From the introduction:
In the universe of Dungeons and Dragons, mighty adventurers frolic about the countryside, saving people from cultists and defeating ancient, powerful beasts thought only to exist in myth and legend. Tales of their actions are told far and wide, shared by many a tavern dweller who delight those around them with stories of these great heroes and the glorious deeds they have done.
But how did they get to that point? Usually, adventurers are already grown and capable when they set out on their heroic crusades. Old enough to know better, some would say, yet also young enough that they don’t wish to settle down just yet. Adventurers rarely leave ties behind them, having little to no family and if they do, they are put in the background to be forgotten as the adventurer dives into yet another trap-ridden dungeon.
This book will explore a lesser known group of heroes. Heroes who have not grown to greatness and whose deeds are not yet tales told around a campfire. These little heroes might stumble onto the path of an already existing group of adventurers, following them as they carve their way into history, or they may have their curiosity get the better of them and go explore the forgotten crevasses of a haunted house.
Or perhaps they are sitting at your table, eagerly waiting for their story to begin.
