Super-heroes have been around for most of the 20th Century, but it wasn’t until the late 80s that they started to get EXTREME! In the 90s, hokey black and white morality, fisticuffs, and colorful costumes are out; moral ambiguity, impractically large weapons, and the paramilitary look are in. To be a super-hero these days, you need attitude, inexplicable anatomy, and a whole buttload of straps and pouches. It’s time to grit your teeth, clench your jaw until that vein in your neck is the size of a firehose, and be a hero!

Qerth is a magical place full of mysterious creatures, ancient wizards, haughty elves, surly dwarves, dimwitted soldiers, sneaky pickpockets, and humble cheese makers. Or at least it was when you went to bed last night When you woke up this morning the world was turned upside down. There were dwarves casting spells and wizards without spellbooks and all kinds of monsters just hanging out at the tavern like they were respectable adventurers and not dungeon dwellers who only exist so you can kill them and take their stuff. You don’t need the old man with the eyepatch to tell you that your next adventure is to figure out what the heck’s going on.
