Age of Obsidian
Rolling New Characters
The characters will all be starting out in the city of Korvosa. It’s not necessary that your character is a native of Korvosa (although it will be useful if at least a couple in the party are.) A players guide for the setting is available here. Notice the character trait section on pp 14-16. The hook to get all your characters together for the first time will be that each of them has had an unpleasant past association with Gaedran Lamm, so try and choose one of the suggested traits as part of your character’s back story.
If you’re not sure about generating the back story for your character, or if you want to run a non-Korvosan character but aren’t sure how to get them to city, I am planning on having a short 1 on 1 session with everyone to help set the stage, so we can talk about any background related questions then.
