One hundred and ninety-eight years ago the Kingdom of Ash became anathema. The oceans to the west rotted and barred all ship from entering. The southern mountains were shaken by a violent succession of earthquakes making all roads to and from the kingdom impassable. The Northen Plains became stricken with unnatural storms and an eerie fog settled into the Eastern Forest. All attempts to contact Ash’s inhabitants failed. No expedition to the cursed land returned.
Over the years many rumours have circulated regarding the Kingdom’s sudden and mysterious decline. Various religious groups have declared that Ash was involved in blasphemous practices and demanded that the Kingdom be removed from the map.
Ash has sat alone and abandoned by even the darkest of Gods until a few brave souls suddenly, and mysteriously find themselves inside its borders.
