About the adventure

You awake screaming. A young priest looks at you wild-eyed and sallow of the face. He tells you that he found a rod of true resurrection and he started bringing back whoever he could. Any scrap of humanity, he tried to cast the rod on. He explains that he is a plainer traveler. The scale and impossible geometry of this plane induce instinctual anxiety. Gaseous tempests whirl upon the hooked peaks of gravity-defying mountains, oily spires twist in semi-organic contortions, caustic fumaroles yawn and snap shut hungrily, and above it, all hangs a dying red orb." a putrid purple sky pockmarked with black clouds. The landscape is a dull purple. As far as you can see, it is littered with what almost looks like a cruel mockery of trees. You look in the distance to see a mountain climbing into the sky but you realize it has no end. This place confuses the mind and befuddles the senses. everything smells of burnt ozone and rotting meat

Additional Details

How to prepare

Discord is required. If you do not have Tals Spire you can view it via my discord stream, But it is much better with Tale Spire. We can make a character together or you can bring a character or idea you have. You don't need to use DnD beyond but it is recommended. You can use dice from home, My discord dice bot, or DnD beyond. It should go without saying but we are LGBT+ & BIPOC Inclusive. You are loved and you are welcome. <3 You’ve been invited to play a scary game. What does a horror adventure or campaign mean? Who’s it supposed to be scary for, you the player or your character? Is it scary like a mystery cartoon or a slasher movie? What content makes it scary? What do you not want to see in a horror story? These are all legitimate questions and ones you should have answers to before participating in a fear-focused D&D adventure. Horror, as a genre, covers broad swaths of material. What you shrug off other players might find personally unsettling—everyone’s experiences and tolerances are distinct and real, even if they differ from your own. Before creating a character, ask your DM and the rest of the group the aforementioned questions, along with any others that come to mind.

What I provide

A challenge. A domain of dread not made for humanoids. I also have a dice bot in discord, as well as D&Dbyond, integrated into my discord server. I will be streaming the game via Discord. I as well offer all of my content beyond D&Dbeyond shared via a DM subscription.

Gameplay details

We will have a full safety meeting and card policy. If you don't like something You can send me a simple emote and we will steer clear of the topic or take 5 and discuss it. I never want to make anyone feel uncomfortable. That being said Bluetspur is a bit darker than most. The number of men, women being hurt or worse is staggering. Bluetspur is Cosmic horror-inspired and contains themes of mental distress, gore, and sorrow. If there are any themes you would like to avoid in the campaign, please let me know ahead of time. The domains of dread are meant to spook you and can make some uncomfortable, and let me know what you don't want and I will intentionally avoid inappropriate themes.

How will character creation work

Characters will be created in our first session, which will be akin to a 'session 0'. If we have new players in the group, this may take some time; otherwise, we can go directly from character creation to a short session, and resume regularly-sized sessions in the following weeks. If you would like to create your character ahead of time, that is also acceptable. If you create a character before have, Know this is a harder game and they may die.
