The Red Hand of Doom
Welcome to The Red Hand of Doom:
This will be the electronic hub for our Campaign
Here is the link to the Front page of the wiki which contains all the details of places, people, etc.
We will be playing in the Elsir Vale, which is set in a nondescript D & D word.
My Dearest Lord Jarmaath,
Recently my Ponies came across an emaciated merchant who had gotten lost in the Wyrmsmoke Mountains. He told quite the tale to us:
The Wyrmsmoke Mountains shook with the thunder of ten thousand screaming hobgoblin soldiers. From the phalanx emerged a single champion. One by one the tribes fell silent as the warlord rose up. A hundred bright yellow banners stood beneath him, each marked with a great red hand. He stood upon a precipice and raised his arms.
“I am Azarr Kul, Son of the Dragon!”, the warlord bellowed.
“Hear me! Tomorrow we march to war!”
The warriors roared their approval, stamping their feet and clashing spear with shield. Azarr Kul waited, holding his hands aloft until they quieted again.
“The warpriests of the Doom Hand have shown us the way! They have taught us honor, discipline, obedience – and strength! No more will we waste our blood fighting each other. We will take the lands of the elf, the dwarf, and the human, and make them ours! Under the banner of the Red Hand of Doom we march to victory and conquest! Remember that you stood here this night, warriors of Kulkor Zhul! For a hundred generations your sons and your sons’ sons will sing of the blood spilled by your swords and the glory in the nights to come! Come, my brothers – TO WAR!”
On that one day – for but a brief moment – the ground below the entirety of the burning hills trembled, unable to contain the shout the legions of the Kulkor Zhul gave in answer to their warlord’s call.
This does not bode well for trade along the dawn way, or even the safety of our customers in the vale. I suggest that the cities of the Vale look into this.
