Undermountain: Dungeon of the Mad Mage

Undermountain: Dungeon of the Mad Mage

In the city of Waterdeep rests a tavern called The Yawning Portal, named after a gaping pit in its common room. At the bottom of this crumbling shaft is a labyrinthine dungeon shunned by all but the most daring adventurers. Known as Undermountain, this dungeon is the domain of the mad wizard Halaster Blackcloak. Long has the Mad Mage dwelt in its forlorn depths, seeding his layer with monsters, traps, and mysteries. To what end? That question is a constant source of speculation and concern.

This adventure takes players from 5th all the way to 20th level should they explore the entirety of Halaster's home. Twenty-three levels of Undermountain are yours to plunder.

Character creation is simple. We are doing a standard array (15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8) for ability scores and may use the following books and supplements for character creation:
-The Player's Handbooks
-Volo's Guide to Monsters
-Elemental Evil Player's Companion
-Xanathar's Guide to Everything
-The Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide
-The Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron (yes, you can play a warforged)

Your character must be level 5 and can take the human variant features if one plays a human. You may pick one uncommon item and have 500 + 1d10 x 25 gp, and normal starting equipment as well. I would also like a 3-5 paragraph description/backstory of your character along with the sheet. Submit those in the character sheets thread in the Undermountain game forum.

I will accept five players. Good luck, and enjoy the delve into Undermountain!!!
