Dungeons & Dragons Online Restless Isles Preview

Turbine's official Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach website has been updated with a preview of the Restless Isles outdoor adventure area that will be available in the Twilight Forge module.
Long ago, the Restless Isles were a chain of peaks linked by a labyrinth of tunnels and caverns. This natural fortress was transformed into a war foundry by the ancient lords of Dal Quor in their battle against the giants of Xen'drik. Known as the 'Twilight Forge,' this armory created warforged and other weapons for the cataclysmic war that ultimately ended in defeat for the quori and ruin for the giants.

Thousands of years have passed since then, and the land has been inundated with water from the Thunder Sea. Only the tops of the peaks remain above sea level, but quori-reinforced tunnels continue to link the islands in this mysterious chain. Although the quori are 40,000 years gone, their strange architecture survives. So do the wildmen -- a race of crazed humanoids known nowhere else in Eberron, and presumed to have evolved from servants that the quori left behind.

The players land safely on the Foothold, a tiny island now populated by smugglers and used as a transfer point for priceless artifacts. But the rest of the islands are dominated by an invading race of magic-wielding ogres and their evil masters, as well as enslaved and vicious wildmen. Only a powerful party will survive the challenges of the Restless Isles!
