Everyone on the continent could see it, all of Aranor. It marked the end of nearly three decades of war. One day, with their greatest weapon defeated, the dragons simply left.
All of Aranor had been fighting them, their number estimated at around a hundred, but on that day, their numbers were enough to block out the sun. It seemed that many had chosen not to fight, but now all understood that they were no longer wanted.
Some went toward the sunrise, and some toward the sunset; the important thing was that they were gone. The oppression of the dragons had ended, and everyone rejoiced.
Their homes of old, in the south of the continent, were now desolate, destroyed by dragons' breath, and the north remained a much-untamed land. The hero of the war, the Neshobe Rithara, set about forming a new country in the north, where the many kinds could live in peace. A human king was chosen, the White Dragoon—one of her lieutenants and closest friends, though not without the approval of the old order—the Council. Each kind was offered a place, a region they favored in the northern lands—for dwarves, the mountains, for elves, a great forest—but the Ekim declined, preferring a life of solitude among their own, and the nomadic Neshoba as well, wishing to roam freely as always. For three years Rithara set about building a new nation out of the scattered peoples, the coalition that had fought the war. Then, one day, she disappeared entirely, and the new king named the country after her.
Seven more years later..
It is a bright future that the people look ahead to. But the fledgling country is not without its problems. Monsters—hostile creatures which existed long before the war—now multiply without the dragons to control their number, and some who served the dragons, though offered acquittance, refuse to believe they have left for good and still fight on their behalf. The king of Aranor, as some have taken to calling him, looks for willing warriors, veterans of the war with no other place, to help stabilize the country.
A small band forms in Arganthra, a thriving city near the center of Rithara, to answer this call...
