Tribute of Roses
What is peace when it is only licking your wounds. Hoping you have the strength to slice your enemy's throat out before he can do the same? Peace was hard won on Khorvaire, and only exists because no one has the strength left to fight. But that is changing. The winds of war once again filter through the scarcely healed hills. But to whose tune do the drums beat? Is it for the common man who wants only the safety of a roof over his head and the comforts of a meal in his gut? Is it for the lords who seek security and power? Is it for the marked who rule their houses with enigmatic autonomy? Or are there players who have yet to step from the shadows? There are few who dare to ask such things, and few who dare seek answers where they may be found.
Welcome to Eberon. One of the many settings in the game of Dungeons and Dragons. If you have ever wanted to play a mighty warrior of powerful wizard and still keep an element of luck and chance (not to mention having a good chuckle behind your friends' back as you screw up royally.. or is that screw with royalty?) then the dice rolling ways of DnD might offer you something its hard to achieve with freeform roleplays.
This adventure is set in Eberon, on the continent of Khorvaire, which is only now recovering from a war that saw the empire than once spanned from one side of the continent to the other shattered into feuding states (and one country destroyed entirely - only mists and ruins remain!), and although there is peace for now all five kingdoms are prepairing for the inevitable return of bloodshed.
In Eberon you can expect mystery, intrigue and cinematic pulp style action. Want to play a fantasy Indiana Jones? Want to fight fire mages inside active volcanoes or cross swords on rain-slicked sky bridges between two skyscrapers? Eberon is the place to do it.
