About the adventure

History The town of Virane was setup by the tower as it attracted many adventurers to the place. Eventually the adventurers slowed down in coming to the tower and the town shrank in size. Those that stayed now farm or work in the mines. Adventures still come every so often and even some of the children grow up to explore the tower. Setting Fantasy world with a magical tower that resets every time the players enter the tower. The constant change hinders adventurers from exploring it fully as no one has of yet reached the top floor. The only book allowed for creation is the Player's Handbook as these are the races that tend to live in the area. What to Expect This game is for those that want to focus more on combat than RP. It is also great for new players as it helps them get familiar with the game and start to learn the RP side of it. The big focus is the tower itself and there is no real area to explore other than the tower. This is not a milestone game and will focus on experience instead.

How to prepare

Make character ahead of time if you can. Use 4d6 and take away the lowest for stats (i.e. Rolled a 3 6 2 4 so remove 2 and add 3 6 4=13) nothing lower than 10 for a roll. Only need discord for communication.

Gameplay details

This is a good place for those wanting to learn to play. It has light RP elements with the bigger focus on old school dungeon crawling. This is also setup so that people can come and go in case they can't always make it. The Mechanics Each floor is randomly generated due to the strange magic of the tower. There are no exits either as the group has to find special crystals that are within the tower itself. If a player dies and is left behind they are permanently dead. If the group holds onto the body and uses a crystal the dead player is now knocked out with 1hp.
