About the adventure

The world has ended, and it’s ending again. Three hundred years ago, the Cataclysm brought ruin to the world of Krynn. In a single day, an age of wonders came to an end. Countless innocents died, the face of the world was reshaped, and the gods themselves faded into legend. Through ages of struggle, the peoples of Krynn survived, but the world isn’t what it was. Those nations that remain linger in the shadows of their ancestors’ wonders. Only slowly have they begun to push back centuries of darkness and rediscover how the world has changed. Then came the Dragon Armies, legions of soldiers devoted to the wicked god Takhisis the Dragon Queen, and the world faces ruin once more. The War of the Lance has begun, and in a conflict between gods and dragons, a wounded world hangs in the balance. An army carrying the banner of Takhisis the Dragon Queen marches to war, its ranks filled with monstrous, dragon-like beings that revel in destruction. This Dragon Army now encroaches on Solamnia, where its agents already strike beyond the nation’s borders, and several farms and garrisons have been sacked. However, you dear adventurers are on you way to see an old friend. Dear friend, I am Becklin Uth Viharin. I’ve heard much about you from our mutual friend, Ispin Greenshield. It grieves me to share the news that our dear friend Ispin passed away peacefully here at his home in Vogler. May fortune and the old gods protect his soul. Ispin’s friends are holding a memorial for him in the manner he always wanted. It will take place here in Vogler on the eve of the Kingfisher Festival. I write to ask you to do Ispin one last honor and attend. Should you come, accommodations will be available at the Brass Crab. Though the circumstances are sad, I am eager to meet you and, through our memories, to revel in the life of our great friend. Becklin Uth Viharin Knight of the Crown

How will character creation work

Due to the extensive nature of character creation and setup, our session 0 will be conducted one day prior to the official start of the game. During this session, we will allocate ample time to roll for stats and equipment for characters. However, beyond these initial considerations, the direction and development of your character will be entirely in your hands. Moreover, backgrounds will play a pivotal role in shaping the narrative and character progression. Upon creation, each character will be assigned to one of the prestigious factions such as the Order of the White Robes, Knights of the Crown, or Knights of the Rose. These faction affiliations will hold significant relevance and influence as the story unfolds, contributing to the depth and immersive experience of the game.
