Mortua is a land of the dead. Like many lands in Ravenloft, zombies abound here. This land however, more so than most, swarms with undead in all forms. They stalk the land endlessly doing the bidding of their dark master, Lord Achren Arcanon, the half-lich. It is he who claims rulership of this land… it is he who is thought to be Darklord. He is not. For there is only one true law in Mortua... no one truly rules here.
It is true, the lordship is uncertain. To ask the people of those few unfortunate towns within Mortua’s borders they will simply reply,” The Lord Arcanon is master here.” This does not reveal much, however, for there is another Arcanon who walks within these lands. The child son of Achren Arcanon, Senachren, hides throughout the endless wastelands, under the ever vigilant care of his loyal guardian, Emmette. And it is this boy who prevents Achren from achieving that which he most wants… true mastery.
