By late 1491 DR, he joined an adventuring band led by Aym Twinhorn, and began hunting giants in the North.
He grew up absorbing life lessons from his peers, accepting no real responsibility for his crimes. In his view, he was simply redirecting some of society's surplus value towards its most unfortunate members. As he grew up, so did the gang and the complexity of their crimes. They were no longer limited to simple pickpocketing, but rather operated protection rackets and more complex scams aimed at extracting money from a mark over a longer period of time. The gang, now dubbed the "Fire Swords" started claiming territory, and got into skirmishes with other gangs over turf. This is also the point where Rynor began putting his natural charisma to use, learning a thing or two about deception. However, his actions left many innocent people destitute.
Unfortunately, the gang came crashing down as Rynor turned nineteen. During a burglary gone wrong, a noble's son was left bleeding out on the floor and one of the gang was caught in the act. The city watch decided to crack down on the gang, and set out to get rid of them for good. The Fire Swords decided to flee the city with their ill-gotten gains, sneaking out at night. On the night they were to leave, Rynor made a choice.
The Fire Swords walked straight into an ambush by the city watch, killed or captured to a man. As far as the watch was concerned, Rynor had died in the ambush. In reality, he walked straight out of the main gate a free man. He made his way south to Waterdeep, and met a tiefling named Aym Twinhorn. She invited Rynor to join her adventuring band, along with a fighter, a cleric of Loviatar, and a mask-wearing doctor. This band defended the North from roving bands of giants following the breaking of the Ordning, and were rewarded handsomely for it.
Having made a small fortune adventuring, Rynor retired to a townhouse in Waterdeep in early 1493 DR. He began writing fictional stories, creating the world of "Domeris" to set them in. The main character of these stories is Sibylle Luden, a femme fatale rebel leader somewhat based on Rynor's friend Sariel Liadon. However as his money began to run low, he asked Sariel to go adventuring with him in order to bring his finances back in order, so he can properly retire. This is a process that has repeated several times.
Towards Sariel Liadon
Sariel LiadonFriend (Important)
Rynor and Sariel were introduced to each other by their mutual friend Aym Twinhorn in 1493 DR, at a tavern in Waterdeep. They hit off very quickly, bonding over a mutual history adventuring and strong attraction towards each other.
While Sariel's work with the Arrowheads keeps her busy, she finds time to regularly visit Rynor at his townhouse. When Rynor runs low on money, he contacts Sariel to join him adventuring.
Sariel has become the inspiration for the main character of Rynor's "Domeris" series of stories, as the rebel heroine Sybille Luden.
