D&D 5E: Into the Twilight
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Roll20
About the adventure
The Ethereal Realms, a land where magic and technology grow hand-in-hand. Archers finish battles by casting arrows of almighty astral light. Mages blend the celestial and mortal plains into one, allowing themselves and others to travel in-between aboard vessels that defy the laws of gravity. Healers call upon holy words to heal the sick and the wounded, for which there are plenty. Since the Millenia of Dragons ended, the wounded have arrived to healers in droves. Races have fought for territory controlled by one-another in a constant struggle of ideals and expansion for nearly a millennia itself. All land is free for the taking, all people forced to be casualties for the want of the rich and noble...except the land and people of the Twilight Isles. Thou, many did try. Tried sailing through it's waters only to drown within sight of it's shorelines. Tried flying past it's clouds only to be caught in the most ravenous of lightning storms. Oh, many did try, and many did fail all the same. Until nearly ten years ago, when the Mages of Orion carved a portal so powerful it pierced whatever arcane was protecting the Isles. Five mages where the first in hundreds of years to set foot on the dense jungle Island. They would be the last for another five. The Islands themselves, angered with the stubbornness of mortals, reached into the Celestial plains and closed the portal with such ferocity that it exploded the academy in which it was built. No one would hear from the five mages. No one would try. Not for another five years. Then, out of desperation to prove himself to his people, the new King Audwin would order the excavation of the Old Academy. It would take nearly a year itself, but many were shocked to find the portal still standing beneath the rubble of the building. Many more would be amazed when Audwin himself would be the first to step through the portal, and come back alive. Now, through a pact between nations, a party of brave adventurers are to be sent into the Twilight to explore the long lost islands. But be quick, weary explorer, for tensions is brewing and the race to be the first to claim what lies in the Twilight is not far from beginning.
