It was our first session with a new group. There was a Human Rogue, a Human Paladin, a Halfling Druid, and I played an Elven Sorcerer. None of us had read any part of the handbook, but we were reassured by the DM (the only one in the company with proper D&D experience), that it was just an origin story.
Let me set the scene: My mentor abandoned our clan a week before the events took place. When asked if I was alarmed, I said, "Nah, he's gone somewhere to pick up herbs.” But that night my character had a dream: His mentor warned him that a nearby Human village was in grave danger.
I took off to warn them as instructed.
