Stranded in Bard's Gate
Any classes are acceptable, but keep in mind that you were hired to guard a merchant caravan. All player characters (and the merchant they were guarding) were of the same race.
Point-buy, standard fantasy – that is 15 points. We’re using bonuses from unchained.
You start at lvl 1, and progression will be slow. Skill points will be rewarded as the characters develop along with partial level-ups when challenges are overcome.
The main concern will be making money. At first just to make ends meet, and eventually save up enough to return home. Starting wealth as per core rules. Any equipment must be noted down and payed for at character creation. No magic item worth more than 300 gp.
