I am running a home campaign for my family. When I asked my wife (who has never played) what kind of PC she wanted, she responded, “A princess ninja assassin!” Umm… Ok. I can make that work.
Here is what I have so far. I am running the Keep on the Shadowfell with the FR adaptation. Her PC is a Changeling Assassin. And the bones of the story goes like this.
She was born into a very secretive assassin guild of changelings. They were commissioned to assassinate an Emperor. The guild murdered the Emperor’s daughter. My wife’s PC was the assassin selected to replace the princess and get close to the Emperor. While in the palace she fell in love with the family and could not kill the Emperor when it was time to carry out the mission. Now she is on the run from her former guild.
Now I need to flesh out the story. But I need help with the details. I figure her PC originates from Nathlan, or maybe even Kara-Tur. More recently from the suburb of Marsember, Xiousing.
Any Ideas on the details? Which kingdom was the target? Which kingdom hired the guild? Anything at all would be helpful.
