About the adventure

This is a one-shot adventure for 3 or 4 player characters of 5th level, set in a dreary waystation on the outskirts of a swamp. Things have been spotted moving through the swamp as of late and on the night of your arrival, unknown forces creep just beyond the lamplight. There's gold on offer for any who choose to fight—provided they survive what's to come. You'll need: • A D&D Beyond 5th-level character sheet • 3 hours of free time • The desire to fight some undead creatures

How to prepare

In order to prepare for the session, you'll need to create your character on D&D Beyond, join the group Discord, and have any notetaking material or software ready. All dice rolling will happen over D&D Beyond, with no exceptions for physical die or other dice rollers. You'll need a microphone for voice chat over Discord, but a webcam is optional*. Please familiarize yourself with at least the Basic Rules of D&D 5e prior to joining the game. *I personally find that everyone being on camera makes communication much easier, but I understand not everyone feels similarly. If you prefer not to use a webcam, that's no problem and no one is going to question you about it.

What I provide

As your Dungeon Master, I'll be providing the private Discord server, artwork for the important NPCs and monsters, all the necessary materials for the adventure (including digital handouts), and many character voices.

Gameplay details

This will be a high-stakes 5th Edition (5e) one-shot played over Discord voice chat. See additional details below: • We'll be using D&D Beyond to track combat and character sheets*. Please have a 5th-level character sheet** ready to go (use the Standard Array to determine your Ability Scores) on D&D Beyond prior to the start of the session. • Character death is a possibility as described in the Player's Handbook. In the event their player character dies early, players may take control of an NPC for the remainder of the session. • We'll be taking a 10-minute break around the halfway mark, but players are more than welcome to step away as needed. • Feel free to message me prior to the start of the session with any questions you have about the game or character creation. *As long as you have a complete 5th-level character sheet ready in D&D Beyond prior to the start of the session, any level of familiarity with D&D 5e is welcome. I will not be making exceptions for earlier edition rulesets. **You'll primarily be fighting Evil Undead and Humanoids in a Swamp environment.
