The Nightmare Before Pancake Week

A Chuubo's Halloween Special starring in alphabetical order:

Fairy Tale XP Actions

  • (Suffer) Adversity: you experience something awful. So awful!
  • Never Say Die: you’re overwhelmed and outmatched. This is a doomed and impossible battle—but you’ll still fight to your last drop of strength!

Links and Notes

  • This game uses a 3/5 XP ratio rather than the 4/5 assumed in the playbooks. Therefore, all XP costs for quests are reduced 25%, but Major Quest Goals give +3 XP rather than +4.
