Weekly Dungeons Discord server

Hi all, just wanted to post here that there is a fairly new Discord server devoted to hosting weekly Crawl challenges. There are server ranks to rise through and there is even a $ prize (usually $10USD but this week is $30USD!). So far the format has been based on a species/background combo that's s...

I think these changes sound pretty cool, here are my two cents: Yred remains the God of Undead Supremacy. In fact, in following Yred, players ultimately choose undeath over life.
