Lines in the Sand
The Shadow God Izrador came to Erenland over five millenia ago, if the scholars are to be believed. Ever since his power has waxed and waned and the free folk pushed his orc hordes back to their mountain homes. It was not until The Third War that his forces triumphed and now the land feels the ironclad fist of occupation gripping its people. Only a few strongholds remain though even now they are hard pressed and like to fall. The dwarves in their secret mountain homes and the most secluded of the elven strongholds led by the Witch Queen of the Elves.
