Additional Details

How to prepare

Please have access to D&D Beyond, Roll20, and Discord (all free accounts). You will need a microphone and headphones, and a quiet place to join in. Cameras are not required, but I do enjoy seeing your faces at my table.

What I provide

I will provide maps and other visual aids on Roll20 during the session. Our discord server also has additional admin and moderators to assist you if you have questions about the server, character creation, or game play in general. The DnD Beyond campaign link will provide access to character creation content above the Basic Rules through my D&D Beyond Master subscription; however, I do not own all published content (yet).

Gameplay details

Please note that the presence of a Content Warning Tag is not a guarantee that it appears in games. I choose to err on the side of caution and warn of possible content - this is NOT a license to do it, and this list can be modified. We will discuss safety tools, and you will be able to express publicly or privately anything you wish to avoid in-game. Additionally, a safety consent form will be sent to you before the session and lines and veils will be reviewed as a party before the adventure begins during Session 0. This campaign is based on and inspired by horror movies and gothic literature. Elements of horror will be present, but modifications can be made based on lines and veils. Racism, Sexism, Homophobia, Transphobia, and Ableism are not accepted at my table. No exceptions.
