FAQ

Help I’m lost as fuck

Can I edit the wiki?

Yes! Jesus Christ please do, when this game assumes that not everyone will be going to every session we need a common line of communication to ensure some continuity.

In character, what’s on this wiki is public information. It represents the table talk, rumours, notes and whatnot that you all share in the taverns and common rooms of Backwash between your expeditions. If there is anything you want to keep a secret for some reason… don’t put it on the wiki.

I want to go on an expedition

Schedule one! Get at least one other person and put a post on the Facebook group and we’ll arrange a time. Calls for expeditions must be public. I will be pretty cutthroat about scheduling, so if some people can’t make it then they’ll get left out but other players must at least be given a chance and be made aware that a session is happening. Let’s try not to make this too cliquey.

You need to have a good idea of where you’re going. You most certainly don’t need to know the exact location of a particular dungeon and travelling through the wilderness is half the battle, but I need to know what your objective for the session is in advance so I can make sure that everything is prepared. If you have no intel on dungeon locations you have three choices. One, scum for rumours in town – I have ensured that there is some information available in civilisation so you’re not completely lost. Two, try and piece together intel based on previous expeditions. Keep finding dwarven relics on the Hornhollow Plains? There’s probably a dwarven ruin around there somewhere. Find a map to a goblin stronghold in an old forgotten temple? Follow it! Three, go exploring the wilderness yourself. You might not necessarily find a dungeon, but the wilderness is a living place with its own adventures and dangers. Even if you don’t find any gold, knowing that there’s a good camping site on the moors or that there’s a convenient pass in the hills is important info. Make maps! Share them!
