Between bouts of monster-slaying and wrong-righting, the Heroes of Sandpoint must hone their skills, enchant their items, sell their booty (wait…), and perhaps invest in the communities they help.

These rules cover how adventurers can spend their non-adventuring days preparing for exploits to come. Using a new kind of currency called Capital, you will assist the locals, build new structures, recruit volunteers for projects, and much more.
