The Curse of the Shadow Shard

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Roll20

Dungeons & Dragons 5e



About the adventure

Prepare for an ongoing homebrew 5e campaign in the Forgotten Realms setting in the year 1492 DR. Partake in political intrigue, mystery, exploration, and combat in the realms against the most sinister beings of the Shadowfell and the Abyss. Build your home in Silverymoon and travel to far off cities, planes of existence, the open ocean, and Spelljammer 5e space travel. Help the Harpers and the Emerald Enclave solve urban strife and natural imbalance. Retrieve the artifacts of an ancient evil to save Faerun from the shadows. Currently the game has taken us to Icewind Dale to solve some sinister plots up in the frigid savage frontier. This campaign is heavy RP but also has a nice balance of puzzles, combat, dungeons etc.. Does this mean you have to do voices or perform heavy RP? No, but we hope it's a way to get those without much desire or experience in active RP to become more comfortable with it. Open to 1 more player every Sunday at 3:30pm on Roll20! Levels 7-Epic. New or experienced players welcome.

How will character creation work

Characters will create their character sheets in Roll20 as well as either roll stats in there for the DM to see or in Discord in our Rollout Channel. Compendium sharing is on with access to all of the non-adventure content. The DM will allow any class and race from material not published by WoTC, such as DMSGuild, Unearthed Arcana etc.. He does ask for a copy of them so he can review before allowing the use of said class or race.
