    About the adventure

    The Gauntlet: A continual series of one shot dungeon runs. ┏ ━━┅━━━┅━━ ┓ The Dungeons of Malgamora have started to repopulate again. It seems each time this year they begin to fester with monsters. No matter how many adventuring parties go down there and start to clear it, the monsters just return as if nothing happened. Thats where you come in. You being part of the elite task force know as Exterminatiors are one such individual who makes daily ventures into the dungeons to clear them out. This is a continuem type of one shot meaning you will carry progress over from one shot to another and they vary in types. Here are the base mecahnics: You start by making a level one character, this character will join a party of up to 5 others and at the completion of each session your group will earn a level up. This character will follow you through each oneshot as they increase in difficulty. • Random loot drops. At the end of each session you will have a chance to earn up to 4 lootboxs in which you will roll to get items that will further enhance your character. • A scrap/crafting system to allow you to scrap the loot you dont want to craft loot you do want. • If you enjoy a fun loot box system and combat in 5e then this is the oneshot for you! ┗ ━━┅━━━┅━━ ┛
