From the introduction:
Hearken to you TWO to FIVE COMPANIONS that enjoy awful puns, a number of six-sided die, some scraps of paper and a few pencils. You’ll want a rough-hewn table cut from a single length of ironwood, set before a roaring fire in a boisterous mead-hall, with mugs of ale and meat off the spit close at hand. Or, someone’s basement.
Nominate one among you to be the SWINESCHAL: it is their responsibility to present a tale of high adventure.
The others take on the role of HOGBEARERS: proud and upright defenders of hogkind.
