Hey!

If it's UA, I'm cool with it. Your characters can be whatever you feel you want them to be. The story will start with an open job call you all would have responded to, so you can make a sailor, adventurer, scholar, etc.

I just got back from a work trip. Tomorrow I'll edit the OP with interest placeholders and a bit more of a prompt from which you guys can all shape your characters.

One more question. How do you feel about Aarakocra and flying speed in this campaign?

Elemental Evil is totally fair game. The PHB has rules on mixing fly/walk speed are fine.

Know that Aarakocra are going to feel very limited in their roleplay opportunities. The rare races account for like 1% of the population, so you'd be quite an oddity in this area.

I can't find in any of the books rules for swimming in armor. How is that going to work?Medium armor vs heavy armor, and also could the penalty be offset by say taking medium armor master?

This sounds interesting. The introduction said that there are some Race restrictions. What races are allowed and what are the restrictions?

Name: Pinafore 'Daddy-o' Smalls
Gender: Male
Race: Human (Variant)
Class: Rogue (Arcane Trickster)
Alignment: We'll see.
Deity: Not on speaking terms with at least one of 'em.

Background
  • Acolyte
Traits
  • I stretch the truth for the sake of a good story.
  • I quote or misquote sacred texts and proverbs at almost any opportunity.
Ideals
  • The sea is freedom - freedom to go anywhere and do anything.
  • Knowledge is the path to power and domination.
Bonds
  • I sold my soul for knowledge - I hope to do great deeds and win it back.
Flaws
  • My pride will probably lead to my destruction.
  • Unlocking an ancient mystery is worth the price of a civilisation.

Appearance:

Personality:

History: Pinafore narrowly escaped seminary before he was kicked out (though he was subsequently defrocked), and by means fair and foul made way to one of the great ports: hoping to lose himself in the anonymity of the hustle and bustle of the docks. This was not to be - before long, certain inquisitors and constables were spotted around and about: there was no choice to flee, the further the better. With few funds and fewer friends, the young man had to earn his passage - over the seas, and far away. Signing on as an assistant chef was easy enough, a few cramped gestures and indistinct muttering - suddenly the hard tack is warm and sweet, bully beef redolent of garlic and spices, and grog reflavoured with a light citrus tang.

His lineswork was oddly efficient, too. As the first mate remarked, "It's like you've got three hands lad!"

I've been working on some rules, as I have noticed the same thing. I'll edit the OP soon to reflect my rules for swimming with armor and drowning.

Because I didn't edit my rough draft very well! It's edited now, thanks for catching it

I see that the campaign is starting at Level 3 - what about equipment? Do we just have the starting equipment, or can we have picked up a thing or two along the way?

Assume starting equipment, I'll award things to PC's as it's granted.

Name: Lucian Nailo
Race: Wood Elf
Class: Monk (Variant:way of the open hand)
Age: 110
Gender: Male
Alignment: Chaotic Good

Appearance: Tall for an elf at 5'11 his shoulder length red hair is almost always tied back in a ponytail, his emerald green eyes are bright and fierce. He wears a black and red uniform specific to his temple (typical Kung Fu garb) with long sleeves. Should anyone see him with his shirt off they'll see a multitude of scars all over his arms, torso and back as well as a brand on his left shoulder of a dragon the symbol of his temple.


Personality: He tends to be quiet and stoic most of the time, but his hard working nature and reliability make him likable. He never backs down from a challenge and is quick to defend his friends and shipmates from danger. He rarely speaks but when he does it's often fondly of his training or of his first ship the Dancing Dragon.

Background: Sailor
Feature: Ship's Passage
Skill Proficiency: Athletics, Perception
Tool Proficiencies: Navigator's tools, vehicles (water)

Traits: My friends know they can rely on me no matter what.
I work hard so that I can play hard when the work is done.
Ideal: The Sea is Freedom- the freedom to go anywhere or do anything.
Bond: I'll always remember my first ship.
Flaws: Once someone questions my courage, I never back
down no matter how dangerous the situation.

History:Born and raised on a remote jungle island in a warrior monk temple Lucian was trained from the time that he could walk. As a child he was loud and playful, often joking around unless training. He was like this for many years until one training mission when he was 20 they were sent out into the jungle for survival training during which time he was attacked by panther. The panther pounced on him and raked it's savage claws against his back chest and arms. During this attack it took everything that he learned to survive and kill the panther before colasping and bleeding profusely. He was found hours later and his wounds were treated though he was barely holding on to life. Comatose for days he struggling to hold on to life something changed, when he finally recovered his playful and joking manner was gone and he rarely spoke or played around choosing to focus on training stoically. His body was covered in scars that were similar to tiger stripes. The body of the panther was also recovered the meat was turned into a feast and the hide was tanned and used to make a pair of gauntlets and a backpack and given to Lucian when his training was completed. At the age of 80 he mastered all that the island could teach him and with the permission of the temple master he began preparing to leave and learn more of the world. He swam the mile long channel between the temple island and another where a port town traded with ships for supplies, this is where he met Rhogar a silver dragonborn and captain of the trading ship The Dancing Dragon. Rhogar agreed to let him work for his passage, and seeing his willingness to work and defend the ship during a pirate attack asked him to stay on with his crew. Not having any real plans of where he was going he decided to stay on and for the next 20 years before moving on traveling fullfilling bounties in small towns all over and hearing about a group of islands full of adventure thinking this would be a great experience and a chance of perfecting his martial arts he decided to go and check it out.

I didn't re-read the op yet (shame on me) but the thing a friend of mine did was that every armor which imposes stealth disadvantage also imposes disadvantage on athletics when swimming. Actually makes sense with the padded armor (where stealth disadvantage does not IMHO) because all that padding is going to be really heavy when soaked with water.
