Starting a new Acq Inc Campaign

Eric the PrezEric the Prez Registered User regular
I am going to start an Acq Inc campaign and just bought the monster manual, DM and Character guide and Acq Inc guide. I've only ever DM'd once before. I have so many questions and any guidance would be helpful
Imagine if you will, a dark C-Team. Thoughts on a Dran Ent. campaign?
If I make a Walnut daughter Dryad, would they have her last name?
What would be the best book for Drow creation? The character book only has so much info.

    First off, good luck and have fun! Last year my wife tried her hand at DMing (over Zoom, of course) for the first time with the adventure in the Acquisitions Inc. guide; she loves it and the game is still going strong. I bet you’ll love it too!

    As to your questions:
    • There’s definitely potential there, though I don’t know if Dran Enterprises campaign would necessarily be any darker than a regular Acq. Inc. game. After all, Acq. Inc. aren’t really “the good guys” so much as “a pyramid scheme that happens to have ensnared some good (and some not-so-good) people.” It’s all soulless corporate shenanigans, no matter which side of the line you’re on.
    • If memory serves, Walnut typically lets her children—whatever their forms—choose their own names. So then the question is, does this dryad understand how surnames work, and do they idolize Walnut enough to want to share her name?
    • Well the Player’s Handbook has everything you need to make a drow, but Xanathar’s Guide to Everything has one or two racial feats for them (as it does for every other Player’s Handbook race). If you’re looking for flavor inspiration (rather than mechanics) and info about the Underdark, you could check out Out of the Abyss, an adventure module that takes place there, or some Underdark source books from previous editions of D&D (I think 4th edition’s was just called Underdark).
