The Unending Night
Over 150 years ago, a fleet of poor humans, mostly women and children, sailed from the Wygrievian city of Baelton to reach a new home on the continent. However, they were blown off course in the Salasar Channel, and they landed on the northwestern peninsula, in a strange, abandoned city of marble and ebony. They occupied the place and named it Morganshold after the woman who captained the voyage. They later met the orcs of the neighboring marshes, who had abandoned the city as cursed many years ago. At first the orcs expected the “Morgans” to succumb to the plague that drove them from the city, but as the new society began to flourish, the marsh orcs considered the Morgans with a reverence that eventually simmered into a friendship and formal alliance. The Morgans are considered an isolationist group. As the other kingdoms and cities vie for control over the central continent, the Morgans have carefully eyed the rise of the zealous Orlandi to the south.
