Coils of Madness
The year is 1491 DR and trouble is brewing. Across the reaches of the Sword Coast things stir and rise. Giants, Dragons and strange cults move on the surface and deep below in the caverns of the under dark rumors surface of demonic uprisings. Even the shining jewel of the sword coast, Waterdeep is not beyond the machinations of evil.
To hold the evil at bay many of the most powerful gather, working in small cabals or secret orders to do what they can to halt the coming tide of darkness and to uncover who or what is behind the change in the status quo.
One of these orders is the Harpers, a group to which many of you belong. A group dedicated to the use of information and magic for the good of all. It is because of this that you have been sent to aid those of this area, to defend your homes, to push back the giants, dragons and other fiends, and most important of all to unravel the Coils of Madness that drives this rising darkness.
