In the year 1495 the county Vordur was a peaceful and beautiful place. But in 1499 it had changed to a dark, swampy land dominated by two new volcanoes which had sprung up during a devastating earthquake. This was because the land had been annexed by the brutal and power-hungry Lord Barclay. All of the life and fun was taken out of the land; even the trees turned dark. The land was now ruled by the wolves and outlaws, who set up their camps. Lord Barclay was only interested in protecting himself, and left the peasants to their misery.
Eventually the peasants had had enough and crossed a river to the other side of the land, destroying the bridge behind them. Here they formed 2 castles and lived peacefully. Now Lord Barclay became paranoid and defended the villages in the bottom corner of his lands. Now in 1550 Barclay has long gone, the bridge has been rebuilt and the peasants are living in harmony. However there is a rumour that Barclay's son will take over, so you have decided to get there first, and rule your way. Your not the only one however who wants control of this beautiful land.
