About the adventure

On the southern end of the Sword’s Coast, deep in the eastern Forest of Tethir, lies a relatively unknown area called the Aspell Woods. Your party is traveling past the forest when you run into a strange wagon...and the weird encounters don't stop there. A strange individual will lead you into the forest where you will discover that a dark force is quickly consuming the land, and it is up to you to save the woods. This is a homebrew one shot written for 5-6 players of 3rd level. As such, backstories are not required, but I do appreciate you putting some thought into your character's personality!

Gameplay details

Players can expect a friendly environment where questions are welcome and no request is a foolish one. As long as you are patient and respectful I will help you get through any issues or questions you have. In regards to safety tools, every player will be asked before the session starts if they foresee any issues given the content warnings specified, and I will be happy to change things if certain issues need to be addressed. Additionally, players are welcome to message me at any point in the session to let me know if they have any problems or if something is making them uncomfortable, even simply sending a quick message of X or N. I well then debrief after sessions to see not only any issues we might have had, but also what people liked or disliked and what they would like to see in the future.
