About the adventure

This is a free Pathfinder 2nd Edition Character Generation workshop, intended to get you ready to play So Below, found here: https://startplaying.games/adventure/clcpkt1z4000208jrbuox1on0 The world was supposed to end in the final battle...but it didn't. Now, the world is dying: fields weren't farmed, forges were left cold, even the Gods derelicted their duty. It's up to heroes like YOU to forge a new path through exploration and struggle! So Below is a West Marches-style campaign, played by a large group of people who are all exploring the world of Glüm together. Parties set out from the village of Sigur into the wilderness of Gol-Kasha, uncovering sinister plots, terrible monsters, glittering treasures, and mysteries from beyond time, all in the hopes of building a new home on the edges of civilisation. Do you have what it takes to drag the freefolk back from the brink of annihilation? Join the adventure TODAY!

Gameplay details

So Below is a game about exploring an unknown landscape, full of monsters and threats from weather and the like. It is a dangerous world, and the players should expect to see their Characters come to harm if they aren't careful. But the PLAYERS should never come to harm. Each Session uses a standard set of Lines & Veils which are sent to players beforehand, with additions/alterations that can be added on request (no questions asked). These changes will be addressed at the beginning of the Session. During each Session, players can message the group, or the GM privately with an "X" meaning that play takes a pause, and we reconfigure any details that are uncomfortable. There is also the option of messaging the GM privately after each Session to debrief, if required. The GM will ask if anyone wants to talk things through after XP is given out. Stars & Wishes are very much encouraged on the So Below Discord, which will be linked to at the end of each Session.
