Solução – Forest of Doom

The Forest of Doom

This is not the shortest or easiest path through the book. Rather than minimizing risk, this solution tries to incorporate as many of the interesting or exciting parts as possible, while avoiding sections that are blatantly harmful or provide no useful information. The reasoning behind this is quite simple, just think of the book as an action movie: it’s much more gratifying to face horribly difficult situations and barely make it through, than to walk through the whole adventure without a scratch. For this reason, your character may need to have high stats or lucky rolls to succeed; the path given assumes dice rolls are always successful.
