About the adventure

"Well Traveller, do you think only the Domains of Dread are found in the Mists? You are wrong. The Mists lead to many places, not least of which are the Fey Realms. And here is where you find yourselves!" This is a Fey Horror game with mild aspects of horror but also typical D&D tropes. The setting and scenario are completely homebrewed, and ready for both Beginners and Experts alike. Enjoy experiencing the outliers of the Unseelie court in all their mist-bound glory. As I don't like to charge players before they see whether they are fine with character creation and Session 0 discussions, the Session 0 for this game will be free, but it will be $15 for any further sessions for this scenario, if that is okay.

Additional Details

How to prepare

1) A desire to contribute in a collaborative way to tell the best story and have fun, whilst respecting your other players. 2) Working Microphone (and webcam, if every player is okay for that - if not, voice only will be fine). 3) Active Roll 20 Account linked to an active email address (as that is how I will be sending out links to the game). 4) To devote your concentration on the game, even if its not your turn or your character is not active at that moment. I prefer players that enjoy the story, not just your role in it. 5) If you are a complete newbie please let me know asap so that I can maybe arrange an hour or two to go through things with you. 6) A little bit of comms discipline helps massively in Online games. Happy to have text character to character chats going on but try not to interrupt others whilst they are speaking.

What I provide

I have the above mentioned Compendiums on Roll20, and I also bring top down tokens that I believe help with immersion. I also offer full colour maps with accompanying room images and sometimes even 3d views of map spaces. All my maps are custom designed (almost always by myself). I am also happy to design custom tokens (and profile pics) using Hero Forge based on specs from players.

Gameplay details

My games tend to be a mix of challenging tactical combat, challenging Social Puzzles, deep lore immersion and a relatively Player-led Story Driven scenario based on dramatic themes. Humour tends to be from individual character interactions and from Character based events - no Joke PCs please.

How will character creation work

Character Creation will be done using Charactermancer in Session 0 using a custom array of my own (a bit more generous than Standard Array) and created in Roll20. The characters will be level 1, and can use PHB, TCoE, XGtE and VGtM sourcebooks. I will be willing to do Custom setups based on Van Richtens, Mythic Odesseys of Theros, Eberron and Guildmaster's Guide to Ravnica (as I have the books for them). Looking at adding these to my Roll 20 compendiums asap. I will also have a number of stock characters available for anybody who does not want to create a character in Session 0.
