The Free City of Septentrion is a former city of the Meridian Empire that won its independence more than thirty years ago in a civil war. It now exists as a Republic and controls access to the Western entrance to the Evergreen Shallows. A mountain range, the Evergreen Foothills, separates Septentrion and the Meridian Empire.
20 years ago, a humble farmer, Hadakura, rose to power during the Battle of Tidebreak (read the novella for that story!). The Meridian Empire, formerly a democracy, named him King.
Tidebreak sits on the westernmost border of the Meridian Empire, and it is here that our D&D campaign takes place. Licensed adventurers (that’s you guys) travel the world for the glory of the king (and for gold), facing down and slaying monsters of great power. The Meridian Empire flourishes.
Or so it would seem. Unrest ferments in the Kingdom. The King seems eager to go to war. Some theories abound as to conspiracies involving the King. And yet, he marches on. Septentrion, once a free city, is the most recent to fall under his rule.
What of the mysterious elf Am’li’yala and the circle of trees, a sacrificial site in the woods? Does the Last Sojourn, a Meridian decree for the elderly to march west into the forest, serve a purpose, and if so, for whom? Their life energy is being harvested for some arcane ritual, this much we know, and all signs point to it being important enough to force an alliance between human and elf, but this is of little comfort to the adventurers who know the truth. Perhaps it is even less comforting that nearly half the trees at the sacrificial site have died.
Where we go from here is up to you.
