    About the adventure

    The Incandescent Grottoes provides a fantastical look into what Old School play is all about. Explore the mythic underworld in pursuit of fame and fortune, and possibly more. Will most likely last 2-4 sessions. Using my personal hack of Old School Essentials, which you can look at here:

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Microphone requires, webcam recommended. NO reading required. Foundry does not need to be installed, it can be used through a browser.

    What I provide

    After the game is complete, I will talk about my impressions of what happened and reveal the full map to talk about how the players could've done things differently.

    Gameplay details

    Gameplay will be fast and loose, with some rule of cool mixed in. I very much enjoy having players intricately describe what they are attempting to do to then riff off of it and make a cool scene. Will use an X-Card through Foundry Content Warnings: MILD body horror (oozes) MILD gore (corpses) Weird Insects
