Founded on the edges of the shadowy town of Skullport, the Artist’s Commune leads its life under the watchful gaze of Xanathar. Drawn together by various misfortunes and circumstances, these outsider artists have found a place to call home. A strange, but comforting location, where a modron musician, a halfling earth-shaper and an illithid painter can all gather around a campfire after a hard day’s work of pursuing their art.
In the commune, artists are able to work on their projects with relatively little disturbance, be they visual, musical or utterly insane. Still, despite their outcast conditions, with strange eons even the gazes and interests of the noble and powerful can trickle down far enough, and the artists might find themselves in need of noble adventurers, or cutthroat mercenaries.
The Artist's Commune of Skullport is a supplement that can add that touch of outsider charm to your adventures in Skullport or the Undermountain. It would fit in easily with the recent adventures in Waterdeep, or the Dungeons of the Mad Mage. The commune is also flexible enough to be put on the edges of whatever town or village you’d like to embellish with a stroke of artistic weirdness.
