Passage of the Ancient Ones

Laurelin V: Pathfinders of One's Nature

August 5th to 11th in Bethel VT



In the life of a hero, challenges and difficulties are an every day occurrence. Monsters and villains, chaos and politics, leadership and isolation. At any moment, a hero must be ready to fight these battles to ensure their own survival and the advancement of their cause. But sometimes, the most difficult of battles are fought within. Just as they must train for the battlefields of Etheraz with sword and sorcery, they too must train for these inner battles. Thus began the annual tradition of the heroes - to delve within the inner sanctum and face whatever it is that dwells deep within.

This is a marshals end of year graduation event and is open to marshals and invited guests only. All participants at this event receive personalized storylines to specifically advance their character’s development and empower them to pursue the heroic arc they are searching for.
