Deep in the Shadow Marshes far to the west of the Five Nations life continues much as it has for these last ten centuries. There tribes of orcs and humans wend their way through thousands of miles of fenlands and moors practicing demonic worship and druidic rites as their ancestors have for the last thirty thousand years. The Last War that decimated the Five Nations was hardly noticed in the Marshes, outsiders are only interested in the dragonshard fields along the rivers and most people here prefer to be forgotten by the rest of Khorvaire.
Our adventures have found themselves in the employ of the Chieftain of Scumtown charged with the ignoble task of slaying creatures that prove deadly to the better fed and paid dragonshard hunters. Destiny is not slowed by swamps and fens though and even in the depths of the Shadow Marshes it may yet find these unlikely heroes.
