New Faerun is a city built on the vast wealth of treasure plundered from its dungeon. Originally the place was a massive asteroid of adamantine floating in an incredibly small crystal sphere. People wanted to use the place as a base of operations but found that monsters frequently escaped the innards of the asteroid and thus had to call on adventurers to help put them down. The adventurers then discovered the massive labyrinths hidden in the depths of the asteroid and called on other adventurers to help them and formed the first Guilds of New Faerun. From there over time sprouted a city of adventurers and swindlers trading goods and selling knowledge to help each other and themselves delve deeper into the depths of the dungeon.
Still no one has reached the bottom and rumors abound as to what may lay there. Some think a god waits there waiting for a worthy heir. Others say the first to the bottom gets a wish that can bend reality. Still more say that maybe nothing is at the bottom and its the journey that is the true reward… But even they don’t believe that; they just want whatever it is to themselves.
When you arrive in New Faerun you will be greeted at the Port House, also known as the Auction Docks, in Upper New Faerun. Below this are is Lower New Faerun a place of discord and conflict that houses the cities Guilds and merchant quarters. And if go any deeper you’ll find the first of many levels of the dungeon.
