Welcome to Hyväkä, a new 5e homebrew world from the mind of dungeon master Dianne Hall. The continent of Sha'oghal in the Age of Atharr is on the brink of change. Since the Land Wars in 82 P.D., that uprooted many gnomes & dwarves in the Orman Valley, forcing them up to live together in Mithjall. The Ghrian Kingdom now has control over most of the land and has enforced a strict pantheon on the people. Worship of any deity outside of the Absolute Thirteen is forbidden, devotion to the Bounded Six is punishable by death. The X'alach Dynasty, who was granted the northeastern corner of the continent during the Territory Treaty of 83 P.D., has since started expanding downwards into the Underdark. Mithjall, stuck in the middle, has stayed neutral, focusing on propelling technology forward to gain leverage in their ties with either territory. Now we come to the year 798 P.D., the maiden voyage of the Steam Forge Rail is due to arrive in Athcross the 4th day of Miemìos. With most of the cars packed, chaos unleashes when the engineer is attacked by Steam Mephits, bringing together an unlikely group. They will need to act fast to gain control of the train before it crashes. Join these adventurers while they unlock the secrets of the elements and seek their victories.
Every Monday at 5:30 PST / 8:30 EST starting October 19th.

Taryn is an aspiring professional nerd and an all-around creative mind. She grew up in the barren region that is the Texas panhandle, which led her to dream of far-off, fantastical lands and develop an avid imagination, longing for adventure. From a young age, gaming and nerd culture were her escape from the daily woes of life. As she made the journey into adulthood, Taryn spent much of her free time writing short fiction and drawing or painting. In college, she studied paleontology and environmental science, but eventually returned to her love for the arts. She enjoys applying her science background to the worlds she creates in D&D and other tabletop RPG’s. D&D has become her central passion in recent years, and has proven to be a fantastic creative outlet, as well as a tool for mental wellness. She now spends her time writing for D&D campaigns, crafting terrain, making dice (to feed her addiction), and gaming with her chosen family. If she isn’t gaming or creating, Taryn is relaxing with her husband, daughter, and multiple fur babies.
