Ability scores

Our story will be classed as Epic Fantasy which means that you get to spend 20 points on your ability scores – Use them wisely.

Background

You were born the year 4688 (this makes you 23 years of age). You are the 3rd or 4th son or daughter of a Baron, or the child of a Freeman (Tradesman or Merchant). You have attended grammar school for 4 year when you were young at the city of Cassomir. Cassomir is located at the mouth of the Sellen River, and is the second largest settlement in the empire of Taldor. It acts as a major trade city, and through its ports enter goods from the Inner Sea, as well as from nations to the north that utilize the Sellen as a trade route. Cassomir is also home to Taldor’s navy, and serves as the location of the nation’s imperial shipyards.

As a noble you do have a connection to the royal family but it is quite distant. You family never managed to achieved any form of acclaim and this was due to the lack of military prowess of all of your ancestors which is kind of the laughing stock of many.

As not the firstborn of a freeman your father’s inheritance will pass do your older brother who was trained from a young age to take your father’s place. That led you to look for an alternative profession in order to make do.

Although with no inheritance, your parents made sure that you will have some money in order to start your life which translates into 1500 pieces of silver (Shilling)

Notes

The monetary value of items in our game is not the same with the ones displayed in the book. For now consider that 1500 shillings are not a huge amount of money but they are enough to buy you the basic tools of an adventurers trade and keep some pocket money as well.

If you have any questions please let me know during the week
