About the adventure

πŸ‘‘ The God King, Vecna, and his corrupted followers rule the world πŸ’€ Resurrected after the climactic battle two centuries before, you are chosen to help spark the next Revolution πŸ’ͺ Strengthen the cause by recruiting, training, and equipping your soldiers and followers βš”οΈ Wage a secret war against all odds to defeat the diabolical agents of the Whispered One; including Cultists, Wights, Death Knights and Liches. The Gods were dead. Betrayed and slaughtered by one of their own; Vecna, the Whispered One, God of undeath, secrets, and shadow. The Divine Realm fell from the sky, its radiant shards crashing into the world like vengeful falling stars. The resulting explosion echoed through the Multiverse and rent the fabric of reality, allowing corrupt magic to undermine the world's natural order. Since then prayers failed, a mysterious Blight infested the forests, the skies blackened and oceans boiled. If any Gods remained in this corpse of a world, they ignored the desperate pleas of their subjects. The Whispered One used his power over undeath to sweep the lands clean of all violent resistance as his hand-picked followers took positions of power in the remaining Nations and Kingdoms. Two hundred years of subjugation have ravaged the old Kingdoms of Erebos, where the great battle that would decide the fate of all was waged...and lost. Now, the lights of civilization are going out. Swells of refugees have taken to the roads, desperate to find homes far from all the suffering. Creatures of long-forgotten folklore once again stalk the countryside. It is a time of ill omens and unlikely heroes.
