About the adventure

A group of adventurers gather in the parlour of a lavish estate in the upper reaches of Sharn, the City of Towers. They are strangers to each other, but their common bond, the debt they each owe to Professor Leng, brings them to this place to answer the call from Professor Leng's wife. The professor is in dire need of their help! This is a single-session adventure of horror and spookiness set in the D&D world of Eberron for 8th-level characters. Players new to D&D are welcome! We play on Roll20, using D&D Beyond for our character sheets and dice rolls using the Beyond20 browser extension. We use Discord for chat, voice and text only.
