About the adventure

This adventure is a re-imagining of the "Blue Alley" one-shot adventure, with extra content and placed in an entirely new world. Few things are known of the dangers hidden inside the dark corners of the Blue Alley. You've only heard stories, ones that remind you of dark fairy tales and legends of fallen heroes. Traps, monsters, wondrous and valuable magic items and untold riches. Many tried to put their courage and skills to the test, marking their names on the pages of the Alley's Guest Book. But only few of them ever returned. Locals or not, you definitely thought of giving it a try. No one has dared, for the time being. However, Don Terryn Erben has a very interesting offer to make.

Additional Details

How to prepare

All you need is a Webcam, a microphone, roll20 and discord accounts and a good internet connection. You're good to go! Other than that, if you decide to play a pre-generated character, which is something I highly recommend, you'll need to spend some short time to get to know your character, their experiences and values, their equipment, abilities and what any magic item they might be carrying can do.

What I provide

Roll20, custom tokens, grid maps, music and ambience, voice acting, cinematic and imaginative experience, humor, voice acting and performing.

Gameplay details

The game can be scheduled to begin about a half hour earlier than intended for the sole purpose of talking out the details of anything we decide to put an X on. Other than that, I'm always open to my players interrupting me to comment on why they feel uneasy and what would make them feel more comfortable. The adventure is itself very easily adjustable to avoid any triggers.
