About the adventure

In the town of Oakhurst lay a mystery about a once proud fortress that fell to the earth long ago by an act of magical devastation, the Sunless Citadel today is filled with evil that needs uprooted! Fight your way through Goblins and Kobolds to reveal a more sinister plot deeper below the Citadel; if dungeon crawls excite you this adventure is sure to please! "The Sunless Citadel, written by Bruce R. Cordell, was the first published adventure for the third edition of dungeons and dragons. It is designed for a party of (Three to Five) 1st level player characters"

How to prepare

You will need to buy TaleSpire on Steam. You cannot play without it. Once you schedule a session you will receive an invite to discord - we will use this for voice chat so you will need a mic. Download BeyondtheSpire for Firefox or Google Chrome beforehand as well: Using this tool is very easy, just be sure to turn off dice rolling on your Beyond character sheet by clicking the gear next to the character name and the switch will be on the menu that pops up. Your character's stats, hit bonuses and damage dice will be highlighted and when you click them while Beyond the Spire is active it will send your bonuses to TaleSpire and you can roll them in game. Further preparations will be sent to you once your invite is accepted, this will go over what to do so that you can be given access to your game's channels.

What I provide

Fully made dungeon on TaleSpire D&D Core Rulebooks

Gameplay details

SAFETY: Expect large levels of violence, potential descriptions of gore, etc. at the start of the game we will go over lines and veils, lines being things that have no business appearing in a game meant to be fun and engaging and veils being things that can be hinted at but not focused on, like pulling the curtains over a scene. If at any time you as the player feel uncomfortable you can send me a message during the game and will discontinue any further reference to the subject. Most of my games will contain adult language (R) and I will allow it from players as long as it is purely for fun or used for expression in character - I expect my players to be kind and courteous towards each other always. Name calling, and major PC betrayals are hard lines for my games. The rogue can pickpocket the paladin, but I draw the line at killing fellow PC's for any reason. Otherwise murder hobos are okay in my books as well.
