    About the adventure

    I discovered and purchased this game in PDF format on DMsGuild by Pie Rat Press. I've taken it from that format and placed it into VTT format. It has a horror feel with a darker theme. There's no intense descriptions or anything that's rated R for the lack of a better term. I've ran it quite a few times for friends and they have all thoroughly enjoyed it. I like to play with a lot of freedom. I've given enemies homebrew spells and like to have combat be somewhat difficult. It's always possible even if you're not playing a completely optimized character but the combat WILL make you think and so will exploring. The game starts with you all adventuring and finding a man by the name of Yast. Yast's fiance went with her dad on a merchant trip and hasn't came back in a while, so he's asking brave adventurers for help. The setting is fantasy horror. There's a mysterious mansion owned by the Benson family that nobody has gone to in a good while. The town is lively but somewhat dark. The expectation of this game is somewhat of a dungeon crawl through the mansion, figuring out what's going on and trying to find out what happened to Yast's fiance.

    How to prepare

    There's nothing to install with FoundryVTT. Some players may have to port forward which I can help with but typically it's a non issue. It's played in your browser and I'm the only one that needs the license. You may create characters beforehand or wait until the day of. We can discuss whether we need a session 0 or not but it's pretty basic in terms of what to expect or do.

    What I provide

    I will bring the foundry license, books, the server, and maps.

    Gameplay details

    The mechanics of the campaign will be combat heavy with some roleplaying. I run combat with a lot of other mechanics and other tactics to keep even veteran players on their toes. There isn't too much planning but a lot of thinking.
