    About the adventure

    An up and coming adventurer, you are ready to start taking on some various jobs and prove yourself as a powerful individual. Unfortunately, that often starts very, very small, like clearing the rats out of this tavern’s cellar. But what happens when the rat problem is far more dark and complex than you ever thought it could be? This is a one shot written for 4-5 players of 1st level. As such, backstories are not required, but I do appreciate you putting some thought into your character's personality!

    How to prepare

    Players will need a mic, a webcam is preferred but not necessarily required. Players also need to have discord, as that will be used for communication and sharing information. Dice can be rolled on DnD Beyond or Owlbear Rodeo, but personal sets can also be used.

    What I provide

    Character creation materials will be provided via DnD Beyond, maps will be shared via links to Owlbear Rodeo.

    Gameplay details

    Players can expect a friendly environment where questions are welcome and no request is a foolish one. As long as you are patient and respectful I will help you get through any issues or questions you have. In regards to safety tools, every player will be asked before the session starts if they foresee any issues given the content warnings specified, and I will be happy to change things if certain issues need to be addressed. Additionally, players are welcome to message me at any point in the session to let me know if they have any problems or if something is making them uncomfortable, even simply sending a quick message of X or N. I well then debrief after sessions to see not only any issues we might have had, but also what people liked or disliked and what they would like to see in the future.
