You have a knack for making your way in the deep places of the world. You can recall the twists and turns of passageways and tunnels such that you can always retrace your steps underground. You’re also well acquainted with foraging and surviving in the Underdark, and can determine when sources of food and water are safe to consume. You can always find sufficient food and water for yourself and up to five other people in the Underdark, as long as sustenance is available in the area.
You are no casual visitor to the Underdark, but instead have spent considerable time there learning its ways. You are familiar with the various races, civilizations, and settlements of the Underdark, as well as its major routes for travel. If you fail an Intelligence check to recall some piece of Underdark lore, you know a source you can consult for the answer unless the DM rules that the lore is unknown.
Alan;You were once lost in the Underdark, and a group of kuo-toa helped you find your way out. You learned that there are kindly folk even among that otherwise mad race, and remain indebted to them for their aid.
Marc;You once had the opportunity to meet a circle of myconids – the mushroom folk of the Underdark. They offered you shelter and a chance to "meld"using their telepathic spores, and you have yearned ever since to repeat the experience.
Chris; You once worked for Davra Jassur, a Zhentarim “troubleshooter” recruiting promising new talent for the Black Network. She helped you get your start as an adventurer, and you owe her for that.
Camen;You have long had a curious recurring dream about visiting a vaulted stone library in the depths of the Underdark, and becoming lost in the endless lore it holds.
Pro Rock;You studied with a deep gnome alchemist and miner named Kazook Pickshine, who saved your life once when a magical experiment when awry. Last you heard, his family controlled some of the largest mines in the deep gnome settlement of Blindingstone.
Dave;Years ago, you lost your Grand Father and Uncle in a raid by Drow Slavers from the Underdark. They disappeared without a trace, either slain or taken into the depths, and you’ve always wondered whether they might still be alive and held as prisoners.
