Hello new friends, and welcome to Iyastera 🙂 If you are here from Session Zero Con, please make yourself and home and peruse the stories on the site…but here are some goodies to get you started!
Adventurers go through a lot…just think about your own RPG party for a moment: How many times in a month do they deal with some sort of betrayal? Monsters and other humanoids attacking them? Cultists? Painful memories from tragic backstories? How do they cope with the, admittedly, traumatic experiences they go through over the course of an adventure? I think we can all agree that our RPG worlds are pretty intense. It can be an emotional experience for both PCs and the players at the table, especially if your party enjoys immersing themselves in roleplay.
Long overdue, here is the finished character sheet for Jawri the Tabaxi Ranger, from the upcoming Heroes of Iyastera mini-campaign, Welcome to the Guild! This sailor-turned mercenary is one of the possible companions your party may meet as they work for the Indomitable Bastions, the newest Adventuring Guild in Iacosta.
“Hey, let’s play D&D this weekend!”
Imagine getting that text on a Thursday night. If you’re a player, this could be really exciting! But what if you’re the “Designated DM” of your group? Are you ready to run a last-minute session? If not, that text can quickly change from exciting to anxiety-inducing in no time at all! You could buy a pre-made module from DMsGuild or check out some Adventurer’s League content, but you’ve been wanting to try your hand at something new, a homebrewed adventure that will be unique to your party.
