About the adventure

Humanity is all that remains in these realms, the Elder Folk are gone. Which leaves humans to tear each other apart. Golden pine needles rest in the cold hearths of northern ruins. Barrows grown over with moss, drowned with dense shadows. It's inhabitants stir. Tombs of Princes lay with warships filled with silver and gems. Sandy crypts spill evil into the world of man. Treasures of old lay within the dark, glistening in false light. Legendary artifacts with history carved into them, inked with blood. The borderlands and ruins hold many riches. Swords and lances are sharpened. Poisons and lies concocted. Banners raise and shields clatter. Brotherhoods are forsook. The brief period of peace was for naught. It is the time of war, of Vengeance Era. An open world sandbox ripe for adventure where you will write your story with wit and blades. A world inspired by Tolkien, Game of Thrones, The Black Company, the Witcher and our history.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Mics are required, webcams are optional. Rules will briefly be gone over in session zero and over the first few sessions. Foundry VTT handles character sheets and dice.

What I provide

I'll be setting up Foundry VTT and the adventures.

Gameplay details

Session Zero comes with a short form to fill out which will only be read by the GM which details any topics that people don't want to deal with in game. We can't account for everything and if you change your mind or want to add certain things later you are welcome to. Halfway through each session we take a 5 - 10 minute break.

How will character creation work

1st level characters, all created in session zero as a group. Backup characters will also be created at the same time. 3d6 down the line. This will lead to a cohesive party ready to take on the world together.
