Prologue

It is the three days before Midsummer, in the month of Flamerule. The year is 1372 DR and there is conflict among all of Faerun. A large aspect of the widespread violence around Faerun are the Drow. Many Drow sightings have occurred on the surface of Faerun, specifically in Anauroch, where the long lost city of Shade has reappeared after many centuries. Peigeiron the Paladinson, open lord of Waterdeep, has invited all of the major clans and houses of Faerun to attend and join an event that he has created. He is calling the event The Waterdeep Amateur Battle-Royale. The event is a thirty two contestant tournament that will feature talented amateur fighters from all over Faerun, and is set to begin on the day of Midsummer. Peigeiron’s hope is that conflict can be set aside to enjoy the festival of Midsummer and the sport of battle. As stated before, this campaign will start three days before Midsummer. All of the people registering for The Waterdeep Amateur Battle-Royale will primarily be arriving on this day. Many members from known houses and clans, as well as people from unkown houses and clans, will be registering. Out of the hundreds of people that register, only thirty two contestants will be able to compete for the prize. The PC characters that we will focus on, in this campaign, are Louanna Belle, Parrish Abraham, Juppar Villbrush, and Qodev Root. Each of them has a very different background, and a very different story. It may seam like they are registering for very different reasons, but they all wish to prove themselves in some way. Some for honor, some for truth, and some for battle.
