War of the Burning Sky for 4th ed. announced

Posted on March 5, 2009 by


EN Publishing has announced that their 12 part 3.5 campaign, “War of the Burning Sky” is coming to 4th ed.  They are releasing a hardback of the campaign for 3.5, and with the release of the new GSL they are updating it for 4th ed.

I am excited about this, I’ve read a few of the first few adventures and I like them.  Best of all, they claim that the first 5 modules have already been adapted, so we should be seeing this soon.  WotBS sells via a subscription model, and the price is fairly reasonable at about 50 bucks for 12 adventures.

Here’s their description:                                                                                                         

As the new year turns, the weather across takes a sudden chill turn, and the sky darkens as the grip of winter intensifies. Worry rises as regular channels of communication between nations cease like a candle suddenly snuffed. Slowly, throughout the lands claimed by the Ragesian Empire, rumors spread between isolated villages, traveling by foot and horse and word of mouth — rumors that Drakus Coaltongue, the immortal emperor whose armies conquered every land he set his gaze upon, has fallen in a distant land to the west. How the tyrant was defeated is unknown, but if it is true, everyone knows that a war is coming. The generals of Emperor Coaltongue will strike for control, oppressed peoples will rise up in rebellion, and dangers once held in check only by fear of the mighty warlord will bring doom to the world.

Those in power are preparing for the coming conflict, readying fervent armies and powerful weapons and subtle, deceptive plots, but two questions burn in their minds: who killed the seemingly-immortal Emperor Coaltongue; and what has become of the artifact that would let a man rule of the world? Who has the Torch of the Burning Sky?

E.N. Publishing presents a saga of twelve adventures where would-be conquerers bring the world to the brink of annihilation, and it is up to the heroes to decide who will rule in the aftermath of the great war – perhaps an ally, perhaps themselves, perhaps even anarchy. They can usher the world into a golden age, or let it be scorched under a rain of fire.

Sounds cool!  I can’t wait.  Check it out here.
