The Chronicles of Ballidrous is structured like a collection of books to tell the stories of heroic adventurers. Each book offers multiple storylines that advance with their chapters. The storylines follow a chronological order for that series of adventures and supports the changes in the surrounding world. They also set the stage for other adventures and provide new material in that region. The gamemaster also has the option to switch to another storyline if they wish to change the pace or to experience another theme within the campaign setting.
