The life of an adventurer is a fine thing indeed. Killing monsters and taking their stuff is not only lucrative, but glamorous! Who wouldn't want to be part of the band of heroes that conquered the horrors of Robinloft or the dreaded Temple of Existential Evil, and who came home bearing those places' glorious treasure? Who wouldn't aspire to one day take his or her place among the mighty HackMasters?
Well, most people wouldn't. Lots of people dream, sure, but even the most uneducated peasant has a pretty good idea just how high the adventurer mortality rate is. Most people really aren't willing to take that kind of risk for wealth and glory.
You're not most people. You'll probably die, and it probably won't be pretty. But for some reason, you've decided it's the life for you.
So grab your ten-foot pole, unsheathe your longsword, and kick down that door. It's time to hack.
That's right, HackMaster. Is anyone out there interested in a bloody romp through Garweeze Wurld?
I'm willing to streamline character creation a bit, so you needn't waste lots of time rolling for socio-economic class, and so you can bring a new character into play quickly when your old one comes to a terrible end. The tone of the game and setting is somewhat lighthearted, but although I won't make things hopeless, no punches will be pulled. Graphic deaths are probable (and may result in Extreme placement). Eroticism is optional.
