Spelljammer - Light of Xaryxis
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on D&D Beyond, Discord, Roll20, Theater of the Mind
About the adventure
This story revolves around the characters’ efforts to save their home world from an attack by an empire of astral elves. The attack is underway when the adventure begins. After taking refuge aboard a spelljamming vessel, the characters head for the stars to discover who is responsible for the attack and how they can save their world. This campaign is for new and experienced players. Everyone is welcome! We will be starting at level 5. If you are a new player, I can help you get started! Just let me know what you need. Some rules are as follows: 1. Be kind to each other as players. 2. No fighting/stealing from party members 3. I will not cancel a session unless every player bails on it. 4. Players will level up together based on the milestone system. No need to track xp. As long as a player attends most sessions, everyone will level up at the same time even if they've missed a few sessions. 5. I plan on players using DNDBeyond and Beyond20 extension. These tools are powerful and make playing fast and easy. DNDBeyond has options to allow me to share my purchases with players to give you more options. 6. There will be a dedicated discord server for this game. This keeps discussions organized into channels so that important things don't get buried. 7. I plan on having a FREE "session zero" for character creation and general discussion, but feel free to bring a premade character that we can tweak. PC's start at level 5 This game will be scheduled to run bi-weekly.
How to prepare
I plan to run this game on Roll20, so players should have an account. We will be using Discord for voice chat so it is required that players have a mic. If players built a character on D&DBeyond, it is highly recommended that they download the Beyond20 extension. Players do not need prior experience or knowledge of the rules, but it is recommended to have some knowledge and experience. -Build character on D&DBeyond -Make account on Roll20 -Install Beyond20 plugin. -Join campaign discord and have working mic
What I provide
We are playing online, so I will provide digital game components like maps, tokens, etc. If players wish, they can provide an image for me to use for their character portrait and character token. If a player doesn't provide this, I can provide one.
We will have a session zero that will go over everyone's expectations and desires for the campaign. We'll touch on what to expect as well as things to avoid. If for any reason a player needs to step away or remove themselves, we will be utilizing the safety measures of Open Door and X, N, & O Cards. Open Door is simply to empower the player to step away and rejoin (or leave if necessary) whenever they need to for any reason, no questions asked. X, N, & O Cards function as an indicators to me (the GM) when subject matter arises which causes discomfort to the point it disrupts your experience, you can utilized X, N, & O in the following ways: X: Place an X in the chat to let me know you are uncomfortable with the current content, often resulting in a change, rewind, or skip of the aforementioned content. N: Placing an N in the chat lets me know that you feel the content is heading towards an X card, often resulting in a change or a “fade to back”. O: An O in the chat is a check-in card, where I will stop and check with the entire group to ensure that everyone is comfortable continuing with the content.
Safety tools used
- Open Door
- Session 0
- X, N, and O Cards
How will character creation work
Characters start at level 5 using the standard character builder on D&DBeyond. Players should use standard array or point buy for ability scores. I have content sharing enabled and all official content is aloud. This includes UA, CR and Custom Lineage from TCoE. Some homebrew is OK with DM approval. Alternatively, characters can be built in Roll20 following all of the guidelines from above. Please send a character image for your token in discord. Characters level up using the milestone system. Any character that joins the game later will start at whatever level the rest of the party is at. Characters should be created before session zero, but I can help in character creation as needed. I plan to finalize characters before the start of session 1.
