A Session Zero At Strixhaven


Have a fully fleshed World, NPCs, and Player Characters, after just one session!

This supplement gives players a chance to meet each other at an open day, a year prior to the events in the main Strixhaven book.

This allows player characters, a chance to explore the university, sample all the extracurriculars, meet with all the student NPCs, and even start their heroics early with a fun ecnounter!

Players are also brought together in a meaningful, story driven way, so no moments are awkwardly wasted by players trying to nudge their characters to interact with complete strangers!

Inside, you can find mini-challenges, social encounters, and ways to naturally form relationships in the new points system, without just hand waiving a -1, +1, and +2 in the first day.

This sets your sessions up for success, by allowing players to start off the first year already knowing each other, sharing common knowledge about Strixhaven university life, and ready to band together - whatever comes their way!

Already started your campaign? USE THIS ANYWAY!

Inside this supplement, Game Masters will find in-depth NPC motivations for all major student characters listed in the main book, and have ready-to-go methods to introduce these NPCs in your campaign whenever you like!

Optional character creation rules for a FAST and ENGAGING SESSION ZERO -

Optional character creation with the methods from this book can talk less than a minute. Then players can be thrown into the adventure instantly, as they tour Strixhaven University during a magical open day. Watch the FREE How to Video!

A whole adventure in one session.

There they can make new friends, potentially new enemies, bond as a party, visit key campus locations, and uncover an unsettling mystery.

Suitable for any group, whether new to the game or veteran players, this session zero uses level zero characters to hit the ground running.

Create characters whilst you play!

Players will have the opportunity for character advancement, live backstory building, meeting necessary NPCs, combat, and more.

With original ways to introduce players to the setting, a fresh take on a Session Zero, and a polished encounter complete with a full colour battlemap - this supplement has something for everyone!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
