About the adventure

The battle between the forces Above and Below is over, but it is we mortals who have truly lost... What next in a world without Gods? Dare you stand against the evils loose upon the world - to become Gods? - Battle the forces of chaos and misrule that plague the land! - Build a community of survivors and extend your dominion! - Seek out Divine Sparks and Remnants to grow your power! - Rise up to forge a new pantheon and restore the world! Our world was not always thus - a ruin, devastated by twisted monstrosities and demonic creatures. Once, there were Gods, powerful beings who guided and protected us, keeping the fiends from our world. But the evil forces of Those Below rose up and dethroned the Gods, destroying their physical forms and shattering their divinity across all the realms. Now the realms cry out. With no guidance, the laws of nature are torn asunder and the mortals, the children of the Gods are scattered, desperate tribes, clinging to sanctuaries wherever they find them. In this campaign, you will develop from desperate adventurers, to champions, to rulers, to divine beings in your own right. With the opportunity to build a group of survivors into a great nation and find the scattered remains of the Old Gods, your power and dominion grows with you...

Additional Details

How to prepare

Microphone, headset and a quiet place to play. Most of the game will be Theater of the Mind, with rolls on DnDBeyond and Roll20 only for maps. A Zoom call will be available, but being on camera is not obligatory and is up to individual comfort/availability.

What I provide

Many years of experience, adaptability and a cocktail of voices! I have the Sourcebook bundle on DnDBeyond and a Master subscription, so you will have access to all the sourcebooks.

Gameplay details

Presence of a tag is NOT a guarantee of its appearance, but I prefer to warn of all possible risks and then narrow them down from Lines and Veils. I make extensive use of safety tools, including the X card and a pre-game Lines and Veils questionnaire. My tables are welcoming and inclusive and there is no TRASH* at the table! *Transphobia, Racism, Ableism, Sexism, Homophobia.

How will character creation work

The basics of character creation can be done via DnD Beyond, although there will be some restrictions on what you can play/take to reflect the nature of the world we are playing in. That said, I'm prepared to entertain some weird ideas! The main ancestry/species for the setting are: Human, Dragonborn, Tiefling, Aasimar, Genasi, Eladrin, Goliath, Hobgoblin, Lizardfolk, Shadar-Kai, Shifter, Tabaxi, Yuan-Ti, Thri-Kreen. No Blood Hunters please, and Clerics will obviously have some special rules, what with the Gods being dead and all...
