Fifth Age Krynn
D&D 3e (3.0/3.5) Rules
Krynn has changed a great deal over the ages. Cataclysms have reshaped the continents. Gods no longer fight for control, now the land belongs to the dragons.
The arrival of Malystryx, a great red dragon, was almost as shocking to the lives of the people as the second cataclysm. Malystryx hunted the lesser dragons and fed on their life energy to become stronger. Native dragons did not compete very well, only a few were able to survive the power struggle. One blue, Khellendros(called skie) was the first to master the outland dragons. For reasons one he knows, Skie chose the Vingaard Mountains, Northern Wastes and northeastern plains of Solamnia as his realm. Five dragon overlords got enough power to shape the land as they pleased and bring suffering to the mortals who lived there.
Beryllinthranox the Green:
The elven nation of Qualinesti seceded from Silvanesti more than two thousand years ago, under the visionary Kith-Kanan. The fortress Pax Tharkas(a monument to peace between humans, elves and dwarves) is not far from the New Sea. It now stands as a symbol of hope that someday the people will again be free. South of Pax Tharkas stands Skullcap, once a great tower of sorcery, but ruined when the Evil mage Fistandantilus unleased a magical barrage that melted the stone into the shape of a skull. Powerful items are supposed to still lie in the ruins.
Gellidus the White:
Holds the cities of Daltigoth, Zea harbor, Pontigoth, Qualimori, Silvamore, Foghaven Vale, Castle Eastwatch and the South Sirrion Sea Isles. Inhabbited by elves, ogres, humans, dragon spawn and white dragons. This temperate zone suffers from constant blizzards for most of it and high winds because of the diverse weather system.
Khellendros the Blue:
Holds Coastlund, Elkholm and Hinterlund along with the Northern Wastes, Palanthas, Tanith, high Clerist's Tower and the Vingaard mountains.
Palanthas was ruined by the ocupation of the Knights of Takhisis. It is thought to be strange how Khellendros wanted Palanthas so much, but hardly ever goes there, instead he rules through human agents. The terrain is slowly becoming desert, Skie's favorite climate. Summers are long and winter is not identifiable. Khellendros works very hard on maintaining smooth trade within his realm and for the most part keeps out of the lives of his subjects. The area to the north is known as the Blue wastes. It contains a circle of stones which interest Khellendros and has been known to harbor the blue dragon minions, Khellendros' draconians and some knights of Tekhisis.
Malystryx the Red:
Onysablet the Black:
Steel pieces are used as the basic monetary unit. Steel was in high demand since the second cataclysm and thus became valuable. Gold, which is far too soft for tools or weapons, is only valued for its ornimentation.
1 steel = 2 iron or bronze
