About the adventure

Dobble Thromby, The Mayor of Moggstrom has a problem. Someone or something seems to be stealing bodies from the town graveyard and he is willing to pay your party to get to the bottom of this mystery. Is it some kind of beast taking advantage of an easy meal? Is it one of the villagers indulging in some of the nastier magicks? Is it something to do with creature which has lived in the graveyard longer than the mayor has the town? It will be up to you to find out as the town grows increasingly uneasy… This game is meant for newer players, though more experienced ones are welcome to join if they wish. Level 3 premade characters for each class will be provided with only personality traits and name left to fill in!

Additional Details

How to prepare

We'll be doing the actual talking over Discord and rolling dice on Roll20 so you will need accounts for both of those websites. Each player will need a mic and webcams are strictly optional, unless requested I will likely keep mine off. I will do a quick primer on the rules, but I will teach players as we play mostly.

What I provide

A lame(But hopefully endearing) sense of humour, a small scale yet rich world in which to play the one-shot, unique NPCs and music for dramatic moments!

Gameplay details

This One-Shot will deal with dead bodies, monsters, mild horror, and fantasy depictions of violence. There may also be mention of child neglect and discussion of violence, disease and supernatural creatures.

How will character creation work

I'm providing a premade character sheet for each class, including artificer. At the beginning of the session I will run down what each of the characters can do and what their strengths and weaknesses are so each player can pick one they vibe with.
