The Rise of the Runelords
Scarred by the depravity of ancient wizards and reclaimed by a wilderness of beasts and savages, only in the past few hundred years have the steps of civilized men again trod the wondrous and mysterious lands of Varisia.
It’s in these ancient and treacherous lands that your character will take up arms against the return of a centuries-old evil. Yet, before you dive headlong into your adventures, there are things you must know. This guide seeks to prepare you for your quest, supplying you with information about Varisia: an introduction to the varied people that call the land home, a primer to the unique skills and tools you’re likely to encounter, and that extra edge that just might mean the difference between heroic triumph and an ignominious end.
