About the adventure

I think the most important thing in table top games is to have fun with those playing with you. While the story and the rules are important, its all about letting players have fun, do cool stuff, and then deal with the consequences of that cool stuff. The most boring part for new players is often session 0. The session where you make characters, talk about what you want from a game, and get the scheduling figured out. However they are a necessary part of the process. I plan to run this session in the way to introduce people to the game in an environment where they feel like they're free to make mistakes. I usually run games pretty lax, I'll let you TRY anything you want, but sometimes luck (and the laws of physics) aren't on your side. If you have a theme for your character and you want a slight rule tweak to make it happen, I'll probably oblige if you can convince me it makes sense and it doesn't break the game. That being said, while I am lax on what goes on in the game, I will still hold the players accountable for the actions of their characters, any actions by a player or their character that implies real world discrimination will not be tolerated. If you want your character to be a flawed person who doesn't like elves or something that's fine, but I think we all agree there is a line. All you need is access to the player's handbook and I'll handle the rest.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Have access to the players handbook in some capacity, and a way to create characters. Since this is a distance game, discord and Roll 20 accounts will also be necessary.

What I provide

I will be providing the DM Roll20 account and the discord channel. If the players find is necessary I can use my dice to roll for them, but honestly that takes all the fun out of it for them.

Gameplay details

The first few hours will be dedicated to character creation and setting the expectation for futures games. Afterwards with our characters we will start on on the adventure that will become the prologue to your adventures, detailing the story about how your party got together and why they stuck together.
