About the adventure

The people of the Sword Coast are under attack! Hill giants are rampaging through their farms, destroying everything in their path and stealing their precious food and livestock. Fire giants are snatching up innocent villagers and forcing them into slavery, all while constructing some monstrous and deadly device. Meanwhile, the stone giants are tearing down structures that have been built by non-giants for centuries, leaving rubble and destruction in their wake. And the cloud giants are scouring the land in search of powerful artifacts that they believe will give them the edge they need to conquer all who oppose them. This game is DMed by Enigma, a mute dungeon master. This is a live-text campaign. What this means is, narration will take place entirely via text. This means that some things may take longer, but players will have more time to think over their characters' actions and dialogue. For combat, exploration, and dice rolls, FoundryVTT will be used. This allows for a multitude of possibilities. πŸ”Ή A live text campaign means splitting the party isn't an issue; the GM can focus on many scenes πŸ”Ή Perfect for people who prefer text to voice πŸ”Ή If you want to use your voice, you can do so by sending an audio file πŸ”Ή Additional roleplay opportunities exist with play-by-post outside of the scheduled session πŸ”Ή A long campaign with plenty of opportunities for drop-ins πŸ”Ή Custom character sidequests tied to character backstories πŸ”Ή Bigby's πŸ”Ή Visit places from the D&D Movie like the Underdark, Triboar, Neverwinter, and Waterdeep This campaign expertly merges the modules Tales from the Yawning Portal, Against the Giants, Dreams of the Red Wizards, and more with Storm King's Thunder, unifying a group of ragtag characters and preparing them to face mighty giants and more. This is an open-world campaign, meaning players choose where they want to go and what they want to do. βš”οΈ Discord Link: https://discord.gg/8RtNxxG4G6 πŸ–ΌοΈ Credits: Cover art illustrated and composited by Dreams.

What I provide

Enigma, your DM, provides an incredible experience, with the help of various tools about 20 years of experience with text roleplay. His games include: πŸ”Ή Working one-on-one with you to weave your character backstory in and make this a unique experience. πŸ”Ή Adding his own twist to the story and accounting for character actions and interactions. This is not a static world, and the echoes of the party's choices will be seen. πŸ”Ή Giving characters boons and magic items and scaling up monsters to make combat engaging and challenging. Monsters will not hold back, but the DM will root for your success. πŸ”Ή Creating NPCs with motivations and personalities, who may help or hinder the player characters. Maintain friendships, rivalries, make enemies or even potentially lovers (with consent). πŸ”Ή Customized heroic rivals that will try to oppose the party at every turn. πŸ”Ή A highly automated (but not too much) πŸ”Ή Additional monsters from Kobold Press, Level Up 5E, Monster Manual Expanded, Flee Mortals, 2CGaming, etc πŸ”Ή Custom (homebrew) content and systems from the DM and third-parties. πŸ”Ή Pre-generated characters or concepts, in case you do not wish to create your own Dreams will bring: πŸ”Ή Their knowledge of Avrae VTT, which they will teach players wanting to learn πŸ”Ή Their resources, which they share with Enigmatic

Gameplay details

πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆβ™ΎοΈπŸ‘¨πŸΎβ€πŸ¦² This is a safe table for people of all types. Dreams is trans and queer, Enigma is LGBTQIA+, and we are both neurodivergent. We hope to make a place where all can feel accepted, regardless of race, gender, beliefs. πŸ‘¨πŸΎβ€πŸ¦²β™ΎοΈπŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ This is a live text campaign. Synchronous live text is a way of playing roleplaying games online that uses text-based communication instead of voice. You connect with other players and the game master through a messaging platform or app, and use the software's text-based features to interact with each other and the game world. You describe your character's actions, thoughts, and dialogue through text, while the GM can provide descriptions of the environment, non-player characters (NPCs), and other important elements of the story. FoundryVTT will also include visual aids such as maps, tokens, and images. This type of gameplay can be a fun and flexible way to participate in roleplaying games, especially for those who prefer text-based communication or who are unable to use voice chat. Combat will move smoothly thanks to addons, and what Foundry has to offer will add to immersion. πŸ“± Don't have a PC that can use Foundry? No problem! Dreams will screen-share, and you may roll in Discord or with your own math rocks. Just let us know, and post your dice rolls in the chat! πŸ“± Safety tools will always be in effect; this game is a safe and inclusive place. We will use safety cards, Monte-Cooke consent form, lines and veils, and any other safety tools the group needs. Both Enigma and Dreams are neurodiverse and LGBTQIA+, and seek to provide a safe table for all players. Accessibility is a big part of the game, and accommodations will be made to meet your needs so that you can have fun. The following will NOT be featured in our games: ✳ Sexual Assault/Non-Consensual Sex ✳ Exploitation of Minors ✳ Explicit mature content [will always fade to black] ✳ Real life imagery of sabotage/destruction [GIFs, Photos, and Videos] ✳ Player-on-Player gaslighting, bullying, or negativity ✳ Player-on-Player TRASH [transphobia, racism, ableism, sexism, homophobia] behavior ‼️ DISCLAIMER: It is extremely stormy in the area this time of year.
