About the adventure

"Once, in the time before the gods forgot their names, when the world was flat and floated on a sea of chaos, there was an age of gleaming cities, untamed wilderness, enlightened devils, greedy spirits, and mighty heroes. This was the age of the Exalted, champions empowered by the highest of gods." - - [Excerpt from the Tomb of Dreams an Exalted 3rd Edition Jumpstart page] This is a one-shot (single, pre-made adventure) set in the lands of Creation (Exalted). Here's the write-up about it... "Tomb of Dreams will jumpstart your group’s Exalted game—all you need to start playing Exalted Third Edition is this book, pencils, and 10-sided dice. Included here are the game’s core rules, five pre-generated characters, and a self-contained scenario that can start a new campaign or that Storytellers can use in an ongoing chronicle. And for groups that already have the Exalted Third Edition main rulebook, Tomb of Dreams will serve as an introduction for new players and a quick reference during play—anyone intimidated by that prodigious volume need only read Part 1 of this book to get started." - - [Excerpt from the Tomb of Dreams an Exalted 3rd Edition Jumpstart page] Since this is a one-shot, I've reduced the price down to the minimum ($5) and would greatly appreciate a review from any who joins! Thanks :)

How to prepare

- You will need a working mic and webcam. - Please install Discord and Foundry VTT, and ensure all troubleshooting is done before the session start. I have a paid Foundry VTT serial, so there's no need to purchase a serial unless you really want to support the creators and have a copy for yourself. - If you have never played Exalted before, you are HIGHLY encouraged to purchase Tomb of Dreams an Exalted 3rd Edition Jumpstart retailing $1.99 ( https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/208891/Tomb-of-Dreams-an-Exalted-3rd-Edition-Jumpstart ) as it will allow you to read the first part of the book, which will get you sufficiently started. (*There's also a special on the Exalted 3E Core bundle at this time for $4.15! Link here: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/363446/Exalted-3E-Core-BUNDLE ) However, I will have my copy to share at the session (as well as other Exalted books).

What I provide

-As stated above, I have a paid Foundry VTT serial, so there's no need to purchase a serial unless you really want to support the creators and have a copy for yourself. -The Discord server is already set up. Feel free to join via this link: https://discord.gg/Mmv7tXkF The channel #spg-meeting-spot is for us to talk, collab, and ask questions. - Handouts, maps, and other types of materials (if created) will be passed out during gameplay.

Gameplay details

This game is set in in the Exalted universe wherein you play a demi-god! To that end, players may RP and/or experience realistic violence/combat, interactions with spirits, and other types of tricksy, ethereal entities. My top priority is a fun and interactive experience that gets you hooked into the Exalted universe. Open and direct communication with the group is encouraged. Should there be an issue or question that isn't meant for the group, please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly. Again, good communication and a positive, motivated attitude will make this experience great! Lastly, there is an Open Door policy, wherein a player may leave the table at any time, without judgment.

How will character creation work

- Pre-genned character sheets are already made and ready to go. If you've already purchased a copy of the ToD Jumpstart, you can find all of the sheets at the back of the manual. -There are 5 chars max for the one-shot, and it would be best if every player took a look at the manual beforehand to have a primary pick and secondary pick ready to go. At the beginning of the session, we will hash out who is playing which char if we haven't done so in Discord chat before then.

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Low
  • Roleplay: High
  • Puzzles: Low
  • Experience Level: Open to all
