Dark & Dangerous


This is a set of homerules to change your experience with 5e
to a more dark, gritty and difficult
sword & sorcery game.

Start as level 0 peasant,
ready for a life of adventure in a world where
arcane magic is dark and dangerous,
divine magic comes at a price,
magic weapons are almost non-existent,
rusty swords and bent spears are your usual tools of war,
trusty shields can really save your life,
and most importantly,
death awaits you at every corner.

I really like this package, I was just wondering what Exp you tend to use for Lvl 0-1 progression?

I would advise reaching level 1 at the end of a short adventure, not after a set amount of XP.
However if I had to tell you a number, around 100 xp seems fine.

Note also that you could create more than one 0 level characters for each player and have them all face the adventure. Those who survive have what it takes to be adventurers...

That seems reasonable, and along the lines of what I had thought.

I like the concept as I feel it gives players a chance to find which class more fits the character rather than going with their first instinct...

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
