[Gnomish Embassy] Rogue Diamonds

Post by Boddynock » Thu Nov 29, 2018 3:07 pm

The Rogue Diamonds

An adventuring group currently based in the Duchy of Ten region. There are a few nods woven into the text that include Aleena the Cleric, Bargle, Rodhin, and Bronstein. They could be a little bit of anything in a campaign. They could be rivals to the PC's, they could be allies, they could just be flavor text to mention when a GM is talking about the 'news of the region'. You could even break apart the characters and just use them as NPC's to interact with your players.

Nice!

I thought that Dragonborn were something new to 4th Edition D&D.

I know that Dragonlance has Dragonians. Is there something like Dragonborn in old school Blackmoor material?

I don't know about Blackmoor, but dragonborn were introduced in D&D 3.5. They had a different backstory from the Nentir Vale dragonborn for 4e.

The parts with the Dragonborn are a nod to 'Rodhin' which was made by one of our members. You can read more about it here.

I hope you don't mind if I steal your scale color-caste system for my campaign :)
