An adventure for starting characters by Chris Pramas
The emperor’s death and the subsequent collapse of the Empire loosed rampaging bands of orcs into the Empire’s provinces. While many of these orcs seek the freedom long denied to them, others see opportunity for vengeance, wealth, and power. In this adventure, a band of orc slavers has moved into the Northern Reach, plundering frontier towns for slaves to sell or use for sport. When the adventure opens, the characters are among the captives, marching toward a life in chains. The adventure ends when the characters escape captivity and reach one of the few outposts of civilization on the frontier.
