The Dickinsons is a least important family of merchants and caravaneers, very old and somewhat known in Nordale. Bringing to Lower Noble class long time ago, after smuggling supplies into a castle under siege. This fact alone twisted the plot of the war and made the castle resist and repeal the enemies. However, the Dickinson were never rich, lived through the ages doing humbles bussiness.
Bruce and Alana Dickinson were the owners of Le Dickinsons Transportation and Trade Corporation, organizing caravans and transport bussiness in Nordale region, doing trades and commission jobs eventualy. But, those times were not economically eficients for the Company and a series of unfortunate events put the bussiness in danger of bankrupt and the title of Nobles in question. Having ten children do not help at all.
Both parents decided then put the offspring in the market, to lesser the costs of the house and to try recover the economical healthy of the family. Holding only the two oldest sons to heir the bussiness, all the others were sent to elsewhere.
Yrvana, Dalscina and Gimbleniti were excelsior with numbers and accounting, so they were sent to 3 nobles families as Coin's Master apprendices. Some debt with those families were paid with this, and children will have a brilliant future.
Bibbfi and Nerbflin were less intelect and more phisical, so they were sent to become squire of some belligerant families, recieve training, food, shelter to the age of becoming warriors and after pay themselves for this will have good salaries as man-in-arms.
Golfrovrile and Kylsciri became faithfull thralls of gods and acolites.
And there was Mance. Mance was the tenth son. The options for Bruce and Alana were running low. So the fate smile upon them, a member of Nordale's Academy saw a potential in the kid and decided to took him to study among the academics. Bruce recieve and valorous amount of money, which ultimaly get off them from the bankrupt danger. And as side effect, give to the children a good and profitable future.
Mance, short for Mancemiltetiti, was more skilled with words than magic itself. Eriol, who was the Bard Recruiter (the one who search for new members), soon saw a potential for bardic practice. And, dam, he was good.
The young Gnome rapidly evolve in arts of oratory and roleplay. It was known as excellent Dungeon Master between the nerds in the Academy. This association was object of harass and bullying from the students of advanced magic, mainly a group entitled themselves as High Elves.
The High Elves were wizards in formation, that used to overestimate themselves and their arts. Mance decided react. he gathered Shank, a gnome summoner, and Bronn, a human "magus", and working togheter end to discover that the High Elves were using the alchemical laboratories to craft illegal drugs, exposing it to the High Elves. After this, the High Elves, suprised, let the bullying aside.
Mance dicover that Bronn was not a really Magus, he do not have any magical hability at all, he simply was trainning martial between Magus and he will fial at final tests because it. Mance and Shank helped Bronn to cheat the lasts magics tests, doing some minor effects using Prestidigitation and Magic Hand to emulate Magus habilities, while Bronn use brute force to overcome the challenges.
Graduated, they left for their share of aventures.
