About the adventure

Callisto is a sleepy train town in rural Appalachia. An old prospector, Jack Middleton, founded it, one in a series of settlements set to exploit the region's abundant coal seams. Nowadays, the mines are abandoned, and the trains- well, they don’t run no more. Some would say the sticks should be allowed to burn to ashes in peace, but this town still holds the interest of monsters and men. Shapes continue to wander the mines, and one train still runs through Callisto, Tennessee.

Additional Details

How to prepare

All you need is a character concept and the willingness to collaborate creatively! We allow digital or real-life dice rolling, and webcams are not necessary. You will need a working and decent quality microphone, and preferably the ability to use press-to-talk. You will also need Discord.

What I provide

Maps, tokens for people who don't have their own made, written handouts for background information as needed, and assistance with character creation.

Gameplay details

As I am a storyteller, the rule of cool applies here. If it's cool, cinematic and epic chances are I will allow it. I adhere to the spirit of the law insofar as it keeps the story good - but some rules are meant to be broken. I routinely (in my own play) ignore rules in favor of story and thematic penalties I didn't technically need to take if it makes for more engaging story-writing down the line. Because I want there to be no miscommunication:: * Sexist, racist, or otherwise offensive remarks and opinions being espoused, or offensive behavior towards other players at any point will result in ejection. * Murder hobo'ing, meta-gaming, and being overly vulgar just for the heck of it, are all big no-no's. * More generally, don't be a creep. Act responsibly. I try to keep my games PG-13 adjacent and will consult with the group during Session 0 about veils and lines they might have in terms of content.

How will character creation work

Character creation will happen over Discord and Roll20 after Session 0 so everyone has a chance to talk character concepts and make sure the party will mesh on a base level. Things like power level, equipment, and composition of party will be discussed during Session 0.
