About the adventure

The Veiled Syndicate has been working on a secret project. The arcane workshop where the research is taking place is hidden high in the mountains and no one has heard from the wizards stationed there in some time. The need you to deliver supplies, but what they are more interested in is a progress report from the workshop. What you find there may surprise you, but knowing what you know about the wizards in the area, it probably wont. This is the first "one shot" adventure that was released from Matt Colville's new digital magazine Arcadia. It is a really fun adventure with some unexpected twists and hilarious overtones. It is an adventure for 5th Lvl Characters, however the experience of the player should not matter. New players, and veterans alike, will have a great time in this session.

How to prepare

You will need a PC or Laptop and a Microphone. You will also need a free demo copy of Fantasy Grounds UNITY (Not classic). You will also need an account on Discord. I will send you the links for the game and also an invitation to my Discord Channel. While not required, players are also highly encouraged to download Syrinscape online player (also free). Instructions on how to download and setup all software will be provided once you have signed up for the game. It is all pretty simple.

What I provide

I have an Ultimate license for Fantasy Grounds Unity, and can host everyone for free. I will send you the connection information before the game. I also have all of the rulebooks and adventure material needed and loaded on the Virtual Table Top. I also have a Discord server that I will send you an invitation too, so that we can chat.

Gameplay details

I normally use the rules as written. If there are any changes or homebrew rules they will be minor and we will discuss them before the game or as they come up.
