d20 Modern: Beginnings
In 1991, Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski returns home only to be roughed up by two thugs claiming to be collecting money that Lebowski’s wife owes a man named Donatello. After beating him and urinating on his rug, they realize they are looking for a different person with the same name, and they leave. At the instigation of his friend and bowling teammate Lawrance Kubic, The Dude decides to seek compensation for the rug from the other Jeffrey Lebowski. The next day, the titular “Big” Lebowski, a wheelchair-bound millionaire that lives on Connersville, refuses The Dude’s request. The Dude meets Bunny Lebowski, the Big Lebowski’s nymphomaniac trophy wife, while leaving the premises with a rug taken from the mansion. Dude, lives on an apartment on the Old Industry Area and works on the train station as a janitor. He likes bowling and keeps doing that almost every night on the Bowling alley on Kingsgate Shopping Centre. “The Dude” Lebowski, is a single, unemployed slacker living in Eerie, Indiana, who enjoys marijuana, white Russian girls, and bowling.
