Additional Details

How to prepare

Players will need a computer, a microphone, headphones, access to a Discord account (free), and a D&D Beyond account (free).

What I provide

The DM will provide access to official D&D 5e content via D&D Beyond. Players are encouraged to find or create their own character art. Visuals will be posted in the Discord channel.

Gameplay details

This game is designed to be fun and provide a moderate challenge to an adventuring party. The game will be largely focused on completing the quest and there will be little down time; players will need to bring RP up as they want and are encouraged to do so. As for content, I will not have adult or explicit content in the game; any scenes headed that direction will fade to black or be interrupted with a convenient narrative moment. The rating for this game will be PG-13. It is my function as a GM to provide a safe and fun experience; and while topics can be "appropriate" in the context of the narrative I encourage players to discuss which topics they are not comfortable with and I will adjust as needed. If a topic comes up and is a triggering experience please use the "Red" "Yellow" and "Green" light system for adjusting the flow the narrative. Saying "Red (light)" or typing it in chat with all capital letters means that the current scene must stop and be significantly altered; two or more Red lights in a scene will stop play and a break will occur to process how and if the game will continue. "Yellow" will prompt the GM and players to avoid, fade to black, or alter the narrative in the moment without an abrupt stop; indicating that the player who used Yellow would like to avoid what they believe is about to be a triggering or very uncomfortable scene. "Green" (some times asked as a question), indicates that a player is comfortable with the scene. A player about to make an action they believe may make other players (including the GM) uncomfortable may ask "Green light?" if no one has said "Red" or "Yellow" as they prepare. Once asked the other players can respond as the need to (with Red, Yellow, or Green. I strive to GM a game that challenges and entertains players with only "Green" lights. Please connect with me for more information.

How will character creation work

The DM will host a zero session where players will choose the House they want to belong to, create a character, how they all know each other, and expectations of the players for how the game will flow and function, and if there are any issues they would like to completely avoid, not interact with, and have no issue with.
