D&D Adventure Begins - The Kraken

Welcome to Adventure Begins!

You and your party of heroes are on a journey through the lands of Neverwinter. You’ll work together to overcome challenges, battle monsters, and defeat the big Boss monster that’s terrorising the realm.
Step forward, brave heroes, adventure awaits.

Things to know:

  • Your stamina is set to 10. Every time you are injured, it decreases. Once it reaches zero, you are dead. You can be revived by foriting your gold, OR if you have none, another player can help by paying one gold.
  • You are given (or can select) a backpack that has certain (random) items to spark your imagination to help with challenges you may have to undertake.
  • Gold can be collected along the way. You can save it or spend it. - 3 Gold for an item card, 5 Gold to level up, or to pay for death as said above.
  • Items - If you gain an item then use it how it says to. However, use it wisely, you may only use it once per area in the realm, for which there are four.
  • Dice - For attacks and some challenges, a die needs to be rolled. This is something I, as Dungeon Master, will be doing for you all.

HAHAHA! You’re so adorable. Yeah, commenting here is all gravy. No worries. (wink)
As for character picking, I posted them for you all to read and think about picking, but not really pick yet. As I don’t know who or how many will join, so I’m not even sure if we’ll have one group or a second group on another thread.
As for FCs, I was thinking none since this is just a forum game. Though the game does have pictures of the characters that I can share if you guys really want.
