About the adventure

A Scream In The Night The party of adventures are tasked with finding the lost son of Duke Lorthal. His son, Grinneth, has enjoyed a few years of merriment and so his father asks for his return for an upcoming marriage arrangement. The Duke is offering a sizable bounty for his son's return( in a marriageable condition that is). If returned in less condition then the reward is significantly less... The Three Sisters Inn is a warm and cozy place to stay. No need to fear that freak ice storm outside. With fantastic food and cold wine year-round. There's no rot from the back, trust me I clean there. Enjoy Alice's wonderous voice as she sings the night away. What? There was no scream from outside, it's too cold outside. What will you find in the darkness and hidden places of this cheerful place? Where sisters hold fortunes and songs for the right price. Where gambling may be found in plenty and so to the drink.

Additional Details

How to prepare

just need discord and mic as this is how I communicate mostly. Please create characters ahead of time so there is a chance to go over it and it does not cut into playtime. I also have a selection of pre-generated characters made if players wish to just jump right in or have a tough time making characters.

What I provide

I bring my compendium on Roll20 that can be used in-game. These include: Dungeon masters Guide Players Guide Volos Guide Modenkinin Tome Monster Manual Xanathars Guide Tasha's Guide Fizban's Treasury

Gameplay details

Some gameplay may contain body horror, alcohol/gambling reference, and flirty characters. I use Lines and Veils as safety tips, players may address any issues by asking as well. This game is a murder mystery and race against time style.
