Standing guard at the entrance to the kobit tunnels is a massive egre, a fearsome bird beast, muscles rippling and bulging beneath its beautiful white plumage. It turns its head and regards you with one jet black eye and then the other, snapping its sharp beak in the air as it tosses its head back and forth.
@ -13,3 +13,24 @@ The smallest of you can stand upright in the kobit tunnels. The largest of you h
Kobits are vaguely mammalian, slightly reptilian bipedal creatures. They are scaly and furry, and live in burrows and tunnels deep in the earth. They have huge eyes, and long fine whiskers at the end of their snout, all of which help them find their way around in the dark. They also have long, thick, course, drooping mustaches which are mostly decorative. The overall effect is that they look like tiny, monstrous, perpetually startled cowboy extras from the set of some old spaghetti western movie.

Suddenly three gophers come crashing through the trees behind you into the dig site. One is wearing a sash of many pockets. One is wearing cargo shorts of many pockets. And the last is wearing a vest of many pockets. All three are wearing hats that resemble waffles.
They march up to you.
"Out of the way, losers!" Sash cries, grabs the zipline trolley, and immediately dives off the side of the cliff down into the hole.
Vest introduces himself, "Retrieval Team 70 here! We are here to retrieve the Ginnarak Crystal that is reported to be in this location. After we collect all five, then it will be *us* who get to hang out in the Benefactor's hot tub! Not you!"
Sash has reached the bottom of the deep hole, and Shorts has started reeling in the pulley.
Vest leans in close and looks at you closely. "You must be the new Retrieval Team 43. Hmmph. Shame what happened to the old Team 43. Hope you know what you're doing!"
Shorts grabs the trolley and leaps down into the hole, sailing down the line toward Sash at the bottom.
"Welp!" Vest concludes. "No hard feelings, I hope! After we collect this crystal, we just need four more, and then we get to meet the Benefactor!"
He waddles off and starts reeling in the trolley.

<p>“Congratulations!” The slightly tipsy hobbit grins and salutes you with his martini. “On Retrieval Team 43s inaugural mission! Im so excited for you, Im sure youll do fantastic!”</p>
<p>You are all seated around a table in the corner at Lucys Basement. It is dimly lit and fairly noisy. The walls are covered in red velvet curtains, and the tablecloths have little gold tassels. A cloud of purple smoke from candles, cigars, and pipes hangs in the air. Waiters bustle between tables refilling drinks.</p>
<p>“So to recap, the Benefactor has tasked you with retrieving the five fabled Ginnarak Crystals. I, Blavin Blandfoot, will be your case manager. You will be paid handsomely for each crystal you retrieve. And if you retrieve all 5, youll get to meet the Benefactor at be their guest at their <em>glorious mansion!</em></p>
<p>The first crystal has been spotted near a Gnomish dig site in the Tammineaux Forest, just east of here.”</p>
<p>“I recommend getting started right away!” He polishes off his drink and squints at his empty glass. “Well, maybe first thing in the morning. Waiter!”</p>
<ul>
<li>Who are you?</li>
<li>What role do you think you will fill on the team?</li>
<li>What do you plan to do with your cut of the money?</li>
</ul>
<h3 id="section">00002</h3>
<p>Blavin provides you with a multibeast for your excursion. “Courtesy of the Benefactor!” You pack it up with food and supplies, and trek into the Tammineaux Forest in search of the first Ginnarak Crystal.</p>
<p>The forest is lush, thick, and green. You have to hack your way through the vines and the brush. There are stinging insects, squawking birds, and dangerous forest creatures a plenty. It is hot and sticky.</p>
<p>How will you ever find your way through this wilderness to the dig site?</p>
<p>Shouldnt be too hard,” you remember Blavin saying back at Lucys, gesturing carelessly and sloshing a little bit of his fourth drink. “Theyre gnomes, after all! Just follow the sound of explosions and screaming.”</p>
<p>Sure enough, before long you hear a mechanical droning and some blasting up ahead, punctuated now and then by high pitched screams, and you guide the multibeast in that direction.</p>
<p>Suddenly you are ambushed by a troop of blahoblins! Awful looking things. Taut rubbery gray skin. Long flat noses stick out way far from their faces. And so do their protruding, lipless mouths full of sharp pointy teeth. You didnt hear them over the noise of the shrieking parrots and, in the distance, the shrieking gnomes.</p>
<p>“SHOE SHINE!!” the first one yells. It is wearing a gold ring on each finger (minus the three fingers it is missing), two in each ear, and one in its nose. It is dragging a vat of black polish nearly as tall as it is.</p>
<p>“SHOE SHINE!!” a second one agrees. It is wearing a nice waistcoat with large gaudy buttons, and a nice looking pocket watch on a gold chain. It is dragging a comfy looking chair stuffed with bits of fluff and leaves and fur.</p>
<p>A third one screams, “SHOE SHINE SHOE SHINE!” It has several gold teeth and carries a huge block of cheese secured to its back with long loops of hempen rope.</p>
<p>The fourth and final one is wearing what looks like freshly painted red shoes and is carrying a lit torch. “SHOE SHIIIIINE!” it screams. It is wearing a gold medallion on a gold necklace.</p>

<p>“Congratulations!” The slightly tipsy hobbit grins and salutes you with his martini. “On Retrieval Team 43s inaugural mission! Im so excited for you, Im sure youll do fantastic!”</p>
<p>You are all seated around a table in the corner at Lucys Basement. It is dimly lit and fairly noisy. The walls are covered in red velvet curtains, and the tablecloths have little gold tassels. A cloud of purple smoke from candles, cigars, and pipes hangs in the air. Waiters bustle between tables refilling drinks.</p>
<p>“So to recap, the Benefactor has tasked you with retrieving the five fabled Ginnarak Crystals. I, Blavin Blandfoot, will be your case manager. You will be paid handsomely for each crystal you retrieve. And if you retrieve all 5, youll get to meet the Benefactor at be their guest at their <em>glorious mansion!</em></p>
<p>“The first crystal has been spotted near a Gnomish dig site in the Tammineaux Forest, just east of here.”</p>
<p>“I recommend getting started right away!” He polishes off his drink and squints at his empty glass. “Well, maybe first thing in the morning. Waiter!”</p>
<ul>
<li>Who are you?</li>
<li>What role do you think you will fill on the team?</li>
<li>What do you plan to do with your cut of the money?</li>

<p>Blavin provides you with a multibeast for your excursion. “Courtesy of the Benefactor!” You pack it up with food and supplies, and trek into the Tammineaux Forest in search of the first Ginnarak Crystal.</p>
<p>The forest is lush, thick, and green. You have to hack your way through the vines and the brush. There are stinging insects, squawking birds, and dangerous forest creatures a plenty. It is hot and sticky.</p>
<p>How will you ever find your way through this wilderness to the dig site?</p>
<p>“Shouldnt be too hard,” you remember Blavin saying back at Lucys, gesturing carelessly and sloshing a little bit of his fourth drink. “Theyre gnomes, after all! Just follow the sound of explosions and screaming.”</p>
<p>Sure enough, before long you hear a mechanical droning and some blasting up ahead, punctuated now and then by high pitched screams, and you guide the multibeast in that direction.</p>
<p>Suddenly you are ambushed by a troop of blahoblins! Awful looking things. Taut rubbery gray skin. Long flat noses stick out way far from their faces. And so do their protruding, lipless mouths full of sharp pointy teeth. You didnt hear them over the noise of the shrieking parrots and, in the distance, the shrieking gnomes.</p>
<p>“SHOE SHINE!!” the first one yells. It is wearing a gold ring on each finger (minus the three fingers it is missing), two in each ear, and one in its nose. It is dragging a vat of black polish nearly as tall as it is.</p>
<p>“SHOE SHINE!!” a second one agrees. It is wearing a nice waistcoat with large gaudy buttons, and a nice looking pocket watch on a gold chain. It is dragging a comfy looking chair stuffed with bits of fluff and leaves and fur.</p>
<p>A third one screams, “SHOE SHINE SHOE SHINE!” It has several gold teeth and carries a huge block of cheese secured to its back with long loops of hempen rope.</p>
<p>The fourth and final one is wearing what looks like freshly painted red shoes and is carrying a lit torch. “SHOE SHIIIIINE!” it screams. It is wearing a gold medallion on a gold necklace.</p>

<p>To do something, say that you do it, and then it probably happens!</p>
<p>If there is a risk, or chance of failure, well roll dice to determine the outcome. Well use a variation of “Roll for Shoes” because its probably the most simple system there is. Everybody will start out pretty even skills wise. But you will eventually get really good at really specific things.</p>

<p>Standing guard at the entrance to the kobit tunnels is a massive egre, a fearsome bird beast, muscles rippling and bulging beneath its beautiful white plumage. It turns its head and regards you with one jet black eye and then the other, snapping its sharp beak in the air as it tosses its head back and forth.</p>
<p>It looks you up and down, and its gaze rests on your freshly polished shoes. It huffs and grunts, “Your shoes look clean. You can enter.” And it steps aside.</p>
<p>The smallest of you can stand upright in the kobit tunnels. The largest of you have to crawl.</p>
<p>Kobits are vaguely mammalian, slightly reptilian bipedal creatures. They are scaly and furry, and live in burrows and tunnels deep in the earth. They have huge eyes, and long fine whiskers at the end of their snout, all of which help them find their way around in the dark. They also have long, thick, course, drooping mustaches which are mostly decorative. The overall effect is that they look like tiny, monstrous, perpetually startled cowboy extras from the set of some old spaghetti western movie.</p>
<hr />
<p>Suddenly three gophers come crashing through the trees behind you into the dig site. One is wearing a sash of many pockets. One is wearing cargo shorts of many pockets. And the last is wearing a vest of many pockets. All three are wearing hats that resemble waffles.</p>
<p>They march up to you.</p>
<p>“Out of the way, losers!” Sash cries, grabs the zipline trolley, and immediately dives off the side of the cliff down into the hole.</p>
<p>Vest introduces himself, “Retrieval Team 70 here! We are here to retrieve the Ginnarak Crystal that is reported to be in this location. After we collect all five, then it will be <em>us</em> who get to hang out in the Benefactors hot tub! Not you!”</p>
<p>Sash has reached the bottom of the deep hole, and Shorts has started reeling in the pulley.</p>
<p>Vest leans in close and looks at you closely. “You must be the new Retrieval Team 43. Hmmph. Shame what happened to the old Team 43. Hope you know what youre doing!”</p>
<p>Shorts grabs the trolley and leaps down into the hole, sailing down the line toward Sash at the bottom.</p>
<p>“Welp!” Vest concludes. “No hard feelings, I hope! After we collect this crystal, we just need four more, and then we get to meet the Benefactor!”</p>
<p>He waddles off and starts reeling in the trolley.</p>
