From the Torchbearer roleplaying game, which this is inspired by. So in this roleplay, we're taking on the roles of adventurers, though not really in the heroic sense of the word. Adventuring isn't exactly your dream job, and you're mostly doing it because you're desperate. Maybe your family had too many kids and left you to fend to yourself, maybe they're dead, maybe it's something else. The point is, you're not the most well-off fellow. You don't want to be the slave of some nobleman, and the churches might've given you a holy symbol and some bread before telling you to go out and preach or something. You scrounged together what little money you could and bought some gear: rations, weapons, armor, tools, supplies. Here you are at the town gates after meeting in the local inn, ready to head out. For now, let's start off with the basic fantasy races (humans, elves, dwarves, halflings, etc. Stuff you'd find in a Tolkien novel or a D&D Rulebook.)), though there may be opportunities for other races later. Remember that you're by no means rich, so you'll have some pretty crappy starting equipment, even a warrior will probably have leather armor at best. Anyways, jump in and Have fun!
