Defenders of Dunbury Castle

Evil Threatens the Borderlands!

Dunbury Castle is threatened by a rising tide of darkness. Bandits stalk the roads, pirates raid boats along the riverways, and the power-hungry Warden Balewick seeks to seize control of the duchy in his mad lust for power. But an even greater threat looms: endrori and other dark creatures are creeping out of the Deeplands, and the sightings grow more frequent every day.

Defenders of Dunbury Castle is a complete adventure setting for your Fifth Edition game. It’s the perfect base of operations for the adventuring party as they make forays into the monster-infested wilderness that lies beyond the castle’s walls. It includes everything a gamemaster needs to support a multi-adventure World of Aetaltis campaign.
