The Realm of the Dead
The peaceful land of Argos has been reduced to shambles. The mighty empires that once covered the land have been reduced to ruins. The people of the land are growing sick and quickly dying off due to the emergence of a new disease. Monsters, especially the undead, have appeared in far greater numbers than before. Strange fountains are popping up that spew a strange arcanic energy, however everyone that has been sent to study the fountains have disappeared. Whether this is because of the arcanic energy or someone doesn’t want the secrets of the fountain to be revealed is unknown.
In the city of Elis exists a supposed prophet spewing things about the end of times and the rise of the Shadow Lord. Most people just ignore it as the ramblings of a crazy old man but he has gained a small group of followers bent on saving the land from the eminent doom called the Knights of Valor.
