Gameplay details

āœØ The aim of this one-shot is to have a fun collaborative storytelling journey together and to have a positive experience interacting with others. To this end, players are expected to be compassionate, supportive, and respectful of others. šŸ§™šŸ»ā€ā™€ļø Some assumptions about the genre: ā–¶ Characters are on the edge of the known world, seeking fortune and fame in dangerous lands. They are not heroes of legend. ā–¶ Magic is real but not readily available and very dangerous. ā–¶ Technology is limited to the equivalent of the Iron Age.
