    Heya all, let's have a wonderful game!

    Saddle brown for Adamas.

    Is anyone up for a bit of backstory synergy? I will read the charsheets tonight and make some suggestions, if that is not a problem.

    AtS, I just realized that I have substituted the instrument proficiency for a cartographer's tools proficiency. Is it a problem? I really like Adamas having maps as a hobby.

    I think I'll snag Purple while I still can.

    As to backstory synergy, I could see Rurik and Adamas getting along. Rurik has plenty of stories to tell about the "Lowlanders" and their history, and his knowledge of history means he knows a good deal of geography (a critical aspect of map-making!).

    Let's go with Fire Brick for Carmina

    For backstories, Carmina and Sarin likely met each other at some point, either through a job, a misunderstanding, or just generally being in the same circles.

    For the others, have they needed to acquire anything in the region near the city or had something go mysteriously missing?

    I think that would work very nicely. Plus, Rurik and Adamas both understand stone and mountains. I think it will form a nice mental image, the stout dwarf answering questions with the gigantic goliath!

    Perhaps they have been traveling together for some weeks, having met on the road?

    Yeah, I think the two Tiefling's would naturally have met before, and I like the idea of them having done a job together. Maybe they were looting a posh nobles mansion, where Sarin's ability to disguise self might have come in useful?


    I'm not sure whether she would have met the others, they all seem like rather more 'sophisticated' types, and less likely to be thieving in the criminal underworld. Unless, of course, someone else has good ideas?

    Probably best if we avoid the group splitting into two matched pairs (and Camilla) backstory wise, but I don't have any great plans for getting around it.


    Text colour can be my usual choice for characters.

    I don't know if traveling together already would fit. Has Adamas ever spent the night in Neverwinter? Rurik may have run into him at a tavern, overhearing him (potentially) annoying fellow caravan-travellers/guards with all his questions. Rurik steps in, answers the goliath's questions as best he can, and since then the two are good drinking buddies. They know each other fairly well, but not TOO well.

    So idea of how cooperation would have worked is Carmina would have a "jerk list", while Sarin would be 100% perfect for casing the place. If they needed help, an off-camera collection of underworld folks would come in, but otherwise the sticky finger part would be handled by Carmina. Even splits, everyone happy? The question would be personality clash/getting along. Carmina's outgoing in a big way, and there's any number of ways Sarin could react to that.

    With two very recent arrivals and the two tieflings having been in the city until just days ago, there may not much of a chance. Maybe Camilla has in the past been around the outskirts asking for information about something? Rurik could have been looking for a book and then some good, fine folks could have found a pre-owned copy for him for a reward?

    Sure, why not? Adamas would not be annoying, but he would be obviously a stranger making simple mistakes. Perhaps Rurik helped him out and learned that they are traveling in the same direction? they would then know each other for the duration of the trip.

    Yep, being able to pretend to be someone else is pretty much as good as it gets when it comes to casing a joint. As a plan of thievery, I think it works well.

    Regarding the question of personality clashes, I don't think it would be that serious, at least for now. Sarin's coldness and withdrawn personality are, at least in part, something of a front to hide any real emotions. She might pretend to be annoyed, but I suspect she'd actually enjoy meeting someone who seemed to be genuinely chirpy and excited (although she'd probably hide it behind a grumpy face).

    That'll work. Rurik could have been returning from purchasing a rare tome for his employer's collection and come across Adamas when he re-entered the city.

    Camilla would most likely not have met any of the others before, unless they are natives to Neverwinter and have spent a lot of time out in the wilderness or knows the local Moon Circle druids.


    also: GM, I spend 5 GP to buy a Herbalism Kit... I mean getting a chance to brew a healing potion would be cool as a way for the local druids to earn a living that can be spend in town when needed.
    And since it's a consumable item that is at most a common magical item, it'd cost, what 25 GP to make, thus making it at half the price? like with how scrolls work and such.

    Hey again,

    it could be that I have missed it, but where are we currently? In Neverwinter? And how far would it be to Oakhurst?

    Also, could Adamas buy a map of the area with this money? He will also make one of his own of the journey.

    Letís use these downtime rules from UA: https://media.wizards.com/2017/dnd/d...A_Downtime.pdf

    So, yep, you can craft a Potion of Healing using your Herbalism Kit for 25gp of materials, in 1 day. We will handwave it and say that you guys have enough downtime for 1 dayís downtime action today.

    You are currently in Neverwinter, and itís about 2 days foot travel to Oakhurst, or 1 day by horseback. And yeah, Adamas can find a merchant in Neverwinter with maps. One of Neverwinter and the surrounding area would run about 5gp for a basic map with a middling level of detail.

    Since such a skill isn't in 5e, I'll assume you mean an Intelligence check. (1d20+3)[5]

    EDIT; Not that it matters on a roll that low

    Yeah, whoops. Forgot about 5e's skill changes, been thinking Pathfinder recently... So, with that result, you think you've heard of Harlan before. You know he's a wizard, and he has some involvement with the College of Neverwinter, but that's as much as you know about him.

    Just fYI.
    Sounds good. The Driftwood Tavern is actually right by that city gate, so itíll be easy for Camilla to meet back up with the others come morning.

    Itís up to you guys to decide when youíre ready to move on, but I will mention that there will be more chances to roleplay during the trip to Oakhurst, so that could provide opportunties for introductions.
