About the adventure

The Planescape setting of Dungeons and Dragons is easily my favorite setting of all time. Set in Sigil, the torus-shaped mega-city, the adventurers will find themselves among the primes; outlanders trying to find their place in this newfound home. Angels and demons roam the streets, strange mazes can be found between buildings, and the mysterious dabus shape the city to their will. Sigil, sometimes called the Cage, is a challenging place to call home, filled with cutpurses, warlords, philosophers, mazes, portals to distant worlds, and more! There are elements of steampunk and there are elements of medieval fantasy within this strange place. As a nexus point for the entire multiverse, all things are possible within Sigil. All things, except those the Lady of Pain has made anathema... You and your group will play the part of couriers, messengers and runners between dangerous factions all vying for power in the City of Doors. You'll start off level 1 and through the course of a campaign make your way to level 10 and perhaps beyond. Come and explore this truly unique place and let's planescape!

Additional Details

How to prepare

Please download Zoom with a working webcam if you do not already have it. Also, please start an account with D&D Beyond as well as Roll20. It will save time in the long run. I would also highly recommend downloading Beyond20, as this program integrates D&D Beyond and Roll20, but this is not mandatory. Lastly, you do not need to have knowledge of the rules of D&D 5e before we play.

What I provide

Everything on my side will be provided on Zoom and Roll20. Maps and NPCs will be provided via Roll20 and additional characters will be provided via D&D Beyond.

Gameplay details

I try to focus on the three pillars of exciting tabletop role-playing: exploration, social, and combat. As an urban campaign, there may be a special focus on diplomacy; making your way in this strange city and forging alliances with those who may help you climb the ladder of power. But sometimes blades are drawn, and combat is inevitable. Create a character who's ready to explore Sigil, make friends when possible, and slay those who oppose you.
