Welcome to Adventuring in Erde!
After a long, dark era – the Age of the Winter Dark – spring has come to Erde.
The heroes of the Winter Dark age – St. Luther, Jaren Falkynjagger, Daladon Lothian, and the dwarf lord Dolgan – banded together and finally banished Unklar the Devil-Lord back from the plane of Erde. The great empire of Unklar, famous for it’s thriving legal system, law and order, and cruelty, splintered into dozens of fragments. Charismatic lords, wealthy merchants, new-born religious orders, and mortals-turned-gods all founded their own kingdoms. The legacies of Unklar, both good and evil, were forgotten by most, and the people of Erde stumbled into the next era.
The rosy future soon turned bleak and foreboding. Ancient rivalries were rediscovered, new struggles began, and new heroes were needed. The adherents of Unklar are unseen but still deadly, struggling to reopen the Paths of Umbra and summoning Unklar back to the plane. Acolytes of other, ancient evils are looking to return from their banishment at the hands of Unklar. New religions are struggling to capture followers. Trade wars loom between the countries.
The lands of Erde have traded strict order for uncertain freedom, gained choice at the expense of safety, and lost peace while gaining nationalist tensions. Heroes are once again needed, not for grand glory, but for images of glory for the disheartening populace to cling to amongst the chaos.
