The Darrington Brigade is a non-profit adventuring group operating mostly in Wildemount. Modeled after the more-famous Vox Machina, the group was founded by former Vox Machina adventurer Taryon Darrington.[2]

Founding[edit | edit source]

In exchange for Tary coming back home to his family in Wildemount and helping to recover the Darrington family's financial situation, Tary demanded that the family change its business model. To the common people, the Darringtons are scoundrels and awful people...now penniless awful people. Tary proposed converting the Darrington Estate into a home for the poor and headquarters for a new charitable Darrington Foundation. He also proposed creating a team of adventurers based in Wildemount: the Darrington Brigade.

The mission statement of the Darrington Brigade, according to Tary, is to: "fight for justice, win battles against evil-doers, and spread the Darrington name around the continent."[1]

The Adventures of the Darrington Brigade[edit | edit source]

Main article: The Adventures of the Darrington Brigade.

In 826 PD, after a strange object fell from the sky the previous night, Master Doolan Tversky hired the Darrington Brigade to investigate the Cyrengreen Forest and retrieve the object for her. The Darrington Brigade accomplished the mission and brought Master Tversky a strange, mutagenic crystal for the agreed-upon price of 10,000 gold.[3]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Tary stated that, since the Brigade donates its earnings to the people of Wildemount, members can write off their share as "in-kind donations" for tax purposes.[16]
  • Tary begins calling Hazel his "manager" during "The Adventures of the Darrington Brigade" (OSx35),[17] though his mother is still alive.[18]
