Additional Details

How to prepare

Just have discord. I have character sheets and books on my discord. I'm willing to use another platform if needed. I'll generally write your character with you before session 0 if you need help and knowledge of rules isn't necessary. Webcam and mic are nice.

What I provide

I'll draw maps and illustrations. I have dice but will probably use a dicerolling program. Players can do either

Gameplay details

I'm more than willing to listen to any player concerns at any time. My campaigns tend to be gritty, violent affairs and antagonists are going to do pretty villainous stuff. But I'm happy to change the tone of anyone's feeling uncomfortable in any way, I'll also be running a more light hearted campaign in the future
