The land of Ilarion is by no means a safe one. It is a land riddled with cruel kings, unstable nations, greedy merchants, bloodthirsty bandits, religious zealots... And that's just the humans. As nobles plot and scheme in their towers, monsters roam the countryside, orcish tribes raid from the north and east, gnoll bands ambush travellers along the roads and dragons occasionally come down from the mountains to burn down a village.
The year is 638, called that because it has been 638 years since the goddess Laima walked Ilarion (or so the Laimans say).
In Floria, King Branislav I has declared his wish to reunite the kingdoms of Greater Floria and has declared war on the Grand Duchy of Meyerland. The Republic of Maela has come to the defense of Meyerland.
And in Torleif, the war of independence continues against Bláthnata. There are talks in the countries of Velinia as to whether they should support a new Laiman nation, yet only Laima's Territory has given Torleif any support in the form of Velibor Crowns.
