WHAT'S A FUNNEL?

In this alternative to the typical 1st-level starting adventure, players create a handful of player characters (PCs) at level-0. This means they're all common folk with no class abilities, strange powers, or divine protectors. Instead of focusing on the actions of a single PC, problems are solved creatively through a mob mentality.

In Zed & Two Noughts, each player will control 3–5 level-0 townsfolk that have been captured within an alien prison system. Their goal? Survival at any cost. However, escaping with their lives will require strength, courage, and collaboration.

I was reading through this again today and caught a flub (probably). You mention playing a "C flat key". While this technically refers to a key on the piano, nobody calls it that since it's the same thing as a B.

thanks for catching that! The only reason we chose to use C flat instead is for the pun. "Sea flat".

Can't get enough?
