The Endless RoadD&D Insider Article
Domains of Dread
by Ari Marmell

When clouds gather and the moon squints like the eye of an old leper, the great length of twisted highway called the Endless Road stretches itself across the face of the world just long enough to take travelers unaware into its grasp. There they wander, perhaps forever, along a road without beginning or end. They might find themselves torn apart by the claws of the hungry dead or the maddened living, enslaved to the man whose vile deeds spawned the Road itself ... or cut down by the headless horror that terrorizes them all. The Endless Road is a domain of dread designed for characters of low paragon (or, if they’re skilled, high heroic) tier.

“Love and Fear—harsh taskmasters both. We dance to their whips on our backs, gallop at their goading. Insipid epics and silly priests would set them at odds, one against the other, but no! They are compatriots, secret conspirators, driving us, their beasts of burden, to darkest deeds.
