The world is quiet. There are no major wars, no political trickery, no demons, no demi-god rebellions, no evil liches trying to kill every living thing in the world. All of these things have happened in the past, and likely they will happen again. But for now, the world is safe. For a number of decades, The cities of the world have been prosperous, peaceful, and productive.
There are however, odd jobs in the world of Brea’Tac. One in particular is the dealing with a small dragon terrorizing the City of Neverwinter. It isnt a huge deal, but the city cant spare the forces to go after this dragon, so the call has gone out for adventurers.
5 Adventurers showed up to answer the call, as well as many others, and this group of 5 was sent on a mission to collect the arch-mage of Neverwinter, Doria Veledarr from the nearby town of Swampmarsh. The house she has been renting is empty, and after investigation, many others have been too, as it turns out. The adventuring group heads down deep underground, and stops the harvesting of villagers that has been going on in Swampmarsh to create an undead force. With this harvest ended, and Doria rescued, they all headed back to the city.
The adventuring company arrives in the city, and head to the tavern for the evening of drinking and storytelling. They meet another mysterious character, and while conversing, screams erupt from the courtyard and the group is thrown into a fight with this strange wizard/mage looking creature with tattered robes, and a number of demonic beings hobbling around and they dispatch them. The next morning, the city has been burned and many buildings dystroyed. They find Doria, and she has sent them to the town of Tristram, to the east. The harvest was in its final stages, and the attack on one of their “farms” has caused a need to act, and the corrupted corpses are begging to assault dozens of towns in the surrounding woods…
