A Dagger Before Ye

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Roll20

Dungeons & Dragons 5e



About the adventure

A stolen dagger, thieves in hiding, assassination attempts, political intrigue, and a good old-fashioned sewer crawl. Underhanded dealings are going on in the shadows of Rogelhan, as the lauded mercenaries known as Thorne's Company clash with the local Thieves' Guild. Baron Harek's family has secrets - secrets that people are willing to pay, or kill, to obtain. The baron has hired on a cadre of mercenaries from Thorne's Company, who find themselves embroiled in a power struggle between lieutenants of the Thieves' Guild. After concocting a daring and risky plan to lure one of the Thieves' Guild leaders into an ambush, the heroes find themselves delving into the sewers beneath the city, hoping to get the drop on their cunning and dangerous enemy.

How will character creation work

The characters are currently level 3; all official Wizards of the Coast races, classes, etc. are available for character creation. For stats, roll 4d6, re-roll 1s once, then drop the lowest die and add up the remaining three. Do that 6 times and assign stats as desired! If you don't like the results of the roll, you may switch them out for the standard array (15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8). Example: Rolling 4d6, I get 4, 4, 2, 1. I re-roll the 1, and get another 1, which I have to keep. I drop the lowest die (the 1), and my total is 4+4+2=10. I roll for my next stat and get 6, 3, 1, 1. I re-roll both 1s and get a 4 and a 5! Dropping the lowest die (the 3), I add 6+4+5=15!
