Additional Details

How to prepare

At minimum, the players will need a webcam and a mic. Rules will be explained through play. Characters will either be chosen at the session or prepared in consult with the Blue Collar Dungeon Master. No software needed. Internet connection with a relatively modern computer capable of running both Discord, Zoom, and a web browser such as Google Chrome required. Dice will be rolled virtually via Foundry VTT (we will go over at the start of session). A print out of the sheet is not necessary as it will be stored in both DNDBeyond and Foundry but is encouraged. Players will need to have Zoom installed either on a device cable of performing voice and video capabilities for the session. Video call will be handled in Zoom. Discord will be utilized for between session communication and for roleplay chatter!

What I provide

The Blue Collar Dungeon Master will provide the game interface being Foundry VTT and DND Beyond Content for character creation.

Gameplay details

Players can expect a relaxed play environment with a focus on gradually learning rules through play as opposed to having to do any "homework" prior to the session. The game will employ safety tools like the XNO cards and a Digital RPG Consent list to ensure no boundaries are crossed. Players can expect the game would be rated PG13 as far as content goes.

Anyone joining the campaign after it begins will be given a character or can create their own characters at the appropriate level in consult with the BCDM.
