About the adventure
The Village of Eastpak This is a 1st Edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons game. It is a sandbox style adventure that utilizes the Players Handbook, Unearthed Arcana, and some of the Dragon Magazines for its base rules. This is the story of a fledgling group of adventurers who are just starting out and are feeling their way towards real adventure. Everyone will be starting out as the equivalent of Horseman and will be climbing their way to glory from there. The character creation part will start with a character funnel. All the players will be given pregenerated characters and whichever of their characters live are the ones that they can choose to play. This is a cooperative adventure of good minded souls who have decided to band together to help the village they grew up in overcome some recent troubles. The village of Eastpak before the Midian war was a simple and safe place to live. For most of the Midian war Eastpak was kept safe by the town of Ged and its Mage tower, soldiers and impressive walls. They stood opposed to the combined humanoid hordes for almost a decade as leader after humanoid leader continued to rally the green skins against the peoples of Free Gurn. It was only when the Hobgoblin King Krangtooth was able to use his Stone fury catapults and Trebuchets to topple Ged’s wall this is when the village of Eastpak began its time of troubles. King Krangtooth was able to quickly conquer the meadows of the Midvale in less than a year and laid siege on the town of Sed. In the space of less than a year the town of Sed fell to the green skins lead by the crafty hobgoblin king. The king began to settle his power into the city of Sed to keep it as a home for the hobgoblins. And this lasted for about 6 years. It had begun to look like the king was not going to be wrested from his throne until one day some of his flesh fell from his face revealing a bony hideous face underneath. And then it was clear that he had been given gifts by the Kingdom of Baethea to help stir trouble in the free peoples of Gurn kingdoms. The Northern Orcs were the first to throw off the leadership of the Hobgoblin King and rebelled against the King. The free peoples seeing this banded together. King Adon Silverhawk of Couatl Island formed an alliance with King Nimmist Blueram of the snow elves, and Prince Asprin Dextril of the Rangers and was able to push the humanoids out of Sed and cleared the path of the Mid Vale and cleared Ged of all the humanoids. It is now one year later and the first harvests are in after the war. But Eastpak is no longer a safe place. You and your friends have chosen to settle here because there is work and adventurers are needed everywhere. The work to clear the Mid Vale from the decade long of humanoids setting up lairs to make it safe again is steady and the pay is good. You did not have a lot of skills but you just know you can make a difference and can do some good while getting ahead. What lies for you in the wilds near Eastpak?
