Tomb of Annihilation - Jumanji Style
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Roll20
About the adventure
It seemed that time had a way of passing by without ever apologizing to those whose shoulders it brushed. Like a child, hurried to get to its destination, it would never pause and take a breath or apologize if it caused one to stumble and fall as it passed by. It was just as selfish, bull-headed and antagonistic as Acererak was. And that was just the way that the lich, long away from his throne and his Cambion brethren, normally liked it. The tall, gaunt lich lifted his golden-brown glove and opened his palm, looked to his device, then to the still lump of flesh at his feet, then to his wards. Things were progressing too slowly for his liking. His gemlike, hollow eyes glistened greedily through the swirling mists of a polished glass sphere. More souls were needed. It did not matter their nobility or strength, what mattered was the quantity; that was the solution. Pull them in like krill to feed his device; from some cushy existence to the jungles of Chult. Had Acererak any semblance of mortality apart from spite, he would have laughed at his own genius. Instead, he returned to the bindings of his work, drawing new sigils upon the cold stone floor. That, dear reader, is when it happened. Sitting there at your computer, reading this listing. For some reason unbeknownst to you, you have found yourself pulled into the plane of Toril and the Chultan Peninsula of Faerûn. Welcome to the jungle. Be on your guard, don’t run out of lives, and most importantly - watch out for the dinosaurs. Prepare to play as yourself; embarking on adventure to lift a horrific death curse, save the world, and hopefully find your way back home! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- Free Session 0! -- Generate Characters together, via a series of questions designed to generate your Class, Race, and Ability Scores; Beyond that, your character is yours to create and flesh out as you will!

We'll work it in rather than choosing a traditional background! -- Explore Chult utilizing custom encounter tables, expanded villages and exploration, and challenging foes to face! -- Dinosaur Rides, Bad Puns, and Acererak might sound like Skeletor.
How to prepare
Please have a microphone. Webcameras are optional! We'll be playing over roll-20, so please have a roll-20 account set up.
What I provide
I will have all sourcebooks ready to reference; and all prepared characters will have functional sheets in roll20 (with click-macro rolls enabled on the sheet) More than happy to convert your character sheet to a form-fillable PDF to have on-hand outside of roll20 if you'd like to print it off!
Gameplay will utilize Discord for Voice, Roll20 for Maps and Character Sheets (I am 100% okay if you prefer to use DNDBeyond and the Beyond20 extension)
Safety tools used
How will character creation work
We will have a Session 0 (at no cost) for everyone to get together and create characters. Abilities, Class, and Race will be generated via an in-depth quiz. All other character options will be at the player's discretion! Due to the nature of the quiz, ability scores may be slightly unbalanced; but it's intended to be in good fun! If anything feels horribly out of balance, I'm more than happy to make reasonable adjustments!
