The Edge of Empire
The Spellplague was a cosmic cataclysm of wild magic that happened 100 years ago. No one knows the cause. It destroyed entire races and continents, and brought others to Faerun. Entire worlds shifted. Millions died. The storm’s remnants still crackle in the land, turning some places and people strange and dangerous with uncontrolled magic power.
Some cities that once thrived as trade centers are now quiet and desperate. Some strong civilizations have broken into ruined city-states. Some old alliances that kept the enemies of civilization at bay are no longer. Even some deities that formed the pillars of polite society have faded into obscurity. The heroes that once protected Faerun are the stuff of stories now.
