One of the most common used archetypes in storytelling is the hero of meager beginnings transcending and becoming a hero. It appeals to so many because in a way we think that it could have as easily been them in the story.
The problem is, that does not translate well into roleplaying games.
In this episode we discuss some examples of the unlikely hero and talk about how to try to make it work in your game.
