Tal'Dorei Campaign Setting - What’s in the Book?
Hey, I thought I would share a “light on the details” look at what the book covers, I have only had it for a short time and have given it a brief skimming (with a few closer looks when I just couldn’t help myself). It’s a list of the topics and not really spoilery, like who the gods are, what the factions are called, what the character options are, magic items and vestiges etc.
If you want to be totally surprised when you open your copy don’t look under the cut!
The book starts off with a brief history of Exandria, The Calamity, some events far in the history of the game right up to the break Vox Machina took after fighting the Chroma Conclave.
There’s a few tips/secrets not to forget when running a Tal'Dorei Campaign
