About the adventure

📜 This month's Kobold Chronicles adventure, The Lost Treasure of Paletree Rise, is a sneak-peak from the not-yet-released Kobold Press book Tales from the Shadows! Custom pre-generated 5th-level characters have been created using material from Tome of Heroes, releasing later this month. ⚔️ In the Whispering Plains, far to the North of Corremel, lies a range of rocky hills known as the Paletree Rise. Travelers avoid the monster-infested hills, where manticores hunt, shadows dance, and strange trumpeting cries rise at dusk. The scholars of the Shuttered Tower know few of the hills’ secrets. But the cloistered scholars, whose home sits at the border of the Queen’s Wood and the Whispering Plains, have recovered a manuscript in nearby ruins that suggests a great treasure is buried somewhere in Paletree Rise. 👑 A long-forgotten monarch (referred to in the manuscript only as “the banished Queen”) commissioned a vault to be dug in secret, where it is said she buried ingots of magical steel made in cold forges in a place of great power. What arms might be made from this metal haunt the dreams of smiths across the Shadow Realm and beyond. The manuscript’s final pages refer to two magic lanterns being placed within Paletree Rise. Should the lanterns be lit, a trail will appear to whomever it be that illuminates them, guiding them toward the Banished Queen’s hidden vault.

What I provide

A fun passion for D&D! As well as comprehensive Roll20 benefits. My DM style is one that fully embraces the concept of collaborative storytelling while still maintaining a hand on the game. I am not a rules lawyer, however, I believe we need rules to maintain a consistent fantasy world to play in. Player agency is important. For me, it is the primary guide for the story that we partake in. Roleplay, and its many forms, is encouraged (no, funny voices not mandatory, but can be fun!), and crunchy combat can be embraced. One of my main goals is to accommodate every player archetype at the table; from the storyteller and specialist to the method actor and tactician.
