About the adventure

“Thank you for hearing me out. My name is Varrin Axebreaker, and I have a proposition for you. My clan has located wealth stolen from us many years ago, but it’s sealed in a vault that’s magically locked. If you can recover the key—whatever it is—you’ll gain the undying gratitude of Clan Axebreaker. And I’ll cut you in for a percentage of the recovered treasure, of course. “The catch here is the person who knows how to open the vault is rotting away in the prison of Revel’s End. She’s proved uncooperative with my people in the past, but I recently discovered the vault where she hid what she stole from us. I need you to question her and learn how to open the vault. How you do that is up to you; if you need to spring her from prison in exchange for this information, please do so. I can provide you with a way in, as well as the layout of Revel’s End and a few useful tricks.”

How to prepare

Greetings, Red Shirts! As you prepare for your next online game session, we at Red Shirts Command want to remind you of a few important things that will help ensure a smooth and enjoyable game experience. First, make sure you have all of the necessary equipment, including a computer with an internet connection, a microphone, and a camera (optional). D&D Beyond is a great tool for keeping track of your character's abilities and spells, but you may still want to have a physical copy of the relevant rulebooks on hand in case you need to reference them. Next, familiarize yourself with the virtual tabletop (VTT) software that you'll be using. Make sure you know how to use the basic features, such as moving your character, rolling dice, and communicating with the other players. Before the game session, review your character's abilities and spells, and think about how you might use them in different situations that might come up during the game. This will help you be more prepared and reactive during play. Consider creating a short backstory for your character, including their motivations, goals, and relationships. This can help you role-play your character more effectively and make them feel more fully realized. Finally, make sure to communicate with the Dungeon Master (DM) in advance of the game session to coordinate logistics and make sure everyone is on the same page. By following these steps, you can help ensure that your character is prepared and ready to take on the cosmos. We look forward to seeing you in action, Red Shirts!

What I provide

Everything will be provided via Dnd Beyond and Above VTT. Not purchased software is required to play.
