The Grand Games
This stately, three-story house is bursting with life. At the ground floor sits a large shop filled with plants both dried and living. The third floor has been converted into a greenhouse, whose translucent glass walls allow anyone on the street to see the rainbow of flowers blossoming within.
Fala Lefaliir, an herbalist and a member of the Guild of Apothecaries & Physicians, lives in and runs the shop alone. They sell nonmagical herbal remedies, plants, gardening supplies, and a smattering of magical potions.
Fala Lefaliir is an outgoing wood elf with long, braided hair. Fala is neither male nor female and if referred to as “he” or “she,” gently requests to be addressed by name or as “they.”

Drow Gunslinger’s Pistol
Type: Weapon (pistol) Cost: 250 gp Weight: 3 lbs Ammunition (firearms), Loading, Range (30/90)
Nearly impossible to find at markets, drow firearms are a new and volatile technology, and as such bring their own unique set of weapon properties. Some properties are followed by a number, and this number signifies an element of that property (outlined below). These properties replace the optional ones presented in the Dungeon Master’s Guide. Firearms are ranged weapons and proficiency with a pistol is required for a proficiency bonus to apply to the attack role.
Reload (1). The weapon can be fired a number of times equal to its Reload score before you must spend 1 action to reload. You must have one free hand to reload a firearm.
Misfire (5). Whenever you make an attack roll with a firearm, and the unadjusted dice roll is equal to or lower than the weapon’s Misfire score, the weapon misfires. The attack misses, and the weapon cannot be used again until you spend an action to try and repair it. To repair your firearm, you must make have tinker's tools available and make a successful tinker’s tools check (DC equal to 8 + misfire score). If your check fails, the weapon is broken and must be mended out of combat using tinker’s tools. Creatures who use a firearm without being proficient increase the weapon’s misfire score by 1.
Ammunition. All firearms require bullets and smokepowder to make an attack. Due to their rare nature, ammunition may be near impos-sible to purchase; however, with the proper tools and materials, a character can craft ammunition. Crafting bullets requires smith’s tools or tinker’s tools. Crafting five bullets requires one day of downtime. The five types of bullets known to work in drow gunslinger pistols are:
Renaissance bullet. The ammunition of a
firearm is destroyed upon use. Renaissance
and modern firearms use bullets.
Silver bullet. This bullet has a silver jacket. Incendiary bullet. This is a hollow bullet filledwith alchemist’s fire (one flask refined with alchemist’s supplies is enough for five bullets). A creature injured by this ammunition takes an additional 2 (1d4) fire damage. On impact, the bullet creates a flash that can ignite highly flammable material.
Venom poisoned bullet. This is a hollow bullet filled with serpent venom (one vial is enough for five bullets). A creature injured by this ammunition takes an additional 11 (2d10) poison damage.
Drow poisoned bullet. This is a hollow bullet filled with drow poison (one vial is enough for five bullets). A creature injured by this ammuni-tion must succeed on a DC 13 Constitution saving throw or be poisoned for 1 hour. If the saving throw fails by 5 or more, the creature is also unconscious while poisoned in this way. The creature wakes up if it takes damage or if another creature takes an action to shake it awake.
As an alternate method of tracking costs for firing a pistol with a lower administrative burden
(similar to spell component costs), material costs per shot effectively equal 10 gp for a standard bullet, 20 gp for a silvered or incendiary bullet, or 50 gp for a poisoned bullet using drow poison or serpent venom. While not discussed, other types of poisoned bullets are possible.
Faction Loot Satchel
Wondrous item, uncommon
The faction loot satchel is a kind of magical being that safeguards the faction’s funds and valuables. Its innards are connected to a secure coffer within your faction, to which the satchel periodically trans-fers faction items. As an action, you can extract a faction perk item from your satchel with a successful DC 15 Dexterity (Sleight of Hand) check. Failure requires the character wait 10 minutes before trying again. The size of the item extracted must be able to fit into a normal-sized chest. Alter-natively, a character may deposit a similarly-sized item, which transfers ownership to the faction.
When the character gains renown rank 2, a second pouch in the satchel materializes and func-tions like a bag of holding.
If this item is lost or destroyed, the character must find a faction representative for a replace-ment. The physical appearance of the satchel is determined by the Dungeon Master.
This is a variant of the living loot satchel found in Acquisitions Incorporated. This item allows for characters to receive faction items regardless of the character’s location.
Rope, Spidersilk (50 feet)
Type: Mundane item Cost: 50 gp Weight: 3 lbs
Made only by sentient giant spiders this rope is sturdier and finer than any other type of rope. This rope has 6 hit points and can be burst with a DC 25 Strength check. It is incredibly supple and slightly adhesive, and thus provides advantage on any Strength or Dexterity checks related to climbing with this rope.
Wondrous item, uncommon
Smokepowder is a magical explosive chiefly used to propel a bullet out of the barrel of a firearm. It is stored in airtight wooden kegs or tiny, water-proof leather packets. A packet contains enough smokepowder for five shots, and a keg holds enough smokepowder for five hundred shots.
If smokepowder is set on fire, dropped, or otherwise handled roughly, it explodes and deals fire damage to each creature or object within 20 feet of it: 1d6 for a packet, 9d6 for a keg. A successful DC 12 Dexterity saving throw halves the damage.
Casting dispel magic on smokepowder renders it permanently inert.
While almost never found for sale, a packet of smokepowder typically costs 50 gp and a keg costs 5,000 gp. A character proficient in alchemist’s supplies can make smokepowder by spending 2 workweeks of downtime. Raw mate-rials includes giant bat guano, among other things.
This ornate dueling rapier is complete with a collection of niches to catch opposing blades. While holding this weapon, you may use your bonus action to make a contested Wisdom
(Insight) check against one creature you can see within 5 feet of you who currently has a weapon in hand.
If successful you may choose to gain advantage on your next attack against the creature or give it disadvantage on the next attack roll it makes against you before the end of its next turn. However, on a failure, the creature may instead choose to gain advantage on its next attack against you or impose disadvantage on your next attack roll against it.
Dust of Wild Magic
Wondrous item, uncommon
The dust of the ground of the Court of the White Bull frequently shifts colors or vibrates, hinting at the erratic and wild magic stored within. You may use an action to throw a handful of wild magic in a 15 foot cone originating from you. Whenever a creature covered in the dust attempts to cast a spell they must roll a d20. On a result of 5 or less, they must roll on the Wild Magic Surge table to create a random magical effect.
Kiss of Steel
Weapon (dagger) rare
This ornate stiletto dagger has the appearance of two androgynous figures entwined with one another leading to a sharp point. When you deal damage with this weapon the target must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or suffer 2d6 poison damage. In addition, their lips begin to swell blood red, and they confer their darkest secret telepathically to you.
As a bonus action, pushing the button tucked into the dagger's hilt casts the disguise self spell targeting you. However, this spell can only change your facial features and clothing over your head (such as a mask, hat, or hood). Once this feature has been used, it cannot be used again until the next dawn.

With the lightning stored, you may expend it to cast the lightning bolt spell (spell DC 15 + your proficiency) as an action. Only one bolt of lightning may be stored inside the shield at one time.

Wondrous item, uncommon
This unassuming silver coin bears the symbol of Tymora on one side and Beshaba on the other. As a bonus action, you may flip the coin in the air in hopes of getting the blessing of Tyche. Roll a d20.

a coiled snake embossed around it. You can command the orb to uncoil into a brass snake approximately 6 feet long and 3 inches thick.

Use the statistics for the constrictor snake, but use armor class 14 and increase the challenge rating to 1/2 (100 XP). The snake can stay animate for up to 5 minutes or until reduced to 0 hit points. Being reduced to 0 hit points causes the snake to revert to orb form and become inert for 1 week.
