Background:

Mulmaster Aristocrat

Source: Mulmaster Bonds and Backgrounds


From your hilltop home, you have looked down (literally and perhaps figuratively) on the unwashed masses of Mulmaster for your entire life. Your fur-trimmed robes and training in the visual and performing arts mark you as wealthy and perhaps well-born; you are a member of the City of Danger's aristocracy.

None of your immediate family members sits on the Council of Blades or is even a Zor or Zora… yet. Nevertheless, you are one of Mulmaster's elite, and whether you personally covet a higher standing or not, you are at home in the dance halls where the aristocracy gathers to plot, to scheme, to do business, to discuss the arts, and, above all, to see, and to be seen.


Skill Proficiencies: Deception, Performance
Tool Proficiencies: One type of artistic artisan's tools and one musical instrument
Equipment: One set of artisan's tools or musical instrument, a set of fine clothes, and a purse containing 10gp

Feature: Highborn

Mulmaster is run by and for its aristocracy. Every other class of citizen in the city defers to you, and even the priesthood, Soldiery, Hawks, and Cloaks treat you with deference. Other aristocrats and nobles accept you in their circles and likely know you or of you. Your connections can get you the ear of a Zor or Zora under the right circumstances.

Mulmaster Aristocrat Bond

d6Bond

1I have dedicated my wealth and my talents to the service of one of the city's many temples.

2My family and I are loyal supporters of High Blade Jaseen Drakehorn. Our fortunes are inexorably tied to hers. I would do anything to support her.

3Like many families who were close to High Blade Selfaril Uoumdolphin, mine has suffered greatly since his fall. We honor his memory in secret.

4My family plotted with Rassendyll Uoumdolphin's brother. Betrayal is the quickest route to power.

5Wealth and power are nothing. Fulfillment can only be found in artistic expression.

6It's not how you feel, who you know, or what you can do - it's how you look, and I look fabulous.

d6Flaw

1I have difficulty caring about anyone or anything other than myself.

2Having grown up with wealth, I am careless with my finances. I overspend and am overly generous.

3The ends (my advancement) justify any means.

4I must have what I want and will brook no delay.

5My family has lost everything. I must keep up appearances, lest we become a laughingstock.

6I have no artistic sense. I hide that fact behind extreme opinions and have become a trendsetter.
