The Kingdoms Riven Campaign Setting details a world trying to recover from self-imposed magical devastation. The discovering of spells of massive destructive power became too much for madmen crazed with dreams of conquest, and to their eternal shame they used these great weapons on one another, hundreds of thousands of innocents dying in storms of energy, fire and even acid.
The loss of life was not the end of their folly; Whether part of some grand evil scheme or not, the simultaneous casting of such powerful spells weakened the dimensional walls enough for demons to surge through. For a year and a day, they rampaged across the continent of Narrathia, inflicting chaos and misery to a civilisation already brought to its knees.
Sixty years have passed and those few settlements and towns that survived still cling on in the hope of a brighter tomorrow. Civilisation is on a tipping point, the effort of a group of brave heroes would be all it would take to start reclaiming what has been lost.
Designed to be used with the Kingdoms Riven Player's Handbook, the Kingdoms Riven Campaign Setting is over 150 pages long with full colour rendered artwork. From the dwarven stronghold of Vurniken, across the magically wounded Wastelands onto the domain of Varrakus the lich, the Kingdoms Rivens is a classic, low-magic campaign setting that is perfect to spin off your own adventures and campaigns from!
