About the adventure

“Some doors aren't meant to be opened." So... you will have to stop this. Yes, anyone else could do it, the guard, other adventurers and heroes... but they won't. No one even believes this... tomb to be a real place. And perhaps they are right... there is a... minor chance that whatever legends were spread about The Black Sun are nothing but that, legends. Stories to scare children, or to enhance the glory of ancient kingdoms in the eyes of history. But do you want to take that risk? Bet the fate of the kingdom on luck, and sit idle while you could be helping? So yeah, you have to at least check it! If the stories are not enough motivation, then maybe treasure is? Pharaohs are always buried with a lot of gold, and if this tomb was never found then... Well, help yourself! That is, if you survive..." Join this thrilling dungeon crawl and race against time to stop an ancient evil from rising. The adventure is level 8, full of threats and traps. Choose your path and brave the Tomb of the Black Sun!

Gameplay details

As an action adventure, this one-shot depicts sequences of violence. Additionally, the adventure includes certain events which portray body horror, death, undeath, cults, brain-washing, sacrifice, murder. I do my best to ensure that none of these topics are overly gratuitous in their presentation or needlessly gruesome in detail. The purpose of tabletop roleplaying games is to have fun experiencing a unique adventure and story together as a collaborative storytelling experience. I can easily modify descriptions or scenarios as appropriate to avoid content that the party might be uncomfortable with. I use the Tabletop RPG safety tool X-card by John Stavropoulos integrated on my Foundry setup. Anyone can press the X button, or say "Let's talk for a moment", "I need a break" and we will stop, talk about it and continue later.

How will character creation work

Characters start at level 8, you can create your character on DnD beyond and send the link to me, I will import it into Foundry. Race, background and class should be from the Player's Handbook, Xanathar's Guide to Everything, Tasha's Cauldron of Everything and Monsters of the Multiverse, excluding any races with flying speed and Clerics of the Twilight or Peace domains. Feats are allowed, HP is average, optional class rules from Tasha's Cauldron of Everything are allowed. You can customize your origin in an existing race to swap racial bonuses, but nothing else may be swapped. Please check your spells and feats to make sure they are from one of the sources above. Spells and feats coming from other sources will not be allowed (such as specific scenarios like Eberron, Ravnica and Stryxhaven). You start with the initial equipment set available for your class and background and an additional 1000GP to upgrade your things or buy additional mundane items (including armor and weapon). You can also choose 1 rare and 1 Uncommon Magical Item to start with. In addition, everyone begins with one Potion of Greater Healing, you can swap it for another consumable magical item of equivalent magnitude if you want, but check with me first.
