From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Your life and actions are dictated by one person, the father if you will. You do as you are told, completing whatever order you are given, whether it be stealing a small gem, or killing a small child. The lengths you go to don't matter, as long as it is completed. Unless... You broke free from such a thing? Or perhaps you're simply on a quest from command of your superior? Do you wish to continue to act as a dog on a leash or live by your own choices and wishes?

Skill Proficiencies: Choose two from: Intimidation, Persuasion, Deception, Investigation, Insight

Tool Proficiencies: Game set of your choice or Disguise kit

Languages: One extra language of your choice

Equipment: Game set of your choice or Disguise kit, A knife engraved with the symbol of your godfather, fine clothes, belt pouch with 15 GP
