About the adventure

This adventure, designed for three to seven 1st-level characters, is the first in a series of four adventures. It is set in Spelljammer Academy on the island of Nimbral, many miles southwest of the Chultan peninsula in the Forgotten Realms campaign setting. Welcome to Spelljammer Academy! Promising recruits are trained here under the tutelage of experienced spelljammers, who prepare fledgling spacefarers for the perils of Wildspace and the Astral Sea. Cadets learn the finer points of ship-to-ship combat, space exploration, and (in some cases) clandestine operations. The newest batch of recruits has just arrived after a long, arduous sea voyage, but there’s still much to do! Although it’s business as usual at Spelljammer Academy, the new cadets soon learn that strange things are afoot. The purpose of this adventure is to introduce the characters to Spelljammer Academy and foreshadow an unknown threat. This is a beginners friendly game. No experience in D&D is required.

Gameplay details

The X-Card is a tool that allows anyone in our game (including myself) to edit out any content anyone is uncomfortable with as we play. When something (anything) comes up that makes you uncomfortable, use the macro to whisper me or post in public chat an X-Card, and we’ll move on. The X-Card is the emergency button – immediately stop! The player may or may not be willing to immediately discuss why they used the X-Card, but the important thing is to stop and check if they need support. This might be a good time for everyone to take a break, or to quickly skip to the next scene. The N-Card says that you are starting to get uncomfortable, and that the GM should pull back the intensity and quickly proceed to the next scene. When you find something especially interesting, feel free to whisper me or post in public chat your O-Card. This lets me know you’d like the scene to last longer, or to use that kind of content more.
