    About the adventure

    Welcome one, welcome all to D&D 5E! This is the perfect time for you to learn how, what and why roleplaying and Dungeons and Dragons is! This will be open to all, new players, new edition-ers, inexperienced people who’ve only tried a few times, families, mums and dads who just bought lil Charlie their first starter kit and have no idea what’s going on, everyone, heck, even Dungeon Masters just wanting to play once in a while. You don’t need anything, we can use premade characters or if you sort-of-know-what-you’re-doing, make your own using “standard array”. This is a ONE SHOT, which is roleplay speak for a one and done game. We’ll complete our story one way or another in one evening. Perfect for a taster session.

    How to prepare

    A mic, so you can speak to us all, is excellent, and cameras are encouraged. We can discuss what platform is best for all, be it discord, teams. Zoom or even Facebook rooms! There are loads of ways to make your character sheets, I have no preference to what you use, be it an app, DNDBeyond or a paper character sheet (my preference as a player)

    What I provide

    I will provide images digitally through the campaign, but I would recommend you have dice to hand or a dice app. Plus something to create your characters with, either online tools, or like me, pencil and paper.

    Gameplay details

    As a DM/GM, I do not often use foul language, however occasionally it will be appropriate. I do not promote sexual themes in my adventures. Because this is a One Shot adventure, I’ll go through a quick dos and donts such as no bad language if children present etc

    How will character creation work
