The Ossindrillon is an ancient place, and your players’ characters are not the first band of heroes to gain wealth and glory within. Centuries ago, just as Mor Aldenn was founded, a group of adventurers called the Exalted Champions rose to fame by plundering—and later killing—the dreaded dragon Taraathalorm Wyrmmother. History remembers the Exalted Champions as great heroes, but they were people with foibles and eccentricities just like the PCs in your own campaign.
This adventure path pits your PCs against Taraathalorm Wyrmmother, a green dragon long dead but clinging to the world as a vengeful ghost. The Wyrmmother has engendered a brutal but secretive cult of miscreants and monsters. This cult seeks to empower their mistress with god-like power, and your PCs are destined to stop this from occurring. In order to do so, your PCs will receive aid from the Exalted Champions that defeated the Wyrmmother centuries ago, in the form of magical items once wielded by the Exalted Champions themselves.
The setting for this adventure path is described in the Mor Aldenn Setting Guide. You are encouraged to familiarize yourself with the entire Setting Guide, but particularly the overview of Taraathalorm Wyrmmother and the Cult of the Wyrmmother on pages 118-120 of the Mor Aldenn Setting Guide. The cult’s actions—particularly its machinations to elevate the Wyrmmother—provide much of the conflict in the Viridian Legacy adventure path.
The true history and personalities of the Exalted Champions have been mostly forgotten, and so are not presented in the Mor Aldenn Setting Guide—to most Aldennians, the Exalted Champions are merely mythologized heroes. Because the Exalted Champions play such a large role in the Viridian Legacy adventure path—in personality if not in person—this Viridian Legacy GameMaster's Guide presents the Exalted Champions in detail.
The GameMaster's Guide is 23 pages and written by Ron Lundeen, with additional information by David Nicholas Ross (corrigan). Artwork by Richard Chaplin, Justin Hernandez, Andrew Law and Carlos Torreblanca.
