The V.A.L.U.E. of Skullport


:skull: Styles:

  • heists
  • politics
  • Underdark

:skull: Heists:

  • at least 1/2 of the adventures involve various heists
  • also think about what your character could do in infiltration, investigation as well as social scenarios
  • these adventures are great for playing more subtile characters, who could typically shine less at the typical V.A.L.U.E. table

:skull: Length & Level:

  • these are 12 adventures in total (although I will run 6 of them first and then make a break)
  • these are mostly T1-T2 adventures (the 12th game, the grand finale, will be level 11 [T3])

:skull: Setting:

  • I will run these adventures in the Skullport - the Port of Shadows setting set in the Forgotten Realms
  • that is a port city located in the Underdark far beneath the metropolice of Waterdeep

:warning: DISCLAIMER:

  • these are D&D5E adventures as an open “hop-on/hop-off” campaign for a couple of open V.A.L.U.E. games I will dm in the coming months

    ( :cityscape: Ravnica & :worm: Age of Worms I have dm-ed as open V.A.L.U.E. campaigns before)

  • it is not an invitation to a new home campaign … sorry

  • I will incorporate some stuff from Waterdeep Dragonheist and Dungeon of the Mad Mage, but this will be reflavoured so hard, that there should not be much spoilers

  • I will adapt several adventures found in Keys from the Golden Vault
    so if you want to avoid spoilers, I would advise to not read that book yet


:skull: Skullport

Skullport , also known as the Port of Shadows , was a subterranean city located far below the metropolis of Waterdeep, within the 3rd level of Undermountain, an Underdark-megadungeon.

While rumors of this subterranean domain of villainy persisted throughout the surface world, few of its inhabitants had any knowledge of any points of entry.

Built within an immense subterranean cavern, the shadowy port was a dark reflection of Waterdeep above. Its structure was built in three tiers, interconnected by narrow catwalks and rickety scaffolding. Creaking houses built on stilts were haphazardly built in a dense network that formed a near shantytown.

On the cavewalls grows a local mushroom, called gloom, who puts the area in an eerie dim light.

  • Important Languages includes: Undercommon
  • Common Terrain includes: coast, Underdark
  • Magic: teleportation spells are inhibited

:skull: Inhabitants

Skullport’s population of roughly 4000 souls is pretty mixed:

30% humans, 15% half-orcs/orcs, 12% goblinoids, 10% drow, 7% kobolds, 6% duergar, 20% others

:skull: Skulkers

Skulker are how the inhabitants, who grew up in Skullport call themselves.
In some cases, esp. with long lived races, other inhabitants who live here long enough to also fall under this term. Skulkers are known to stick together and rumors within the community travel faster than a teleport.

:skull: Skulldiggers

Skulldigger is the nickname for inhabitants, who came from the surface (likely from the metropolis of Waterdeep) to search for fame and fortune.

Some Skulkers percieve Skulldiggers as naive, reckless, and egoistical.
As some Skulldiggers percieve Skulkers as apathic, lazy, and secretive.

:skull: Underdark Refugees

Recently there had been an influx of refugees from the Underdark, telling nightmarish stories about raging demons in the depths below…
Many of the Underdark refugees worship the goddess Eilistraee

:skull: Flameskulls

Its most notorious inhabitants however where were a collection of 13 powerful flameskulls, who dominated the city of Skullport, which was named for them. In the chaotic underground of Skullport, a city of thieves, murderers and slave-traders, the Skulls imposed some semblance of order when things got out of hand, typically by fireballing all percieved agressors.
Those flameskulls have been behaving increasingly erratic lately, even for their standards …

:skull: Character Options:

Custom Background: Skulker

You’ve lived in Skullport for years now — maybe you were born here, maybe you came here willingly, or
maybe you’re an escaped slave trying to eke out a life of your own under cover of darkness.

Skill Proficiencies: Athletics, Stealth
Tool Proficiencies: One of the following: Thieves’ Tools, Vehicle [water], or one type of gaming set.
Languages: Undercommon
Equipment: A club, silk rope (50 feet), a trinket (choose one from the Trinkets table in the PHB p160f), a set of common clothes, and a belt pouch containing 10 gp

Feature: Haven in Dangerous Straits

If you can make it in Skullport, you can make it anywhere.
You are intimately familiar with areas of cities that most people shun: ruined neighborhoods where monsters rampaged, overgrown areas that no hand has tended in decades, and the vast, sprawling rubblebelts of broken terrain that civilized folk have long abandoned.
You can find a suitable place for you and your allies to hide or rest in these areas. In addition, you can find food and fresh water in these areas, usually scavenged from the trash, for yourself and up to five other people each day.

Suggested Characteristics

Skulkers are defined by their sense of self-preservation, a necessary trait which naturally leads to quirks and tics that can give an idea of the kind of person a skulker might be.

Personality Trait (d8)

  1. Get it done quiet, don’t make a show of yourself, and don’t rock the boat — that’s the Skulker way.
  2. I’m always counting entrances and exits when I come into a building.
  3. I’m constantly expecting the Flameskulls to show up at any moment, even if I’m nowhere near Skullport.
  4. My sense of humour makes civilized types uncomfortable. Just the way I like it.
  5. I never keep my things in one organized location.
  6. I always keep my effects prepared for travel. Never know when you’ll need to quickly move out.
  7. I get twitchy when people outwardly talk about religion.
  8. I maintain an appearance that helped me blend in back home. On the surface though, it just makes me look sketchy.

Ideal (d6)

  1. Freedom. I’ve seen the worst of what can happen when people’s freedoms are restricted, and I won’t let it happen elsewhere. (Chaotic)
  2. Honour. There are horrible people in the world, and those who lack a code are doomed to become one of them. (Lawful)
  3. Belonging. My homeland does not suit me, nor does it define me. But I know I will find somewhere that does. (Neutral)
  4. Selfishness. You take care of yours, I take care of mine. Don’t expect sympathy from me for your woes. (Evil)
  5. Community. When the world is against you, what do you have but the kindness of friends and strangers? (Good)
  6. Caution. First and foremost, I am driven by a simple principle: don’t die. (Any)

Bond (d6)

  1. A good friend of mine was taken by slavers, and I haven’t seen them since.
  2. Skullport may be one big refuse heap, but it’s my home and I’ll defend it to the death.
  3. I was once a slave, and still bear a mark put on me by my old owner.
  4. Someone close to me is trying desperately to get enough money to leave Skullport and find a better life. I hope to help them.
  5. I disappeared without a trace one night and woke up in chains. But surely, someone will come looking for me some day, right?
  6. A kind soul put their life on the line for me and asked nothing in return. In a place of such darkness, their light inspires me.

Flaw (d6)

  1. I always look shabby, poor, and down-on-my- luck, no matter how much money I have.
  2. I’m always expecting situations to suddenly escalate into violence, so much so that I will sometimes do it myself.
  3. I expect everyone to take advantage of any kindness I offer.
  4. I never stick to a plan.
  5. Whenever someone asks me my name, I impulsively lie.
  6. If someone’s being nice to me, it’s because they want something from me.

note: this :point_up: is the feature of the Gruul Anarch background with the equipment of the Sailor.

Xanathar_Guild \

The Xanathar Guild

Anyone can join the Xanathar Guild, which dominates Skullport since almost two decades.
Before membership is granted, however, an applicant must pass a test that always involves the perpetration of a serious crime. Possibilities include murdering a guild member who has failed Xanathar in some fashion, kidnapping a citizen, collecting a ransom, robbing a hire-coach, or looting a warehouse.
Given that the faction is fundamentally evil, advancement is based on one’s wiles or one’s ability to dispose of rivals. Competition within the organization is fierce and often deadly. Evil characters can thrive in this environment, but the risks are seldom worth the reward.
