About the adventure

Sail Away on the Misty Sails! Your band of adventures is charged with transporting a dangerous artifact to a sacred vault to be guarded. Booking passage on the Misty Sails airship it has been an easy step and so far the trip is a simple milk run..... In the dark of night while some guards play a round of cards and drink a quiet night. The part is resting within their rented chambers with the artifact stashed away in a large crate. A scream calls out: "All hands to battle stations!!!" Hisses can be heard from the other side of the living chambers. Yelling and cursing as blades clash ring out across the deck and galley. Blood and smoke are on the air, what will the adventures do now?

Additional Details

How to prepare

just need discord and mic as this is how I communicate mostly. Please create characters ahead of time so there is a chance to go over it and it does not cut into playtime. I also have a selection of pre-generated characters made if players wish to just jump right in or have a tough time making characters.

What I provide

I bring my compendium on Roll20 that can be used in-game. These include: Dungeon masters Guide Players Guide Volos Guide Modenkinin Tome Monster Manual Xanathars Guide Tasha's Guide Fizban's Treasury

Gameplay details

Some gameplay may contain body horror and snakes. I use Lines and Veils as safety tips; players may address any issues by asking as well. This game is a boat fight to propel a giant monster from the ship.
