Build a God a Coffin

Dungeons & Dragons 5e, The Quiet Year on Discord, Roll20

Dungeons & Dragons 5e



About the adventure

Summer has come to the Heartlands of Kelvastra. An expansive valley of small counties and land claims, surrounded by thick forests and towering cliffsides, the breadbasket of the Kelvastran empire and the center of farmlands and villages that keep the Empire afloat during times of conflict. And with the Lucde Alliance already trying for another push out of their cursed lands and across the Empire's borders, the High Queen Calmorea is once again leaning on the hardworking laborers of the Heartlands to feed her Royal Navy and the war effort. But something has been stalking the fertile lands of the valley. In its wake, rotted crops, burnt villages, and bodies of the unfortunate lay bloating in the sun. While rumors of midnight raids by Lucdite scouts destroying farmlands run rampant in the hamlets and villages in the valley, the Heartland Copper Gazette runs another story: News of a fanatical cult devoted to a woman forsaken by the Wheel has arrived on the summer breeze, bringing fallow and the stench of rot with them. With claims that she is a Forgotten God and this is the effect of her divine will upon the world. Yet, with no definitive proof of their existence, the people of the Heartlands can't rely on the Monarchy to strengthen the paltry forces of village militias and guards with reinforcements from The Captial City of Illvastre. Maybe you came here to investigate yourself. Maybe you just got wrapped up in the whole thing. Maybe you lost someone important and want revenge. No matter your reason, you're here now. Welcome to the Heartlands. What kind of coffin do you build for a God? - This is a homebrew setting and campaign, with ever-expanding lore based on completed campaigns. - LGBTQA+ Friendly - Free Session 0 & Session of The Quiet Year for setting building and character inspiration.

How to prepare

What I provide

What are you getting from me, you ask? Digital maps, likely all handmade through DungeonDraft. Most of the D&D 5E sourcebooks via D&D Beyond. A Homebrew setting with its own pantheon, nations, history, and terminology. Ambient background music and combat music, via a discord bot. Magic Items via The Griffon's Saddlebag.

Gameplay details

Arc-focused session prep, with an emphasis on final encounters (mini-boss and boss battles.) Crunchy combat, with additional goals to avoid "stand here and punch each other" encounters. Character-centered narratives, bringing backstory to the fore. Funny voices. This game does have character race restrictions and no UA. A Digital Consent Checklist will be sent to each player before Session Zero. X, N, & O Cards may be digital or messaged directly to me via discord. Session 0 will be used to discuss the code of conduct and to talk about a blanket consent checklist for the group. It will then launch directly into a game of The Quiet Year to build a starting village and give players inspiration for character creation and ties to other characters. At the end of each game session, we will hold an aftercare talk about the session and how everyone feels about it. After each arc, each player will be sent a feedback survey to check in on the enjoyment level and comfort level of the game, as well as ask what each player wants to see going forward.
