About the adventure

A thief (or thieves) has been attacking people, stealing both random objects and valuables; the party is tasked with tracking down and catching the perpetrators. Explore an abandoned building, defeat unusual monsters, and (maybe) return some stolen goods! If you're reading this, you're probably seeing my placeholder page!

Additional Details

How to prepare

Ideally, you should have a microphone, although this is optional. An Avrae-compatible sheet is required (and can be provided); Avrae is D&D Beyond's Discord bot and facilitates Discord-based play.

What I provide

I will host the game on my private D&D server, where I have Avrae and my other games at. Avrae-compatible sheets will be provided if you don't know how to access them.

Gameplay details

First, you'll have to find the thief, via asking around town for info, using yourselves as bait, or other methods. Then, explore the thief's hideout, being careful, before finding and defeating the thief.
