Foundling

An odd birthmark, a strange smell: somehow, the touch of elsewhere still lingers. You’ll never fit in, at least not where you’re at. Roll on the Omens table, but keep the results private for now.

Who took you in? Roll 1d6:

   
1 An old hunter. You were both quite happy, until it all ended. Take a Weathered Longbow (d8, bulky) and a Leather Jerkin (1 Armor).
2 A wizened apothecary, who taught you the healing arts but maintained a clinical detachment. Take a Healing Ungent (restores d4 STR).
3 A druid, who taught you the language of trees. When it came time to leave you took with you only a Gnarled Staff (d8) and the promise that one day you would return.
4 A gruff blacksmith from a sleepy river town. You were always kept at arm’s length. Now the forge is cold, and you’ve moved on. Take a Smith’s Apron (petty) and a set of Oft-mended Chain Mail (2 Armor, bulky).
5 A troupe of traveling entertainers. For a time, they were like family to you. One day you woke up and they were gone with no explanation. Take a Storybook, a Dagger (d6), and some burning questions.

What keeps bad tidings at bay? Roll 1d6:

     
1 Pipeweed Your good luck charm. Conversations tend to flow more easily after a smoke. 6 uses.
2 Stink Jar Shattering this jar releases an odor so foul all nearby must make a STR save or immediately vomit. 1 use.
3 Ivy Worm A green worm often mistaken for a weed. Swallowed whole, it absorbs any toxins or rot in the body before exiting through the usual way.
4 Dream Stone A smooth blue stone that helps recall dreams more clearly. Overuse can cause dream-addiction.
5 Drowning Rod A finger-sized wooden stick that doubles in size each time it is fully submerged in water. It does not shrink down again.
6 Rabbit’s Foot You were wearing it when they found you. They say it is the foot of she who left you, and that it protects you from witch magic.
