About the adventure

*Please note that the regular price of this game is $15 per session, I have reduced the price so people can come and see if they like the group- the discounted rate is for 2 sessions* Chult. A vast wilderness of swarming jungles, chocked with the undead and roamed by bizarre and terrifying beasts of prestigious size, unheard of in mainland Faerun. A land of towering ruins and strange people's, birds that fly through the air, serpents slither in the ruins, and strange flying reptiles spread terror, and yet they all walk as men do. Once upon a time, a great emperor ruled these lands, the Chosen of Ubtao. Their lands stretched from east to west of the peninsula. As time wore on, each generation of the Emperor's descendants divided the land time and time again, and the once-mighty and united Chultians became a divided people of petty kings and nobles squabbling over scraps. Tired of his people's petulance, Ubtao abandoned them a century ago, and not long after, the last remnants of the splendid palaces of the Chult of old were swallowed by the jungles and inhabited by any number of dread creatures. Now the people of Chult take refuge behind the stout walls of Port Nyanzaru (Nye- ann-zaa-ru) and are led by a new dynasty; one of Merchant Princes, based on merit, cunning, and above all else, wealth. And it is to here you set sail, lured by the promise of adventure in this strange land, by magnificent treasures hidden beneath ancient manses forgotten in the jungle, by promises of wealth and fame, or perhaps by compassion for heroes who are having their very life force taken from them. For a terrible curse has fallen upon all the many and varied lands of man, elf, dwarf, and all the others, be they pink, bronze, green, blue, black or white, and every shade between. Resurrection magic is failing, and those who have benefited from it in the past are now dying. A second chance or divine reward stripped away and even the gods themselves are at a loss. One such hero, her adventuring days long behind her, believes she has found the answer and has invited you to meet her... In Chult. Hi everyone- if you have made it this far, congratulations! I am Rob/DM Dargov and I invite you to join our merry band of adventurers for a spot of jungle exploration, swashbuckling, and tomb raiding. This game is my version of Tomb of Annihilation for D&D 5e- I run games in a highly character-driven, long arc style, based on the module, but with generous modifications based on the backstories of the player characters and reference to related material. I always work closely with my players to make sure their character is integrated into the story. The group motto is "Build a hero, play as a team". The game will almost always run. If you show up, there is a game.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You should have a mic, D&D beyond account, be signed up to discord and the Forge (all free). I can help you with these. You should create your own character, and be prepared to make some adjustments to the backstory. I also have stock characters available for every class. We run on foundry so some familiarity would be helpful but is not necessary. As a courtesy to the other players, you should be familiar with the very basic rules of D&D.

What I provide

All D&D beyond content, Foundry VTT, and a huge stock of maps and resources.

Gameplay details

Feel free to use X if the content (or behavior)is making you feel uncomfortable and N(If you are concerned about the direction the topic is going) cards. You can either PM me in the game or discord- or even in the chat. I have an open-door policy (you can step away at any time if you need to for your mental health) with no judgment, and any player can request a 5-minute recess at any time. We will always take a 5-10 minute bio-break during the game, normally two. Tomb of Annihilation deals with the undead considerably, and the inevitability of death, and the threat of disease. Colonialism and the pillaging of ancestral lands is a plot point within the game and I expect players to deal with this in a mature manner. Gore and violence come as standard.
