The Last Empire
The Land of Men between the Eastern Sea and the Greatspine Mountains. Men had lived in this place since before recorded history. Tribes became city states became kingdoms… always marred with war. The feudal kingdoms of Mossberg, Lucene, Alusia and Florens finally united under a single flag and a single emperor. A golden age of peace blossomed for a century of prosperity before the Uruk hordes invaded from the Eastern Sea.
In a single season of blood and fire the Uruks and their allies the Iron Circle burned every proud city of men. The Empire was no more. The kingdoms were no more. The small mountain colony of New Kels is the only remaining vestige of human rule this side of the Eastern Sea.
So it has remained for 50 years.
