From the introduction:
TOOT! TOOT! The whistle means that your daily 18 hour shift at the Eel Pickling Works is finally over. But today is different! No more sleeping for 4 hours and reporting back to work, no more mandatory lunches of eel grease sandwiches, no more bosses and whips.
You and your fellow workers have been saving your 3 copper pieces a day wages for years, waiting for this day. As of today, you are no longer eel picklers; you are adventurers!
Unbeknownst to your fellow factory workers, you have been dreaming of the day you could leave the eels behind and go out on adventures. You have all been spending your free time training in your chosen professions and most of you have reached impressive levels of mastery. Now all you need is the proper equipment and a mission!
As you walk away from the Pickling Works for the last time, the overpowering odor of vinegar stinging your eyes, you wonder what lies in store for your group. Will you be called upon to rescue a princess? Slay a dragon? Explore a treasure filled dungeon? You turn to grin at the rest of your newly formed group and give them a “thumbs up.” The adventure has begun!
