Campaign Timeline

The World We Never Knew begins three generations after the Dawn War, wtih the Gods ekeing out a narrow victory over the Primordials and preventing them from destroying the world. The Planes have been forever changed, as has the world.

Fallcrest, once a bustling city that was a hub of civilization, survived the Dawn War, but it’s now a shadow of its former self. The land has been devestated, leaving buildings in ruins and the town isolated from other points of light. Indeed, it’s as if drought, famine, plague and worse are conspiring to lay Fallcrest low. Each season brings new hardships and the farmers and fishermen struggle to survive these harsh times.

The townsfolk have struggled for survival for so long now, that much of the way things once were has been forgotten. But now, Fallcrest is on the knife’s edge – the point between oblivion and salvation. People are asking questions – What happened to Fallcrest? What event of the Dawn War ravaged the lands and city of Fallcrest? And most importantly, can Fallcrest be restored to glory?

Chapter 3: Of Prayers and Miracles



Prayer is a form of religious practice that seeks to activate a volitional connection to a goddess through deliberate practice. A Miracle is thought of as a perceptible interruption of the laws of nature.

The question then becomes, when that prayer is to the Raven Queen, neutral goddess of death, will that Miracle bring salvation to her worshippers as life still lived, or is the Miracle the loss of life in mass numbers…

Finally back in town after a brutal couple weeks of travel. I don’t really think the encounter with the gnolls could have ended better.

We have returned to Fallcrest with our rescued slaves. Only now does the enormity of our situation sink in.

Kill 'em all and let the Raven Queen sort 'em out.

2010/11/09 Chapter 3 session 1.

So much to get done here in town. I need to notify dad about the impending attack by the Gnoll horde. Melzam needs to be notified of these events, maybe he and Liria can muster a few more bodies to throw in front of the advancing vermin.

Chapter 2: The Butcher’s Brood



It’s like removing a hyena from a pit… Meru Proverb

(This Meru proverb recalls how a man once met a hyena that had fallen into a pit. When the hyena saw him above, he pleaded to be helped out. The man was moved in his heart as he felt pity for it. He ascended into the pit to get the hyena out of it and upon reaching the bottom of the very deep pit, the hyena told him: “I thank you for your good offer, but just before you assist me in getting out of this deep pit, you should know that I am very hungry as I have been here for many days. Therefore, I demand that you give me either one of your legs or arms to eat.” The man realized that he was in danger and was very much afraid, but cleverly said: “No problem, I have left a fat, juicy gazelle at the top of the hole, and I can easily reach for it while stepping on your back.” He quickly stepped on the hyena’s back and craftily climbed out of the pit leaving the hyena there alone. Hence, the proverb is directed to people who are never grateful for the good deeds done to them, and who create enmity instead.)
