A Perilous Predicament


Everyone knows of Durmur’s sprawling white landscapes and it’s craggy mountains clawing at the blue sky flecked with clouds. Everyone also knows of the sprawling city within the mountain, lit up by the joint efforts of fire and light mages, and the natural crystal formations in every crack and crevice. What most Kyvalorians don’t know, however, is that there is a web of intricate tunnels within Durmur’s many mountains, connecting the peaks and the land below in a complicated patchwork. The dangers that surrounded the beauty of the peaks were present here, too; an ill prepared adventurer could easily be lost in the many similar-looking tunnels, and meet their doom in a dead end lured by the promise of relics. Thus, each well-prepared adventurer often takes two things; a well-stocked pack, and a guide.

It just so happens that you were drafted to be the well-stocked pack. When whispers of an expedition to unearth a relic started echoing off the many walls in Durmur, your ear pricked up at the smell of adventure and a handsome profit. These expeditions were dangerous, and thus well-rewarded, and this one was meant to be a big one. Though you applied with the intent of a much more noble role (a guard perhaps, or even a guide), you got the role of carrying the cart with supplies.

Better than nothing, you thought.

You would curse that thought later when, a few days into the journey, a sudden tremor shook the passage leading to the relic. The guide assured the group that it was nothing out of the ordinary; they were to be proven wrong when another powerful tremor shook the ceiling of the tunnel loose and collapsed down on the group, crashing on top of the cart of supplies, sealing you in and cutting off your well-mapped route back to the heart of Durmur.

Two main options presented themselves; try to dig through the wall of rocks and debris back the way you came. Or explore further down the tunnel into poorly mapped territory. One thing was certain; to remain still would be to invite your own doom.


Draw or write about your character trying to find a way out of the tunnel. Do they explore further down the path, into the winding tunnels and the chamber with the rumoured relic, or do they attempt to brute force their way out?

The First Snowdrop

Even the mountains of Durmur have to thaw eventuall


Though other areas of Kyvalore experience a wider palette of seasons, Durmur appears to always be covered in a thick blanket of snow and sub zero temperatures. However, seasoned locals know how to look out for the passing of the seasons, and will often look out for the first few snowdrops and icespine thistles to signify the arrival of spring. As the snow begins to melt into a more manageable range and flowers begin to push through the sparkling white blanket, the inhabitants of Durmur also emerge from their home in the mountain.

Draw or write about your character enjoying the first days of spring. Do they go out looking for flowers and plants? Do they happily move out of the mountain into an outdoor spring home?
