About the adventure

You are trapped in the clutches of the Drow, deep in the Underdark. This dark prison is a nightmare for those on the surface. But, something more evil has awoken. Can you survive that which brings even the Drow fear? This gritty survivalist campaign will test your mettle against 5e's darkest realms and worst monsters. Stay alive, stay alert, and crawl your way back to safety.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players must have an active Roll20 and Discord account. They must have a microphone and network access to stream audio consistently. Prior to Session 0, players must join the hosted Discord and Roll20 game, adjust any needed settings, and provide a backstory. All rolls will be performed in Roll20 (or Discord if needed)

What I provide

All available Sourcebooks for 5e are provided through my account on Roll20.

Gameplay details

Intense horror and gore. This campaign is one of the more gritty and punishing. New players and those more carefree may find this module to not be liking. Survival elements are increased and players will constantly feel on their heels. Prohibited Content: Sexual Violence and Harassment does not exist in my game's world. It is neither a weapon to be used nor a narrative beat. With Discord's ability to privately message, I prefer the Line/Veil safety tools during game. Session 0 will consist of discussion of code-of-conduct as well as any triggers or concerns raised privately to me by any players.

How will character creation work

Character creation will be done through Roll20 with all source options provided by me the DM. The characters will be developed before Session 0, to provide an opportunity to introduce them during that session. Players are encouraged to discuss their characters with me. For players new to D&D or Roll20, a free informal session will be provided to assist them with the process. All Adventurer's League options are available without prior approval. All Variant rules for character creation detailed in the Players Handbook are also available without prior approval. For "standard array" and "point buy", players may complete that portion on their own. For players that wish to roll stats, that will be done in front of the whole group at session 0 using Roll20.
