Chat Thread (OOC)
Story Thread (IC)

Here's where to put your guests, prisoners, and staff of Revel's End.

(Prison Staff)
Prison Warden Marta Marthannis is a human mage of middle years with a calm, unflappable disposition. She wears a red robe with gold trim.
Councillor Voss Anderton is a middle-aged human from Neverwinter who has a precise, lawyerly way of speaking. He takes his role in the Absolution Council seriously and never misses a meeting or parole hearing.
Councillor Jil Torbo is a halfling from Baldur’s Gate who loathes her job. She has no sense of humor and a habit of sighing deeply when her patience is tested.
Councillor Kriv Norixius is a silver dragonborn from Daggerford. He has no compassion for criminals and is a stickler for every rule he can imagine.
Zhub is a spectator who guards the armory like a treasure horde.
(Newly Arrived)
Staylar is a half-elf healer, replacement for the prison's doctor who disappeared mysteriously.
Fogg and Drumm are mute firbolg twins, assistants to Staylar.
(Guards)
Ludz is a young man from Red Larch, honest and hard working.

(Crew of the Gray Seagull)
Captain Halehearty is an aging stout halfing who's spent most of his life at sea.
Mate Johan Barrie is a sly, capable man of unknown origin.
Ship's Cleric Iyatisi is an acolyte of Waukeen (merchant god) originally from Chult
Bossun Dorgar "Dogger" Gummor is a shield dwarf carpenter and bossun
And a dozen active crew

(More to come)

Doc Halfhand.
NG Goliath Druid 4

Doc has been coming here for ages, it seems, always helping when the weather turns rough and the food is short. All the prisoners grumble when they’re only given a berry to eat, but when doc’s around no one gets frostbite, and if they’re sick he usually has them on their feet the next day. Doc’s a quiet one, for sure, and he never explains how he lost those three fingers. Some say they were eaten by one of the mountain creatures. Others say they broke off in the cold before he learned how to heal that sort of thing. Some even say he served a spell here, but no one still alive remembers him as a prisoner, or they don’t admit it if they do. What motivates him, and why the Warden lets him into the cells, and where he goes when he's not here, no one here knows.

Possibly a Idiot.
Py'Cott, The Red Ghost
Half-Orc Criminal Fighter- Echo Knight Level 3
Icewind PCott.png


Prisoner 284.
Py'Cott, A.K.A. The Red Ghost, was born to a camp following ragpicker and an unknown soldier. He spent the majority of his life as a sellsword, traveling around Faerûn, following money into whatever battle would have him. Over time he learned a peculiar set of skills, allowing him to seemingly appear at two places at once and dart around the battlefield, earning him the knick-name "The Red Ghost". With time, the constant battles and being put at risk for someone else's wealth grated upon him. Looking for an easier path to wealth, Py'Cott turned his talents to robbery.

Py'Cott enjoyed success in the profession, eventually attracting the attention of Burton Cragsmere, an impoverished noble who was planning a robbery on the Cassalanter estate. It was a good plan, hitting them while they were distracted with a party, and the backing knowledge of an inside man. Then the plan went to hell. The planned distraction backfired, setting fire to the estate, and causing chaos amongst the guests.

Luckily for Py'Cott, he survived the fire. Unluckily for him, he escaped the estate only to find his way into the arms of the Watch who had just shown up to the scene.

The trial was quick, but surprisingly they chose to imprison Py'Cott instead of finishing him off. Perhaps it was his employer pulling some strings, or perhaps it was because the officials saw value in his skills and wanted to keep him around for later.

WeaponTo hitRangeDamage
Unarmed Strike+5Melee4 (B)
Manifest Echo - Attack (Special)
When you take the Attack action on your turn, any attack you make with that action can originate from your space or the echo’s space. You make this choice for each attack.
Savage Attacks
When you score a critical hit, roll one of the dice an additional time and add it to the extra damage
Great Weapon Fighting
You can reroll a 1 or 2 on damage dice with melee weapons wielded with two hands.

Maneuvers:
Superiority Die: 1d6, DC 13.
Menacing Attack

When you hit with a weapon attack, you can expend one superiority die to add the total to the damage roll and the target must make a WIS saving throw (DC 13). On failure, it is frightened of you until the end of your next turn.
Disarming Attack
When you hit with a weapon attack, you can expend one superiority die to add it to the damage and to disarm the target if it fails a STR saving throw (DC 13).

Bonus Actions:
Manifest Echo

You can use a bonus action to magically manifest an echo of yourself in an unoccupied space you can see within 15 feet of you. This echo is a magical, translucent, gray image of you that lasts until it is destroyed, until you dismiss it as a bonus action, until you manifest another echo, or until you’re incapacitated.

Your echo has AC 14+ your proficiency bonus, 1 hit point, and immunity to all conditions. If it has to make a saving throw, it uses your saving throw bonus for the roll. It is the same size as you, and it occupies its space. On your turn, you can mentally command the echo to move up to 30 feet in any direction (no action required). If your echo is ever more than 30 feet from you at the end of your turn, it is destroyed.

Manifest Echo - Teleport
As a bonus action, you can teleport, magically swapping places with your echo at a cost of 15 feet of your movement, regardless of the distance between the two of you.

Second Wind
Once per short rest, you can use a bonus action to regain 1d10 + 3 HP.

Reactions:
Opportunity Attack
Manifest Echo - Opportunity Attack

When a creature that you can see within 5 feet of your echo moves at least 5 feet away from it, you can use your reaction to make an opportunity attack against that creature as if you were in the echo’s space.

Other:
Action Surge (Special)

You can take one additional action on your turn. This can be used 1 times per short rest.

Relentless Endurance (Special)
When you are reduced to 0 HP but not killed, you can drop to 1 HP instead once per long rest.

Unleash Incarnation (Special)
You can heighten your echo’s fury. Whenever you take the Attack action, you can make one additional melee attack from the echo’s position.

You can use this feature 3 times. You regain all expended uses when you finish a long rest.

ValrinThann
LN V. Human Barbarian Berserker Sage 3

Valrin.jpg


Valrin was a scholar in Candlekeep. He was a bastard son of a scion of the Thann family in Waterdeep and sent to Candlekeep as a child for his education. According to some rumors, not all members of the Alagondar family perished during the eruption of Mount Hotenow. It was believed that a woman of the Alagondar lineage, who was pregnant at the moment the eruption took place, fled during the destruction of Neverwinter and survived long enough to give birth to her child. She later succumbed to madness because of the grief of having lost all her family, dying shortly thereafter. The child, now the last surviving member of the Alagondar bloodline, was adopted by the Waterdhavian house Thann and raised as one of their own. Valrin discovered he was one of these "lost Alagondars" when the Sons of Alagondar, a insurrectionist group in Neverwinter opposing the new rule of Lord Protector Neverember, found him. After an unsuccessful attempt to press his claim, Neverember locked him in Revel's End, hoping he would just...disappear. With the help of Councillor Voss Anderton, a Neverwinter appointee to the parole board, it is assured Valrin will never see the light of day again.

While in prison, Valrin has devoted his time to honing his body to survive, much as he had his mind at Candlekeep. He has been at Revel's End longer than anyone else in the harsh prison, long enough that few even know why he is there.

Background: Sage
Researcher: When you attempt to learn or recall a piece of lore, if you do not know that information, you often know where and from whom you can obtain it. Usually, this information comes from a library, scriptorium, university, or a sage or other learned person or creature. Your DM might rule that the knowledge you seek is secreted away in an almost inaccessible place, or that it simply cannot be found. Unearthing the deepest secrets of the multiverse can require an adventure or even a whole campaign.

Barbarian abilities:
  • Rage (bonus action; 3/LR): +2 melee damage
    • Advantage on STR checks and Saves
    • Resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage
    • Your rage ends early if you are knocked unconscious or if your turn ends and you haven’t attacked a hostile creature since your last turn or taken damage since then. You can also end your rage as a bonus action.
  • Reckless Attack: When you make your first attack on your turn, you can decide to attack recklessly, giving you advantage on melee weapon attack rolls using STR during this turn, but attack rolls against you have advantage until your next turn.
  • Danger Sense: You have advantage on DEX saving throws against effects that you can see while not blinded, deafened, or incapacitated.
  • Frenzy (bonus action): While raging, you can choose to frenzy. You can make a single melee weapon attack as a bonus action on each of your turns after this one. When your rage ends, you suffer one level of exhaustion.


Feats:
Tavern Brawler (Variant Human): Increase your STR or CON score by 1. You are proficient with improvised weapons. Your unarmed strike uses a d4 for damage. When you hit a creature with an unarmed strike or an improvised weapon on your turn, you can use a bonus action to attempt to grapple the target.

Grappler (GM bonus): You’ve developed the skills necessary to hold your own in close-quarters grappling. You gain the following benefits:
  • You have advantage on attack rolls against a creature you are grappling.
  • You can use your action to try to pin a creature grappled by you. To do so, make another grapple check. If you succeed, you and the creature are both restrained until the grapple ends.

Jathlin was born to the daughter of a prominent merchant in Waterdeep. His life would have been simple and easy if not for his father. He had the unfortunate fates to be the bastard of Gerath Zulpair, heir to House Zulpair. Having a bastard wouldn't do so the family patriach ruined my mothers family and got them banished from the city. When word got back that the child was plane touched which could only have come from Gerath the family sent assasins to take care of Jathlin. The Zulpair's couldn't have a challenger to their rightful heir.

Jathlin and his mother spent most of his childhood and running from port town to port town. Always trying to stay one step ahead of his father's hired assasins. Once he was old enough he hired onto a ship as a deck hand and left his mother. It was the only way to keep her safe. Jathlin has not seen her since. On the sea he found freedom and faith. Learning that his father and their family worshipped Umberlee he gravitated towards Valkur. He joined a privateer crew and worked his way up to Captain. Once their commission expired the crew decided to attack the Zulpair shipping intrests as a way to get back at his father for what they did to he and his mother.

He had been a thorn in the families side for years. He never intentinally killed any of the family but he stole their goods and sunk their ships. This continued until he was finally caught by the Waterdhavian Navy. He was tried and sentanced to the Revel's End for the remainder of his days.

Backstory: Soft-skins from boats took Razum from the great water (Lake Halruaa). Fresh from the egg, Razum thought bigger than kin. Soft-skins teach Razum to investigate. Soft-skins showed Razum to uncover secrets. Soft-skins showed Razum to extract secrets with potions that hurt soft-skins, and killed soft-skins. Razum pleased soft-skins. Soft-skins give Razum headband.

Razum understood his service. Razum left the place of many boats (Zalazuu). Razum works only for Razum, and for Truth. Razum travels far and wide, and now Razum helps the Lord's Alliance. Razum offers to assist with skills in a prison. Razum understands all, and takes notes. Razum uncovers what is needed.

Razum is happy. Razum is cold. Razum does not like the cold.

Razum was taken at a young age by the Halruaa Navy and trained to be a mundane (non-magic) investigator in the naval port city of Zalazuu. He was useful for his non-human, alien ways of looking at investigations, and for his lack of empathy when administering the various neuro-toxins that were used by the naval for more difficult cases (and, in some cases, as a more permanent solution). Because of his great skill and promise, he was gifted with a Headband of Intellect that had been made by the Magocracy of Halruaa; but instead of just making Razum a keener investigator, it made him question his service to a place that was often more preoccupied with politics than the truth. He quietly left and has been offering his services as a travelling inquisitor since.


Trait: I have my own ideas about what is and is not food, and I find the eating habits of those around me confusing.
Ideal:
Inquisitive. Everything is new, but I have a thirst to learn.
Bond: I hold no greater cause than my service to the truth.
Flaw: I am convinced of the superiority of lizardfolk over that of this foreign cultures and peoples.
LF Quirk: I still don't understand how metaphors work, but I use them at all opportunities.

Absorb Elements
1st-level abjuration
Casting Time: 1 reaction, which you take when you take acid, cold, fire, lightning, or thunder damage
Range: Self
Components: S
Duration: 1 round
The spell captures some of the incoming energy, lessening its effect on you and storing it for your next melee attack. You have resistance to the triggering damage type until the start of your next turn. Also, the first time you hit with a melee attack on your next turn, the target takes an extra 1d6 damage of the triggering type, and the spell ends.

Booming Blade
Evocation cantrip
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 5 feet
Components: V, M (a weapon)
Duration: 1 round
As part of the action used to cast this spell, you must make a melee attack with a weapon against one creature within the spell's range, otherwise the spell fails.
On a hit, the target suffers the attack's normal effects, and it becomes sheathed in booming energy until the start of your next turn. If the target willingly moves before then, it immediately takes 1d8 thunder damage, and the spell ends.
At Higher Levels. At 5th level, the melee attack deals an extra 1d8 thunder damage to the target, and the damage the target takes for moving increases to 2d8. Both damage rolls increase by 1d8 at 11th level and 17th level.

Friends
Enchantment cantrip
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Self
Components: S, M (a small amount of makeup applied to the face as this spell is cast)
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute
For the duration, you have advantage on all Charisma checks directed at one creature of your choice that isn’t hostile toward you. When the spell ends, the creature realizes that you used magic to influence its mood and becomes hostile toward you. A creature prone to violence might attack you. Another creature might seek retribution in other ways (at the DM’s discretion), depending on the nature of your interaction with it.

Hex
1st-level enchantment
Casting Time: 1 bonus action
Range: 90 feet
Components: V, S, M (the petrified eye of a newt)
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 hour
You place a curse on a creature that you can see within range. Until the spell ends, you deal an extra 1d6 necrotic damage to the target whenever you hit it with an attack. Also, choose one ability when you cast the spell. The target has disadvantage on ability checks made with the chosen ability.
If the target drops to 0 hit points before this spell ends, you can use a bonus action on a subsequent turn of yours to curse a new creature.
A Remove Curse cast on the target ends this spell early.

Mage Armor
1st-level abjuration
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Touch
Components: V, S, M (a piece of cured leather)
Duration: 8 hours
You touch a willing creature who isn’t wearing armor, and a protective magical force surrounds it until the spell ends. The target’s base AC becomes 13 + its Dexterity modifier. The spell ends if the target dons armor or if you dismiss the spell as an action.

Mage Hand
Conjuration cantrip
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 30 feet
Components: V, S
Duration: 1 minute
A spectral, floating hand appears at a point you choose within range. The hand lasts for the duration or until you dismiss it as an action. The hand vanishes if it is ever more than 30 feet away from you or if you cast this spell again.
You can use your action to control the hand. You can use the hand to manipulate an object, open an unlocked door or container, stow or retrieve an item from an open container, or pour the contents out of a vial. You can move the hand up to 30 feet each time you use it.
The hand can’t attack, activate magical items, or carry more than 10 pounds.

Minor Illusion
Illusion cantrip
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 30 feet
Components: S, M (a bit of fleece)
Duration: 1 minute
You create a sound or an image of an object within range that lasts for the duration. The illusion also ends if you dismiss it as an action or cast this spell again.
If you create a sound, its volume can range from a whisper to a scream. It can be your voice, someone else’s voice, a lion’s roar, a beating of drums, or any other sound you choose. The sound continues unabated throughout the duration, or you can make discrete sounds at different times before the spell ends.
If you create an image of an object—such as a chair, muddy footprints, or a small chest—it must be no larger than a 5-foot cube. The image can’t create sound, light, smell, or any other sensory effect. Physical interaction with the image reveals it to be an illusion, because things can pass through it.
If a creature uses its action to examine the sound or image, the creature can determine that it is an illusion with a successful Intelligence (Investigation) check against your spell save DC. If a creature discerns the illusion for what it is, the illusion becomes faint to the creature.

Shield
1st-level abjuration
Casting Time: 1 reaction, which you take when you are hit by an attack or targeted by the Magic Missile spell
Range: Self
Components: V, S
Duration: 1 round
An invisible barrier of magical force appears and protects you. Until the start of your next turn, you have a +5 bonus to AC, including against the triggering attack, and you take no damage from Magic Missile.
Traits:
Personality:
I take great pains to always look my best and follow the latest fashions.
Ideal: Family. Blood runs thicker than water.
Bond: I am guilty of a terrible crime, and I hope I can redeem myself for it.
Flaws: By my words and actions, I often bring shame to my family. I have a weakness for drinks and pleasant company.

Appearance and personality:
A charming but somewhat arrogant man, Burton carries himself like he’s a nobleman from Waterdeep - which he is. The youngest Cragsmere son loves his fashion almost as much as his ornate rapier and sharing a drink too many with interesting people...

Background:
As the third and youngest son of the Waterdhavian lord Cragsmere, Burton grew up without a worry and spent his life following his many whims. When his father passed away, however, his oldest brother Rhys Arvid privately told Burton that the family funds would no longer be available for his revelries unless business demanded it.

Frustrated, Burton spent his entire personal funds in one night, picking a fight with another family’s butler. The fencing duel was an easy win for one with his fine training, and the butlers master Lord Victoro Cassalanter was sufficiently impressed to offer Burton a job —under the guise of an agreement between friends, of course— to tutor his son Osvaldo in the art of fencing.

Despite his resentment towards Lord Cassalanter, Burton found himself genuinely fond of the boy. But when he discovered the location of what he believed to be a safe containing many valuables, the man who was so used to living without financial worries got very greedy.

Calling upon Py’Cott, a half-orc he had met in one of the taverns of less than pristine reputation, Burton set out to rob the Cassalanter estate.

It should have been easy. It was a good plan.

The Cassalanters would be having a party at their estate, uninvited Burton would distract the guards so he and Py’Cott could slip into the house and sneak out with enough money to secure a comfortable lifestyle for many years.

But Burton triggered a magical alarm in the arcane study —some whisper he discovered a great secret, but neither would-be robber has publicly admitted to such a thing— and in a panic, he accidentally dropped a necklace of fireballs and started a fire.

A fire that nearly killed Osvaldo.

Burton and Py’Cott fled, but were quickly caught by the Watch. Both were convicted to prison in Revel’s End for attempted robbery that caused death, the death of partygoers who were unlucky enough to get between them and the way out.

Burtons biggest regret is hurting the boy, even though he later heard Osvaldo was fine. Money can really buy the best healing.

From the DM, unedited (spoilers for Waterdeep: Dragon Heist!):
“As I mentioned, Victoro Cassalanter (in my game) has a sister, Avelina - a PC Wizard. Avelina is the children's 'favourite aunt'. The excuse that Momma and Poppa Cassalanter gave her for why their eldest Osvaldo was 'missing' was that he had traveled to Baldur's Gate to apprentice for some high mucky-muck (can't remember the details). Of course, if you're familiar with WDH, he's been turned into a Chain Devil and is chained in the attic. (In my game, the party killed him and set fire to the Villa - through some shrewd RP & charisma checks, they managed to convince Waterdhavian society that they were actually a volunteer fire brigade and the fire was already there (they just put it out)).

To make a long story shorter, let's say for this game that the Cassalanters (not including Avelina, obviously) were having one of their Cult-of-Asmodeus parties on the night that you chose to rob them, you found that out, but set off some kind of alarm. In the chaos, another (earlier) fire was caused, and Osvaldo was burned (either to death, or near-death). You got away, enough that they didn't kill you on the spot, what with all their party-goes turning out to be cultists, but were picked up later by the city watch. They were forced to make a deal with Asmodeus to save their son (turning him into a Chain-Devil, because Asmodeus sucks). Officially, your crime was robbery that caused death (not Osvaldo's - that was covered up, but the cultists you killed trying to escape.) Your sentence to Revel's End was a plea-deal you made when you realized that the Magistrate judging your case was at the Casselanter's "Party" and your other option was to be put to death. Telling people "but... they're Cultists!" was never an option.”

Pole arm master
  • When you take the Attack action and attack with only a glaive, halberd, quarterstaff, or spear, you can use a bonus action to make a melee attack with the opposite end of the weapon. This attack uses the same ability modifier as the primary attack. The weapon's damage die for this attack is a d4, and it deals bludgeoning damage.
  • While you are wielding a glaive, halberd, pike, quarterstaff, or spear, other creatures provoke an opportunity attack from you when they enter the reach you have with that weapon.

Description
Corbin was a simple carpenter, in a village on the outskirts of Baldur's Gate. The local Nobles started levying taxes, and Corbin wanted nothing of this. He was a freemen, and so were his countrymen. Being a formidable warrior, he ended up being the figurehead of a rebellion that spanned all the countyside. Battles were fought, and won. Unfortunately for him, a trap was set, and he was captured. Fearing to create a martyr, the authorities sent him to prison, hopefully to be forgotten about.
