Figuring out the answer to this question is a fine way to begin a game and get everyone on the same page at the start of a D&D campaign or a good way to get things moving quickly for a one-shot. A few ideas for patrons, set up as a checklist are on the below sheet.

I like that by checking off one of these choices it gives me inspiration and guidelines for creating future adventures. I know exactly where to go from there and it brings everyone together quickly.
Could I make Blades in the Dark crew-like patron sheets with checklists for easy and fast patron creation? Hm, something to think about.
