The Lost Continent
Heroes are born through a tempering process from the hottest forges and grittiest steel. They appear throughout history at times where all of humanity stands upon a crossroads. The actions of few often write the history of many.
You are heroes, destined to build or crumble the future of nations. Do not take this responsibility lightly, for each grain of sand through your calloused fingers spells doom for generations to come.
Yet, throughout history few heroes have stood alone. Instead, they are joined by brothers-in-arms, feared Valkyrie, and faithful servants. It is this synergy between the faithful that springboards powerful individuals into the Halls of the Chosen.
The party will begin in the village of Tempest. It is a small village, composed of only a few hundred households with limited exposure to the world at large. The party will be a collection of the local heroes and any traveling companions. The local heroes will have lived in Tempest for any amount of time and will have spent time alongside each other on the battlefield.
While not all details will be known to all players, those who have lived in Tempest will have an understanding of each other’s strengths and weaknesses. Those who are just joining the party will be asked to join the group by the town Elders. The details of how, when, and why will only be known to the player and the DM. What they choose to share in play is their choice.
There are some restrictions on character creation listed below. These restrictions represent the separation of Tempest from the majority of the world and the limitations of a small population.
