From the high mountains, to the deep depths of the Underdark. From the silvery, gossamer oceans of the Astral Sea to the swirling fire, water, earth, wind, light and sound of the Elemental Chaos, there are creatures who adventure that are the monsters they slay. These savage heroes travel the world looking to advance their kin's ideal of the world, to escape their brethrens wrath, or simply travel the world with no mind for either their race or others.
