 +This is an [[reference:meta:definitions#old-school_gaming|old-school]] [[reference:meta:definitions#sandbox|sandbox]] [[reference:meta:definitions#campaign|campaign]] based on equally old-school [[reference:meta:prospective_players_faq#rules_questions|rules]] and [[reference:meta:prospective_players_faq#game_style|sensibilities]] and [[reference:meta:prospective_players_faq#scheduling|structured to fit into the busy lives of adults]].

 +Beginner and veteran players alike are welcome!  New characters will be rolled before play begins or you may use a pre-generated character.

 +The premise is simple:  a fallen civilization ripe for plunder, with a greater backstory and mystery should you seek to find it.
 +
 +The goal?  Kill monsters, take their stuff and have fun.  Sound good?  Then grab some dice and pass the Cheetos!
