The following information can be gained with a History check:
DC 15: The Selkirk family is a small merchant house that operates out of the city of Calaunt in [[Vesperin]].
DC 20: The family dates back hundreds of years. They were once one of the most influential families in [[Sembia]], providing the head of the council for years.
DC 25: Aron’s great grandfather and his branch of the family fled Sembia to Vesperin years ago, along with a few other Sembian families that had not yet sold out to [[Netheril]]. There, most of them tried to start anew.
DC 30: The family was nearly decimated when Netheril took over in Sembia. Many family members went missing during the Shadow War or perished in the Ordulin Maelstrom.
The following information can be gained with a History or Streetwise check:
DC 15: Aron seeks to establish himself in New Velar.
DC 20: He hopes to establish a regime change through political pressure and covert actions. He has not been very successful yet, due to a lack of resources and allies.
DC 25: He had a setback early this year, when he lost a lot of money after a Cormyran deal went bad. The Thenterim family he traded with almost went bankrupt. The setback forced him to dismantle a trading post in Suzail and direct his attention to gaining allies closer to his home.
DC 30: The family seems involved with a small resistance group called the [[Silver Ravens]]. The Ravens oppose Netheril’s presence in Sembia – though apparently not very successfully.
DC 35: It is rumored the Silver Ravens cooperate with the [[Harpers]] to oppose Netheril.
