BACKGROUND INFORMATION

It is the year 1359. Just over a month has passed what has been called “The Time of Troubles”, a time when the gods walked Toril (the planet of the setting).

Much chaos and destruction came to the lands during the Time of Troubles, and now the people of the Realms are trying to put things back in order.

In the bustling city of Waterdeep, sections of each of the city’s wards were destroyed, especially in the Dock ward and the central Marketplace.

In the region around Waterdeep and along the Sword Coast there has been much devastation as well.

Small sections of dead magic and wild magic have been left behind, and items of great power from ages past have been uncovered by the destruction left by the gods.

Heroes are needed to protect people and establish safety again.
