Knights of the Longbox
Fields of Krane
A large swath of the southern desert, the Fields of Krane are where the Cormanthors fought a last, desperate battle against the forces that would purge the elves from the continent millenia ago. Egolas Cormanthor, the general of the elven army, sent noncombatants from the front, hoping to give them a chance to settle in what would become Shiverling while he held off the gathered array of dragons, demons, devils and the armies of the wicked. Calling on all his allies, Egolas was left with few who could fight and resources running low as he held back the hoards. He called upon ancient, powerful magics to keep his army alive. His magics kept his men fighting but now, a millenia later, they won’t stop, with armies of the undead clashing in a land where the rules of magic no longer hold any value.
The fields are guarded by the Vanguards of the Waste, who tirelessly patrol a walled bit of the desert, making sure nothing unholy escapes or enters the region. Still, adventurers, archaeologists and mercenaries attempt to break in regularly, looking for ancient artifacts, magics and relics of the times when elves still controlled the continent.
