An Endless Winter is Coming…
500 years ago: From the frozen far north, beyond the civilized lands with their rolling hills and forests, arose a mighty army of frost giants, ice devils, Hellfrost dragons, and fearsome orcs, servants all of the ice god Thrym. So began the terrible Blizzard War and the downfall of the mighty empires of man
Today: The races of the southern lands may have won the war, but they suffer its legacy still. For five centuries the winters have grown steadily longer and colder. Huge swathes of the land of Rassilon are permanently covered in ice and snow, and even the temperate lands are not spared the misery of failed harvests, deadly winters, and the dreaded Hellfrost wind.
But winter is not the only danger. A mere 30 years ago, magic, once the civilized races’ most potent weapon, suddenly began to fail. The Siphoning, an effect of unknown origin, has made magic an unpredictable ally.
I do not fear you! I, after all, am her Arcane Highness Mage-Lady Orphelia of the Third Sphere, Scion of House Grimsbourne. I am a Mage of the Magocracy, and I wield the power to destroy cities. If you have heard of me, you know that no shadow can protect you. I encourage you to curb your tongue, and challenge me no more… for I will come and claim all that is yours.
The mists will rise, and an ashen veil will cover the land.
Our reign will last forever.
You cannot hope to defeat us.
In every shadow, a darkness resides.
No comment. ;-)
Great look so far!
We’ll get this up and running in no time. :)
