The characters are one of the most exciting parts of the Edge of Eventide Dramatic Campaign. Their design is integral to the plot, their back story is the story of the campaign. This means that I can also include rules and new game material pertinent to each individual character. As we get ever closer to the first release, I am hoping to show off some of that material, giving you a sense of what you can expect from the Edge of Eventide.
First off, I am giving you a look at Leylinia, the elven cleric in the group. One of the things that makes her so special is that she is a that she is from a new subrace of elves, the Cenasar. The Cenasar are elves who share a bond with the passing seasons, gaining special abilities and resistances based on the time of year. This bond even influences their appearance. Looking at Leylinia, for example, it is pretty apparent that the first adventure is set in autumn.

As we get ever closer to the release of the first adventure in the Edge of Eventide dramatic campaign, I want to give you a closer look at the player characters, starting with the art!
Lance Red has done an amazing job with these characters, using both their physical description and some information about their personality and backstory to create these illustrations. For example, Renmar and Leylinia are happily married and you can see elements of their bond in their gear. Renmar even keep a charm bearing Leylinia’s holy symbol on his bow. Little touches like this are what make these characters truly special.
Help Me Decide Who to Show off First!
The illustrations above are the black and white under-paintings of these characters, whereas the finals will be in glorious color. That is where you come in. I can’t decide which one to show off first. So I want you to tell me which one of these characters you are most excited about. From left to right, they are Valtirus, Faultier, Caeth, Leylinia, Renmar, and Karwyn.

Six flawed heroes set out to complete a quest started long ago. A quest that they failed. A quest that cost them the life of a dear friend. That dreadful day ended their fellowship, scattering their number. While some left to find their fortune, others ran to forget their past. Only the pact remained. A pact to reunite to make amends for their failure. A pact to meet again at the Edge of Eventide.
