Long ago a terrible thing happened, the end of the world…
This unfortunate event happened when dragons, demons, angels and devils returned to the world. Necromancers summoned hoards of undead servants. Cities and castles were destroyed and the world degenerated into chaos.
Decades of war passed before small hamlets of safety were established and small communities could once again hold out against onslaught. Still more decades passed before these communities could grow and prosper under the protection of brave heroes. Eventually the ever raging wars settled into a simmering peace. Leaving the world a dangerous place where death is an everyday concern.
It is in this atmosphere that the Kingdom of Ashwood Vale struggles to assert itself and assure the well-being of its people. The kingdom sits on the knife’s edge of disaster with an ever growing population needing more room to expand and the constant dangers from an untamed wilderness.
