About the adventure

As special agents hired by the Masked Lords of Waterdeep, you have been tasked to find hidden passages to The Xanathars hideout. After weeks of hunting you finally get a lead! But where will this lead take you? This adventure is a one shot set up for level 3 players. A Level 3 Character set up using standard array or point buy. You're free to use any published dnd work (minus unearthed arcana), but if you really want to use a 3rd party piece please just ask me in advance and we'll figure it out. Characters also get a free feat so long as your race/background doesn't provide you one. You can choose from Tough, Skilled or Magic Initiate. A Roll20 account Discord If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me, and I look forward to seeing you at the virtual table!

Additional Details

How to prepare

They will need access to Roll 20 and Discord. It is especially important to create characters ahead of time. In session mics will be required, while video will be optional. There is a way for them to put their character sheets into Roll20, but if they desire they can also use DnD beyond, and a program known as Beyond 20.

What I provide

I will bring extra character sheets if needed. I will attempt to do some voices, and the adventure will have means for some flexibility. I will be running the game in my Vtuber persona, and am always looking for new tools to help make player experiences awesome.

Gameplay details

I will use X, N, and O in chat (I will probably talk about it as red, yellow, green), and there will also be a digital guide to it on the Roll 20. Break will be provided at about halfway through the adventure, and if needed by the group. Debriefing will happen at the end. Allowing for players to talk about the session, ask questions, and give feedback. Stars and Wishes will be at the very end, as an extra opportunity to provide feedback.

How will character creation work

What level will the characters be? Level 3 Players will need to create characters in advance, and instructions will be provided. In case of emergency I will also have spare characters. For Roll20 they will also need to provide me with an image of their character, so I can add it as a token.
