The Iron Realm.

When all Planes of Existence fall to ash, there is only one realm that remains. The Iron Realm! Before you in all directions, deep in the dark, there lies the maze. The Iron Realm! Millions of miles of corridors, caves, and tunnels without end. This is the ultimate dungeon. Orcs! Goblins! Kobolds! Trolls! Ready your sword, your spells, your crossbow, your Warhammer. The Iron Realm! Keep close your companions, for they are your only hope for survival. Elf. Fighter. Wizard. Cleric. There are no rerolls. There is no way out. Yet here, in the dark, if any of the merciful gods still remain, you may find the strength you need to fight, the cunning you need to hide, and the luck you need to stay alive… just a little longer.

IRON REALM! IRON REALM! IRON REALM!

Get your dice and graph paper - and be sure to bring your friends. I’ll see YOU in the Realm.

There be dragons here.

Summary: What is The Iron Realm?  The goal of the adventure is discussed.  Stats are rolled up for the seven characters: Elf, Wizard, Halfling, Rogue, Fighter, Dwarf, and Cleric.
