About the adventure
This will be an introductory adventure for a game system unknown by most. Be ready to delve into the Caves of Evil to recover lost treasure, and maybe escape with your lives! This system was originally Made in Italy by the indie producer Serpentarium, and has been translated in English only in 2019. It's a very simple and easy system to learn, and it's made for low-power fantasy adventures. The characters in this game die very easily, so it's best to learn to strategise quickly. Because of the simplicity of the system, this game is also good for introducing children and newbies to the wonders of tabletop roleplaying games. I have used it for a group of people that were never interested in these things, and now they love it. It's incredibly accessible to anyone, and if you'd like to see for yourself it's available as a PDF on drivethroughrpg (just only buy the rulebook and not the other 2 books, since they contain spoilers)
How to prepare
You need at the very least a Discord Account, as that is what we'll be using to talk. Also hardware that can let you talk to us, so a smartphone or a PC with a mic. I'd also strongly advise having Wi-Fi connection or an unlimited data plan, as these games can potentially consume quite the bandwith. With this, you're set to play, everything else helps but it's not strictly required Ideally you'd want: >A Discord Account >A Roll20 Account >A PC (or Mac, or Laptop) that can run both >Headphones >A Webcam (absolutely not required to use it if you don't feel like showing your face) >A Microphone (many headphones and webcams come with one) >Stable Internet Connection with unlimited data (WiFi or some nice mobile plan)
What I provide
I'll give everyone a pre-made character sheet, as well as pictures of the Griffin Barony map. I have also made a battlemap for the Caves of Evil that we'll use on roll20
The gameplay in this game is more tactical than your usual RPG. This is because health and supplies are very limited, and the enemies hit hard. The adventurers aren't heroes, they're just average people in dangerous situations. This means every adventure requires good preparation, and every fight can be lethal. Don't get too attached to your characters.
