A Land United by History
A priestess of the Church of Light kneels in front of a statue of Solea Splendis, patron of mercy, and prays for the good health of her town. Just outside the temple, a feather-haired phoelarch walks back home from the general store ignoring the threatening stares of the others.
In an Aeros casino built right on the Bay of Talons, a tiefling smiles as he wins another round of magaz while onlookers shake their heads thinking the tieflings have enough money as it is. Down the street in the same city, a masked Jack watches members of the Red Rose Guild pick the pockets of unknowing travelers. The Jack will make sure they are brought to justice.
A People Divided by War
Nora has had peace for over thirteen centuries, but that has all shattered with the outbreak of the Severing War. Nora is in need of heroes. Heroes to help stop the battles that rage and claim lives of good men. Heroes to face the monsters that use the war as a perfect distraction for their nefarious ends. Heroes to save the land from itself.
This is the Dawn of a New Age. The Age of Heroes.
Dawn of a New Age (DoNA) is a custom setting for Dungeons and Dragons. It began as a Forgotten Realms clone in the early 00's and has since become its own unique setting. The information presented herein is meant to be the most up to date information as it occurs in game.
