    About the adventure

    The Wildlands are home to many dangers. Orcs, Goblinoids, and other barbaric peoples face a constant struggle for survival, as they fight amongst themselves and against the “civilised” world for resources. But things may soon change. Rumors are running amongst the tribes, the time is near. Soon, a legendary Horde will be formed, one of prophecy, one that will make cities crumble, But who will lead it? This campaign is centered around monstrous races, giving players a chance to play Kobolds, Goblins, and Orcs in a setting that doesn't burden them with a default stigma. “Standard” races aren't forbidden, they just require some justification as to why they'd be hanging around with “monsters”. A brutal setting, for brutal adventures.

    How to prepare

    You need at the very least a Discord Account, as that is what we'll be using to talk. Also hardware that can let you talk to us, so a smartphone or a PC with a mic. I'd also strongly advise having Wi-Fi connection or an unlimited data plan, as these games can potentially consume quite the bandwith. With this, you're set to play, everything else helps but it's not strictly required Ideally you'd want: >A Discord Account >A Roll20 Account >A PC (or Mac, or Laptop) that can run both >Headphones >A Webcam (absolutely not required to use it if you don't feel like showing your face) >A Microphone (many headphones and webcams come with one) >Stable Internet Connection with unlimited data (WiFi or some nice mobile plan)

    What I provide

    I have a Roll20 Premium subscription, as well as the official roll20 module for this campaign. This means we'll be playing on the official maps with dynamic lighting, which honestly it's amazing. I also have a lot of the rulebooks on Roll20, so character creation and management will be a breeze

    Gameplay details

    This game covers a much more brutal and violent adventure than your average 5e adventure. As such, communication about unwanted topics is essential during Session 0. I'll do my best to accomodate requests relating to triggers and traumas. We'll be using the X Card system during the game in case someone needs to put an instant stop to the narration.

    How will character creation work

    We will discuss party composition during Session 0. Character sheets can be filled on Roll20 (preferrably) or on D&D Beyond. I'll be available to help during any step. I can allow some homebrew content after review, just to make sure that the party is balanced.
