An Ancient Accord is Broken...
Centuries ago, the races of Larnisar banded together to defeat their creator, the Great Dragon, who sought to unmake his creation in a furious, continent-spanning storm of bitter destruction. Victorious, or so they thought, the races of the Accord grew soft and fell back into their familiar ways, political strife and territorial conquests sweeping across the land.
Today, the Accordlands is home to lurking mystery and wonders beyond time. In the Deverenian Empire, dark nobles conspire to bring all under their tyrannical rule, enforcing worship of the very soul of the Great Dragon: the Storm. In the haunted forests, the necromantic Elves are doomed to tragically short lives, all too soon drifting away as dust in the wind. Baraxton is home to what was once a thriving human community, bit its mercenaries now fall victim to the oppressive weight of Northog military might.
