the great plains
So you wish to know about the great plains do you? Well, simply put, it is a huge tract of fertile agricultural land roughly 8000 sq miles in size. It’s bordered by the frostwall to the north, the shining mountains to the east, the great ocean to to the west and the desert of Tararna to the south. I don’t really know a lot about what’s beyond those features I’m afraid- you’ll have to ask someone else. The plains themselves However, I am considered quite knowledgeable about. For example, did you know that 1200 years ago there was a great empire that covered the entire plain, but for reasons long forgotten it collapsed and fell into ruin? You can still see many of the ruins today, and some are filled with great treasures. Others are filled with monsters, so I wouldn’t recommend visiting any of these sites- no treasure is worth the risk of some of those ruins. It was the fall of that empire that we use as the basis of our calendar. Nowadays the plains are all occupied by twelve rival kingdoms, who are currently living in a wary peace. Normally, they would fight terrible wars against each other, but 40 years ago the former leader of the great empire rose as a lich lord, and the twelve had to put aside there differences to combat this threat, resulting in a peace treaty, known as the treaty of the plains to be signed. However, a bit of parchment and 40 years of peace isn’t enough to wash away centuries of bloodshed and hatred, and the treaty is in serious danger at the moment.
So which of the twelve kingdoms would you like to know about?
