Those who would rule by might and are driven by lust for power have long troubled the Upland Nations. But few have wrought the destruction of that of the Ochre Mask. The man united thugs, pirates, outlaws and some say creatures of darkness, and raised an army that ravaged through the hills and forests, killing and looting with impunity. Though finally defeated at Longdell Ford, he disappeared without a trace. In the long years between, his legacy has been forgotten. But having suffered the blood of loved ones by his sword, you cannot forget his brutal savagery. Now, you have found credible evidence that he is on the mend. Rather than let the region be plunged again into heartless war and suffereing, it is up to you to find him and stop him before it is too late.
