Background:
"Are you sure about this.. this choice of yours?" a tall elf asked the council in dismay. His long moss colored robes swirled as he paced before a trio of elders.

"We are," the only female in the group answered confidently. The three elder elves stood upon a dais made from a large tree stump, a short set of stairs carved into it to allow access to the top.

"He has served the Enclave well in the past. With only the one incident to mar his record," the youngest elder said looking curious. "Were you not there that day? You saw him in action, saw his abilities first hand."

"Yes I saw his recklessness, his bloodlust. If not for me he would have lost more than a piece of his ear. He would..."

"Enough," the oldest and thus leader of this council said harshly. "Those events are past, and thus learned from. We have not made our decision lightly. Dellrak Bruttinhiem will be the Emerald Enclave's representative on this very important mission."

"He is stubborn, wild, and.. and..." the protractor started to say.

"He is a free spirit, beholden only to nature's demands," the oldest elder interjected.

"He is untested, weak, and will be out of his element, not to mention..."

"His abilities will grow, abilities needed for just this type of assignment." the younger male interrupted.

"He is a DWARF!"

"No!" the female elder cut in sharply, "He is a survivor. And a survivor is what we need."

Serpent Venom (Injury): A creature subjected to this poison must succeed on a DC 11 Constitution saving throw, taking 10 (3d6) poison damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. Injury poison can be applied to weapons, ammunition, trap components, and other objects that deal piercing or slashing damage and remains potent until delivered through a wound or washed off. A creature that takes piercing or slashing damage from an object coated with the poison is exposed to its effects.


Antitoxin: A creature that drinks this vial of liquid gains advantage on saving throws against poison for 1 hour. It confers no benefit to undead or constructs.[/sblock]

Dusty Dragon
[sblock=character concept]The rule-wise concept, pretty simple: Human Dex-based melee fighter (will be battlemaster) using a rapier and buckler. Background is criminal (the spy variety). This character can therefore fight and use stealth pretty well.

Rodrigo Di Castalone
Normal human (+1 to all stats)
Base roll generated with Redrick Roller (wich generates random 27 point stat sets)

Strenght 12 (+1, save +3)
Dex 18 (+4)
Con 14 (+2, save +4)
int 12 (+1)
Wis 14 (+2)
Cha 11 (+0)

Story:

My character, Rodrigo di Castalone, is the son of a swordmaster, and like his father he learned the art of dueling and swordsmanship. He's not quite a commoner, but not quite a noble either.

Anyway, Tashalar is in negotiations to join the Lord's alliance, and this has been dragging on for some time. A young noble is to be sent to Waterdeep as a part of this process and to learn more about "how things are done in the north". Rodrigo is to be sent with him as a companion, a guard, and a spy. Rodrigo was rigorously trained for this... but is no match for the sophistication and skills of the Waterdeep counterintelligence. They decided that instead of getting rid of him, they would *turn* him instead. Rodrigo, over the next two years, becomes a strong believer in the cause of the Lords' Alliance and, while remaining loyal to his homeland, genuinely believes that Tashalar should join.

However this shift of beliefs soured the relationship with his patron, and by the time the delegation is to return to Tashalar, Rodrigo is effectively unemployed. The Lord's Alliance, having a lead pointing south but unwilling to extend too much resources, sends Rodrigo to investigate...[/sblock]

[sblock=Early history] Tashalar is relatively at peace, but has a warrior tradition in the form of mercenary companies that fight abroad. They are known for their skill at swordsmanship, crossbows and resourcefulness. When Rodrigo was 5 years old, his father left to go on campaign, and did not return for 7 years. During that time, Rodrigo lived with his uncle, where he started learning his trade - armorer. However, upon his father's return, Rodrigo devoted himself to mastering the art of the blade and sought to emulate his father.

His father's company traveled far and wide, and a number of those years were spent campaigning in Chult. Rodrigo has heard many tales about Chult, and part of him is very curious to see it for himself. Given the nature of his father's experience, and the vagaries of story-telling, Rodrigo is quite knowledgeable about certain aspect of Chult's geography and culture, and very ignorant of others.[/sblock]

Main Gauche (see http://arms-n-armor.com/dagg048.html )
Rodrigo uses weapons that are a bit sturdier than some of the duel-optimized narrow blades, but that are much better vs armored foes or large creatures.
Studded leather (a jack of plates, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_of_plate )
Light crossbow, 40 bolts
This is a particularly fine weapon, as Tashalar are well known for their crossbows
Darts, 12 - a local chultian product, with blue-black fletching
explorer's pack
armorsmith's tools
Common clothes, wide brimmed hat
Crowbar
Hatchet
Knife
2 sacks
3 torches

[sblock=Appearance]Rodrigo is in his mid 20s but appears older - his hands seem bony, he is hollow-cheeked and his dark brown hair has receeded into a widow's peak. His dark eyes are keen and darting beneath bushy brows. He has a full beard kept short, with mustache en point. His ears are somewhat large and his nose is sharp.

He is of average height (5'9") and of slight built, narrow shouldered and hip. Despite being quite lanky, he has wiry strength and is stronger than he appears. He is fit and moves with an easy confidence, but with a somewhat formal, straight back bearing - never stooping.

He wears the livery of his fencing school still, a mixture of black and red[/sblock]

[/sblock][sblock="alternate image"]f7443aa6d70f6ac03e58078d60bcddce.jpg[/sblock][sblock=backstory]It used to be said that one of Miss Enna’s girls could make the ideal governess, consort, or queen. And for the first two hundred years of the old elf’s school, that was true; it was by then generally acknowledged that this was an understatement. One of Miss Enna’s girls could do anything, and the finest families would desperately vie to send their daughters there. Imogen took Miss Enna’s lessons (one of only three humans in her year), paid for by a rich and connected family friend, whom she calls her Uncle. It was speculated that since he was a bachelor he had hopes for her himself; which he did, after a fashion.

Imogen did not accept any of the offers of engagement she received on completion of her training. There had been several, since she had captained the archery team and had done so without magic, as was the habit of many of the school's top girls. Instead, she went to work for the Black Network, exactly as her Uncle intended. In the few months she has been connected, she has served as an escort, a sniper, and a chef; each of those assignments resulted in a death (two by arrow; one by 16 lashes, discovered before the soup course was served), none of which could formally be attributed to Miss Imogen, whose reputation remains impeccable.

Miss Imogen has been sent on the current mission because her Uncle trusts her, more than the more experienced operatives he handles. He answers to Pock-Marked Poe himself, who asked for a recommendation. And because he knows there will be more deaths to come.[/sblock]***[sblock="notes, etc."]Note on custom background:there is a custom feature; if in doubt, apply as “position of privilege” from the Noble background.[/sblock][sblock="level 1"]LN Human Fighter 1

Chrysagon was still a young boy when he enrolled in the war. His recklessness was his strength as much as his flaw. Galvanized by the Tempus priests, he was always volunteer for the most dangerous expeditions. One day, as his company passed through the Forest of Mir in Tethyr, they encountered a necromancer. Chrysagon barely survived but the company was annihilated and joined the army of the dead. There, Chrysagon met a priest of Kelemvor who took him under his wing.

[sblock=This is his story]1467 Mir Forest, Thetyr

"Caw." Laying on the ground, the first thing Chrysagon felt was the horrid smell of decay. "Caw." He opened an eye and discovered a wide red sky. "This sunset was truly beautiful", he thought. "Caw." He focused on that sound, something black was moving in his field of view. "Caw." A crow. He was snatching flesh from an opened wound in his left shoulder. Chrysagon didn't feel any pain, at first. Then it came, a scorching pain. A memory flash stroke his mind at this very moment. It was a sword, a magic one. His leather vest was a weak protection against it.

"Caw." Another crow landed to feed on the dying young man. He tried to move his legs. No response. Nothing from the right arm neither, when he tried to drive away the crows. Barely conscious, he had no idea of his physical state. The effort to raise and check his wounds was terrible, but he had to know. To know if everything was lost or maybe he will survive this day. He turned his head to find his arm rammed into a beheaded chest. This vision of horror gave him enough strength to pull it out, discovering his red bloody hand, but still with five fingers on it. The happiness of not being crippled erased all the suffering he was enduring. Searching for his legs he didn't understand immediately at what he was looking at. It had no sense. Then he realized that he was buried under a pile of entangled corpses in some impossible positions. Chrysagon tried to remove himself from this blood bath pulling out by arm force. His two legs appeared. Relief. He tried to stand up. Immediately, the searing pain made him want to scream, but he gritted his teeth and fell on his back, out of the pile. He stayed too much time under the dead bodies and his legs refused to move anymore.

Time passed. How much? He could not tell. When he woke up, the sun was rising. It is at those moments of profound despair that you start being poetic, everything seems delightful. Is it death? Chrysagon was ready to welcome it. It was a beautiful day to die. He closed his eyes, In peace... But something pulled him out of this dreaming state. It was a man, looting his boots. The man was not a soldier. But a scavenger. Those guys wait the end of combat to steal from the bodies anything valuable. The lowest thing a man could do. The body snatcher ignored that Chrysagon was alive. He took the first weapon his hand could grab and swung it. Dealing with the boots, the scavenger didn't see the metallic spiked ball coming for his head. He rolled on the ground, holding what was left of his jaw and looking everywhere in a desperate attempt to find a way to prevent the blood from flowing out of his veins. Chrysagon was standing up, ignoring the dying man. He was already staring at the others in a posture of defiance, silently. There were three of them. They didn't see what happened, too busy finishing off helpless soldiers. They looked at each other then back at Chrysagon, evaluating the risk. They could read on his face the determination of an already dead man. His calm was disturbing. An unknown warrior, armed with a heavy flail, one of them already down, in one blow. Too risky. They fled, letting their friend bleed to death. But only to come back in force later, thought the boy.

The adrenaline ceased quickly his effect. Chrysagon knelled, this weapon was so heavy. Looking around him, he could realize the extent of the loss. He was in this clearing, In the midst of what was his companions, for a day. He was the only survivor. Alone, with the crows. The images flashed back, replacing his own sight. They didn't see it coming. An ambush. It started with an arrow rain. Then spears. Many fell. In the center of the shields circle, the captain yelled to hold the line. Then, we saw them. Not dead nor living. They stepped out of the tree line. Led by this red dressed woman on horseback. She pointed a finger at us. Chrysagon felt his heart stop for a moment. The man at his right collapsed with a silent scream on his face. And then they charged. The crash was terrible. Behind his massive shield, Chrysagon held the line. Using both his arms to sustain the pressure. The more we killed and the more they came. Looking around he could see this woman. She was alone, without any protection. He found a breach and run at her whit only the energy of despair. She was alone for a reason, because she didn't need anybody. A gesture of her hand and a blackened sword appeared from nowhere, hurling at him. The thick steeled shield was not strong enough to stop that blade. The vision stopped.

His company was counting two hundred men. He could barely see thirty of them, stacked there. Where were the others? Then this man showed up. An old guy, wearing a grey robe. Preparing his flail, the boy asked, "Who goes there? Death took me already today, I'm not afraid of you, wizard."

"I have long walked by your side, boy. Today is not your day, be at peace. Death has is count. Now, let me do my duty. But if you insist... there is always time for another last-minute..."

Chrysagon stayed there, staring at this man dragging corpses. He was not here to steal anything. But to take care of the dead. Chrysagon could not resist and helped him in his task. It took the day to dig the shared tomb. The warriors were cleaned, embalmed and oiled. Then laid down on a bed of swords for the glory of Tempus. By nightfall, the ritual was completed. Knelled in front of the stone tablet topping the tomb, the man and Chrysagon prayed.

"Lord of Battles, welcome these souls in your realm, The Warrior's Rest. They lived up to your name and they died in your name. They deserve to stand at your side."

The man raised. "Come, my son. Walk with me. A long journey awaits us."

And Chrysagon followed the man. He recognized the skeletal balance on his robe. the man was a cleric of Kelemvor, the Judge. They walked in silence for a while. But Chrysagon could not hold it any longer.

"Father, I have some questions."
"Ask, and you shall receive."
"I don't understand why death took my brothers and let me live. It is cruel. Some of them deserved it more than me. ."
"Death isn’t cruel, merely terribly, terribly good at his job."
"But they were good men. They did everything the war priests commanded."
"Goodness is about what you do. Not who you pray to."
"But we deserved to win this battle. It is not right."
"There is no such a thing as Right or Wrong. Just places to stand."
"But she raised the dead, Father. Isn't that wrong? The clerics told us they will protect us. I don't want to believe in Tempus and his priests anymore."
"Belief is one of the most powerful forces in the multiverse. It may not be able to move mountains, exactly. But it can create someone who can."

Chrysagon remained silent for a while after this last sentence, meditating. But one question was burning in his mind.
"Can you tell me when I'm going to die?"
"If people knew when they are going to die, I think they probably couldn't live at all. Just live your life as it comes., my son"
"But, how much time do I..."
"Time is a drug. Too much of it kills you."
"But..."
"Don't you ever stop asking questions?"

At that very moment, they arrived on the top of a hill. Chrysagon looked at the horizon, thinking at the Father's words. It was a beautiful day to live.

[/sblock]Chrysagon followed the priest to the major center of Kelemvorite worship, the Tower of Skulls in Ormath, an abbey built as a ziggurat whose walls are carved with a stone facing in the shape of staring human skulls. There, he joined the ranks of the cult of Death. When the High Lord Doom decided to send some help to the investigation team in charge of the Death Curse, Chrysagon volunteer to go. What happened then, remains to be written.

Kyhton 21, Year of the Warrior Princess - Port Nyanzaru, Chult

High Lord Doom Indraeyan,

As Instructed, I have placed myself at the service of the Gauntlet to add our expertise in this matter. Those Knights are brave and valiant brothers in arm, they welcomed me as one of their own. I received the order to join an investigation team leaving for Chult. It seems that the source of this Evil is buried somewhere in these tangled jungles. The assembled team is made up of the convergence of very diverse interests. I like to think that unity makes strength, however I suppose in this case, what unite us is more the old saying "The enemy of my enemy is my friend". Only time will tell. I didn't have the opportunity to learn more about them but it seems to me that some fine elements are gathered on this vessel. I am confident that, together, we will find a way to eradicate this Curse.

I pray for you, My High Lord Doom, and may The Judge enlightens me along the path.


Chrysagon of Mir, your faithful Iron Brother.

Post Scriptum: I'm pleased to inform you that a monk of the Order of the Long Death is taking part of this expedition.


Kyhton 22, Year of the Warrior Princess - Port Nyanzaru, Chult


High Lord Doom Indraeyan,

My steps have led me to the Weave of Life, a rug and tapestry shop owned by a certain Klevin Van'Sharen. The merchant asked us to intervene in one of his cases. It seems that some sort of ancient amulet could be connected with the Curse. Unfortunately, we missed the opportunity to seize it, for now.

We have made contact with Alistair Bol of the Gauntlet. Strange disappearances were reported in Port Nyanzaru, they seem connected with the "Call of Death". Our suspicions were confirmed when we found them, in the Old City. You were right, My Lord, the dead are walking in Chult.

But more importantly, a name has surfaced: The Soulmonger. The thirst of this necromantic artifact for souls is almost quenched and our time is being counted. The source of this evil seems to hide deep into the jungle, it will be our next big step.I'm confident that our Alliance will soon bring the results you are expecting.

We are facing a great threat, my Lord. I hope I'll be up to this task.

I pray for you, My High Lord Doom, and may The Judge enlighten me along the path.


Chrysagon of Mir, your faithful Iron Brother.


Kyhton 28, Year of the Warrior Princess - Camp Righteous, Chult

High Lord Doom Indraeyan,

Like lost souls, we followed the Shoshenstar river as it was the Styx itself, leading us to our doom. Unnamed perils awaited our little company on the path to Camp Righteous but thanks to Kelemvor's protection, we finally attained our first step. We expected the Gauntlet outpost to be a corner of heaven in this endless green hell, but our hopes were dashed at the sight of the first undead abomination. Civilization seems definitely unable to expand in this jungle and it's hard to escape the conclusion that Chult is the deadliest place on all Faerune.

The Soulmonger remains hidden, deeply buried in one of those strange ruins. Is it beneath the city of Mezro? The old capital once ruled by the seven immortal Barae, famed for having spent five hundred years hidden from the world by magical means. Or on the petrified Heart of Ubtao, floating over the Aldani Basin. Or in the ruins of the ancient city Orolunga, where it is said that the guardian Saja N’baza can answer any questions. Or maybe in the hand of Ras Nsi and his Undead army.

The future, always so clear to me, has become like a black road at night. But I trust the Great Guide for I live by faith, not by sight.

I pray for you, My High Lord Doom, and may The Judge enlighten me along the path.


Chrysagon of Mir, your faithful Iron Brother.

Flamerule 1, Year of the Warrior Princess - Camp Vengeance, Chult

High Lord Doom Indraeyan,

Unfortunately, the Soulmonger was not the sole evil artefact present on this peninsula. Our path led us to Artus Cimber and his cursed ring. Its corrupting power created dissension among our little group, playing us off on each other. The influence of the ring was a fierce adversary but we finally overcame this obstacle, together. I hope the wounds are fully healed, time will tell.

Drifting on this infested river, we leaved what was once called Camp Righteous, exhausted physically and mentally. Only to find a falter company trying to survive infections and other monkey fevers. By Kelemvor's grace, we found Perne Salhana, Alistair Boll's squire. Returning to civilization was already in our mind but our happiness was short-lived as Commander Breakbone asked for our help.

Alistair Bol's mission was a dead end, my Lord. The Soulmonger is still far beyond our reach but exploring lost ruins, if nothing else, could only bring us closer.
Doubt ends where Faith begins.

I pray for you, My High Lord Doom, and may The Judge enlighten me along the path.



Chrysagon of Mir, your faithful Iron Brother.

The Nameless

Backstory:
[sblock]The Nameless has truly never known a name. His mother died in child birth while in the care of a secretive monastery of monks called the Order of the Long Death.

This order follows, rather than worships, Jergal "Scribe of the Dead". Their entire purpose is the study of death as a means of understanding life. Their monasteries welcome the diseased and dying so that they might watch and record their deaths. Often providing needed release to those in their care who seek it.

He was raised in there with the express intent of becoming one of them. But he showed exceptional talent and was chosen for a special purpose of his own. Rather than staying in the monastery he would venture out among the city, and often other cities to search out death and record it for the order. He was exceptionally skilled at his job and was eventually called upon to join the Harpers as an infiltration specialist. This mission just screamed his "name".[/sblock]

Myrral was pegged as a wildling from birth, he was on his feet within months, he ran wildly around and even as a cub, he followed warriors, tried to sneak into shamans hut and tried to listen at chieftains lodge. His grandfather, chieftain at that time was forgiving. Myrral was punished, but it never stuck. At one expedition when he was entering his teens - punitive one - dragonborn tribe got too close and took slaves from the close-by tribe of tabaxi - he managed to follow the expeditions. Unfortunately for him, he planned to run forward and find a place he could observe the events so once the warriors slowed down and started serious deployment he went forward. He got caught by a guard and the carefully planned ambush was dissolved in a rushed attack. His grandfather managed to get Myrral and several of the slaves out. But at the cost of several warriors lives and grievous wound to old cats leg. While they managed to do enough damage to dragonmen to be safe for the moment, the boy finally got what he deserved for his rashness.

Punishing regiment of despicable jobs, more degrading, filthy or hard the better, was supposed to teach the boy humility and wisdom. In the months that followed, he saw his grandfather defeated in ritual combat for the chieftain, he was constantly dirty, stinky, shunned or ordered about and then...then the nightmares started. At first, he would wake up panting or with a scream or growl, but he couldn't remember anything. Everyone just assumed it was from the punishment or maybe guilt. But despite talks with the shaman, with parents, with what friends he had remaining the nightmares got worse. He started remembering the darkness. Then the cold. He had visions of a comfortable cat suddenly enveloped in the dark and cold. Warm, fed cat on a tree being swept down by black stick. Tabaxi sitting around the fire blown away by a bolt of cold, fire extinguished, the fur rimed with frost (which he didn't even recognize and put in perspective only by talking with the shaman). There was a creature, not tabaxi, no fur, pink skin, flat teeth...that was being smothered by cold, dark vines. And this time, there was a hint of the tree involved.

Myrral started learning from the shaman. He was protected from evil, put to sleep with drugs and went onto spiritual travels in shamans hut. At one point, tabaxi started dying from minor wounds or sicknesses, from infections that rarely killed before...Finally, the shaman accepted that the malady couldn't be resolved by his powers and read the bones. His reading said that The Lord of Cats is sending Myrral to the world, learning about it, meeting new people and trying to find out the source of his nightmares. The only hint they had of anything was that last dream about the tree choking someone not of cat people. Thus, Myrral quickly packed his meager equipment and rushed out only to be stopped by the old shaman. 'Once again, you're rushing out, young one. Consider first, run later.' But Myrral had enough of the miserable life in the village, guilt hitting him every time he saw old Miar-rkuh hobbling through the village. He went out toward the only assassin vine known in their territory. Now a young man, no longer a boy, trained intensively in shamanistic tradition of his people and powerful in Tree Song, he went out hoping against hope to save that strange creature and maybe save himself in the eyes of the gods.
