    About the adventure

    Those damn heroes! They've had it easy for too long! Time for the MONSTERS to have a turn! - Build a dungeon! - Summon minions! - Raid for treasure! - Pursue evil agendas! Play as the bad guys - the 'Wicked Ones' - as you further the cause of evil through the lands, building up dungeons, filling them with monsters, traps, and secrets... This is the evil of Saturday morning cartoons, with a hint of murder, splattery gore, and rude jokes. Cackle maniacally as you twirl your mustache* and plot the downfall of the forces of good - but don't antagonise them too much, or bands of pesky heroes will seek you out in your lair! Based on the narrative engine used in Blades in the Dark, Wicked Ones is a (mostly) lighthearted romp through the Forces of Darkness. Reminiscent of Dungeon Keeper (and Dungeon Keeper 2), create a cabal of intelligent monsters to undermine the Kingdom! *Not all evil can grow a mustache. If you can't grow your own, removing the mustache from a hapless hero and twirling that is almost as good.

    How to prepare

    You will need: - access to Discord and Roll20. - headphones to prevent feedback. Other than that, you're all good! I mean, you can cosplay as your character if you like, but you don't even need to have video on... Still, if you want to sit in your room, dressed as a bugbear, that's cool - I respect that.

    What I provide

    A childhood spent watching toy adverts thinly disguised as cartoons, professionally voiced NPCs, the rules, and the rest of the universe!

    Gameplay details

    A Lines and Veils checklist will go out once you sign up for the game, along with an invite to my Discord server. For most people, the below disclaimer won't be necessary, but just in case someone sees 'evil game' as an excuse to be a horrible person: There are LESS content tags than normal in this game, because the level of 'evil' is at about a PG13 to 15 age rating, with a bit of swearing and gore for good measure. This is a game of FUN EVIL, not an opportunity for actual sociopaths to live out their twisted fantasies on my NPCs... Please only join up if you understand boundaries! There is a hard Line on all Sexism, racism, homophobia and transphobia at my table - it's a big NO! Equally, sex is only ever a consensual act in any story I tell, please don't be awful! Lines and Veils will be followed at all times and an X card is always available.

    How will character creation work

    We can discuss characters on Discord, but creating the characters and the Dungeon, are a collaborative exercise - pretty much a mini-game of its own! As such, the first session (session 0) is for character creation and dungeon building in campaign play and we'll have pre-gens available for one-shots!

    Players can expect

    • Combat/Tactics: High
    • Roleplay: High
    • Puzzles: High
    • Experience Level: Open to all
