Neverwinter Nights: 5E Edition

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Roll20

Dungeons & Dragons 5e



About the adventure

Relive the video game storyline of the original Neverwinter Nights, using 5th Edition Rules. The Frozen North: the name given to the stark and unforgiving frontier that lies beyond the High Moor of Faerun. A bleak wilderness where barbarian clans and tribes of giants roam the land and fierce dragons rule the skies. But amidst the frozen savagery stands a bastion of civilization: the city of Neverwinter, Jewel of the North. Behind the city's high walls those both hardy and brave carve out an existence from this bleak land under the guidance and protection of the legendary hero Lord Nasher Alagondar. Yet there are some things that all the courage in the world cannot stand against. A virulent plague swept the city, a terrible affliction that began in the Beggar's Nest. Soon all of Neverwinter could feel the touch of the Wailing Death. The disease could not be cured. Panic ensued; the streets erupted into violence. The Jewel of the North was brought to its knees. To save Neverwinter, Lady Aribeth de Tylmarande, Paladin of Tyr, and Lord Nasher's right hand, put forth a call for a champion. A rush of would-be heroes answered her call: some drawn by promises of grandeur and glory, others by the lure of gold. Those with the greatest potential were initiated into the Academy to train and study under the greatest minds of Neverwinter, all in the hopes a champion might emerge to save the city from the Wailing Death...and whatever sinister force might be behind it.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players will need a Roll20 and Discord account (both free) and that will need a mic. Video is not required, unless all party members wish to use video chat. Dice are provided on Roll20, however, individuals may use their own and the honor system is in place.

What I provide

I will bring the storyline, as well as access to any digital books required on Google Drive. I'll also provide in game notes on Roll20 to assist in getting a visual picture of NPCS as well as providing a method of note taking for players.

Gameplay details

Blood, gore, some sexual themes, and violence can occur during this campaign. That being said, I can easily cater to any needs of a party from a family game for pretty much all ages to as gritty and descriptive as the individual group would like.

How will character creation work

Characters will begin play at level 1 and will be created using 5E Rules on Roll20. I'll also accept pre-made characters generated with either standard array (15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8) for attributes, or 27 Point Buy using 5th edition optional rules. Session 0 can be done if individuals do not already have pre-made characters. All published 5th Edition books are accepted for character creation.
