The Domain of Slaye
In the days of the dying earth, the rightful ruler of Cil has returned to the throne with the aid of a potent magical amulet. Slaye, master of demons, now rules the lands where the decadent house of Domber formerly held sway. The quasi-independent lords of the surrounding region must accustom themselves to a stronger master or raise the flag of rebellion. And deep within the great forests of the north, the goblin kings — and stranger things — conspire toward their own ends.
Outside the towns and villages, the ruins of fallen kingdoms litter the countryside. A few still hold ancient treasures, while others shelter bloodthirsty monstrosities or desperate outlaws. Most contain only dust.
Against this troubled background, fortune-hunters of many stripes strive for personal gain despite the ever-present possibility of an ignominious death.
