Rise of the Dreamer
Khorva’s peak is a mostly-dormant volcano said to be the final resting place of the dragon Khorva, who swept the land clean thousands of years ago and paved the way for human settlement of the continent. The mountain is titanic, and home to a warren of tunnels and caves, enough to house the entire population of Alam in the case of crisis. Since there has never been a crisis of that sort, the underground has filled with monsters and villains taking advantage of geothermal energies and ancient dungeons. A small counter-revolutionary force known as the Open Hand lives deep within, though the exact location is unknown.
A group of mercenaries and adventurers known as the Delving Dozens operate at the Peak’s foothills, and consistently raid the mountain’s deeps for eldritch weapons and dragon eggs. Their last mission saw the loss of the Dozen’s best leaders, and the group is falling apart at the seams in an internal power struggle.
