About the adventure

You have found your way to the Yawning Portal, a tavern in Waterdeep that caters to adventuring types. It has been said that if you can pass the trial there, the owner can find other work for you to do. He has connections. Or ... so he says. Run through the wild and familiar territory of the Sword Coast of Faerun. Visit familiar places like Waterdeep and travel deep into the heartland to discover new settings like Eltabbar and Elmwood. This game is open to all experience levels, just scaled differently to fit the themes and pacing for families with kids, young children (9-12) or middle-school kids (13-15). For youth (9-12) games generally run 2 hours, as I find that is the most reasonable amount of attention some kids can maintain. For middle-school, I like to push that to 3 hours or so. That may seem like a long time, but I promise, it goes by FAST!! Played over Google Meet (a.k.a Hangouts). We will start with 1st level characters and can build them for free on Shard Tabletop. If you have any other questions on character creation feel free to send me a message with any questions you have.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Prior to the game, each player needs to already be signed up with D&D Beyond and have a character ready (or I can assign a character to you). Once all of the characters are in place, we will jump into the story.

What I provide

You will want a great attitude, a sharp wit, a pencil with a good eraser and the ability to print your character sheet. We can use the dice roller built-in at D&D Beyond. That's it!!

Gameplay details

The first part of Session 1 will be all about learning the basics of the game and building characters using D&D Beyond. (It's really simple!) From there, we will jump right into the adventure. The primary purpose of this campaign is to learn the basics, learn that making mistakes is okay and part of life, deepen family bonds and to have fun in cooperation with others.
