The Western Heartlands
It is the Era of Upheaval, the Year of the Deceitful Brother (1519 DR). It is currently the 21th day of Flamerule, midsummer aproaches. A group of adventurers find themselves in the small town of Filwarfin, just south of Berdusk.
A gnome cleric, and a strange elven child enter the villages one inn and, after the innkeepers greets them, they are directed to share a common table with a shifty, quiet rogue, hulking barbarian half-orc, and handsome rugged sorcerer.
