About the adventure

This is a game for beginners. We're taking it nice and slow and explaining rules when need be. The barrier between the Plane of Fey and the Material Plane has always been loose around Springarden, a bountiful, blossom-filled estate in the heart of the Springwood. Tiny sprites and pixies freely travel between the Plane of Fey’s eternal sunset and the garden’s perpetual spring. Each year, a confluence of stars weakens the barrier to the Plane of Fey and marks the annual Feyfest, a fey-themed festival. Drawn by the radiant energy that seeped through the weakened barrier between planes is the target of this monster hunt: The Suneater Owlbear. Coming from the Plane of Fey, the suneater owlbear is accustomed to the paltry solar offerings of the eternal sunset. The midday sun of the Material Plane, on the other hand, is practically a feast. What the owlbear didn’t account for was being stuck on the Material Plane throughout its daynight cycle, nor the hunger that arose from spending half a day in darkness. Now, it has settled into Springarden, home of the Blossom Union, a sect of druid-monks that care for the holy wood. The owlbear has made a lair of the Union’s most holy shrine and spends its nights satiating its hunger on the numerous giant, flying koi that swim in its waters. The innate, soothing magic of the garden has been twisted by the owlbear’s psyche; travellers to the garden have experienced alarmingly aggressive mood swings. Naturally, this situation is quite an inconvenience for the Blossom Union, who rely on the garden to attract pilgrims, visitors, and coin, especially during Feyfest, which is currently in full swing.

How will character creation work

There will be an open Foundry Server running on Forge (link provided in the prep info) where you can login and make the character. This can be done before session start. You can also just make it anywhere else and send it to me and I'll make the character on Foundry. Alternatively I can make a new character for you if you just want to try something new, or are new to D&D.
