Dark Sun: The Scorched World of Athas
The Time of Troubles
In a time long forgotten, three mortal adventurers traveled Faerûn in search of absolute power. First among them was Bane, a feared tyrant who longed for domination over all living things. Then there was Myrkul, a shadowy necromancer who desired control over all undead. Finally, there was Bhaal, an assassin who reveled in murder and the end of all life. In time, these mortals grew powerful enough to confront Jergal, divine bookkeeper of the dead—and the scribe at the end of all life surprisingly stepped aside. He was grateful to be relieved of his duty, and divided his divine domains among them.
