How to prepare

You will need a Discord account for voice chat, a Roll20 account (a browser-based virtual tabletop), and a working microphone to play. You can use either digital dice-rolling and the character sheet right in Roll20 or physical dice and sheets if you prefer. Using a webcam for video through Discord is encouraged, but entirely optional. If you have an image that you'd like to use for your character, you can share that with me so I can make it into a virtual token.

What I provide

I will provide all materials in Roll20 and Discord for you to create your characters and run the game digitally.

Gameplay details

This game is a whimsical 2-hour adventure with low stakes, meant to be rules-light and approachable for all ages. Content focuses on a group of children exploring a magical carnival and those characters will be created collaboratively at the table. It would help in that endeavor to come in with some basic ideas of who your character is by choosing a race from any of the Forgotten Realms 5e adventure products (including The Wild Beyond the Witchlight), the Players Handbook, Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes, and Volo's Guide to Monsters, as well as one skill that your character would be proficient in. Though this is meant to be light-hearted, it's a lead-up to future adventures with somewhat darker themes. Therefore, there are a few topics worth recognizing with content warnings: FAIRYTALE ABDUCTION MAGICAL CHARM We will employ the safety deck built into Roll20, which allows players to indicate when content is making them uncomfortable or when they need the action at the table to stop. We'll go over how to use these tools at the beginning of the game.

How will character creation work

Character creation will be managed collaboratively at the table using a custom version of D&D 5e's characters that I'll walk you through. It will be easiest to utilize the built-in sheet on Roll20, but a PDF version will also be available if you'd prefer to fill out and print that for your use. You'll save a little time coming in with an idea of your character's race using legal Adventurers League options for the Forgotten Realms that I described previously. I will be happy to offer any necessary guidance and answers to make this easier.
