Starting Adventures

Beginning adventurers have a hard time to find the right employment... let us try and help them!


Beginning adventurers have a hard time to find the right employment... let us try and help them!

This is to be a Codex of adventures suitable for beginning and low-level adventurers, whether they are in groups or loners.

Please, remember how it was hard in those years of youth, when nobody knew your name, and few would trust your abilities (or your integrity). These are the years when legends are made... and some are forgotten completely, become lost or die. These are often the years, that turn ordinary people into heroes or villains. Consider this... and have fun.

Character Hooks - a fine scroll with small and big ideas for starting adventurers.

Also see Adventurer Guilds.

A good concept. Categorizing plots like this is a great way for GMs to quickly find what they are searching for. King submissions like these should be in sticky format.

Goto Author

I agree with what Ag said...

Goto Author

Let's all agree and get on with it. Yay!

Anyhows, I think these can be used beyond beginning adventures as well.

Lets say that we have been slightly evil GMs and stripped the PCs of their wealth and weapons etc. One of these plots would prove a nice way of 'beginning all over'.

A mighty BUMP!

Anyone knows of good plots that would fit into this Codex?

Goto Author
