In the Wake of the Storm

A Dungeons & Dragons 5e game In the world of Rivendom
| Full
The winds of change are blowing across the storm-scarred landscape of the Pāll-tanír. Spirits, the likes of which have not been seen in millennia since the fall of tyranny in the region, ride again upon the billowing desert storms that scour the shifting dunes.   The soil of this desert continent, long-soaked in the blood of freedom fighters, conquerors, and rebels, is now steeped in the oil-slick tar of intrigue. A conspiracy to kill the caliph of Tan'Ayya and the caliph of Madras to plunge the region into chaos is afoot.   Within the ranks of the criminal organization known as the Hooded Eye, perhaps the only line of defense that stands now between order and anarchy, a civil war brews between those who enjoy the status quo, and those who would like to see ancient, more savage ways restored.   Storm clouds gather on the horizon, adventurer. Though mighty, the Dominion's efforts to broker peace and maintain stability are stunted by the ferocious gales of the arventir.   And while the little men play their games of kings and pawns, greater threats loom over the shifting sands, watching, waiting, and biding their time among the high mountain peaks.
