For over a thousand years, the land of Maldarroch has been abandoned. Once upon a time the seafaring Slavards from the Kintore Empire colonized the island. They left their mark by building towns, bridges, castles and of course mines to extract the vast wealth this wild new land had to offer. The Kintorans saw Maldarroch as a place where one went to seek fortune. A great many colonists arrived and built new lives for themselves. The mountains were polluted with bandits, while honest folk inhabited the lowland valleys and river banks.
For a great time this land flourished and yet as if in an instant it was thrown from the heights of its glory into the abyss of death. A greedy noble dared tread into the sacred Barrow of the First, lusting after forgotten relics. In his folly he disturbed the ancients, beings long sealed by the gods and the First. Creatures akin unto man and yet twisted with dark purpose.
It is said that a single man was about to cast off in a boat and reach safety when he spied a small child grasped in the claws of an Ancient. In a moment of valor and bravery he charged the creature and removed its foul appendage with a mighty swing. Tossing the child onto the now sailing boat he turned and faced the Ancients with only his sword. The Valkyries saw his sacrifice and deemed him worthy, and thus the gods smote the land and sealed the Ancients once again. However, all that remained was the ruins of what Maldarroch once was. No man, no child, no human remained.
We know this now because of a priest, who went on a dangerous journey across the sea to find new people for his flock, but stranded on Maldarroch after being blown off course by a storm. He found a mural etched in stone of the events and eventually he found his way home and spread tales of a land rich with gold, animals, all you could ever dream of!
Great lords, merchants, men of the Gods, but of course also less savoury individuals make their way to the island now. Only time will tell what the future holds for Maldarroch.
Will you be brave enough, to rediscover these old lands? What wealth and glory await you?
