The World at Large
Carna is in trouble. The Sundering caused unbelievable amounts of damage twenty years ago, changing the landscape and people forever. Chasms opened everywhere leading straight into the Underdark, and while at first only the quickest of monsters flitted into the light, recent years have seen trouble from drow and duergar raids on cities that were lucky enough to not fall straight into a gorge. Some cities have adapted to the new prominence of magic well, such as Aidyndril with its skyscraper-like buildings and astounding arcane architecture, but not all have been so lucky. The city of Cormyr, for example, has not enjoyed the airborne safety of Aidyndril, and has struggled to fight off monsters and enemies for many years. The eladrin who used to reside there in force have largely disappeared, and many wonder what may have happened to them.
