The city of Marchion was a thriving place, a gateway for trade between civilized and barbarian lands. The humanoid races lived together; if not in harmony, then at least in peace. But now orcish raids have devastated trade, and hard times are turning the races against each other. It's up to a bold group of adventurers to save the city from itself.

Splintered Peace is a political campaign emphasizing both action and intellect, in which the player characters strive to prevent racial tensions from tearting their home apart. This city sourcebook is designed for 8th-level characters with a mix of classes and abilities. It features:

  • A scenario that takes place over the course of months of game time, with 10 extra adventure seeds to use before or after the main adventure, making Marchion a continuing part of your campaign world.
  • Resource management and attitude rules for adjudicating the reaction of each of Marchion's races to the PCs, and the effect the characters' actions have on the tension in the city.
  • Character descriptions for 31 NPCs, including Marchion's mayor, the town council, prominent citizens, and spokespeople for the townsfolk.
  • Eight new local gods, including Masshogu, Mother of All Orcs.
  • A breathtaking two-page map of the city of Marchion, with detailed descriptions of its important locales and major events over the course of the campaign.
Requires the use of the Dungeons & Dragons Player's Handbook, Third Edition, published by Wizards of the Coast.
