Path of the Dragon Slayer
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Roll20
About the adventure
This game is based on the 5e Tyranny of Dragons module. Content has been modified to create an experience that will feel unique even if you have run this path before. It's set in Faerûn which is part of the Forgotten Realms universe. The Story Consists of three chapters, I am willing to run any or all of them based on the preference of the party: Levels 1-8 Hoard of the Dragon Queen Levels 9-15 Rise of Tiamat Levels 16-20 The Final Stroke The last 5 levels are not published content. Best case scenario at the end of the book you banish the Dragon Queen to Avernus. In this final arc you follow Tiamat into hell to finish her once and for all. If you manage to emerge victorious, you will feel like the hero you are.
How to prepare
We will be playing DnD 5e, be familiar with the character you have created when you come to the first session. If that sounds like a big ask, consider scheduling a private session and I can help you create a character, backstory etc. I will run you through some typical encounters and we can do a rules tutorial. I'm happy to teach a new player to play, but It's not fair to the other players for that to be on their time. The tabletop is on Roll20. The voice is on discord. Please be familiar with these systems in advance.
What I provide
I can grant you compendium access. The free subscription to Roll20 will suit your needs just fine.
This epic saga is not for the feint of heart. The combat will require resourceful use of items, clever tactics and creative solutions. Understanding your enemy will grant you the edge you need to survive. Important NPCs will have their own voices and personalities. Despite the seriousness of the subject matter I'm going to end up making you laugh. A lot. I can't even help it. I can read my players and like to let them do whatever it is that makes them feel great. Ultimately I feel like I have won at DnD when my players are talking about the game and thinking about the story between sessions.

It starts in the Greenfields which isn't too far from Baldur's Gate and the Sword Coast to the west. The year is 1489 DR and Elturel has not yet fallen.
