TBD - Tyranny of Dragons
Current Year: 1489 DR
The Sundering represents the separation of the currently ‘overlapping’ worlds of Abeir and Toril (the worlds became ‘overlapped’ as a result of the Spellplague and its aftermath) and an end to the Age of Upheaval.
Around the time of the first Sundering, Elliandreth of Orishaar wrote a prophecy of the second Sundering. The prophecy went as follows:
Some or all of this information would be known to you all prior to investigating the Cult of the Dragon. It may be a reason you started the search…. The choice is up to you how much you want your character to know prior to game and how much you would like to learn / figure out as you play out the game.
- A white dragon plunders caravans heading north to Icewind Dale.
- In the Silver Marches, a scornful red dragon torches a town that refuses to pay a king’s ransom.
- Elsewhere, dragon-worshiping barbarians in Viking longships attack merchant vessels leaving Neverwinter.
- Masked heathens infiltrate a noble villa in Waterdeep, murder its lord, and steal a draconic artifact.
Dragons and their allies are threatening the Sword Coast and the North, but why now, and to what end?
