Legacy of the Last War
A largely untamed region, the Eldeen Reaches is home to both simple farmers, practitioners of the most primal magic, friendly villagers, and savage tribes. It is a fountain of life, a land where nature, unchecked by the walls of civilization, spreads in all its beautiful—and terrible—glory.
Aundair once claimed much of the Reaches. During the Last War, when Aundair moved its forces farther east and left this region unprotected, the people suffered great depredation at the hands of bandits. The druidic Wardens of the Wood eventually stepped forth to protect the people, and the Reachers angrily proclaimed their independence from Aundair. Today, Thronehold recognizes the Eldeen Reaches as an independent land, although many Aundairians seek to reclaim the territory.
The druids have been the greatest power in the Eldeen Reaches for hundreds of generations. They stand guard against natural threats and warring factions, as well as a vast array of aberrant horrors that lurk in the depths of Eldeen’s woods, spawned by ancient horrors imprisoned there since time immemorial.
