The Secret City - D&D Noir

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Roll20, Zoom

Dungeons & Dragons 5e



About the adventure

Welcome Friends, to California’s liveliest city, Las Angeles is the entertainment capital, and one of the most secretly furious scenes in all of Northern America. Visit the downtown area and have your hearts' desires fulfilled. How about Hollywood, where some say ancient doorways lie unopened on forsaken graves... Come visit Pasadena or the San Fernando Valley, where some report lights amidst the valley's edge... The inviting beaches of Santa Monica and Malibu, just don't worry about the creatures under their depths... Perhaps take a short ferry ride to Catalina Island just off the edge of Long Beach, where sometimes a person just goes missing every once in a while... Can you survive the Secrets of this city, brave the danger around every odd corner, or maybe you might become one as well...

Additional Details

How to prepare

you will need the following... 1. Either bring your own character or we will create one at session 0. 2. Some understanding of the rules is nice but I can teach you. 3. I would like to know a simple backstory but if you want a big one I am perfectly fine with that as well. 4. I also would like to see my player's reactions as well during the game. 5. I also require mics to be on whilst the game is in session. 6. I do believe you might need to install zoom and we will be using roll20 7. you will need your own dice 8. I also would like to see your character sheets so please use reroll or another ability to send character sheets to me.

What I provide

I will be bringing maps, sheets, and dice if needed for my players. I also can provide miniatures as well as a compelling story.

How will character creation work

Character creation will be worked on in session 0, this game is set in the present day and is completely normal character creation. I would prefer a backstory.
