Adventures of Team TPK
In the Forgotten Realms, a reasonably quiet village called Wayfork is nestled between Dimwood and the Trollbark Forest on the Sword Coast. Here a group of fledgling adventurers set out on their first adventure – to find out why the Goblins of Dimwood had started raiding farms near the village once again. As the party set out to the affected area, they discussed nervously their chances of success.
“Probably be a TPK,” said Guinne, the halfling in a cheery voice. She checked her thieves toolkit and slid it away into her backpack.
“What’s a TPK?” asked Eric, young priest of Chauntea, giving his mace a few experimental swings.
“Total Party Kill,” replied Guinne, brightly, enjoying the look on the others’ faces.
“Well, that should be our name then,” grinned Igo the elven ranger and scout for the Wayfork militia.
“Team TPK!” laughed Fizbo the wizard and children’s entertainer, using an audible illusion to make his voice sound grand.
The others – a dragonborn cleric of Lathander named Dasira Brassclaw, Goldi the elf wizard, Tai Ni Dong the monk and crossbow craftsman, and the leader of the group Bonnie Basher the dwarf fighter and second in command of the Wayfork militia – did not laugh.
“Quiet,” urged Bonnie. “We’re getting close, Igo go on ahead and scout. Let’s hope we don’t live up to our new name.”
