About the adventure

You and a handful of other lucky (?) souls awaken below deck on a sailing ship. None of you have any recollection of who you are, your past, or why you're here. Bodies and other gore litter the hallways and deck indicating that a fierce battle has taken place - and your small group are the only survivors. Imminent danger looms and you and the rest of the party have to work together to overcome this threat - or perish. Once you're safe, what then? Where will you go? Who will you be? How do you fit into this world that you've forgotten and can you get your memories back? * . * . * This is designed to work as either a one-shot or the first session in a long-form campaign for 4-6 players.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Work with the GM to put together a list of classes that you would prefer to play, and think about the kind of personality/behavior you would like to roleplay the character with. A microphone and Discord account are required for voice chat during sessions and for session 0 and other game-related text chat. A basic understanding of the rules of D&D5e is great but not required. Roll20 will be used for battle and other interactive maps, so access to Roll20 is required as well. There is a Google Drive folder will be used as a repository for and information uncovered over the course of the adventure, but this information will also be coming through the Discord rp chat for the adventure as well so the Google Drive folder is entirely optional reading. Roll20 has electronic dice rolling and there should be a functional dice rolling bot available on Discord, but real dice may be rolled at home.

What I provide

On one hand what I bring to the table is a fun and funny experience - my philosophy is that life is pretty rough so we should be able to win against the baddies in our games. On the other hand I bring intrigue and plot and mystery for the players to unravel. On yet another hand I also bring: * A fully tailored campaign experience * A fantastical homebrewed world * Intriguiging plots, subplots, and roleplay, oh my! * Detailed maps / descriptive settings / unique NPCs and mechanics * Tons of freedom and space for character development * Decades of experience crafting stories * Some (amateur!) character voices

Gameplay details

Players can expect fast-paced and descriptive combat with somewhat gory ends to the baddies, roleplay driven storylines where in-character actions directly influence the course of the story, and the story and plot to always take precedence over written rules. This adventure is designed to work as a one-shot or the first session of a long-form campaign. Despite the swashbuckling tone, this is not a purely "hack-n-slash" adventure, but rather one in which players can discover their characters' sordid pasts - and potential futures. Session 0 will take place primarily over Discord chat one-on-one between PC and GM, and the Lines and Veils and other restrictions determined through the Session 0 discussions will be reviewed immediately before beginning gameplay as a group in Session 1, displayed in a locked channel for this campaign on Discord, and combined into a single document in the adventure's Google Drive folder.

How will character creation work

Because all PCs awaken with amnesia, character sheets will be premade and kept by the GM with the goal of letting players discover the stats and details of their characters through gameplay. Players will request some preferred classes that they would like to play, and initially a blank character sheet will be provided. The specific class details, race, history, background, skills, and all other aspects of the character's past are mysteries for the players to unravel. Personality of the character and alignment are entirely up to the player's roleplaying choices - no matter who you may have been in the past, you can be who you want to be today and in the future.
