Example text

This provides the citizens with as much of a spectacle as it does the visitors, and quite a few Houses dine on exotic fare, such as rocksnake steak, or tunnel worm stew, as a result of a hungry monster’s attack coupled with the presence of alert House servants or guards.

Each group has 8-12 male fighters of 2nd level, armed with +1 long daggers and short swords, and long, black wooden staves with one end equipped with a metal ball, that can do 1d6 + 1 damage, and the other fitted with a snag-hook, for catching fleeing thieves.
