    About the adventure

    Ankh-Morpork, Discworld’s greatest city. From the Post Office to the Patrician from the Unseen University to the Mended Drum, the city is full of all kinds. When strange murders start happening, that aren't Assassins' Guild approved, members of the watch, wizards, and even witches will need to investigate.

    Gameplay details

    We'll be using D&D's three pillars of play: exploration, roleplaying, and combat. The care and well-being of everyone at the table comes before the game or story. For safety, I use the "X" card as well as lines and veils. Lines and veils are used to set boundaries on content in a game. Lines are hard limits on content, things that the GM or the players don’t want to engage in. Setting up a line means that content won’t show up in the game at all. Veils are soft limits, things that are ok “behind a curtain” or when they “cut-to-black.” Setting up a veil means that the content might be in the game but not spotlighted or described in great detail. Lines and veils can be adjusted as needed throughout the game. There is always an Open Door. Players can leave or take a break from the game for their own safety and well-being at any time without being judged. I have a zero-tolerance policy on racism, homophobia, ableism, body shaming, transphobia, and misogyny, including microaggressions in or out of game. Not sure what those are? Find out more here:
