Oerth has long been a world rife with turmoil wrought by epic forces, and now a plan set in motion eons past culminates with chaos and bloodshed circa CY 623. From the eastern shores of the Solnor ocean, to the fields and forests of the central Flaeness, to the arid wastes left by the Twin Cataclysms, an ancient ritual weaves threads of disparate designs across the land.

Demons and Deities, Avatars and Animus. Heroes, villains, and those which blur such distinctions… this is Greyhawk Awakening.
