A campaign set in the world of Eberron.
The campaign year is 999YK (the 999th Year since the Kingdom was founded).
Great and evil forces have worked great magic and have destroyed three separate worlds through a forced Gestalt, these planes have ceased to exist, the worlds of Barsaive, Faerun, and Creation are gone now, and their refugees have come to Eberron. Though they are not great in number, a few have managed to traverse the dimensional wall and land in this new plane, their bodies forever altered by their passage through the veil, things that they once knew are now a clouded memory, something chalked up to a bad dream.
But in the years since the War some are being called for something greater. In the harsh wasteland of the Mournland a hero strides, away from the new war the Lord of Blades seeks to start. From the ruined continent of Xen'Drik an ancient construct rises. In the House of Orien the Heir is born, one that shall claim all in its wake. Finally from the Underdark of Khyber one last hero flees.
But Destiny is a fickle mistress, and on the shoulders of these few, others pick up their weapons and move to forge their own way in the world.
- Eberron was created by Keith Baker.
The face of Khorvaire has been changed forever. In the years since the Mourning great and evil powers have gained fragile footholds on the continent. In the forests of the Eldeen Reaches a machine city rises, and in the Talenta Plains, raids by a race of black skinned elves are becoming more and more common. Finally the capital city of Krona Peak has fallen, their depths now the home to hundreds of demons and devils.
The Draconic Prophecy tells of coming darkness, without hope of the inevitable light. All across the world heroes wake to their destinies, heroes that stand against the coming darkness and battle against their own twisted fates. One may fall but another is there to take his place...
- Those touched by fate have found a home through the PBEM game.
- Others stand against the darkness in the PBP game.
- The role of the refugees is mainly played through pen and paper IRL. The idea is meant to enhance the game world not hinder it. It also allows explanation of the existence of some monsters and items in the world. Please do not be dissuaded by the idea of other worlds.
- Players are at level eight currently, and as the campaign progresses will move up and may someday become Epic legends.
