Not Just a Face in a Crowd - Parties with a Connection
The party meets randomly in a tavern and is sucked into the adventure. This is probably the most cliché beginning to an adventure, but it’s not that way because of the tavern. I’ve spoken about why the tavern trope isn’t a bad thing, but what is most overdone about this start is that random folk are just thrust into adventure right from the beginning with absolutely no connection.
