Extra Life 2021 – D&D One Off The Darktides Night

For those of you considering participating in the Dungeons and Dragons One Off session here are all of the details. I want to say I am extremely excited to be running this game and am really looking forward to what kind of craziness will be explored.

Make sure you check out all of the details and donate to our Extra Life Campaign.

Event Description

Step into the world of Zyathé. Discover a haunted tree house and uncover a mystery that will surely chill you to the bone. Darktide’s Night is an evening when the spirits cross more easily into the material plane. It is best to stay indoors, whispered prayers to your deities on your lips, and protections at your doors.

Characters

We will be using pre-generated 2nd level characters. Each character will have a unique backstory and character traits to aid with roleplaying. At the start of session I will provide a link to the character sheets and each player will be able to select a character. If two players select the same character and can’t resolve who get will play the character, then I will roll a dice to determine.

Primary Rule

Have fun, but not at the expense of others. I see my job as the DM is to facilitate all of the players into having a good time. I hope you can bring the same attitude to the game.

Dice and Dice Rolls

I am using a trust system. Roll real dice, tell me what you rolled. Stay honest. This is a one off and it’s about the experience and the environments you will explore. Cheating at a few dice rolls won’t provide you any real significant challenge and a few failures ultimately are better for the story as a whole.

Wrapping Up

WiscoDice at the Best Four Days in Gaming

Suzanne and myself made the trip this September to our first convention in well over a year and a half. Gen Con 2021 was an amazing experience. There may have been reduced capacity, typical vendors were not there, and some vendors that were there had booths that were significantly different. That didn’t make the convention any less awesome. In fact, in many ways it made Gen Con 2021 the best Gen Con to date!

There was so much to see and experience this year. With smaller crowds and lines you were able to more easily enjoy the things that you wanted to do. Events may have been hard to get signed up for, but it wasn’t so hard if you wanted to walk up and try a game. There are always no shows for events and this year was not an exception. On top of that, almost the entire Hall A was dedicated to open gaming which made that section of the convention a very happening place each evening!
