Based on what Thorsten has just posted (I recall that section now that it's shown to me again):

If you absolutely positively *have* to fill out the languages on your character sheet right now, please use the standard rules in the PHB (with the caveat listed in the FAQ). When we start the game, accepted players can request changes in their languages based on background, nationality, culture, etc, and we will discuss.

Thanks for clarifying! I haven't read the entire rulebook, so I hadn't gotten to that bit.

Sorry if my question caused any confusion! Basically, what I meant was that, as a Warforged, my character can speak Common and "one other language of my choice". Since she was built in Cere (where Common was prevalent), and has spent her years serving in the Brelish military (where Common is the main language, I'd assume), I didn't really have an obvious language she would've picked up over the years (like, say, a Brelish merchant who has contacts in Zilargo would have). But she did spend the past two years poring over ancient lore as part of her research. I was merely wondering if there was any go-to language for arcane lore.

I completely agree with Thorsten and the approach in Eberron, by the way- language should be based on background, not race. I once played a Tiefling who was raised by Gnomes, so I made sure he knew Gnomish or at the very least, I came up with a reason why he would've learned Infernal laterinstead of Infernal.

As for which language Shelly gets... I'm gonna hold off for a bit- provided she gets selected for the game, I'll choose either Giant or Draconic, based on what languages the other party members speak, if that's alright .

Regarding wealth... For now Shelly just needs some extra tools. Honestly I'm not too concerned- I played Warhammer Fantasy RPG, so I'm used to charging greater demons with and maybe a leather codpiece, if you're feeling like dressing extra fancynaught but a sharp wooden stick .

Also get well soon, Unko!

Can anyone tell me where House Tarkanan is? I don't know if they have an outpost like the official Dragonmarked houses, or just the home of their founder, or what. It's not a critical detail, really, but I couldn't find any references to it in Rising from the Last War.

House Tarkanan (The house for aberrant dragonmarked) was based in Sharn, but I do not believe there has been any mention of it in 5E yet.

If you go by Rising from the Last War, it seems as if House Tarkanan is included with the "criminal activities" in Sharn, which would make it likely based in either Lower Dura or The Cogs (p. 179).

Okay, finally getting to feedback. Oof, today has been a doozy! Some questions that have come up in the interim:

Because House Tarkanan is a criminal organization, its headquarters are not generally known. That said, it's canon that their headquarters is a Mansion in Dragon Towers (Middle Central Plateau) (Sharn City of Towers, pg45). Note that, even as criminal organizations go, these are bad dudes, doing dirty work that the Boromars traditionally refused to, such as Assassination.

Excellent. Thanks for this, just for general knowledge. I have some things to re-read!

I had to go digging for that tidbit! I think there's a strong implication that the organization is decentralized. There are probably safehouses and strongholds throughout Sharn (and beyond). But that's where the head honcho is said to live... unless that's not the real leader of the Tarkanans!

I added the answers to your questions at the end of my app post so all Breya's info stays in one spot. Also added Library of Korranberg to my list of places/things I'd like to see in the game if possible/eventually.

Given the decentralized nature of Tarkanan as you've laid it out, my writing sample doesn't work quite as well (there's no "walk up and knock on their door"), but I think it still provides insight to Breya, so I'll leave it as is.
