About the adventure

In the wake of a government collapse, the people of Haeslem are left to pick up the pieces. Lacking a formal governing authority the cities and towns must fend for themselves and take matters into their own hands. These are desperate times for common people. Who can they turn to in times of need when the city guard has been disbanded? Who can they trust? It is a time of criminal enterprises and desperation. Times like these breed heroes. This urban adventure takes place in the town of Gerrin where a designer intoxicant known as Dreams has become popular. Each character is seeking something in town. Will they be able to find it before it's too late?

Additional Details

How to prepare

A microphone is needed as well as access to roll20 and discord. Dice can be rolled through those apps, but you are welcome to roll your own physical die if you prefer... As long as you're not rolling a suspicious amount of 20s. Please also create your character ahead of time. This can be done by any means you are interested in using, and although I would like an overview of your character, I don't need a copy of your character sheet.

What I provide

The game, the maps, the NPCs.

Gameplay details

Adult themes and topics are entirely possible. This adventure is not strictly railroaded and as such would take the route that the players direct. With that in mind, themes of rape are absolutely not welcome. Sexual encounters will not be roleplayed, though if this is something that a character engages in it would be treated as 'fade to black.' PC on PC romance is frowned upon unless it is well established in advance by both players that they would be open to it. Also, not looking for purely evil characters. If that is the style you wish to play with this is not the table for you. References to drugs and alcohol (yes, I'm aware that alcohol is a drug) are likely to come up during this one shot. Genuinely looking for people who are interested in having fun and creating a story in harmony with the other players.

How will character creation work

I will have premade characters set up for you to choose from. If you would like to make your own character that is cool too, but this option is only available if you are able to create the character at least one day in advance and check with me on the backstory because I will need to insert a specific detail or two to lead into the one-shot setting. Take 75 points and distribute them among the ability scores. This is not a point buy, just point distribution. No ability score can exceed 18 prior to racial bonuses.
