    About the adventure

    "Straight away the high quality set up was evident with everything he puts into his game, amazing graphics and a clear knowledge of the world.10/10 would recommend! runs a hella fun immersive game!" - Fey (David) 🌏 - Explore the vast world of Midgard ⚔️ - Fly with the Valkyries 💥 - Fight in the Pit of All Flesh 👥 - Travel through the dangerous Fey Roads 💀 - Survive the horrors of the Underdark 💪 - Be the World Saving Hero and stop the machinations of the Empire of the Ghouls! “Ghouls are a lot like junkyard dogs. They only love you when they’re hungry…” What starts as a simple case of missing persons will unravel into a world-spanning race against time and odds to stop the foul plans of the underworld Empire of the Ghouls. In this adventure you will travel all around Midgard, proving your worth and showing your might. You'll meet the dwarves of the cantons, get an audience with the Court in Exile, travel in the Shadow Realm through the Fey Roads, convince the Valkyries to fly with you, and explore the vast and dangerous Underdark while posing as ghouls. All while being chased and hindered by the undead agents of the Empire. This epic high fantasy campaign, straight from the acclaimed Kobold Press, will give you the chance to become heroes of legend! Do you have what it takes to save the world? Will you unravel the mystery behind the ghoulish workings? Will you have the fortitude and ambition - or the greed and cunning - it takes to stop them? Sharpen your blade and conjure your magical light to root out the foulness below the earth! _____________________________________ This adventure will bring you characters from levels 1 to 13. It's a great way to explore the world of Midgard from Kobold Press and try out their new character options! Play as a Bearfolk Beer Domain cleric, a Ravenfolk Light Eater warlock, or a Trollkin Geomancy wizard! Try new ancestries and subclasses, delve deep into the Midgard setting, and embark on an epic adventure! Here's my GM reel to check out what might be waiting for you!

    Gameplay details

    Empire of the Ghouls is an epic adventure where the characters will get to explore the world and save it, but it can get very dark in places, especially when confronted with the brutality and eating habits of the ghouls. Before starting you will be asked to compile a form with your lines and veils, the things you don't want to appear in the game, and during the game we will use X/N/O cards, bleed, debriefing, and aftercare, to make sure that the tone of the adventures is acceptable for everybody. We will also use Stars and Wishes, a tool to give feedback to your GM, to ensure that your desires are met. My tables are friendly and inclusive and I will do my best to accommodate your needs.

    How will character creation work

    ♦️​ Characters will start at Level 1. ♦️​ Everyone can choose between point buy, standard array, or rolled stats (4d6, drop the lowest). Player's choice. ♦️​ Average hit points. ♦️​ Standard Equipment ♦️​ Characters will have a starting feat, even if they're not variant humans. ♦️​ Classes and Races can be from any Wizards of the Coast sourcebook. A D&D Beyond campaign with content sharing will be provided. ♦️​ We will also use Kobold Press character options from the Midgard Heroes Handbook and the Tome of Heroes. Players are encouraged (but not forced) to favor these options to have a more Midgard-themed party. ♦️​ If you really, really, really want to play a homebrew race or subclass, we can talk about it. I prefer official material, but we're all here to have fun. Show me what you'd like and I'll consider it. ♦️ Due to limitations of D&D Beyond, homebrew full classes and some options from the Kobold Press books cannot be created in the character builder. Options to create the characters directly in the Foundry game will be provided in this case.
