Heroic Chronicle for the Sword Coast

Post by Tim Baker »

D&D Beyond has posted a Heroic Chronicle for the Sword Coast. The Heroic Chronicle is a new background creation tool that ties characters immediately to the setting, to NPCs, and to each other during PC creation. It was originally designed for Exandria (Critical Role's setting), but D&D Beyond has taken this game tech and ported it over for the Realms.

Here's Part 2 of the article.

So what do you think? Would this be valuable for new players who aren't familiar with Faerun?

UPDATE: Added a link to the article's second half.

That's a good point. I hadn't though of using it for NPCs.
