Adventuring Royalty[edit]

You are royalty from a humble little kingdom. You often quest for your people and for your family, blending in with the common people so as not to draw attention. But why are you adventuring at the moment? Is it another danger that befalls your kingdom? Has an evil force captured your family? Or is it simply the call of adventure that keeps drawing you back?

Skill Proficiencies: Perception, Persuasion

Tool Proficiencies: One musical instrument of your choice

Equipment: A set of common clothes, a set of noble clothes, a hat or headwear of your choice, a ring with your family's insignia, and a pouch containing 10 gp.

Royal family Member[edit]

To determine your place in the royal family, roll for a specialization.

d4 Specialization
1 The King
2 The Queen
3 The Prince
4 The Princess

Feature: Aid from the Forest[edit]

Your adventuring has taken you through the forests and wilderness many a time, so naturally, you've taken a liking to the forests and the creatures that live there. Should you help a creature of the forest, they may return the favor either through giving you food, information, or even aid you in a sticky situation. However, it should be noted that most creatures of the forest will not fight for you

Alternate Feature: Leader by the People[edit]

Your humble nature has stuck well with the people of your kingdom, admiring your decision to walk among the people as every man does. Because of this, residents of your kingdom or people who have heard of you may provide assistance in the form of food, bed, or simple supplies.
