The Sunless Citadel

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Roll20

Dungeons & Dragons 5e


About the adventure

A classic DnD adventure that is great for introducing players to the world of DnD, and fun for experienced players who haven't played this adventure before. The theme of this module is thus: There has been some rumors of a long abandoned citadel coming to life. Rumors are that a an old dragoncult's fortress has come to life and is producing a fruit that brings long life! It only is sold once during summer and luckily the fruit should be ripening soon. You have gathered a band of misfits who are as eager for adventure, treasure, and glory as you are!

Additional Details

How to prepare

Have a mic, a Roll20 account (free) and do your best to remember important rules when they are told. You will not need to bring a pre-made character sheet or have your own dice. Roll20 provides it all, so just be ready to play and learn as you go. If you have a token or image that you want your character to look like, then just have it ready and let me know!

What I provide

I will provide maps, tokens, and your character can have their own special token as well.

Gameplay details

We will be using the Sunless Citadel Adventure. The maps are done by professionals, so it will look pretty. All you need is a desire to play since there are pre-made characters, but if you have a character concept ready at the start of the session we can take time to quickly make your character. This game might be a one-shot, or it could last up to 3 sessions. The likely hood of it lasting 3 sessions is small, and treat it as a one shot. I just want you to be aware of this.

How will character creation work

There are 4 pre-made characters for every single class. If you have no experience, just pick a pre-made character since this is a one-shot. We want to get into the meat of the action, and if you have a strong character concept, you can make that character off of a pre-made one. Just be ready to get into the action asap! Also, if you want to make a character or use skills use the i (compendium) on roll20 to find and drag over the desired item. It makes things easier, but only holds basic phb stuff in it. To roll stats, roll 4d6 and drop the lowest (1+3+5+6=14).
