    About the adventure

    My game is for the adventurer who likes mystery and peril. This is not an adventure for the faint of heart - The perils of Black Mountain Island are darker than any other in the world of Geotopia. The darkest creatures make the crags, jungles, caves, swamps, and even sands of the island their home. As a party, you will explore the island and unlock its mysteries - and potential wealth!

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Webcam isn't required, but a mic is. Players will need to read the rules ahead of Session 1. If they have questions, they should ask them during Session 0. Players must create their characters. No additional software should be downloaded - we will be using Owlbear Rodeo and Discord. Players need their own dice - or can use the dice on Owlbear Rodeo. Please share scans of your character sheets with me on the Character Sheets Text Channel.

    What I provide

    I bring my own dice. If players give me a vivid description of their characters I can create an image of their character. I'll also be sharing maps with them.

    Gameplay details

    All of the Lines and Veils will be discussed in Session 0. Following Session 0 I will send a re-cap of the Lines and Veils to the Discord Server. At any time, players can silently communicate X, N, & O's through the "X, N, & O" text channel on Discord. From there we can pause the game, discuss the issue, and make changes from there.

    How will character creation work

    Characters will start at level 5. Character creation can start before Session 0, but will not be complete till after Session 0 - as there are things that require checking for the sake of lore. Characters should be fully created by Session 1. I can be reached on Discord if additional help is needed after Session 0 before we start Session 1.
