About the adventure

Welcome to the Barony of Nevermore, where madness threatens to hold illimitable dominion over all... Each week, we will delve into one of The Arcane Library's one-shot adventures from their "Bundle of Horror" series. Drawing inspiration from Poe, Lovecraft, and Roger Corman, each adventure will introduce the players to a new horror as they must overcome the darkness that threatens to engulf both the land and their own minds. Each week, a new adventure: Level 1: MASQUE OF THE WORMS A mad nobleman throws a party where the survivors will envy the dead... Level 2: VALLEY OF THE GILDED TOWER A nightmare lurks in the ruins of an abandoned mausoleum... Level 3: THE CRYPTS OF AZARUMME The search for a missing priest leads to the discovery of secret horror... Level 4: WATCHERS IN THE DARK Something wicked has fallen from the sky. What is trying to invade from beyond the stars?... Level 5: THE SNOWSTALKERS A foreboding mountain pass leads to an unexpected danger... Level 6: BENEATH THE BLACK ROSE Terror awaits those who would delve too deep into the secrets of a quaint road-side inn... Level 7: THE CURSE OF WARDENWOOD Howls echo through the forest on the night of the full moon. Dare the adventurers investigate?... Level 8: THE HORROR WITHIN The play's The Thing! A theatrical production will spell curtains for all! (capitalization intended) Won't you join us?

How will character creation work

Characters will start at 1st Level and be made in D&D Beyond. If you already have a 1st level character, you can bring them in, or I will schedule a free individual session before the campaign to help you design a character. I will also have pregens created for those who don't want to make their character or who join up last minute.
