The Drums of Five Wars Player’s Guide
Decia has historically been a land often invaded. As such it has become an amalgam of cultures and religions. Three major factions vie for power within the nation. A fragile peace has descended recently, but it can be broken with only a single shot.
Each faction has its own religion.
Character Creation Guide
This section contains the rules for PC creation. The races and classes listed are the only ones available to play. However, you can use any background available in the PHB (that make sense).
Players will all be members of the Riyas faction. Serving as members of Law enforcement, soldiers, bureaucrats, diplomats, etc. Swashbuckling adventure, duels, fighting with other factions, rebels. Dealing with high society will be the norm. Your wits, charisma, and intelligence will be tested.
15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8. It’s the starting array.
Races of the Riyas Faction
Honor Cards For this campaign we’ll be using Honor Cards
Leveling We will be using a “Milestone” leveling system rather than an XP based one to help encourage the idea that fighting is not always going to be the best survival mechanism. Basically, every 3 adventures gets you another level. Missing a session will merely cost you an Honor card, not a level.
