Welcome to a campaign of endless adventure, where strong steel, steady nerves, or a magical spell is all that is necessary for a humble peasant to become a mighty hero. This campaign is designed in the spirit of the golden age of fantasy role-playing, when wonder, excitement, and plain old fun were always just around the corner. Wits, courage, and a small amount of luck are all that stand between victory and defeat. Though the campaign focuses on combat, it is by no means a mindless series of battles. Cunning players will find encounters that reward ingenuity, planning, and good tactics. Those who rush forward without thought will soon find themselves generating a new character.
A fantasy world of high adventure with four major geographic areas surrounding a central sea and the deities worshiped in the lands.
Be regaled with the stories of the various brave, foolhardy, greedy, and opportunistic adventurers of Aereth as they face constant peril.
