Dan's Campaign of Adventure
Former Dragon Cultist
Background – Former Dragon Cultist
If you choose this background, feel free to edit it or embellish further. See Players Handbook pages 125-141 for other options for personality traits, ideals, bonds, flaws and alignments.
You were a member of the dragon cult and fled the battle at the Well of Dragons. You were mostly in it for the money, it was a paying job, right? While in the cult, you heard that a wounded dragon fled the Well of Dragons to hide out in the ruins of a town called Thundertree, 25 miles east of Neverwinter.
You have heard that surviving fellow members of the cult have gone to Thundertree to make overtures to the dragon. While you may not agree with the motives of the cult, you have always admired dragons – highly intelligent and powerful magical creatures. This dragon is sure to know useful lore or ancient secrets. If you can just find a way to persuade it to part with them, they are bound to be of benefit to you.
You tend to do whatever seems best at the time. Sure, you’ve done some things you’re not proud of, and you’re not personally committed to making the world a better place. But you have no interest in causing suffering or making things worse than they already are.
