The Temple of Fiendish Flavors - World of Pan'gaea
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Roll20
Dungeons & Dragons 5e
About the adventure
Many years ago, the Hamlet of Omelet, once a bastion of pastoral prosperity was slowly engulfed under a growing wave of evil. A small cult to the Fiendish Flavors was ignored and grew into a great temple. It sought to spread its evil far and wide, but the forces of good fought back and crushed it under their collective efforts. For years, adventurous types came through frequently, cleaning up pockets of evil, and saving the citizenry, until all was perfect once more. But now, evil is stirring, and seasoned adventurers are once again needed! This is a 5e campaign for 3-6 adventures and will span from level 3 to 11, or perhaps beyond. It is set in the light-hearted food-pun-filled World of Pan'gaea. (See below for more information on the World of Pan'gaea.) Each session will be about 3 hours. The campaign is a tasteful Pan'gaea reimagining of the old classic, The Temple of Elemental Evil. ------------------------------------------------------------ Welcome to the World of Pan'gaea, where food, magic, and puns are just three sides of the same samosa! Wizard-chefs travel the realms, developing new and magical meals. Rangers and rogues risk their lives tracking down and acquiring the rarest ingredients. Devout clerics pass on the traditional recipes from generation to generation within their orders. Warlocks sign contracts with dark forces in exchange for their quick and dirty culinary secrets. The current era may be a relatively peaceful one, but just below the surface, evil is simmering! Pan'gaea is a whimsical and light-hearted fantasy world. Spellcasting and magic is based on food – especially food puns. Mechanically, the game follows the same rules as typical Dungeons & Dragons, but narrative spellcasting is the product of cooking – typically by eating it, feeding it to the target, or maybe just throwing the food! For example a character might... ...cast 'Burning Hands' by eating a large spoonful of extra hot curry and then spewing a cone of flames. ...cast 'Cure Wounds' on an ally by feeding them a piece of cured meat. ...cast 'Ray of Frost' by throwing a frosted cupcake at their foe. Not everything has to perfectly line up with food, magic, AND puns all the time – two out of three ain't bad! The World of Pan'gaea doesn't have very strict rules about how the magic system works. A Charm Person spell might just a chocolate chip cookie that tastes SO GOOD that it makes a creature want to be your friend – at least for an hour. A character might wield a flintlock pistol that fire pellets of Gunpowder green tea or a giant cooking utensil as a weapon. The important thing is to have fun in a silly food-centric fantasy world!

How to prepare
A microphone is required to participate. A webcam is encouraged, but not necessary. I will have my camera on, and I'd love to see you too! We will be using Discord and Roll20 to play, so you will need (free) accounts for both of them. You might want to download the Discord client as well. Dice and character sheets will be handled within Roll20. You will be expected to have access to any source books or other content your character is built using unless you are using a pre-generated character.
What I provide
As GM, I will provide the adventure itself, including maps and tokens. I will provide pre-generated character options. Dice rolling will be handled through Roll20.
This game contains descriptions of disgusting food, alcohol use, and magical compulsion, comparable to a PG rated film. We will use Session 0 and Lines and Veils before play and X-cards and the open door policy during play as safety tools. Please let me know if there are additional things I need to be aware of to maintain your comfort and safety. Racism, transphobia, ableism, and all other discrimination will not be tolerated.

How will character creation work
We will discuss character ideas and the party's backstory during Session 0. You may either choose from a list of available pre-generated characters or create your own that fits within the setting. Please send your character sheet to me at least 24 hours before the game time for approval. I am available to talk through character creation ahead of time. Player characters are 3rd level with starting equipment. Use the Standard Array or 27 Point Buy for ability scores. Any published material is available, and homebrew and customization will be allowed, subject to review. Sample characters (for use or inspiration) can be found at the following url: https://tinyurl.com/dndpangaea
