The Before

When you were Enthralled, the continent was in an era of peace. Kingdoms lived in harmony with their neighbors, and there was talk of a Great Council possibly forming to oversee the future of Khorvaire and its prosperity. The old wars of past generations still left scars about the landscape. Groups, parties, clans, and individuals may harbor resentments, but the treaties and truces in place throughout the kingdoms ensured civility across the lands.

While the politics and economy of the continent were, on the surface, in good order, there were dark whispers of foul things beginning to seep thru the cracks of this prosperity. Strange monsters had been spotted in what were to be safe territories. Murders, arson, assault, rapes, kidnappings, and all manners of violent and horrible crimes were on the rise. Seemingly sound men and women of logic and faith were showing signs of neuroses and acting strangely… something was making its way into the hearts and minds of Khovaire.

Your time spent in servitude has meant that you have spent the last several years mostly in the Underdark and away from society. How have the kingdoms changed? How are the common folk fairing? How will you survive…?
