About the adventure

Waterdeep: Dragon Heist is a 5th-edition Dungeons & Dragons adventure that takes place in the city of Waterdeep. The adventure runs through levels 1–5. Waterdeep is a bustling city along the Sword Coast of Faerun. Players that are looking for a more tightly packed adventure that centers more around the affairs of the city and the factions there within, Waterdeep Dragon’s Heist is a perfect fit. Famed explorer Volothamp Geddarm needs you to complete a simple quest. Thus begins a mad romp through the wards of Waterdeep as you uncover a villainous plot involving some of the city’s most influential figures. There is intrigue to be found in this grand urban caper! Many interesting NPCs are there to interact with in ways that may to help or hinder the party. You may manipulate one faction against another, simply hunt for the gold or engage in a scavenger hunt to find even greater treasures. Pit your skill and bravado against villains the likes of which you’ve never faced before, and let the hunt begin!

Additional Details

How to prepare

Characters will be created on D&D Beyond either before or during Session Zero, You will need a mic & speakers for discord, a roll 20 account for maps. To message me, you should friend me on Discord (Katrin#9646) or contact me with a character concept here on StartPlaying at least 48 hours before game time so we won't have to waste paid gaming time. I am typically on discord and not running anything from 2-4 pm every weekday. Also You might want to send me an image of your PC to generate a Roll20 token for your PC and and familiar or animal companion your PC wants.

What I provide

I will provide the source materials via D&D Beyond, A safety toolkit, maps, Roll20 tokens, over 4 decades of TTRPG experience and a good time for all.

Gameplay details

I allow a fair amount of narrative authority, but some things are set. Such as the deities and racial cultures of the world. Players are expected to keep up with their notes and character sheets (although the DM should always have an up to date copy) XP will be granted at the start of the session after it was earned. XP is granted for RP as well as finishing a quest, collected treasure and encounters completed. The DM doe not award killing blow XP to a single PC, but does divide XP amongst all who participated in the encounter. Session Zero will include discussion of safety tools and triggers. They can be discussed and should be discussed in a mature respectful manor. There is a checklist questionnaire that will need to be filled out at the end of Session Zero. Your reasons for wishing to have something excludes are not required… We do not require you to justify your triggers, only to let us know what to avoid. Bad things do exist in my games so the heroes have something to overcome and stop. Player’s may make characters of whatever gender and orientation they desire, but they are not allowed to pressure other players or PCs regarding relationships. All sex scenes will be treated as a fade to black and do not contribute towards character advancement. The standard races are listed in The Player’s Handbook. If you have a character idea that isn’t one of these races, talk to me. I will need to have full information on the race you want to play. There are source books for other races and I probably have them. Some racial tweaks might even be allowed. However, the DM reserves the right to disallow some races, classes, sub-classes & feats.

How will character creation work

Characters will be created on D&D Beyond either before or during Session Zero. I recommend a full set of polyhedral dice (or you may use the dice roller on D&D Beyond - But in my experience they always roll low) When you decide to join, please think of a character concept and message me the idea. We will have a session 0 to talk about backstory that might connect to this campaign. I will send you a link for D&D Beyond to join this campaign with your character and we will make your character right there. To message me about your amazing ideas you should friend me on Discord (Katrin#9646) or contact me with a character concept here on StartPlaying at least 48 hours before game time so we won't have to waste paid gaming time. I am typically on discord and not running anything from 2-4 pm every weekday.
