Set Three

The RPGA magewrights have fired up the forge to produce the third complete set of Campaign Cards for Mark of Heroes set in Eberron. The ten cards in this set were shipped out as part of the D&D Rewards summer mailing. Be sure to enroll in D&D Rewards and receive your share of the bounty.

"“No more talk, filthy beast; this axe sings my final answer.”
-- Menko, warchief of the Guut-Gul clan

Deeply traditional and unflinchingly savage, the orcs are the nomadic and tribal masters of the Shadow Marches. Orc adventurers tend to travel the world either on a sacred duty to protect their tribes or because they are outcasts seeking to regain their honor through glorious deeds.

Benefit: This card unlocks the orc race. Your orc character is from the Shadow Marches. See the Monster Manual for the racial traits of this race. This also unlocks the following rules item Monster items (All RE):

Equipment: Shaders

“I felt the venom’s sting, but still I stood strong.”

“There is sand here, and all around it is mud. Is sand a component to some spell?”

Power and Precision Set 3 Card 7: Creation

"You say I am slow and witless, that may be so, but I am also accurate and deadly, and I think that counts for something.”
