You wake up in a prison cell. Who are you? Why are you there? Learning the answers may be all that stands between you and a grizzly end. This is a game where you discover your stats during play. Characters will be randomized and you will start with a blank sheet. Only the DM knows all of your stats to start. What you can do and who you are will be revealed through the course of game play. How will you escape prison when you aren't sure if you should try a fireball or a sneak attack? Can your memories be recovered? Let's find out together.

I do want to specifically invite women and Nonbinary gamers to this game. (Though all are welcome!) To make this a more inclusive space there are a few rules I adhere to as a GM

1. A consent tool is in use and available to players at all times. I personally use x cards. These allow players to mark a subject as off limits or stop a theme in its tracks, no questions asked.

2. I provide player cards to identify the pronouns of players and characters if they're not the same.

3. I ask that everyone at the table do their best to use the correct pronouns for both players and characters. Mistakes happen and to keep the gameplay flowing and avoid focusing on an awkward situation as a rule I remind players to correct yourself and keep going. Profusely apologizing makes the interaction about you not the person misgendered.
