I'm planning on running a one shot on Saturday October 8th, around 7 eastern of Grizzled Adventurers. We'll be using the Pub discord and die roller.

Grizzled Adventurers is based on Beyond the Wall and Through Sunken Lands - basic D&D with a few tweaks. In Grizzled, you start around level 4 or 5, but beaten down with mediocre stats.

If you're interested, just post here. There are 4 ways to create a character.

1.If you have the game, roll up a character. For simplicity, if it tells you to give stats to a neighbor, give them to yourself.
2. Use the latecomer sheet to make a character, which can be found in this drive folder.
3. Pick one of the pregens in the drive folder. I can make more, if needed.
4. Play a young upstart by creating a Through Sunken Lands character using any of its playbooks. You'll be a couple levels lower but the sum of your stats will be ~10 pts higher.

If it goes well, I hope to run more one shots about once a month. I'm eyeing Dragonbane (when the full pdf drops), Troika, Branconia, and Tiny Dungeons. Playing in one doesn't commit you to any of the others.

Pub one-shots are the way of the future and better than ice-cream! Best of luck with this Stan.

Here's the setup.

You all get the gang back together one last time to save on of your own. Gaxy the battle wizard has disappeared.

Gaxy has had an up and down life, having grown up on the mean streets of Avalon until adopted by the wizard Lord Darcy. He put his learning to practical use, plundering and adventuring with your lot. A brilliant wizard with an adopted title would seem to have it all but his smart mouth earned him many enemies. When he was captured by the Cat Cult, he enemies made a move and took over all his lands. Embittered and impoverished upon his escape, his pipeweed addiction pushed him further from the rest of the gang.

Now with the kingdom in a serious drought, you heard a rumor that Gaxy was looking for the the Storm Sorcerer's crypt, presumedly to retrieve the Storm Tome. After months, there has been no word so you all have decided to put aside old petty arguments to rescue a brother in arms. You have tracked Gaxy's steps to the opening of the Storm Sorcerer's crypt and are ready to venture in.

Only one definite yes. Is the time bad? If I don't hear from more, I'll start inviting outsiders.

For what it's worth, scheduling in hard, hard, hard. I think of the Pub one-shots I tried to arrange, my success rate in terms of recruiting enough players to make it viable, was 60% at best. And even then I did recruit externally. But stay confident, keep the faith, because while it may not always work, when it does it can be very rewarding.
