Welcome to Union.
It has been 10 years after the fall of Kragh the Conquerer in the realm of the Free Marches. Now, hundreds of miles to the East, across the Blackstone Mountains resides the grand city of Union where more darkness dwells.
Your characters will be mercenaries, at least to start with, dependent on the local contractors for good work. Because, let's face it, no one came to Union just to be a shop owner.
