About the adventure

Some stories say the souls that wander here never escape. Some say that they stay inside the carnival grounds, forced to live out the rest of their cursed eternity - but that's only half true. While you might be stuck here for some time, there's always a way out. And that way is coming soon. As the full moon rises on The Carnival of Lost Souls, you see your chance laying there - ripe for the taking. Compete the trials and earn your way out, sent back to the realm of the living and a second chance to live out the life you desire. Fail and continue to be trapped in the Carnival until you waste away and are forgotten. You only get one chance - will you take it? Or will you assist someone you deem more worthy than you?

Additional Details

How to prepare

While a webcam is preferred, I do understand if you do not feel comfortable showing your face on cams, so it is not needed. A mic is needed to communicate as well as a free zoom account, as that's where our sessions will be held. I will provide everything else needed through d&d beyond shared campaign features. Feel free to use your own dice or roll online - I trust you.

What I provide

I will provide a place to play through zoom as well as a shared campaign on d&d beyond.

Gameplay details

Because this game will skew darker, we will be using constant check ins as well as encouraging players to keep the lines and veils document open at all times. While this game is meant for fun, it will deal with death and heavy subjects, so I encourage you to play only if you can handle that.

How will character creation work

Feel free to create characters ahead of time - especially if you want to discuss what sort of classes and lineages you are playing with the other players. We will officially go over PCs during session 0 and establish any connections the player characters might want. Characters will start at level 6 (I do not care how you establish your starting stats but if you roll please use the 4d6 drop lowest method) and level up through the game's milestones. Any classes are open but lineages must adhere to classic (tiefling, dragonborn, human), ravenloft (dhampir, hexblood, reborn), or a choice of changeling, yuan-ti, goblin, or shifter.

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Medium
  • Roleplay: High
