Welcome to the Road to Revolution campaign arc; a series of adventures designed for use with the 3.5 version of the world's most popular roleplaying game. Set in the Great City, this epic campaign takes characters from their humble beginnings, all the way to powerful adventurers upon whose actions the City will come to depend. The Campaign Arc contains six adventures in all, each written by the original authors of the Great City Campaign Setting. Arc adventures can be played individually or linked with others in the series to create a complete campaign.
The Usurpers is the fifth adventure in the series, written by Tim Hitchcock.
"Thus it happens in matters of state; for knowing afar off (which it is only given a prudent man to do) the evils that are brewing, they are easily cured. But when, for want of such knowledge, they are allowed to grow so that everyone can recognize them, there is no longer any remedy to be found."
- Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527)
