What Does 2022 hold for the Storyline

  • Game Year AC 1006 (Level 7) – The start of Rheddrian’s Knight Rivett Inn expansion. Repercussions of encounter to Aegos and discovery of great artefacts. One group here has to experience the rest of the year.
  • Game Year AC 1007 (Level 8) – The Missing Gods, The Tree of Life in peril, Broken Lands united, The Hollow World story, investigating the giants. One group has the missing gods storyline, while another has a time travel adventure up its sleeve.
  • Game Year AC 1008 (Level 9) – Invasion, War in Glantri, War at sea. Three groups have to experience what to expect in the next phase of the game as the build up continues
  • Game Year AC 1009 (Level 10) – War on the horizon and the build up comes to a head and war is declared closing off the second Phase of the storyline. None of the groups have reached this section yet.
  • Game Year AC 1010 (Level 11) – Phase Three Region at War, this takes on a new angle for the storyline as war spreads to the Known World. This may not have all the groups move into this phase, it depends on if the players need a break from the storyline and wish to try something different.
