When the gods are banished from the heavens, they must travel through Faerûn in the guise of mortals.

Faerun is an old land, full of long-lost empires and ancient wonders.One after another the great ancient races rose and fell, finally giving rise to the time of humans-the last 3-4 thousand years of history. Even within this epoch, great empires and shining kingdoms have risen and fallen, passing into dust of centuries past, leaving only their cryptic ruins and fell lore behind.
The Heroes of Legend are nearing the end of their reign as protectors of the realm and searching for those that may once carry the fate of us all.
