Welcome to the final execution of the mercenary scum and adventurers that claimed to fight for the King of Flanaess. The righteous, the victorious…
Huh. As if! They were barely able to keep themselves alive, let alone be victorious. The last of the diehard adventurers is all worn out, and tired of trying to finish a job meant for an army that is all dead. Soon they’ll be dead as well, but they don’t know that.
The King requires a party of adventurers for one last act of defiance against the evil in Stone Mount. A centre of evil, it took 4 battalions of men – including knights, footmen, archers, priests and Magi – just to halt the wave of demons and monsters flowing from the black heart of the mount into the once rich, now war-torn, land. While everyone else is licking their wounds, you lot (the players) and two other mercenary parties that did not take part in the main battle, are being sent in to the heart of mountain and make sure it is clear… Or not.
This is an ongoing, decade spanning campaign that continues from where you left off the previous year. New players are also welcome. No previous Dungeons and Dragons knowledge is necessary, but could be helpful. Character creation required during the session, but pre-created characters may be used upon approval from the Dungeon Master. Please note, players playing for the 3rd year in a row might need a 2nd copy of their character sheet at one level higher, due to gaining enough experience to go up to the next level. Characters must but be created as follows:
Only the Players guide and any of “Complete Books” may be used for character creation. Only races allowed are from the Players and Greyhawk Realms books. Characters are to be created at 5th level experience.
Each character starts with either a +2 magical generic item (no artefacts, no special, no named items) OR two +1 magical generic items (no artefacts, no special, no named items). The items can be protection or weapons but not flame tongue or other named type.
“Die With Honour” uses Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 Edition or 5th Edition for 4 – 8 players set in the Greyhawk Realms.
Created and Presented by Salvatore Conti.
Die With Honour runs throughout the convention.

CONORGS NOTE: Salvatore Conti has been a past recipient of the “Excellence in Gaming” award from the Sydney Roleplaying Games Association (SRGA). Known for his commitment to the Sydney gaming community, Sal has run Die with Honour at ALL SRGA conventions since 2006. Our records show that Die with Honour has been running AT conventions since late 2000.
Die with Honour has been “a must-go-do” event we recommend to new players attending our conventions for the first time. It is a testimony to Sal’s unique Game Mastery and sense of humor that some players play Die with Honour every session of the convention. If you have never been to a convention before we highly recommend this game. At first, it may seem overwhelming; the rattle of dice, the loud laughter, rules debates, and the screams of pure joy. All we can say is, just settle down and join in the fun with your fellow players; spell casting, hacking and slashing through this vast and seemingly endless Dungeon, knowing you are following in the footsteps of over a thousand fellow gamers that have gone before you!
