[intro] Allright, I’ve finally been able to restart roleplaying. Currently running DND5e with a group, but it looks like theres more interested people where I’m at and I’m looking to introduce Open Legend when it fits. So I’ve been reading a lot of MCDMs work lately, their running the game series on youtube is really good and easily transfers to non-DND games. [end intro]
However in Arcadia 9 theres an adventure called “Filthy peasants!” which is a short adventure for lvl 0 characters. All players play between two and four characters and most of the characters are expected to die during the adventure. So players start with rolling ability scores and choosing two options or so per character and then the adventure begins. In the article in Arcadia it mentioned this sort of character creation exists in other games also (dungeon crawl classics is mentioned as the origin).
So I’m highly interested in having this sort of character creation in open legend. And that’s the point of this topic. I haven’t looked into it any more than searching this place for funnel and reading “Filthy peasants!”. I acknowledge it would be much better if I could point to a funnel adventure so we had a common reference, I’ll try to find one.
But as a start, does anyone know of the funnel type adventures or other ways of playing through character creation? And has anyone tried to something like this in open legend?
I’ll collect links to funnels, explanations and tools I find here that are gratis and freely available.
- First is a stackexchange answer describing the funnel better than me: terminology - What is a "funnel"? - Role-playing Games Stack Exchange
- Next is a short intro to character creation for a dnd funnel: Running a Fifth Edition Character Funnel // Take on Rules
- And here is a generator for starting characters based on dnd: HanClinto's RPG Character Funnel / Tumbler / NPC Generator ― Perchance
Seeing as I can rather easily set up a funnel type adventure or convert something from dnd (because I’m familiar with those rules). The question that remains is:
How to quickly create a handfull (3 to 5) of weak characters?
