View Full Version : Sandboxing the Dragon Coast [3.5 or 4e]

2008-12-16, 06:12 PM
ITT: I ask for the Playgrounds guidance in creating a sandbox game for the Dragon Coast of the Forgotten Realms.

Idea: Centering on Westgate and Sembia with some nautical adventures, but mostly tales of intrigue (from the multiple unsavory groups that call Westgate home).

What I need:
Names (preferably broken down by gender/race)
Advice on constructing NPCs for the area

Does anyone know:
how far a ship with sails would travel in a day with like... average wind?
where the Quivering Thumb arena is actually located?
anything awesome about the area that I should know? (I've read a history of Westgate that came from Candlekeep iirc and the WotC articles on Sembian business)

Also, if anyone bought the 4e FRCG... What happens to Westgate?

This is 4e, but Westgate is still there, and thriving. Night Masks are gone, replaced by the Fire Knives. Don't know alot about them.

Fire Knives were the assasins in Cormyr that got exiled to West Gate, but the idea that they drove out the Night Masks... wow.
