Ruins of Adventure
Rosko grew up on the streets of Waterdeep, and his abiding goal in life is never to live on streets of any kind again. He met Dak during a tavern brawl gone horribly wrong, and the two quickly discovered that they had complementary abilities: Dak’s strength and ambition and Rosko’s quick mind and dexterity. The two gradually worked their way south (Rosko had vague ideas of “setting up a farm somewhere in the Dalelands”) engaging in adventuring and minor theft to pay their way.
It was Rosko’s idea to sneak aboard the “bride ship” from Melvaunt to Phlan, a fact that Dak never lets him forget.
