    The video game world has introduced a virtual reality sandbox based on the grand daddy of all fantasy rpgs, Dungeons and Dragons. People have been plugging in and venturing across the realms exploring the worlds created for them. Some have set up shops, or made lives as simple merchants or citizens. Though the biggest draw for many is to create a character and adventure.

    The immersion has been heralded as one of the best created so far for Virtual Reality. The engines used to generate the world have made things better with the number of players signing in. As it uses the computing power of the joined systems and so the world gets better with the more people playing in it.

    Some spiritualists have posited that the consensual reality created by so many people is dangerous though this has largely been laughed off as mmorpgs have been on the market for decades and no harm has come from it.

    Your character has been worked on and a new avatar has been generated and just like most mmorpgs. Players can be any race, gender, or class the game allows. Thus that cute elf girl your talking to might be a beer bellied fifty year old guy and that buff barbarian tiefling might be a fourteen year old Asian girl.

    Welcome to the Realms

    A Brief Summary of the various adventures:

    Rise of Tiamat

    TiamatBanner.jpg
    This adventure is very direct very focused without much sandbox exploration. The Cult of the Dragon is rising in power with one of their members ultimate goals being to free Tiamat the Queen of the evil dragons from hell releasing her into the world and bringing an age of dragon kinds rule into the world. The characters race to stop the aims of the cult and stop one of the most powerful forces of evil from martialing draconic forces and bringing about a dark age on civilization. Not much room for characters to explore their characters or freely wander where they will.

    Princes of the Apocalypse

    PrincesBanner.jpg
    The elemental cults martialed under the so called Princes of the Apocalypse have begun to make their presence felt in the realms. Wide ranging travel with a lot of overland travel yet still mostly a lot of dungeon crawling exploration. More free ranging with some character choice but still a fairly direct battle against the evil forces of the elemental cults. A good balance of classes would do well here.

    Out of the Abyss

    OutoftheAbyssBanner.jpg

    Imprisoned by the Drow in the underdark. Yet they are not the worse things crawling about that dark realm. Someone had set free the demon lords of the abyss and their dark presence is spreading evil and madness across the whole of those underground realms. Yet the underdark can only contain their darkness so long before it explodes onto the surface world. A lot of exploration. Races with darkvision, and classes like ranger, druid, etc. will do well here.

    Curse of Strahd

    CurseBanner.jpg
    Dark brooding gothic horror. Plenty of free range travel, exploration, both outdoor and in settings as well as interactions with NPCs.
    This is it's own setting really as the lands of Barovia are trapped in the darkness of the Shadowfell.

    Storm Kings Thunder

    StormBanner.jpg
    The Giants are raging across the realms and the small folk are caught in the way. What has caused the giants to suddenly become a threat and clash not only with each other but the small folk. A chance to calm these tensions and set things straight is the goal of this adventure. Plenty of wandering and a bit of exploration, infiltration, and interaction fill out the adventure here.

    Tomb of Annihilation

    TombBanner.jpg
    Jungle exploration, ancient ruins, DINOSAURS, Undead, UNDEAD DINOSAURS, what can I say, this is one crazy exploration. Indiana Jones, Pulp action, adventure and oh there is a death curse too.

    Waterdeep Dragon Heist and Dungeon of the Mad Mage

    WaterdeepBanner.jpg

    Urban pulp crime investigation, talking, exploration, and a race for a huge some of embezzled money followed by one of the most famous dungeon crawls in all the realms.

    Ghosts of Salt Marsh

    GhostsBanner.jpg
    Seaside and sea faring adventure. Character interaction, diplomacy, exploration, and pirates, smugglers etc.
    All in and around a semi quiet little sea side town known as Saltmarsh and it's environs.


    Ravnica *Magic the Gathering Setting/s*

    RavnicaBanner.jpg

    It's own cosmos, a world covered in city built upon city, with warring guilds vying for power while trying to maintain a balance on the surface. This setting will attach to the other Magic the Gathering settings which coincidentally has it's own version of Curse of Strahd.

    Eberron *It's own setting and world*

    EberronBanner.png

    Pulp action and adventure in a post war world. Think World War II on a fantasy world after the atom bombs were dropped. Though no one knows who dropped the bombs and an entire kingdom was wiped out and is still dealing with the aftermath of what happened. An interesting setting with plenty of factions, adventure and things going on. Flying ships, magic trains, and a pseudo Final Fantasy VII feel to it.

    The characters spin into view in the starting area of Port Nyanzaru

    All around as the players are taking everything in it is like a Disney movie where they stepped into a singing part.

    You appear in a tropical city under the blazing sun. The familiar sounds of a harbor- creaking ropes, slapping
    waves, heavy barrels rolling across cobblestones-mingle with voices shouting and cursing in an unfamiliar
    language filled with clicks, inhalations, and singsongy words that make it sound almost musical. The aroma of
    unfamiliar spices and tropical fruit mixes with the wharf side smells of fish, tar, and canvas.
    Beyond all that, Port Nyanzaru is an explosion of color. Buildings are painted in bright shades of blue, green,
    orange, and salmon pink, or their walls are adorned with murals portraying giant reptiles and mythical heroes.
    Every building sports baskets and clay urns of colorful flowers or is draped in leafy, flowering vines . Minstrels
    in bright clothing adorned with feathers and shells perform on street corners. Multicolored pennants and sun
    awnings flutter atop the city walls. A crowd of children dressed in feathered hats and capes races past you,
    squealing in delighted terror as a street performer costurned as a big-toothed lizard stomps and roars behind
    them. The whole city seems to be bustling, sweating, laughing, swearing, and singing.

    Malek looks around, "Nice, Dinosaurs !" His kangaroo mouse pokes it's head out of it's pouch and looks around sniffing the air.
    Malek takes the time to marvel at the graphics and realism he sees all around him. Eventually moving away from the log in location.
    "Well Kodo, this place sure has possibilities." He says to the mouse.

    Walking around a bit and trying to figure what angle to take as an adventurer in this bright and seemingly happy city of jungle splendor.
    Being brand new a bit of sight seeing and trying to see where he could earn some coin was in order. This was not some Eastern European Middle or Dark Age fantasy setting it was something totally new.

    Malek finds a job cleaning out giant rats from a cellar it is not easy work and he needs to run for his life at least twice.
    Though baiting them with rancid meat ends up working and the few that he killed on earlier attempts pales compared to the group
    he manages to do in when they are all tearing into the meat.
    It takes two days to accomplish and 2 of his starting gold to spend the night and get his own meals but he is able to
    clear out the cellar restoring the taverns ability to offer it's liquors again.

    Layla appeared just outside town and looked around. Nice place. Plenty of people. Not too much official presence visible. Her ferret, Frostfire, chittered on her shoulder, taking in the new smells.

    She approached the usual market day crowd and casually but respectfully acknowledged a local constable. He nodded recognition of her type. She proceeded to the local tavern. Usually a prime source of gossip, news, and likely opportunities.

    Layla inside the Tipsy Turtle Dockside:

    Inside the bar a much more cosmopolitan mix of races could be found.

    Layla nurses her drink listening to various patrons using her small size and sharp ears.
    One table a group of sailors complained of a huge dragon turtle out in the bay that demanded a tribute in gold and magic.
    Their captain took some of each of their wealth to pay the tithe and now they all need to make money to insure they can leave if the beast stops them again.

    Another table she hears hushed tones and thieves cant putting together what she can hear these are pirates on R&R here.

    The barkeep is a local Chultan who has a winged monkey on his shoulder. He zips about making and mixing drinks for the patrons.

    "Hello there little miss, another fruit drink for you ?" He asks with a wide grin. One of his teeth glints with gold.

    Layla there is also a lot of nautical talk in the place which is almost a language onto itself.

    "Sounds good. I'm new around here and looking for good opportunities. What would you recommend? I mean, don't want any trouble with local law."
    "Frostfire, get out of that bowl. Those aren't ferret treats."

    The barkeep laughs, "Your furry snake is like my monkey. Well let me see." he says in a deep brassy voice.

    "One of the inns in town was looking for help. The Thundering Lizard."

    He rubbed his chin a bit,"If you know your way about a ship, lots of captains looking for crew. Ooh the dockmaster is looking to deal with pirates but thats a rather big task. Hey your the right size how are you at dinosaur jockeying ?"

    Layla laughed.
    "Dinosaur? As in those giant lizards that eat their weight in cattle a day? Never tried, but sounds like an adventure. Tell me more."

    She pets Frostfire and offers him a dried treat.
    The ferret chitters and settles down to focus on the snack.

    "Furry snake, huh? He would take offense if he could understand you. Frostfire dislikes snakes.
    I rescued him from a pit fight when he was little."

    Layla:

    "Yes, those big lizards." he laughs.
    "They race them in the city. If you are a good rider you can make some nice coin. Even more if you bet coin on the races."

    He looks to the ferret,"Strange creature havent really seen one like it."

    Layla grins. "Sounds like lots of fun.
    Who do I talk to about getting me one?
    And as for Frostfire, I acquired him in another country. They were being bred for pit fighting.
    Barbaric practice..

    She stroked his fur and smiled at his chittering.

    "Get what a dinosaur ? You want to buy one of your own ? You will want to go out to Tiryki Anchorage its east of the city just a short distance from the gates. You can hear and smell the dinosaurs before you see them. "

    "Don't know about buying one, but I'd love to try riding one. And the smell wouldn't bother me.
    I've slept and camped in some bad places.
    What would you say are good odds, generally speaking?"
