Waterdeep: Dragon Heist and Beyond!
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Fantasy Grounds, Discord
About the adventure
Hail, and well met, brave adventurers! The City of Splendors, Waterdeep, is a wondrous and vast place, full of intrigue, peril, machinations, and adventure for the brave of heart. In The Yawning Portal, you will find adventurers of all kinds, as well as plots, mysteries, and even an occasional tall tale. A grand urban caper awaits you. Pit your skill and bravado against villains the likes of which you’ve never faced before, and let the dragon hunt begin! This campaign is designed for 1st-level characters. We will play weekly; drop-ins are welcome; check with the DM to see what level we're at this week. The campaign will start with Waterdeep: Dragon Heist for the first five levels, but will continue on with other adventures in and around Waterdeep and the Sword Coast, going all the way up to 20th level.
How to prepare
Hail and well met, brave Adventurers! For our time together, we'll be using Discord for voice chat (video is optional). It will be helpful if you have Discord installed ahead of time from Discord.com. The app is more reliable than the website, so I highly recommend using that. You’ll also want to make sure you have a working microphone to use with Discord. Here is the link to the Discord server. Feel free to join early! https://discord.gg/y3btMjHHVa You’ll need the free version (or higher) of Fantasy Grounds Unity installed on your desktop or laptop. You can download Fantasy Grounds here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/home/home.php NOTE: FANTASY GROUNDS IS NOT A WEB BROWSER BASED APPLICATION. You will need to download and install the DEMO (free) version of Fantasy Grounds for our time together. I've put together a quick and dirty tutorial for Fantasy Grounds in case you've not used it before: https://youtu.be/BE4a7k3_9S8 Let me know if you have any questions. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or message me on SPG or Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/dmbobyo
What I provide
I bring the published Waterdeep: Dragon Heist materials, as well as various supplemental materials to enhance our sessions. In addition, I provide an Ultimate license for Fantasy Grounds, so players don't need to purchase a license of their own. I integrate Syrinscape music and sounds as well.
We'll jump right into the session, so don't be late! While the balance between combat, roleplaying and exploration will vary from week to week, on the average it will balance out. During our first session, we'll cover safety tools and more.
Safety tools used
- Lines and Veils
- Monte Cook RPG Consent Checklist
- Session 0
- X, N, and O Cards
How will character creation work
You'll need to have a character created either in DnDBeyond or Fantasy Grounds ahead of time. A few days prior to the campaign start, I'll provide players with a DnDBeyond campaign link to join that will provide access to all of the available character options. Character creation rules are as follows: _ The campaign will start at 1st level. - Please use either POINT BUY OR STANDARD ARRAY for ability scores. You may roll ability scores in my Discord server using Avrae after you join (I'm happy to provide instructions once you get there.) - Any official D&D rules are acceptable, excluding Unearthed Arcana content. Should you need assistance creating a character in DnDBeyond, I have put together a quick tutorial on that as well: https://youtu.be/dGHcQcBQ0qw
