It’s been 981 years since the fall of the last true empire. The surviving humans have formed new kingdoms, rediscovered magic, and begun wars anew. The eladrin have reappeared from the Feywild to wage a genocidal war against the native elves, while fighting instability within their own society. The dwarves hide in their mountain fortresses, and under the desert sands, profiting off the fighting of the other races. The warforged, long forgotten by their human creators have found a unified purpose and crusade across the Underdark towards the Far Realm.
The ambitious king Jarles of Delway continues his father’s war against all other human factions, sharing his ancestor’s dream of a new unified human empire. With the aid of his loyal psionics, he has made short work of his neighbour to the east, and now turns attention southwest, and north.
