Beer, Pizza, and Death
Beer, Pizza, and Death is a game about the desperate and greedy daring great peril for gold and glory. In support of this theme the following rules changes apply to leveling:
- Levels are gained by finding treasure in the Crypt of Chaos. See the chart below for details.
- Levels are gained based on your character’s wealth upon returning to the surface world. Party gold or treasures shared by all party members count towards no one’s leveling. Note that shares of the loot need not be equally distributed: the party can choose to award the gold unevenly in order to level a particular character more quickly.
- Gaining the benefit of a level requires exiting the dungeon. No more than one level can be gained per visit to town, and gold beyond the amount needed to level is not rolled forward to the next level.
- Gold won during adventure but spent or lost in the dungeon do not count toward leveling. You must carry the treasures back to town to reap its rewards.
