Campaign of the Month: September 2016
Age of Serpents
To its inhabitants, Adar is mostly known as a refuge from the tyranny of Riedra, and many of its residents can trace their lineage to refugees and dissidents of the Riedran state. To this day, Riedra considers Adar a danger to its enforced stability, and regularly sends troops to attack the borders of the region. The region is safeguarded from full-out invasion, however, by the treacherousness of its terrain, the remoteness of its settlements, and the presence of a powerful “shroud” of psionic origin that thwarts all attempts to scry or teleport within. A legendary family of blue dragons, locally referred to as the Storm Guardians, dwell upon the arid, uppermost peaks of central Adar, whom protect the area and its inhabitants for their own inscrutable reasons.
Though there is no formal government in Adar, the communities among the mountains pay respect and generally listen to the counsel of the Speaker of the Word, an ancient spiritual position. They are otherwise unified by cultural similarities and a history of rebuffing the Inspired’s continuous attempts to usurp the land.
