The Stubborn Heroes

The Stubborn Heroes is a podcast in which a group of friends play the fantasy role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons, set in a custom world of Varian. The series also includes background music and occasional ambient sound effects.

The World of Varian has a rich and bountiful history of heroic triumphs, and great calamity. A world besieged by the endless wars between Light and Dark.

3500 years have passed since the Dragon Empire fell, during which time the Realm has seen great prosperity and Growth across all three continents. The Elves - refugees from a shattered world, had retreated to their tranquil forests in Ettinvale to rebuild their lost dynasty. The Dwarves in Valkir erected cavernous cities of metal and stone which sprout out of their snow covered mountain peaks. While the Humans in Chandar opened free trade with the Realm. Their ingenuity and diverse nature made them comfortable and strategic partners with most races.

But peace could not last forever. The Lotus Plague - a terrible blight that kills without mercy spread into Elven lands until infecting the City of Garamond, where Dwarven Prince Thronn Shattermaul had been a diplomat. The Elves moved in without mercy, quelling the City and its citizens in order to contain the outbreak.

40 years have passed since the death of the Dwarven heir which marked the beginning of the War of Tears. As old hatreds between the two races now reach a boiling point, word has spread of other threats rising across the Realm, both new and ancient…

Welcome to Varian…
