About the adventure

Dive into the heart of mystery and magic with "One Giant Mess," a uniquely crafted one-shot adventure for D&D 5e that promises a journey like no other. Join us as you traverse the depths of uncharted territories, from the eerie swamps to the lofty abodes of titans, where more than just the landscape is larger than life. Are you ready to tackle an adventure where brawn meets brains, and the heart's woes weigh as heavy as a giant's footsteps? Then look no further! This is a Role Play heavy one-shot about the interpersonal conflict between 3 Giant roommates. This is meant to be a fun and low stakes introduction to role playing. It's fun, cheesy, and relaxed.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players should have a mic, access to tabletop simulator and discord. Tabletop simulator will have all of the dice needed to play. Players should have a character sheet made before we begin the one-shot. It is helpful to have a copy of your character sheet handy, as well as sending one to me if you have questions about gameplay.

What I provide

I produce 4K maps for each change in scenery within the one-shot. Additionally, if you set up a session 0 with me then I will produce a 3D mini for you to use within TTS. I also keep a drive which will track all XP, the adventure log, and your character items found in game, players will have access to all of these.

Gameplay details

Players can expect to have a primarily role play centered experience. I play by the rule of cool and view this as the players game. This is meant to be a low stakes, good natured, funny one-shot style game. I play on tabletop simulator and discord so it is important you have access to both. There is an opportunity for combat, though this is not the primary focus of this one-shot.

How will character creation work

Due to the nature of this one-shot, players should have a level 5 or above character created. If you don't have experience creating a character sheet, D&D Beyond has a very helpful tool to properly scale your character. I am happy to set up a session 0 to walk you through this process, if needed.

Players can expect
