You are a member of a military squad of Elturgard and are finishing special training.
His task, and now yours is to keep the Trade Way secure. The Empire of Netheril has been attempting to disrupt trade which would strengthen the empire and weaken the nations dependent on the trade goods.
The setting is forgotten realms, using the default pantheon from PHB. Pelor is a significant deity. The environment will be diverse. Mainly outdoors, then dungeons, and some city. The game starts with the trade way, but will go off focusing more on the war with Netheril.
