Return of the Goddess

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Roll20, Zoom

Dungeons & Dragons 5e



About the adventure

For centuries the Goddess of the land has been absent and her people have suffered under the rule of invaders. Now, a native cleric may have a way to call her back to protect her people, but it will require the aid of brave adventurers to recover the lost artifacts of the Goddess and learn the secrets of her disappearance. This game is a homebrew 5e game designed specifically for new or newer players. The adventures will be part of a larger campaign, but will be designed to be played individually so that new players can potentially join. Characters will start at 3rd level and I am open to any reasonable character builds that the players are interested in using if you have any already created. I will have pre generated characters available from multiple classes and races and I can also walk you through character creation before we play if you need the help. I am going to run a rules light version of the game, so all you need is a character sheet and some dice. I do not expect you to know all the rules and honestly even after 30 plus years of play, there is stuff I have to look up as well. My goal is to have a player driven session where everyone has fun, has a chance to role play and a chance to take out some bad guys. We will use Zoom for the session, but I will also have tactical maps for some encounters that I will display via Rolld20, but it is not necessary for the players to have an account.

Additional Details

How to prepare

I think all you need is Zoom, some way to roll dice and a character sheet.

What I provide

I have lots of images and maps that I will use throughout the game and can make available to the players after the game.

Gameplay details

Mostly you will be rolling a d20 and occasionally other dice for damage or percentage. I have spellcasters roll attacks the same way fighters do. My games tend to be some combination or exploration. role play and battle. There will be ample opportunities for all three, so I think most players will be pleased and as the game is player driven, it will somewhat depend on what direction the players push the adventure.

How will character creation work

If you have a reasonable 3rd level character with reasonable gear and items, then I am happy for you to bring them along, though I will want to vet them beforehand. I will have several pre generated characters ready to for those who just want to come to the table and start playing. Also, I am happy to help new players create a character before the game.
