Into the Odd


About the adventure

The heroes who hired you to support them in their delve into the mega-dungeon are all dead. Now it is only a ragtag group of hirelings, torchbearers and apprentices. The torches are going to run out soon and there are miles of demon-haunted tunnels between you and safety. We will use Into the Odd as a fast and evocative system to play a fun survival dungeon crawl.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Webcam and mic will be necessary. Players will need a d20, d12, d10, d8, d6 and d4. No rules mastery is AT ALL necessary and characters will be provided.

What I provide

I will bring an outline of the dungeon and an eagerness to see where we'll end up when your imaginations collide with the otherworldly shenanigans at hand. I do not have a pat ending in mind and I am not steering you towards some inevitable drama that I've invented. I am putting problems in front of your characters and taking glee in how your imaginations deal with them.

Gameplay details

Players can expect to get playing quickly in a fast paced game where playing to find out, outside the box thinking and creative problem solving rule the day.
