Background

Devil’s Breach is a dark little town on the edge of an empty land, somewhere on the continent of Rûl. The people there don’t have much to offer the world other than the geographic location of their home, which makes it an excellent stopping point for travelers making their way to far-flung locations. Wagon trains used to stop at the town for supplies on their way in and out of the wastes, and the new railroad that goes through town follows the long tradition. Devil’s Breach is a dark little town on the edge of an empty land, somewhere on the continent of Rûl.

Wagon trains used to stop at the town for supplies on their way in and out of the wastes, and the new railroad that goes through town follows the long tradition.

While the wagon train managed to slip through the wastes without drawing too much attention, the loud steam engines belching soot into the sky are another matter entirely and have recently roused a dragon from his slumber in the nearby badlands. The monster makes regular ventures from his lair to prey upon the iron machine, its precious cargo, and its ill-fated passengers.  So far, the dragon has taken out two trains along this desolate stretch of track. The Darksville Railway only has three trains in total. The third leaves from Devil’s Breach tomorrow at dawn.
