Content of the article: "I need your help and clever tips to help sow discord and chaos"
Hello guys, I turn to my brilliant brothers and sisters of Reddit in need of clever advice – I am starting a campaign today and the setting is placed in a massive city torn by several factions, races and guilds competing eachother for resources and power. The character's goal is to destroy this system from within – My GM is an incredibly smart individual and I am aware he will not be lenient on me while I attempt to achieve such a task.
Therefore I turn to you, the reader and I ask for advice and ideas on how I should go about it.The character starts as musician in an inn, he has lived in this city his entire life – this was his plan since youth because his family was directly killed because of these faction-conflicts. He waited for the right moment. He starts with 2 contacts (A forger whose a dear friend of his) and another forced contact, a low-ranking individual he is blackmailing that is a member of one of the guilds/factions.
He started as a musician because that will enable him to be at certain places and listen to certain individuals without looking suspicious, later on perhaps joining as a part of a musical display in an important individual's house – essentially granting him access to places he wouldn't otherwise be able to reach.
How would you suggest I should go about it? The goal is to sow discord and conflict whilst attracting as little attention to myself as possible until the time is ripe.
The character is a rogue, we play 5E homebrew.
Main goals are to climb ranks and status within the city and break the factions from within.
He specializes in deception, has something alike to disguise kit, and is familiar with the two most spoken Languages in that world – Common and Elven. Any suggestions or intricate plans or clever idaes are so very welcome and appreciate! Thank you all.
Here's some example questions:
How should I start pitting the factions and guilds against one another?
How do I gain trust and climb the ranks within one (or more) factions?
What kind of sources of information do I need to be able to manipulate this chess game effectively and how do I get them?
How do I keep low profile until I believe I am strong/established enough to reveal my identity and when is that stage?
Any expansions would be greatly appreciated!

- How to get my players to be more proactive in game ?
- It is NOT the GM’s job to motivate the PCs. Use SMART goals when building characters.
