Enter the Acorns
Wherein we introduce you to The Acorns! The mightiest adventuring company ever to grace the streets of Waterdeep… or at least they used to be. They are (in some particular order):Dani the UncannyFollowing a total party kill (TPK) of the entire acorns roster by a beholder, Dani the office manager in Waterdeep, is left as the sole employee, head wizard, and sole proprietor of “The Right Order of the Spear, the Staff, and the Oak”.  Dani is a bookish young Wood Gnome who’s just trying to get the order back on track, even if he is having to break the Gnomes-Only tradition… Rina RanthurthThe daughter of hill dwarf traders from the Rift, Rina was born and raised in the city, and has only been back to the rift once or twice in her entire life. Rina is a bit of a socialist revolutionary in priestly garb, and she’s taken up with a local Dragonborn Bard and decided that they are the one to play the soundtrack to her eventual revolution. After a night of hard drinking Rina snagged her bard and signed them both up with the Acorns hoping to make a name for herself, and more importantly her ideals.Prixan of the Sun HillsA flower child, Prixan was born in the communal hatchery of the Sun Hills sept of Dragonborn. A small community of artists, thinkers, and musicians seperated from the clan at large so as to prevent idleness among the clans youth, they are still seen as necessary for the entertainment and enrichment of the clan. Prixan was an unusual albino dragonborn, whose bloodline was Bronze despite their snowy white dragon-like appearance. The songs of the Sun Hills, the many volunteer “Mothers” who raised the communal brood up, and their largely peaceful lives had struck a chord with a bearded young dwarven cleric who’d agreed to let Prixan stay with her. Maybe it was the music, or maybe it was Prixans slim dragonic figure, or Prixans androgynous Bowie-like stage presence that attracted the dragon worshiping bearded dwarf woman.NeepsBorn to Mama Basilisk, the notorious noble girl turned elite assassin turned den mother of the Basilisk gang, Neeps strives to build a better life. An expert forger, Neeps has created another identity as Ahmedya Rodami, widow of the late (and fictitious) moneylender Willam Rodami. Trying to pull herself, and her twin brother Tatties, off the streets and into wealth and influence, she’s signed them both up with the Acorns, and secretly invested in several shares of the company through her alternate identity. A creature of Sarcasm and Sass, she’s going to make the Acorns work for her and her brother. TattiesAn Urban barbarian, Tatties disposition was born of fighting with his 6 brothers, surviving the machinations of his twin sister, and enduring Mama Basilisks understanding of cuisine. He’s not a savage of the wastelands and wilderness, but rather a savage of the cobblestone jungle, and back alley survival. Tatties knows the sewers of Waterdeep like the backs of his scarred hands. Neeps, his twin sister, has gotten him to sign on with acorns, he’s not entirely sure why but Neeps usually has a plan with these sorts of things. And on the plus side he gets to work with a cool dragon, and a Dwarf who doesn’t smell like a sewer. ResourcesFast Character GeneratorLady Tiefling Instagram (Kelzeon Homepage)Hoard of the Dragon QueenGangs of WaterdeepDM vs. GM InstagramSarah's Realm

The Character creation episode, Mark 2! Last time, on DM vs. GM, we announced that we would be doing a 5e game run by DM Sarah and played by GM Troy (me). This is the first episode in that series. Sarah will be running Hoard of the Dragon Queen. Over the course of this series I will take a party of first level adventurers through the machinations of mad dragons. In this episode we create the first character in the party, a Dragonborn with some interesting twists. In the coming days we’ll be posting the rest of our characters to the DM vs. GM blog. You might be wondering about “Mark 2”Well we tried to generate all the characters first and I grew a little frustrated with D20 era character generation. As I’ve said on the show, I pretty much checked out at AD&D 2e, and It took us almost two hours to make me grok it. You live you learn. Anyways stay tuned, because next week, since we are behind a bit, there will be a bonus episode with outtakes from our first go!Follow us on Instagram! 5e Free no-art edition (PDF)AD&D 2e Players Hand Book, Dungeon Masters GuideCouncil of Wyrms#gamerparenttruthWizards (Film)Bastards and BloodlinesTony DiTerlizziPlanescapeBlackstarCollege of the OperaBahamut
