About the adventure

Your recent memories are gone and you have been left to rot in a hospital for the mentally insane. Fiendish creatures have taken over and even your dreams aren't safe as a ghoulish figure stalks you in them. Why are you here and do you want to get out? This game will have heavy Lovecraftian themes and should induce a sense of dread within your characters. With my own homebrewed Sanity Mechanic, you’ll be juggling between your character’s mental health and physical. Characters have a chance to grow insane, become cultists, develop strange fears and habits. Can your character stay safe within their own mind? This game is adapted from Pathfinder's Strange Aeons and will have homebrew rules, items, and creatures. For classes, Artificer is not allowed. For races, undead and constructs are not allowed in the early game but if you make a new character later they are free to be used. This will be voice only on Discord. I accept all players, new and old to join the game and hope everyone can have a great time. The game will be weekly and hopes to bring the party from level 1-20+

How will character creation work

Characters will start at lvl 1 and will be made in session 0, though they can be made before hand. Stats will be rolled using the 4d6 take away the lowest method. All rolls will be done on Roll20 for me to see them. As long as the total of your first 6 rolls is a total 0f 70 or greater you'll keep it even if you have a stat lower than 8. There will be extra creation things as well to be discussed later.
