Theater of the Mind

About the adventure

The Isles of Sky--the great flying islands of Aethera--are falling, sinking into the clouds below the Sky Sea, not to be seen again. What is causing this? Some say it is the gods; some say it is because the magical Aether Crystals that keep the islands aloft are in need of replenishment; some say it is dark magic, but no one has been brave enough to try and find out the truth. Until now. In hopes of honor, renown, and gold, you and your stalwart companions board an airship and go aloft into adventure! Aethera: Isles of Sky is a Level 3, D&D adventure, played primarily in Theater of the Mind, with ambient music and an experienced GM making sure that you experience all the wonders of this magnificent world!

How to prepare

A discord account will be required for voice chat, webcam optional! During session 0, we will build each player a Level 3 character. We will create the characters on sheets within FoundryVTT. We will also discuss character backstory and world lore within our session 0, to help players get a better understanding of the world they are in, and the part their characters will play in it.

Gameplay details

Players can expect a "Theater of the Mind" experience, where description of settings and player input within a scene is key. Character dialogue and roleplay will be important. Battle maps will occasionally be used for visual aid, but will not always be present.

How will character creation work

We will gather together in discord for a session 0 to discuss expectations, safety tools, and characters. We will discuss our expectations and ground rules for our game experience, the world of our game, work out where player characters are from, and delve into additional lore about the world of Aethera and the Lands Below, as I love to hear contributions from the players for world-building!
