Luartha is a country torn by war. Hobgoblins and their goblin slaves swarm up from the south, clashing with the human sorcerers from the Enlightened Empire and elven fighters from the Moon-Sea States and bathing the fertile earth in blood. The war has raged for nigh on four years, and in the past few months the hobgoblins have pushed back the defenders. The halflings and gnomes of Luartha continue their struggle, but there are whispers that something is moving within the Enlightened Empire and the sorcerers of the Empire have been arriving in fewer waves.
But amidst the fighting, lives and trade continues and there are always opportunities for hardy and enterprising adventurers who might want some gold.
