The world of Ahnmirra is at a turning point.
For all living memory, the known world has been joined in a largely peaceful empire. Trade is good. Magical advances continue. Corruption of government and lords is at a tolerable level; but all is not well.
There are rumors of discontent with the leadership of the Emperors from the western province; rumors growing larger by the day.
Also disturbing are tales of attacks on small hamlets in the southern deltas by strange looking bands of vicious marauders.
Perhaps most disturbing of all is that the Emperor does nothing.
Is Ahnmirra on the brink of another golden age of prosperity, or at the edge of a cataclysm that could consume the world?
