The last candle of light before the vast darkness which sweeps to the east, Dariond stands as the first line of defense against those who would attempt to topple the kingdom of Taldaren. Recently however this light has begun to flicker as the plots to extinguish it altogether have begun to reach fruition.
In a bold attempt to drive off the last hope of resistance criminal elements executed a series of attacks on adventurer taverns. These attacks were almost successful, however one party of adventurers were able not only to survive but to strike back with bloody vengeance leaving a trail of dead in their wake.
These criminal organisations were large and these early skirmishes merely severed their extremities. Glimpsing the extent of the threat the heroes shifted their gaze ever higher, aiming their strikes at the core of those who oppose them.
