  • You came to a bridge and you need to get to the other side. But as you got nearer, there is a troll coming from under the bridge. You look closer and you see – it’s a female troll! And kinda ugly too… Troll demands her fee for crossing the bridge, but you have no money. “Maybe we can come to some other arrangement?” – asks troll winking at you in a rather dirty way. What would you do?

  • An infamous lich visits the PCs unannounced and says he’s very sorry and wants to make up for his evil deeds, and promises them incredible magic if you help him. What do you do?
