Rise From Dust
For years, the countries of Dracburn and Dorland were at peace. Everything changed when Dracburn’s king mysteriously died. Seemingly overnight, Dracburn militarized and began annexing large chunks of Dorland. Blind-sided, Dorland was unable to build a large enough army to oppose Dracburn until it was too late. Within a year, Dracburn had completely taken over Dorland lands in a near-bloodless victory. The many former members, however, are displeased with the change in leadership, as Dracburn rules their former allies with an iron fist. Militias have been force-ably disbanded, ‘replaced’ by Dracburn army platoons, weapons larger then a dagger are now illegal without a special (and hard to get) permit, non-humans severely curtailed, and the practice of magic has been outlawed unless performed ‘for the good of Dracburn’. Now forced to live as slaves, many non-humans are rumored to have formed a resistance movement, aided by mages, ex-militiamen, and even common criminals.
This campaign uses a homebrew d20 system that is still a work-in-progress.
