Additional Details

How to prepare

Players are expected to have a working microphone. At the moment, I'm not insisting on video, but, we will see how everyone feels about that once we get started. You will need at least a demo copy of Fantasy Grounds Unity and please ensure that it is updated before trying to log in.

What I provide

Players can expect the Game Discord Channel to be kept up to date as well as frequent updates during the week. The campaign will be a mix of both WotC adventures as well as my own personal spin. All software and books will be available in Fantasy Grounds.

Gameplay details

Players can expect proficient use with Fantasy Grounds as well as an open atmosphere where everyone is welcome.

How will character creation work

Available Materials: All WotC materials are okay. Please, no playtest material at this time. Third party material will be considered on a case by case basis. Backgrounds: As this campaign is set in Forgotten Realms and will almost entirely focus on Waterdeep, please give some thought to making characters that are connected in some way to either the Sword Coast or Waterdeep itself. Having connections to the setting will make the game a lot more fun for everyone. You will create a character prior to game time either on Fantasy Grounds or by sending me a pdf of the character sheet on my Discord server. I will also have Channels set up for everyone to chat and get to know each other prior to the game starting. The best place to get started is my Discord Server at
