Where is the main quest? that is a secret.
What is the campaign about? sorry that is a secret too.

All these questions and more must be uncovered.

But while you are trying to figure the main quest out, here are a few things you can do to gain a bit of fame and fortune.

The city sewers are infested with rats again. Many have cleared it over and over. Unfortunately no one has ever found the nest.

The city is offering a bounty(money) for the sewer to be cleared again.

The millers and bakers guild is offering a larger bounty(money and XP) if proof can be presented that the nest has been permanently dealt with.



Reports indicate that it is common to encounter swarms, and over grown rats.
Due to a reduced budget the upkeep on the sewer has lead to flooded and unstable tunnels, with unreliable maps of the network of tunnels.

Nov 27@2359 (MST)...
There was a theft of a series of powerful magic items stolen from a tribe in the deep north. The tribe warns that they need these items back by the time winter sets in.(Nov 27 @2359 (MST))

They offer no reward, and only a dire warning (xp) that failure will be bad for the world, and if enough time passes (24 Dec 2020 @2359) the problem becomes much worse.



Summer in the north has an average high temperature of -10 F.




a massive winter storm has formed far from any known settlements.

A town in the desert has sent out a request for aid. merchants have stopped arriving, but the roads are clear of any threats or obstructions.



desert weather is an exercise in extremes with day time higs in the 100+ and night time temperatures that drop to near 20.

the wind is an much a hazard to your health as it is to your navigation skills.

A powerful lich necromancer has lost control of an experimental undead.

He has offered a reward of an undisclosed amount if it is brought back in a responsive state.

He offers a lesser reward if all it's parts are brought back.

He offers an even more reduced reward if proof of destruction of his creation is presented.

Three nations are on the brink of war.

All three nations have a treaty NOT to use plague warfare.

Each nation claims that they have confirmation of rumors that the other side has been working on plague weapons.

No one has called for outside assistance, nor does any single interested party have the means to fund an inquiry...or the means to guarantee that those being investigated will comply with the investigation.

If war breaks out trade routes in the region would be disrupted.

The rumors of plague warfare are thin and poorly supported, but cause for worry just the same.

a princess has asked for aid.

the princess's father has promised her hand in marriage to the hero that can slay the dragon that has "kidnapped" her.

She has no interest in marrying a random stranger. So the princess, not entirely trusting the dragon is strong enough...requests adventurers to help defend her girlfriend (the dragon) from what the princess describes as murder hobos.

the dragon demands 1 piece of equipment from every creatures that enters her lair as tribute if that creature wishes to enter "peacefully."

This will include defending the dragon on multiple occasions, whenever "Heroes" arrive to "save the princess"

The princess and her girlfriend keep moving to try and stay a step ahead of her father's spies.

The king resides in the city of blackwall, named because of the local stone used to build the city.

Thravencaul economists predict a 2% reduction in overall revenue in the next year. This is likely a result of a reduction of goods bound for the port of Thravencaul from elven lands due to rumors of highly organized raids on trade caravans.

Caravans that do arrive at market claim they were not attacked, and encountered no issues.
