Tarakia is located in a valley nestled between two barbaric civilizations. To the West, past the western mountains, lies a great desert occupied by a somewhat cultish thrikhren
group. To the East of their valley rests a large swamp occupied by a war mongering clan of lizard men. Recently a combined lizard man and thrikhren army rushed into the valley from both directions and attacked the kingdom. The king's army was surprised by the two enemies working together and was defeated after a gallant fight. Although Tyranicus Karakurt
, the leader of the lizard men had seized the valley, his victory was incomplete as king Edmund
escaped capture. Now Tarakia is under martial law as the lizard men search for King Edmund. The only hope for saving the people of Tarakia from this scourge is for a brave group of adventurers to learn what they can in town as well as reach the king before the lizard men. With the information they learn from the king, as well as living through a few battles, they just might be able to reach Tyranicus and rid his evil presence from this beautiful land.
