We're over a week away from charging cards for the Rise of the Drow: Collector's Edition Kickstarter. 

Occult Secrets of the Underworld was just completed for use in the Fantasy Grounds virtual tabletop and we could add this to the available add-ons in BackerKit as well as ask BackerKit if they can lift the lock for a limited time to allow backers access to snag this. Alternatively, instead of overcomplicating things, we can simply send you a link when Occult Secrets of the Underworld goes live on Fantasy Grounds and Steam.

Which would you prefer?

A. Order Occult Secrets of the Underworld in BackerKit

B. Order Occult Secrets of the Underworld direct from Fantasy Grounds / Steam

We will only initiate option A if over 25 people want it, otherwise, we'll stick with B and share the link here once it is live. 

Please, if you care, post to the Kickstarter comments and choose option A or B. 

Thank you!

Written by the Dominion Faction members.

It was a clear and moonlit night as the Dominion Council of War decided to end the war between themselves and the Bulwark alliance by attacking the surface. Meanwhile, the Outsiders assured the council they would defend Scionsfell if there was any sign of attack.

While the negotiations with the Outsiders took place, some drow prayed to the albino spider to get blessings, some were blessed, others were cursed.

As soon as they made it to the upperworld, they noticed strange things there, such as dancing drow in the moonlight. Even though the fact that dancing for Eilistraee was considered heresy, they decided to keep on their attack. As soon as they reached the upperworld village of Rybalka, everything grew quiet.

At this point, alliances that should have been liquidated earlier turned into betrayal. The council learned that the drow city of Holoth itself was under attack. It was a classic "war on two fronts". On one hand, the alliance between Upperworlders and the Rebels and on the other, the former Outsider alliance. “If they had not done it, we would have done it” was heard among the council. The Dominion army sacked and burned the village of Rybalka in its owners’ absence as the council members teleported back to Holoth.

The council returned to Holoth to help with its defense and held the Upperworlders at bay with spells and ballista fire, but the rebels had made a deal with two houses of Holoth to help overthrow House Gullion and the council. The traitors opened the city gates to the rebels and the drow fought back with fervor. The Outsiders had followed the drow army into the city through a hidden entrance while this unfolded and trapped the Dominion within. The fighting was arduous but several drow victories emboldened the city’s fighters.

In the end, it was a war the drow simply could not win. So, the council gathered itself hastily to make a decision with far-reaching consequences. They informed Matron Maelora of House Gullion that she and her house were now responsible for the fates of Holoth, that the council had planned their last, greatest deception. Each member of the council vowed to pay the price, and the Matron could now enact whatever last-ditch measures she possessed to ensure the success of the Dominion.

Afterward, the members of the council, each of them a noble and powerful drow, driven by their own ideals, fled to Torogrith Tower, while their city was crumbling and falling around them. They sped up the stairs to a great artifact in the form of giant tall crystal, the Vidrefacte, the consumer of souls. Once they reached it, they remained silent and motionless for a moment. Then, as one they drew their weapons and drove them simultaneously into the core while shouting “Naraneus shall never be defeated. Every single living being within Holoth is dead!"

Their weapons and magical power reached the Vidrefacte core. Within the next moment, there was an explosion and blinding light - Holoth and every single invader and drow in it was no more.

If the drow could not win the war, the least they could do was to ensure that nobody else could claim victory either. May Naraneus have mercy on her faithful. The council trusted that from the seeds left planted in Rybalkan soil, the Dominion would rise again.
