About the adventure

In Seltod there is one event that surpasses all others, The Magician's Trials. Held once every 100 years, this test offers heroes the chance to prove their courage, might, and mind. Broadcast across the land, the Trials are described as a sight to behold, where heroes traverse worlds, unleash their power, and explore the limits of magic itself. The victors are offered prizes beyond their wildest dreams, while losers are expelled from the tournament without pomp and circumstance. However, the trials are not without danger. Deaths are common, but heroes know the risks. Now, it's your turn. Fight through the games, solve the trials, and become the winning team at any cost. Welcome to the Magician's Trials.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You'll need a webcam and microphone for this game. A laptop webcam and wired headphone mic work perfectly fine! Don't worry about super fancy equipment or anything. You'll need to join the Discord Server and the Roll20. In addition, make sure that you are comfortable with using Zoom for the purposes of gameplay. I find that seeing each other's faces and reactions makes it way easier to interact over online games!

What I provide

Zoom, a Discord server, Roll20, information on rules, roles, ability paths, intimate knowledge of safety tools, and an excitement to tell stories with you!

Gameplay details

In this game, players will be challenged and pushed to survive the Magician's Trials. Sessions will normally consist of exploration, roleplay, and combat. Characters are expected to deal with multiple challenges and will also be dealing with fantastical and incredible worlds. They will learn more about the world and the reclusive Magician as they move forward. Quest is a simple d20 system with tiers of success. Players choose roles and ability paths to build their characters, allowing for highly customizable characters. The system is quick to pick up and learn. CW: Magic, Fantasy, Deception, Trials, PvE The Safety Tools in use for this game are "Lines & Veils", "Stars & Wishes", "X,N,O Cards", and "Open-Door Policy". Session 0 will include a dedicated explanation of those safety tools for all players.

How will character creation work

Character creation will occur via a private Discord. Most character creation will happen privately, but there will be a Session 0 that is held to establish team/character history. Characters do not need to be fully created by Session 0, but a character concept is necessary. Session 0 will include topics such as character creation, a little bit of lore, and safety tools.
