From the campaign website:
“Know you this: Rary, Emperor of the Bright Lands, makes this solemn promise to the crowned heads of the Flanaess - the Bright Desert will bloom once more. When white becomes green, let this be a sign that the Great War for the fate of the Flanaess is close at hand.”
Eliazir Razeem Azam’ut of the Muddled Tongue to a band of adventurers in CY 593
Envoy of the Arcane Court of His Percipient Magnificence, the Archmage Rary, Emperor and Monarch of the Bright Lands
The Bright Lands squat like a fell cancer almost at the very center of the Flanaess and have long been a place of discord and conflict. For centuries the parched flanks of the Abbor-Alz have confined the warring inhabitants to their sun-blasted home. The rise of the traitorous archmage Rary however has thrust the region back into the thoughts of the great and the good of the Flanaess. What fell goal does he now work towards and what does this herald for the rest of the Flanaess?
Not since the fall of ancient Sulm has one man wielded such control over the region and not since the fall of Sulm has that individual’s name been so synonymous with treachery and deceit.
