Points of Light: The Splintered Lands
Adventure is everywhere, the world is a fantastic place; both mysterious and dangerous.You are are an adventurer in this world, an exceptional member of your race who will do and see things no ordinary person will.
The world is ancient, created in at the beginning of time by the Gods and Primordials some of whom still exsist in distant planes and whose powers still influence the world today. In this new era of history after the fall of the last great empire, the civilised races have banded together to form small pockets of civilisation in an otherwise hostile world, so called “Points of Light.”
Our adventure begins in Fallcrest, standing amid the Moon Hills at the falls of the Nentir River. Here travellers and traders use the King’s Road that runs north and south, the dwarven Trade Road running east and the river all meet, and so the town hass always been a natural hub for trade. But where there is money and seeming security, there are always the forces of chaos looking to plunder and destroy. A powerful clan of Orcs known as the Blood Spears practically destroyed the town and in the decades that followed the town has just began to recover. Business is only a former shadow of itself, but is growing steadily and the numerous acient sites surrounding this town make it an ideal place for adventurers like yourselves.
