Regarding what we’re doing… I figured that this session was about you guys going into Waterdeep to rescue Lord Godfried. Imagine that it will begin with the revelation that Lord Godfried is in danger (in Waterdeep).
So, whatever character you want to bring is fine, but realize that this is urban nonsense. Expect to wander the underside of Waterdeep. Expect a trip to Skullport or something similar. Your first entry into Waterdeep will probably involve the Dead Rats (under the command of Paetr of Luskan), so Wererats are totally acceptable. Other than that, we work as a virtual writer’s room, so come with creativity.
