The Kingdoms of Arnor.

Once the land was united under a single banner that stretched from the Jaelric Ocean to the Gossamer Sea bordered. Then the lands of the legendary king Aetheron Varn Dyeend broke with his death.

Three hundred years later, it is the year 517 of the Ancestral Calendar, the realms are fractured. The broken provinces have new kings and queens, forgoing their bonds as noble houses and seeking their own bid for the Lion Throne.

The throne sits empty. In the wastes to the north the shadow stirs, and an ill wind blows from the eastern ocean, within the swamps and crypts evil things stir.
