For 1200 years the land of Arrak was a haven of peace and prosperity. This was the result of a once in a century event, the passing of a comet called Pelor's Light through the celestial plane. The comet blessed crops, healed the sick, and kept monsters in a magical sleep. However, on the 1300th year of the passing of Pelor's Light, the comet suddenly and mysteriously exploded, with the shattered pieces falling to the ground causing great destruction. This also awakened the monsters which had lay dormant and they once again began bringing chaos to the land. This event was called the Lightfall.
The adventure takes place in Arrak 46 years after the Lightfall. We join our adventurers travelling as part of a caravan from the town of Greybell to Capital of the Dawn Republic.
