We all know the scene:
You're all in a tavern, eating and drinking, when a mysterious stranger approaches you with a "situation" that could use the assistance of experienced adventurers such as yourselves. He leans in and tells you a story of betrayal and death...We also all know the above is well overplayed to the point it's a joke. Doesn't stop us from using it tho' ;)
So, how and where do you like to kick off your adventures?
