    Character creation:
    ​Sources: An​y published WotC material is fine. Non-standard races might be hard to deal with, but I will see what comes up before making a decision. No monstrous races though, I can't see that working out.

    Races: The campaign is very human-centric, but halflings and half elves will be very easy to fit in. Dwarves and elves are much less common but east to work with. Dragonborn were the elite troops of King Ormund, but since his death have been scattered. Ajax has declared them outlaws, but many people still remember their unswerving loyalty to King Ormund. Half orcs are called war-bred and were Ajax' counter to King Ormund's dragonborn. Since King Ormund's death the warbred have been cut loose and left to roam the land. Few people have seen one though.

    27 Point buy.

    Feats and Multiclassing are ok.

    Starting at level 5. Max HP at level 1 then average or roll after that, players choice.

    Standard starting equipment plus 650GP and one uncommon magic item. No +1 shields though. I will also consider a rare item, if you can come up with a balancing drawback, similar to the Minor Detrimental Properties of the Artifact rules in the DMG (p 219). It doesnt have to be these but they are good examples.
    You can use your starting gold on the Xanathars buying magical items rules, allowing up to three weeks downtime to search, split as you like.
    You can sell any starting equipment for the PHB value with no exploits to get extra gold.
    All magical stuff is subject to DM's approval - especially if you end up with two great items from rolls in Xanathar's.

    I think it would be good to start this campaign with at least some of the PC's knowing each other. Also feel free to be from Bedgar. It consists of the town of Gravesford, the town of Tarreton and Bedegar Keep, plus supporting farms.

    Retainer Rules:

    Retainers are controlled by the player and act on the PC's initiative.

    Trusted Advisers and Lieutenants: Your retainers will obey your orders to the best of their ability. They are not suicidal though and repeatedly putting them in obvious mortal danger (more than normal adventuring does) they can leave you. "Go ahead, I'm right behind you." if fine. "Charge that ancient red dragon while we run away." is not. I will be using the DMG(p93) Loyalty rule, except the loyalty won't cap at your CHA score - they are loyal because of your reputation, not because of your ability to attract and lead men.
    Health Levels: Rather than tracking Hit Points retainers use Health Levels. HL equals their level. When they take damage, they make a CON save with a DC equal to the average damage of the attack. If they fail they lose 1 HL per dice of the attack. They regain 1 HL after a short rest and regain 1 HL per die of healing. They regain all HL after a long rest.
    Gear: Retainers have gear appropriate to their class unless their leader has given them something else.
    XP: Retainers gain one level for every two their leader does.
    Limited Stat Block:
    PRIMARY ABILITY: This ability gets +4 on ability checks, other ability checks are made at +2.
    SAVES: These saves are made at +6, other saves are made at +3.
    SKILLS: These skills are made at +5, other skills are made at +2.
    SIGNATURE ATTACK: This is their default attack action. Retainers get a move, action, bonus action and reaction as normal.
    SPECIAL ACTIONS: Limited use actions that the retainer can use. These recharge after a long rest.

    Bonus Skill and Feat: Persuasion, Crossbow Expert
    Background: Far Traveler
    Skills: Insight, Perception; Tools: shawm; Language: Orcish
    Feature: All Eyes on You: Your accent, mannerisms, figures of speech, and perhaps even your appearance all mark you as foreign. Curious glances are directed your way wherever you go, which can be a nuisance, but you also gain the friendly interest of scholars and others intrigued by far-off lands, to say nothing of everyday folk who are eager to hear stories of your homeland. You can parley this attention into access to people and places you might not otherwise have, for you and your traveling companions. Noble lords, scholars, and merchant princes, to name a few, might be interested in hearing about your distant homeland and people.
    Feats:
    Crossbow Expert: Ignore the loading property on crossbows. Being within 5 feet of an opponent does not give disadvantage when using a crossbow against them. After taking the Attack action with a one handed weapon, can fire a crossbow in the other hand as a bonus action.
    Sharpshooter: Attacking at long range doesn't impose disadvantage on your ranged weapon attack rolls. You ranged weapon attacks ignore half cover and three-quarters cover. Before you make an attack with a ranged weapon that you are proficient with, you can choose to take a -5 penalty to the attack roll. If the attack hits, you add +10 to the attack's damage.

You can use these boots to fly for up to 4 hours, all at once or in several shorter flights, each one using a minumum of 1 minute from the duration. If you are flying when the duration expires, you descend at a rate of 30 feet per round until you land.

    HISTORY
    U'Tempei !Nothen (oo TEM pay <tok> NO thin) comes from a jungle land near the equator. She suggests people who have trouble pronouncing her name call her Pei as it means beauty in her native tongue. (Or she thinks it does, it's been 22 years since she's spoken the language and she has forgotten bits and pieces of it.)

    She was cast out of her tribe (The M'gond!) because she refused to marry the chieftain as all girls did in their 13th summer. She has lived on her own, traveling as far from those lands as she could. The wonders of large cities attracted her and she learned many skills along the way. She has mercenaried in various petty squabbles in the region at various times. She learned the shawm as a child and has worked as part of a troupe of performers in the past.

    She has known several men in her lifetime and each time it ended when they found her flirting with someone else. She does not understand this society's aversion to sex and nudity.

    APPEARANCE
    U'Tempei is a lean woman with dark skin. Her hair is long and silver and she has blue, red, and orange tattoos on her neck, cheeks, arms, and legs. They are lacy in design and contain arcane symbols if looked at closely (Perception DC 20). She dresses in colorful clothing when relaxing. Her work clothing is functional, dark, and gives her freedom of movement.

    PERSONALITY
    Traits: Independence is desired even though it doesn't make me happy
    Traits: Can be motherly to people in her immediate group
    Ideal: Hopes to find a reason to settle down someday
    Bond: Protect those who cannot protect themselves
    Flaw: Believes in true love, will sink a job if true love will be harmed

    Arcata Dulat
    Human Noble Wizard 5

    Background Feature
    Position of Privilege
    Thanks to your noble birth, people are inclined to think the best of you. You are welcome in high society, and people assume you have the right to be wherever you are. The common folk make every effort to accommodate you and avoid your displeasure, and other people of high birth treat you as a member of the same social sphere. You can secure an audience with a local noble if you need to.

    Background
    Bost Dulat still likes to regale his son and daughter, on the infrequent times they return home, with the tale of 'Bost Banditbane' and the defeat of the Thousand at Hills-End. Local outlaws had been bolstered by deserters from armies returning from campaigns to the north, and under that tutelage had constructed a fortification in the woods to coordinate their raids from. Bost, a veteran himself then just looking for a quiet place to settle, had gotten involved and through courage, cunning tactics, and unflinching resolve, overcame the defenders of the fort at Hills-End. For that he received from the grateful Baron a grant of land...the very land he'd liberated. Much of it was wilderness, with a broad, shallow hill that had the ruins of the palisade wall. Ser Dulat and his men turned it back into a fort...then turned it into a home. The wooden stake walls were pulled up and replaced with masonry over time. A small keep was built within. The land around the hill cleared. Hill's End was close enough to Gravesford that it didn't attract a town of it's own...but far enough that it wasn't directly under the Baron's thumb. Ostensibly it was charged with minding the woods and keeping the Baron's flank safe from attack.

    Much later, the Wode would make that charge a very different kind of effort.

    Bost's son Tristan, his eldest, had a rebellious fire in him growing up, but eventually grew by turns to accept the burden and privilege of his father's legacy. He had a troubled relationship with his sister, younger than him by two years. She had the luxury of disdaining the courtly politics like he wished he could. Their father supported her bookish hobbies, demanding little duty from her. And of course, she had an infuriating way of knowing just enough about virtually everything to show him up at crucial moments.

    Even so, when she left to study magic, Tristan realized he miss her.

    In the big city, apprenticed to a mage, Arcata learned to temper her attitude quickly. Wizards were not to be trifled with, and far worse than they were the agents of Ajax, keeping a careful watch over the mages. Despite the limits imposed by that scrutiny, access to the libraries, to the spellbooks...it was a dream come true.

    That all came crashing down though when she heard tell of unrest in her homeland. The outer baronies were always struggling, but this hit close to home. Arcata couldn't just look the other way. She wasn't sure how bad the situation was, but surely having a mage of her accomplishments would only be a boon in whatever they faced. There would be time to resume training when this was resolved.

    And if it was nothing? If the keep and garrison were too strong to challenge? Well, it was nice to have a reason to visit, yes?

    Appearance & bio

    PHYSICAL APPEARANCE
    A muscular, off-white draconic humanoid, Saarthax is easily recognizable as a dragonborn. His reptilian expression is difficult to read, but his manner is kind and accepting to each except those who seek to harm the innocent, and his deep voice is usually softer than one expects.

    The Dragon Knight comfortably wears heavy armor and a shield with a silver holy symbol on it. When in battle, Saarthax favors the sword, but is ready to forgive an enemy if it seems genuine enough.

    BIO
    Saarthax hatched in the Barony of Bedegar, after his father Sothor fled the capital during the fall of King Ormund and took Saarthax' egg with him. Here the boy grew up and learned how to fight a losing battle against the forces of Ajax the Tyrant. Trained as a soldier by his father and his men, Saarthax looked up to Sothor as the experienced paladin inspired his men through kindness and example. Saarthax knew early on that he, too, wanted to swear his Oath and become a beacon of hope.

    Then the worst day of his life happened. Huge orc soldiers invaded the Barony and killed the Baron and his family. At least one Hawk Lord had joined the battle, a sadistic man called Jorn Whitefeather, and he managed to close in on Saarthax and one of the other soldiers, Bernold the battlepriest. Both were taking serious injuries as Jorn toyed with them, luring out Saarthax' father. Eventually, Sothor came to their rescue but was killed before their eyes by the superior fighter.

    Saarthax and Bernold escaped in the chaotic aftermath, the paladin being dragged away by Bernold to avoid rushing back to certain death.

    Orin aka "Nightshade"

    Race:Half-Orc (war-bred)

    Class: Rogue 5(Mastermind)

    Background: Criminal/Spy
    Contact: Frostbite

    Orin is an average height warbred with messy, ashy grey hair. His face is covered in a handful of scars, received from various childhood beatings, nasty fights, and unfortunate accidents. His garb is that of a simple traveler. His leather armor is nondescript, if dark, , and he keeps a beaten shortsword sheathed in a scuffed-up scabbard on his belt in easy draw range. His otherwise ratty green cloak lies comfortably over his broad shoulders, not drawing much suspicion unless someone glances at the enchanted thread concealed in the inner lining.

    A simple quiver of arrows, fletched from various avian creatures who were in the wrong place at the wrong time, is strapped to the rebel's back, with his rough-hewn shortbow.

    Backstory:
    Orin was born a war-bred, to parents who had fought the Dragon Phalanx in the war. Growing up, the young rogue watched the war-breed gradually be abandoned by Ajax. Added to the anger he already felt towards the Overlord over their race being created expressly to counter the Phalanx, Orin was practically cheering when the Iron Tower attacked, and needless to say disappointed at their failure.

    Orin loathed what Ajax was doing to the realm, and still resented him for the slavery he had born the war-bred into. He began to take action. It was nothing major at first; stealing provisions, sabotaging weapon carts, sniping one of Ajax's soldiers off a trade route here and there. Soon enough, though, someone took notice. Orin was just lucky that the resistance did before Ajax. He was approached by a black-scaled dragonborn, who Orin knows only as "Frostbite," and told about the resistance. Frostbite decided the war-bred could be trusted and taught him secret signals, codes and such. Orin took up the name "Nightshade" and set out as an agent of his new resistance allies.

    To this day, the only other member of the resistance Orin has met is Frostbite.

    (If anyone really has a problem with any of this, just let me know and I can adjust accordingly)
