Our story begins as our adventurers head toward the town of Neverwinter, on the Sword Coast of the Forgotten Realms. Gundren Rockseeker, a miner and one of the three Rockseeker brothers, is preparing to return to the frontier town of Phandalin, a few days travel to the south-east. In need of escort services for his goods, he hired four adventures whom he met while in town to travel with the wagon until they could deliver the goods to Bartrend's Provisions.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You will need a working mic and a connection to the Discord server which I will give out. I will also send out link to the campaigns to join so everything is connected. Try to build some sort of character story so that it is more involved in the story! We can help advise as one wishes to develop a character for fun

What I provide

Dice are handy as sometimes the virtual die do do not work accordingly. Plus half the fun is tossing those die around and waiting for that NAT 20 to show up. Music and sound effects will be used at times and distinct character traits for major NPC's. Other that that make sure you are hydrated and have enough to eat to last through what can sometimes extended into a long session if everyone is having fun, As GM I like to play fast and read with the rules and let's just all have fun and not worry about that lurking best in the forest! All of the sourcebooks for D&D 5e on DNDBeyond and can be used for character creation.

Gameplay details

This session should in no way encourage topics that will be uncomfortable to others. If a topic is mentioned even by GM please let us know and we can all walk back from table if need, No reasons need to be given,topic. We use the card system present and a safe word approach to to avoid any potential probables/triggers. There will be quite a bit of combat so players should expect some scenes of violence. There will be some description of battle in graphic detail. There will be no violent PVP action allowed during the game unless agreed upon by all members including the DM.

How will character creation work

During Session 0 we will talk abut characters and what best what to do with class and where to do from there. No PVP done between PC's I hope to have some combat done in the first session right after the bio break! You will need to have free accounts on Roll20, Discord (for voice), and dndbeyond.com. Please also install the Beyond20 add on for your Chrome or Firefox browser. I am unsure if it works for other browsers. Characters can be created using all the source material enable via the dndbeyond campaign link. We will be using the Point Buy system for Ability Points.
