An Unrequested Gift
Welcome to Dryden
A world where religion has been pushed aside in the name of commerce, where magic while acknowledged is hardly glorified. Skill in trade is highly valued, and your ability to utilize the sword is often comparable to your sphere of influence.
Fittingly it is world in which justice is bought and mercy as fleeting as a politicians good intentions. While the country has a central figure Tharios, a leader who seems more concerned with the pursuit of immortality than the unification of the country, only towns who enjoy proximity to resources are afforded formal protection.
