Quest for Beer

These characters and the world presented here were made up for a couple nights of IRC gaming where we were figuring out how to roleplay over IRC. The participants were each handed information on a character, a description of the world and details on how to make a map of the realms. Some of the maps the players came up with given the description were quite interesting... Anyhow, it was great fun, though also very chaotic, but it later allowed us to have some excellent IRC gaming over the following summer.
    Within, you will find all of the player handouts from this campaign, as well as information about the player-characters. Unfortunately, as we were still learning the IRC software that was used for this game, no transcript of it exists.
