About the adventure

This story takes us to the muddier side of society, away from the knights in shining armour and to beggars in the streets, criminal syndicates, the mafia, yakuza and thieve's guild. ... A single bad decision or a life of misfortune, no matter what drove you here, you're here. You and a few friends have just banded together and swore to survive and thrive no matter the cost. Soon after your first gig - a small break-in - a mysterious and dangerous fellow approached you. "I come as a brother in the murky waters. The Guild has deemed your small stunt a worthy application." The stranger smiles and hands you a small journal: "In here you will find an Address and a rough map of the area around it. It will be your headquarters and Territory. If you want more you will have to rip it from those who have it." His smile widened to a fiendish expression: "We will be back to receive our due rent. Till then and good Business to you." With these words, he suddenly disappeared as if he was never here in the first place. --- This is a DnD5e Aquisitions Inc Style of Game where you are a newly formed criminal Gang striving for dominance in Waterdeep's extensive underworld. Fight, Intimidate and sneak your way through Cartels, Gangs and all else the murky waters have to offer, while steering clear of the city guards and other good-doers who might mistake your hideout as a cult or dungeon. --- If you like this concept but can’t make it to a current Session, join my discord and let me know - maybe we can arrange something. This One-Shot is complete in itself and will not include cliffhangers. Nevertheless, it is still also an entry point to a possible campaign. My Discord:
