The Voyage of the Golden Dragon
The cauldron of the thirteen dragons boils until one of the five beasts fighting over a single bone becomes a thing of desolation.
Desolation spreads over that land like wildfire, like plague, and Eberron bears the scar of it for thirteen cycles of the Battleground.
Life ceases within its bounds,and ash covers the earth.
-The Draconic Prophecy
In the wake of a long and terrible war, a world struggles to find its destiny. Will it descend once more into brutal conflict and end in spectacular annihilation, or will the world emerge at last into a new era of peace and prosperity?
At this moment, a handful of heroes—you and your allies—might hold the fate of the world in their hands. This is a world whose destiny is hidden in the mysterious prophecies of dragons, tempered by powerful magic, and forged in bloody warfare.
The Story of the Golden Dragon
In 993 YK, the Brelish military commissioned a joint endeavor of House Lyrandar, House Medani, and the royal magewrights. Well funded by King Boranel’s coffers. The Golden Dragon was to be the crown jewel of Breland’s armada, and the flagship for a new fleet of airships unlike anything Khorvaire had seen before.
The mammoth project labored on for three years, plagued by setbacks and constant delays. Even before the Golden Dragon’s complicated elemental binding processes were perfected, the Last War was over. The Treaty of Thronehold brought with it new opportunities and prosperity, however. The mighty airship’s half-constructed skeleton wallowed in a private Lyrandar dock in Sharn for another year before a concern of private investors doled out a tidy sum to the Brelish crown to acquire the unfinished warship.
Now, the Golden Dragon is about to embark on a different role in the skies. As a luxury cruise airship, it will tour Khorvaire’s farthest reaches and beyond.
