The Unending Night
The first real kingdom declared since the old Nalsurn Empire is both a young and an old one. One year ago, the orcs of the Secura Mountains swarmed down to the plains to retake their ancestral homelands after being displaced by the elves 200 years ago. They easily steamrolled the recent human settlement of Voland, though it was a very wooden settlement, hastily built and easily burnt. The orcs set to work on new keeps and villages and declared an orcish homeland.
In the chaos of the invasion, a strange thing happened in the Secura Mountains, the orcs’ home for the past 200 years. The orcs’ leader, a mysterious figure known only as the Red King, died just as the orcs left and an even more mysterious Archfey power swept in to take dominion of the lands (thanks, past campaign). Though the orcs officially claim the mountains as part of their new kingdom, the land is actually declared a badland and avoided.
