Balance of Power
The third Hebridonia campaign was played in 2001. It started in Cromdale and ended outside the destroyed Demarian city of Sunai. This campaign is unique in that it takes place 'in the past' in comparison to 'modern Hebridonia' in the year 1022.
From the original background information and introduction:
The adventure starts in Cromdale, a walled city near the gap which leads through the Ardgour Mountains to Demaria. It is also the closest human city to the fighting between the Dwarves and the Demarian empire. Though Hebridonia is officially neutral in the war, thanks to a heavy diplomatic campaign by the Demarians, many in Cromdale sympathize with the plight of the dwarves. The war is not going well for them.
Recently there has been news that the Demarians have taken the underground citadel of Farsonwell, a major trading partner with Cromdale for iron. Some refugees from the citadel made it to Cromdale, while others were driven further underground. Those that escaped speak of horrible attrocities and evil magicks which the Demarian's have wielded in their bloodthirsty quest for dominance.
Each of the PC's know a Kyelsoran merchant named Aethra. At times, each of you has called on her for information or rare items, or possible leads for employment. She is familiar with the type of work the characters do and has asked them to meet her at the Hearty Boar Inn on the 34th day of Orran for dinner, to discuss a business proposition.
