Every one hundred years, a dark curse takes hold of the continent. Fell magic sweeps over the nations, carrying a disease that turns those it slays into a slavering undead horde. Called the Plague Wind, this catastrophe leaves only enough living beings behind to begin the cycle anew a century later. The Plague Wind has become a natural part of the world, like the coming of the tide or the slow turn of the seasons. Civilization lies in shambles, with petty despots building on the ruins of their predecessors.It has been ninety-five years since the last Plague Wind. Some give in to panic while some seek refuge to feeble hope, each praying to survive the harrowing hordes.
