About the adventure

The House of Lament is an D&D 5e adventure from Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft. The players will make their way through a haunted castle as they help investigators look for the source of the ghosts. This is a good game to hop in on since it starts at 1st level, and introduces a new world to the players. If all goes well, this could turn into a longer campaign, or at least a couple more games set in this adventure. Even though this adventure is horror-based, you can rest assured that I will do my best to keep the players safe (if not their characters.)

Additional Details

How to prepare

A webcam and decent mic would be preferred, as well as headphones since Zoom will duck your audio if someone else is talking. We'll use theatre of the mind, and Roll20 for battlemaps. You don't need to use D&D Beyond but there will be a campaign invite provided (which comes with several sourcebooks). You can use physical or digital dice, I trust people not to lie, or else what's the point?

What I provide

Roll20 will have tokens for each of your characters, as well as enemies during combat. The D&D Beyond campaign invite will come with several sourcebooks.

Gameplay details

This game will contains elements of horror, gore, and other unsettling themes. We'll be using anonymous Lines and Veils which means I'll compile a list of hard/soft No's without anyone feeling the need to divulge their personal triggers. During the game we'll use X cards in a digital format which means that at any point a player can call an X, message the group, or me privately, and we'll stop the scene to check-in.
