No More Heroes
The world is full of aspiring adventurers all wanting to leave their mark in the world. From the Sword Coast to the Hordelands, people live their lives as the creatures of the dark and the flying menaces of the sky continue their daily turmoil. Adventurers make the day to day lives of the commoner more tolerable and the nobler more wealthier as they sponsor their strong guests. And all prosper for it.
There has been no news of towns being overrun or destroyed by vandals in years and only the occasional Umberhulk crawls out of the deeps nowadays. Only the more perilous monsters even try to see the light of day while the others nearly cower in their caves as heroes stand as a barrier that cannot be breached.
Remove the hero and you just have some silly fop standing in a metal coffin.
