a rules discrepancy we will make a quick ruling that is a) fair from the perspective of the gm and b) gets on with the game as soon as possible. Were here to play games, not read rules. After the session where such an event occurs, I will look up the proper ruling, and clear up any confusions about it going forward. The world of the forgotten realms is all-together quite tame. Death, murder, and violence exist - but sexual violence, obscene gore, and prejudicial behavior do not. This game and gaming group will be an expression of that paradigm. Sexual violence, obscene gore, and prejudicial behavior will not be featured in this game. If at any point a player feels uncomfortable with the content of the game, or any individual player, I would ask them to message me personally. I will do whatever it takes to steer the direction of the game away from that negative place while retaining the anonymity of the individual. No further comments will come from me on the topic if I am informed you are uncomfortable, I will simply do what it takes to make you comfortable. It's a game, we should be enjoying ourselves to the max.
