    You were just minding your own business when they fell upon or eight of them. The crack to your skull didn't do lasting damage, just enough to find you alone in a dank, dark cell. The sounds of people milling about outside your cage. The shrill voice of a showman, announcing a "special treat" for tonight's honored guests -- that treat being you, the new "monsters" for his prisoners to fight. That's when you realize there's a weapon in your cell, and the doors to the arena are beginning to open...


    For this scenario, you will play as a monstrous humanoid species from the following sources only:

    Player's Handbook
    Dungeon Master's Guide
    Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes
    Sword Coast Adventures
    Volo's Guide to Monsters
    Xanathar's Guide to Everything
    Unearthed Arcana

    As mentioned above, you will start with nothing except one mundane weapon, and one piece of armor.

    You may PM your character build info or pick from one of the following pregens:

    Cheat'ara, a female Tabaxi rogue (Scout archetype)
    Hork, a male Half-orc fighter (Champion archetype)
    Kribbel, a whatever floats-your-boat Kenku ranger (Gloom Stalker archetype)
    Minas Terroth, a male Minotaur barbarian (Path of the Ancestral Guardian)
    and Naked Joe, a male strongheart Halfling barbarian (Path of the Berserker), who is so hairy and ugly he got mistaken for a goblin by accident

    If you'd like to give it a run, or have any other questions, send a PM.

    See you in the Court,
