Forgotten Realms: Flip of the Coin OOC
It is the time of the Sundering. The worlds of Abeir and Toril are being ripped one from another, with all the turmoil and anarchy this entails.
Across the realms, war rages as the Shadowvar attempt to conquer everything and everyone in their path, the free nations of the races fighting a desperate battle to keep what they can and hold back the tide for one more day...in the hopes that something...anything...might happen to save them and everything they have ever known from complete annihilation.
The gods have sent forth their Chosen to the farthest corners of the world, attempting to preserve, or defend, or to attain greater power for the coming new era. Powers gather and mighty forces clash, and fate can change in a blink.
Welcome to Waterdeep, the City of Splendors, so far, largely untouched by the struggles of this time. That is about to change, as a Netherese Sky Fortress approaches, vast hordes of shadowvar and legions of shadow mages waiting to drop down into the unsuspecting city from above. An Archmage named Vorseth leads the forces of Nether. His one goal is to conquer or crush the great city at any cost.
While the world we have known may end and the darkness consume all, the now is the time to make our stand, for whatever it may be we believe in or hold dear.
Now is the time for the greatest and smallest of us to seize our destiny.
Let the Tale be Told.
