Birthright Campaign Setting
A king stands in the high turret of his castle¸ squinting at the distant hills. He can just make out the figures of his troops engaging the enemy in battle. As a damp breeze whips at his cloak¸ he comtemplates the war. He has culled the best generals¸ captains¸ and troops from his land. His court wizard wields powers that unnerve even the most seasoned warriors. Can the forces he commands hold the enemy at bay? Or will the king awake at dawn to the pounding of battering rams and showers of deadly arrows? From the tower¸ the battle is impossible to judge. The ruler twists the royal signet ring on his finger nervously. Then¸ a ragged messenger races up the stair behind him¸ clutching a stained parchment. 'Word from the general¸ your majesty¸' he pants. The king takes the message in trembling fingers and slowly reads.... Experience the thrill of playing rulers of legend who command mighty armies and wield the power of kingdoms!
