Obsidian Bay circa CY 515

Ken's lunchtime campaign, in the same time period as the Obsidian Frontier Campaign, but with different players and a different cast of characters.

Overview

It is the Common Year 515 and the Poor March is a broken land. Its smashed defenses are now overrun by hordes of orcs and goblins, infested with monsters, and teeming with threats arcane and mundane.

Hope has fled the peninsula, but vengeance has returned to take its place. The Griffins Guild, an adventuring guild once of the Free City of Irongate in Onnwall, left their comfortable home to establish a beachhead on the Poor March.

The result of their good work is the city of Obsidian Bay, a small town of 3,500 people that contains an contentious mix of adventurers, mercenaries, tradespeople, and refuges.

Our heroes are the latest immigrants to Obsidian Bay. Some seek fortune, others freedom, still others to embrace a doomed destiny. All must find some way to survive in a land where the light of civilization has gone out.
