Down Unther

Plot Synopsis: The year is 1342 DR. You leave your mundane but comfortable life to become a mercenary for the largest trade guild in Faerûn’s greatest Mageocracy. Your first task as a mercenary is to escort cargo on a ship to Unther, but that is only a cover story. Once you arrive in Unther you will disembark and perform an on the ground investigation for ancient sites that may have magic and other secrets your guild will pay handsomely for. You are also informed by your guild that Lauzoril, Zulkir of Enchantment, will pay a little extra if you discreetly lend assistance to the slave class in their uprising against the god king Gilgeam. What exactly is Zulkir Lauzoril planning? Your superiors want to know. You may find allies in the Molhorandi clergy or even the Church of Tiamat who the populace looks to as goodly deities compared to the oppressive god king. There are 10 major government and religious factions with dozens more minor ones to ally with or play against each other while conducting your archaeological exploration mission across Unther. Prepare to go beyond swords and sorcery to the ultimate game of cloak and dagger.
