About the adventure

"The answer is always at the top. That is the only thing I can tell you. If you wish to have you answer, if you wish to find her, head to the top. Money. Glory. Absolute Power. If you seek abilities and answers which are like magic, head to the top. All of the universe's wisdom, glory, and happiness- It has been placed at the top of this Tower. This Tower, is such a place." -Headon, to you, as you were invited to climb the Tower. Whatever your reasons, the Tower has been opened for you to climb. Whatever you seek, it is promised to be at the top. All Regulars, however, start here: at the Floor of Tests. Here you learn what it means to climb the Tower, and the contracts and rules that come with. This is the cornerstone from which all your dreams can be built, one floor at a time. Remember, however: to fail on the Floor of Tests is to lose your ability to climb the Tower. Up there, it will be different. Here, however, to fail is permanent. I wish you luck below.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Microphone is preferred, but unless you're rolling physical dice and I need to be able to see them to verify, I see no need for a webcam. Having Discord and/or a Roll20 account will be necessary, and as these both have digital dice rolling measures included there is no need for you to bring your own set-but you can if you'd like. I'd suggest reading up on the Positions, if you're unfamiliar with the webcomic's structure, as classes are far from traditional.

What I provide

fair adjudication, unwavering enthusiasm, and endless patience

Gameplay details

The system itself is a mostly homebrewed creation by Team Workshop, with some basis in Pathfinder. It can be a bit crunchy, and there's a lot to read through and understand prior to playing, which is why I only have a Session 0 for this template. Even as a group of strangers climbing the Tower, the experience is bespoke to each group, with some challenges staying the same to make my own life a little easier. So, we'd get together for character creation, and then i'd assemble a test for you. Floor 2 is likely a 2-4 session experience, starting from your character's arrival at the base of the Tower and extending on to their ascension to the 3rd Floor. If you'd like to continue climbing with me as your GM, that can be arranged, perhaps at a later date. Alternatively, Team Workshop maintains a very robust Discord community full of GMs who made the system themselves and adjudicate games with passion and fairness, and you can always find a group of Regulars who are looking to climb to the next floor, with room for small challenges in between. A link to their Discord server will be included with sign up.

How will character creation work

Character creation is semi-complex, despite the system coming with a robust and adaptive character sheet, so I'd like to handle character creation together. If you look through the sent rules on your own before the session, however, and come with a constructed character to Session 0, that's also fine. We'll also go over basic rules during this session in hopes of helping you understand the system.
