About the adventure

Has your character died without a second chance? Perhaps you want the chance to give your character life yet again, or just the opportunity to share your story before passing on. Whatever the case may be, Death's Door is open to you! Straight from the pages of the Seeker's Guide to Twisted Taverns comes an incredible creation by Eldermancy, Death's Door provides that final bit of roleplay you wanted out of your favorite character with a tragic end, and even hope to play them again one day! It doesn't matter who you were, where you're from or what you've done, all are welcome to play here. This sandbox style game for 5th Edition is meant for a character of any level, and is best suited for ones that have actually been killed while playing, not just creating a character with a tragic backstory. Share your past adventures with players potentially from around the world, and just maybe if you make it back to the mortal plane you'll have many more adventures yet to come! This game uses TaleSpire, a 3D TTRPG platform available on Steam.

How to prepare

Launch TaleSpire ahead of time, make sure your resolution is correct and the program works as intended. You will need a microphone Have a Discord account made and make sure to join when I send your invite link. Download BeyondtheSpire for Firefox or Google Chrome (Also works with OperaGX) beforehand as well: Using this tool is very easy, just be sure to turn off dice rolling on your Beyond character sheet by clicking the gear next to the character name and the switch will be on the menu that pops up. Your character's stats, hit bonuses and damage dice will be highlighted and when you click them while Beyond the Spire is active it will send your bonuses to TaleSpire and you can roll them in game.

What I provide

Scenes and dungeons made on TaleSpire. Maps posted on the discord. All core rulebooks for 5e as well as an array of 3rd party material from Kobold Press and DMs Guild.

Gameplay details

Be open to sharing the spotlight here. This is a game about sharing stories most of all - You'll be given a choice to bring your character back to life, but not all will succeed. SAFETY: At the start of the game we will go over lines and veils, lines being things that have no business appearing in a game meant to be fun and engaging and veils being things that can be hinted at but not focused on, like pulling the curtains over a scene. If at any time you as the player feel uncomfortable you can send me a message during the game and I will discontinue any further reference to the subject. Most of my games will contain adult language (R) and I will allow it from players as long as it is purely for fun or used for expression in character - I expect my players to be kind and courteous towards each other always. Name calling, and major PC betrayals are hard lines for my games. The rogue can pickpocket the paladin, but I draw the line at killing fellow PC's for any reason. Otherwise murder hobos are okay in my books as well.

How will character creation work

Bring back any past character of yours has died with all their equipment (Don't expect to be able to use all of it on the pocket dimension this plane of existence takes place on, you're in death's playground after all) and adapt them to 5th Edition. I will be giving everyone a link to the discord shortly after accepting your application.
