Heroes of Defiance

by Steve Miller
Fifth Age, Volume 6


Heroes of Defiance offers background on these heroes and guidelines for playing them in the Dragonlance Fifth Age setting. The handbook in the set, titled Cloak and Dagger, includes:

- Roles for playing bards, guild thieves, kender handlers, rebel elves, and more!
- Guidelines for creating adventures full of intrigue and mystery, as well as an introduction to some of the kingpins of "underground" Ansalon.
- Optional rules for playing gully dwarf heroes and for creating the mysterious personalities and hidden agendas that rogue heroes thrive upon.
- Geographic and historical details on Northern Ergoth, the birthplace of such roguish traditions as bard colleges and thief guilds. Now emerging as the hub of civilization in the Age of Mortals, this unique island is also beautifully presented on a full-color illustrated map.

This set also features Storm Over Krynn, a quest to uncover the truth behind the origin of the terrifying dragonspawn and learn the secrets of the Blue Dragon's latest scheme. Groups can play the adventure as Part Two of the Dragons of a New Age cycle or as a stand-alone scenario. This adventure links with events in the second Fifth Age novel, The Day of the Tempest by Jean Rabe.
