The Setting

The Company of the Scepter Tower operates in a world where there are very few heroes. Magic went wild 100 years ago and the heroic deeds that once defined Faerun are largely consigned to legend. But nothing stays buried in Faerun, for good or for ill. Here are the Places, Things, and Acquaintances that have helped to define their adventures.

Here are the places the Company or its members have been, roughly in order of scale or current importance.

Here are some other places of great importance or influence that the Company has not yet visited.
