About the adventure

The King's city has fallen. A powerful necromancer's plot has come to fruition after centuries of planning. To stop him, our adventurers must travel the world and collect the pieces of his soul. Will they remain pure of heart, or will they lose themselves in their desperate quest to stop him once and for all? This is a mean and difficult campaign with a villain who is prepared for the party. Party unity is a must. No murder hobos. Role-playing not Roll-playing. This will not be a short game. How fast the players progress is based on them. The game has a detail in it that enables players to join at any point in the adventure. In regards to the content warning, some of them are going to be present because of the game world or genre of the game. Others might be present and are listed just in case, but are not absolutely guaranteed to be present.

How to prepare

Since this is on Roll20 and Discord, a microphone is a must. If you choose to have your webcam on, that's up to you. While I would prefer players to already know this edition of the game, I will teach it to you if it comes to it. But please know, you will be expected to catch on and remember what it is that I teach you. If you have the books already, perfect. If you don't, I will have them open and ready to be used. Session 0 will cover character creation for the most part. You can use your own dice or use Roll20's dice roller. Your call, I'm not picky, but I expect honesty in your rolls. Come on, this is a game, and fudging your rolls has no point. I would prefer a copy of your character sheet at the start that I can update with you, just for my own records.

What I provide

I will be using the dice roller on Roll20. I will draw maps and layouts as we go to set the physical scene.

Gameplay details

The bad guy is expecting you. There will be times in-game where you won't appear to be making progress, but you are. The bad guys will downplay your achievements, but you've made them. The morality of the PCs will be tested. Combat is an option, but diplomacy is also often an option. There will be rules changes that you will be told about. They are designed to benefit the party. Sometimes, the rules will be strict. Other times, I will wave stuff. Despite the bleak nature of the game, I want you to have fun. I am looking to have this game run on Saturdays.

How will character creation work

FOR THE 2ND EDITION VERSION OF THE CAMPAIGN: Starting character level is 3. Multi-classing is allowed. Dual-classing is discouraged. I prefer only the basic 6 PHB PC races for the sake of ease. No psionics. No custom classes/kits without a REALLY good description/sales pitch. Session 0 will address the A-Z of character creation. FOR THE 3.0/3.5 EDITION VERSION OF THE CAMPAIGN: Starting character level of 3. Stick with the basic races. No psionics. No custom prestige classes.

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Medium
  • Roleplay: High
  • Puzzles: Medium
  • Experience Level: Open to all
