Where Does the Dungeons and Dragons Game Take Place?

Dungeons and Dragons takes place in fantasy worlds like Lord of the Rings, Elves of Shannara, or King Arthur. These worlds are made up by the Dungeon Masters–sometimes from scratch or perhaps with a little help from other Dungeon Masters.

Where will the Dungeons and Dragons game that will begin January 9, 2018 take place? The World of Aloric! An original fantasy-scape created by digital services tech, James. He created the map using an online world generator called donjon, and the rest was generated from his own imagination.

The Ruins of Minas Govi is where the characters start. This city has existed on the brink of desolation for several generations, but now faces its most serious threat: the desert is running dry of water wells.

This is going to send the would-be heroes (played by YOU) on a quest to those who control the waters in the west, the Vampire Lords. However, along for the journey is a goblin raider who tells the tale of five mystical weapons that just might mean the difference between life and death — if the vampires choose to be less than helpful. But can this goblin be trusted?
