About the adventure

This is a game for new and returning TTRPG players to begin their journey in the Sword Coast. From meeting in a bar, to daring quests and (maybe) dragons - we'll go through the whole of the Starter Set's adventure! Gundren Rockseeker has employed you to escort a wagon of goods to a remote mining village south of Neverwinter. You and your new compatriots must deliver the cache of supplies through the Triboar Trail, but there are shades moving in the forest - are you prepared!?

Additional Details

How to prepare

Please have a fast and reliable internet connection, Discord for Audio, Roll20 for Visuals. I prefer to use the honor system and roll my own dice, but Roll20 has a dice-rolling function that can also be used. No webcam needed.

What I provide

I will create the PCs in Roll20 with the players, including images and stats. I will have a custom landing page for the game, as well as digital handouts during the sessions for puzzles/clues/weapons/etc.

Gameplay details

This game will be fun, fast, and balanced. I've run the module both in-person and virtually, and know it well. We'll focus on the PCs, in a semi-sandbox format of exploration and roleplay. Combat will feature Group Initiative rather than individual rolls, so please be aware!

How will character creation work

There are a few archetypes pre-made in the adventure, but I encourage everyone to create their own PCs! We can build in the first session if it's wanted, or you can prebuild them and send to me for approval. Remember - the point is to have fun. So if you want to be Hawkeye, or Captain Caveman, or anyone else - just let me know and we'll find a way to make it work for you!
