FAQ

How do I sign up? Can I do it now?

You can sign up the day of by arriving at The Wyvern's Tale and donating $5 to get on the list. As soon as a spot is open, you can join the table.

How do I donate?

You can donate by visiting our Extra Life page here! Be sure to specify the reason:

  • Signing up
  • For the Kids: A roll on the Boon Table
  • For the Shrine: A roll on the Bane Table
  • Your choice of an item from the Boon or Bane Table. (Requires a specific amount and the item's tier must be unlocked—be sure to check the peril level!)
  • Raise dead (to revive a fallen character—tell us who you're reviving,)


What's a Boon Roll (or Bane Roll)?

A Boon Roll is a roll made on the Boon Table, which means something good happens to aid the players. A Bane Roll is made on the Bane Table, which means something bad happens to the hinder the players. Boons are obviously nicer, but Banes are usually much more fun! The items available on the Boon and Bane Tables are based on the current Peril Level. The amount of dice we roll is higher or the items you can choose increases at higher a higher Peril Level.

What's the Peril Level?

The Peril Level is a measure of how dire things are for the players, and it is based on how many players are in queue to join the game, like so:

Players in QueuePeril Level
0-11 Troubling
22. Formidable
33. Dangerous
44. Perilous
5+5. Lethal

So how does that affect Boons and Banes again?

Basically, the higher the Peril Level, the more Banes you can get and the fewer Boons you can get, and vice versa, like so:
Peril LevelBane Table Tiers AvailableBoon Table Tiers Available
1II, II, III, IV, V
2I, III, II, III, IV
3I, II, IIII, II, III
4I, II, III, IVI, II
5I, II, III, IV, VI

For example, if the current Peril Level is 4, then we will roll 4d10 on a Bane Roll and 2d10 on a Boon Roll, and nobody can choose a Bane result in Tier V or a Boon Result in Tiers III, IV, or V.


24 Hours?! I can't game that long!

Don't worry—you don't have to. The viewers may be pretty cruel with donating for Bane rolls, and even if you do manage to survive, you're welcome to leave whenever you must. The next person will simply take your place. But if you're able to set a record, we'll be very impressed indeed!


Can I donate with cash?

We can take cash on-site during the marathon.


What happens when I die?

This is covered pretty thoroughly under the rules, but basically you're going to have donate some more to keep playing, one way or another.
