About the adventure

Hello and Welcome! In Waterdeep: Dragon Heist you and your party have heard rumor there is half a million gold pieces hidden somewhere in Waterdeep. They could be anywhere, but through your cunning and adventuring, you will do what you can to ensure that you find them first. After all, finders keepers. Of course, you wont be the only one looking for this massive treasure. Knick clues from other treasure hunters while ensuring they don't gain the upper hand on you, all the while racing towards the ultimate treasure! NOTE: Waterdeep: Dragon Heist is set to take players from level 1 to level 5. Once arriving at level 5, I have the intention of playing through Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage, which Wizards of the Coast has expressly set up both books for this transition. If you are uninterested in conituning after level 5, then no worries, your character can take their winnings (or losings) and head off to a different realm while we continue on.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You'll want to join the discord as outlined in my GM profile, make sure you have a decent microphone, and then a computer that can have 2-3 internet tabs open. NOTE: There is no need to download any software to play in this game. Everything can be done via web browser

What I provide

I'll have the maps, the fun, the dice, the Virtual Tabletop, everything. I also have all sourcebooks available on D&D beyond to allow just about any charcter that you can think up!

Gameplay details

Each session, when you sit down, one of the players will do a small recap of what happened last time. This will set the scene and allow for players to get in the right mindset, then we'll be off to the races, picking up exactly where we had left off. In most cases, the party will be pursuing different goals all bringing them to the ultimate goal of finding the treasure and possibly defeating enemies who might stand in their way to do so. Everything should be done within the Urban setting of Waterdeep so the idea of the gigantic world maps with no idea where to go next will not be an issue here. Waterdeep is big enough to explore itself without ever having to leave the city!

How will character creation work

Character creation usually happens outside of game time (to give you the most of your time) via discord converstion with me. You and I can chat as much as you like about how in depth you'd like your character before we start. On the flip side, if you would like to jump in and start playing, or the idea of chracter creation is daunting at all, I will have a number of pre made characters ready for playing at the time of the first session.
