Old World 2022

The current year is 213 of the Commonalty Calendar. War has ravaged the continent of Faedrun for 14 years. The Syndar Kingdoms, devastated by war and taking the brunt of the initial undead forces, have continued their retreat further north into their territories. Some kingdoms have abandoned their lands and consolidated forces as the undead plague and penitent followers continue to push into the heart of Faedrun. The Grand Alliance is made up of a number of Human and Syndar kingdoms and has stood together for the last 8 years. With its strengths come weaknesses as the different military forces and their leaders continue to try to work together as a cohesive force. The first few years had been costly, but by now enough time has passed that the Grand Alliance has been working together quite well… but the war on Faedrun is beyond the scope of anything anybody had ever imagined.

One of the military forces deployed to the Grand Alliance is the Mushalee Boluk, a “company” of soldiers under the command of the current ranking commander, the Boluk-Bashi. This specialized military unit is made up of soldiers and support personnel that are sent to deal with undead forces that have been able to cross the searing heat of the desert of the May’Kar Dominion. Previously, a large battle was fought after an anomaly had been found in one of the Oasis locations of the May’Kar dominion; a village that was built over a crypt that held the corpses of influential people local to the area. This magical presence was sought after by the Penitent and Undead forces, but was controlled and cleansed entirely with divine energy. Immediately after, the fighting had died down and the Boluk’s forces were stationed in the Oasis as a garrison.

Since then, reinforcements have arrived from the Grand Alliance; specialized troops and squads of Vandregonians, Richtcraig warriors, magic-wielding Syndar of the Kingdom of Tielorrian. However, the Penitent and Undead forces have returned and in greater numbers than before, the strategic importance of this Oasis too valuable for other side to ignore.


Once again the Oasis became the site of brutal and bloody fighting between The Penitent and the Grand Alliance forces. Though this attack on the Oasis saw the forces of the dead arrive with more allies and weapons than their last. A handful of Greater Undead as well as a retinue of Cult of Anguish Blood Mages arrived alongside The Penitent Forces and proved to be a thorn in the side of the Grand Alliance. Through a series of daring missions and massive line battles, both sides found themselves battered and bloodied.

The tenacity with which this oasis was targeted was surprising to some and the sight of Blood Mages running rituals and apparently searching for something left more questions than answers. Though the Alliance forces were able to hold their garrison, they were unable to truly strike a decisive victory and they were unable to capture and question the Blood Mages to learn what they may have been searching for.
