A Chunk of Fantasy 1.01 – The Shocking Door [Fantasy – Trap]

Today is the start of the new(ish) Chunk series, what used to be called Campaign Chunks and RIGS are now combined into one and their options expanded. Will be covering different genres on each Wednesday and Thursday, with Wednesday being Fantasy/Medieval and Thursday being SciFi/Modern.

Each tag will have their own modified format but will typical follow the same base outline structure with intro/flavour text, rough mechanical details about the subject matter and text explaining or going over the subject.
