Phlan Refugee

Source: Mulmaster Bonds and Backgrounds

Gone are the happier days of walking into the Laughing Goblin Inn after a hard day’s labor. Everything has changed, and you are lucky to be alive. Back in Phlan you could count yourself among those street-wise folks who knew when to pay a bribe and who to work with to make a living. Your ability to listen to the winds of change have saved you before, and this time they allowed you to be one of the lucky few who escaped Phlan with something more than just the shirt on your back.

Skill Proficiencies: Insight, Athletics
Tool Proficiencies: One type of artisan's tools
Languages: One of your choosing
Equipment: A set of artisan’s tools (one of your choice), a token of the life you once knew, a set of traveler’s clothes, and a pouch containing 15gp

Feature: Phlan Survivor

Whatever your prior standing was, you are now one of the many refugees who have come to Mulmaster. You are able to find refuge with others from Phlan and those who sympathize with your plight. Within Mulmaster this means that you can find a place to bed down, recover, and hide from the watch with either other refugees from Phlan, or the Zhents within the ghettos.
