The world of Crayne has always been a dangerous place full of monsters, armies and madmen. From Nortia Damius the Damned One and his legions of Demons to Baron Sonra and his scores of Undead it is difficult for anyone to survive without some strong help and a capable lord to guide them. To top this off there is always some natural or unnatural disaster like the Great Flood or The Tide of Dust waiting to surprise the unwary.
Among all this chaos is you, a local lord, who wishes nothing but to protect your people and prove that you worthy of your position. Or maybe you have more sinister motives and just wish for more power! Unfortunately there are other lords who also want greatness and you have to compete with them. How does a lord survive in a world where everything seems against them? How long will your people continue to respect you with all the constant conflict around them? How far are you willing to go to protect your people?
