About the adventure

What should have been a relaxing trip to a riverside music festival quickly turns into a fight for your life when a tidal wave sweeps away the inhabitants of the tiny town you're visiting, leaving terror and destruction in its wake. Hours later, a trail of orange fireflies appears, leading deep into the swamp. Where the trail ends, no one knows... In this wacky mini-campaign, you find yourself in a vast swathe of mystical swampland bubbling with strange and unpredictable Wild Magic. To traverse it safely, you'll need a copy of the Traveller's Guide...and maybe a boat! On your journey, you will: -Explore the Bubble Bogs and Burning Fens -Discover and battle otherworldly plants and creatures -Uncover a coven's horrifying plot -And much more! You must brave the unforgiving landscape, investigate the mystical events surrounding the surges, and don't forget to follow the fireflies. Can you survive the swamp and save the Soddenweald? And if you can...what price are you willing to pay?

Additional Details

How to prepare

-A working mic is required -A webcam is preferred but not required -Having a very basic understanding of 5E rules would be helpful, but there is enough deviation that a total beginner could learn as we go along. -Digital dice (within Roll20 or otherwise) may be used, or physical dice. -Make sure you have Discord already downloaded for ease of access to our content.

What I provide

-Digital handouts of maps, stickers, and the Traveller's Guide -Character voices, improv, and humor -An open and accepting environment -Custom character illustrations and hand-drawn assets -Music and soundscapes through Syrinscape

Gameplay details

Session 0 will comprise of going over expectations for both players and the DM, exploring our digital safety tools, building our characters, and general knowledge sharing about the Soddenweald and how it differs from traditional 5E gameplay. This third-party adventure includes a wide assortment of hand-drawn player materials, including character sheets, VTT assets, maps, shop and tavern handouts, and more.
