Heroes of the Dark

The Briefing

Artisans and craftspeople from all over the Moonsea have been called in to put their skills to work in the rebuilding. Sculptors, painters, landscapers, and other specialized professions are in especially high demand. Anyone with just about any kind of skill can make good money in Phlan.

Despite this progress, much of Phlan still lies in ruins. Part of the reason for this is that new lairs and secret chambers are discovered every so often, and some still contain monstrosities.and fortunes. Most workers are unwilling to risk the horrors of what may lurk below, even when promised part of whatever riches may also be there.

Many of these workmen demand protection before they will report to the construction sites, and the Council of Ten is willing to hire reputable adventurers as well as beginners to help with guard duties and scouting.

Looting the ruins is not illegal. In fact, people are encouraged to go into the ruins and look around, as long as they report what they see to the Council of Ten. Those who fail to comply are put to work in the rubble-clearing crews.

1340, Dale Reckoning

It is the Year of the Lion.

The Battle of the River Rising has just ended outside Featherdale, and the wizard Mhzentul, lost in the fighting, has just been laid to rest.  Thieves have raided his holdings, braving traps and summoned beings for hopes of uncovering the fate of what history has come to call the Seven Lost Rings of Mhzentul.

Meanwhile an unassuming band of adventurers have been summoned to nearby Phlan, in search of a very different lost treasure, the Baneblades of Demron, fabulous lost treasures of Myth Drannor whose whereabouts and even history have been sought for a thousand years.
