It is the Third Age of Mortals
It is year 298 of the Third Age by the reckoning of the sages – almost 300 years since the Forsaking, when the Gods left the world in fire and devastation. That all seems very distant to you in Laibach however, a small city with its own measure of local problems. The Duke holds power with his thugs but doesn’t spare many thoughts for his citizens. Bandits trouble what little trade comes through town, it’s been years since there was regular traffic with Chalcedon. Now there are rumors that the Orcish tribes to the east are raiding farther afield instead of fighting amongst themselves.
