Medran, a dragonborn warrior, leaves his home village and goes to explore the nearby ruins of the ancient Arkhosian empire. He hopes to one-day revive its glory. He finds a ruined temple and quickly locates a stairway that leads down from the floor level. He finds himself walking down a wide hallway when he triggers a trap that shoots spears at him. He is wounded, but continues. Eventually, he comes to a small room that begins to give off a strange vibration after the only door in or out slams shut. Once the vibration stops, Medran leaves the room to find himself in a different part of the dungeon. He opens the door to yet another room and comes face to face with a giant spitting cobra. The snakes first spitting-attack misses, and Medran immediately strikes a killing blow. No sooner has the beast fallen dead than a party of adventurers comes striding into the room. How will they react to the dragonborn they see before them?
