Campaign of the Month: August 2012
Kingdoms of Aarda
The Children of Llan are the main inhabitants of the lands of Aarda. They are human and claim to be descended from the great god Llan himself. The evil northern kingdoms of West Antirim, East Antirim and Moravia are generally at war with the southern alliance of Boravia, Glaan and Kron. Other kingdoms include the wild lands of Hibernia and Celtus, the Orc lands of Orcus and the dwarven kingdom of Thraxus. There are two seafaring nations to the far south – Craggland and Kuntari. The inhabitants of these kingdoms know of the existance of Shimring and two groups have been there – a mixed group from the city of Ilanos in Boravia and a group of Drogon (genetically bred humanoids of both flesh and shadow) from the fortress city of Antirim in East Antirim. The victors (and those who claimed the Heart of the Dracolich) were the Ilanos group, and the balance of power in the kingdoms of Aarda has been held by the southern kingdoms for the last 500 years. However, these facts will have no bearing on this campaign.
The main divine factions seems to be between Llan (who sounds very much like Pelor or Ra) and the lichqueen Morav (who sounds very much like, well, like most lichqueens really). These deities will have no influence on this campaign.
