Dungeons & Dragons 5e



About the adventure

For those that would like a free sample of the upcoming Nightmare of Strahd campaign I am hosting a one shot for those interested in exploring the dark realm of Barovia! The test session is for up to 6 level 1 players using pre-generated characters from the D&D website, and should run between 2 & 3 hours. Those that enjoy the game will be front-runners to participate in the long-form campaign starting the following week

Additional Details

How to prepare

Since I will be running a game via zoom, having at least a built in microphone in your laptop or PC should do it, though a mic and headphones couldn't hurt. Cameras will be used on my end but I am more than understanding if you want to forego that.

What I provide

I will be hosting the one shot on my zoom account and occasionally using maps on my roll 20 account. While a pre-existing zoom account isn't required, a roll20 account could be useful.

Gameplay details

Players should expect plenty of theatre of the mind style storytelling interspersed with gothic horror and storytelling.
