About the adventure

"Takhisis the Dragon Queen has returned to the world of Krynn. Across the land, her armies of fanatical draconians wage a brutal war of conquest. As the Dragon Armies march on the unprepared nation of Solamnia, only the defenders of the city of Kalaman stand in their way. But the Dragon Armies want more than just to crush their foes. An ancient evil in the Dragon Queen’s service seeks a magical weapon that could dominate Krynn for all time. " You will play the adventurers who dare stand up in this trying time. Starting at level one, you will work your way all to level eleven as you work your way through battle fields, dungeons and and the most dangerous of days. You will need every skill at your disposal to make it through war. You'll need even more to win the day. This campaign set in the world of Dragonlance will allow me the chance to play in the first world I ever played in Dungeons & Dragons. I will get to bring the world of Krynn that inspired my love of this game to all of you. In all of its challenges and beauty, I can't way to see you make your way through this hellscape. What People Who Have Played With Me Say: +"I've played a few games with Jacob, who is one of the best. Each time I played a system I had never played before, he made it super easy to learn. I highly recommend joining any of his games, especially the themed ones. I had a blast!" +"Fantastic GM who walked us all through the our first experience with D&D every step of the way. Helpful, thorough, inclusive, and just and absolute pleasure." +"Outstanding DM with talent for worldbuilding, fun and memorable characters, and strong emphasis on fostering a close-knit but welcoming party dynamic that makes for fantastic gameplay week after week!!"

Additional Details

How to prepare

We will be playing predominantly through Discord and Owlbear.Rodeo. With that in mind, please make sure you have a functional digital device, a microphone and internet connection. You may use the dice in the Discord or your own personal.

What I provide

I will bring a career long love of the setting of Krynn and a deep desire to make this campaign your best entry point into this fantastic setting.

Gameplay details

The game will be adventuring through a war torn country. It will be a dark and dangerous adventure which is why safety is so important while we play. We will start with a Session Zero where everyone will fill out the Monte Cook RPG Consent Checklist. During play we will use a variant of X, N, And O Cards called Red/Yellow Cards as well as having an Open Door Policy and a regular midgame Break.
