From his vile throne in the center of a cruel empire bent on nothing less than domination of all the Flanaess, the half-fiend god Iuz watches as the black spokes of his maniacal wheel turn. Wresting control of the Codex of Infinite Planes during the ether creature invasion in 593 CY, his personal attentions have certainly turned to matters beyond his home on the Prime Material.
While he continues his machinations, wicked Bonehearts, generals, and allies in the Old One’s service continue to terrorize and threaten the good-aligned nations that form a bulwark around his blasted and hostile land. In the nation of Perrenland, the people there now fear the return of Iggwilv, the Witch Queen who birthed Iuz and subjugated that land over a hundred years before. In Highfolk, the Vesve is a battleground between Old Wicked’s forces and causes massive upheaval in the elven communities that dwell within. In Furyondy, King Belvor renews his conflict against the forces of Iuz and many vicious battles are fought, draining the men and resources of that proud kingdom. In the Shield Lands, reclamation of their former glory seems halted by a virulent plague spawned by followers of the Old One. In the Bandit Kingdoms, the land is in tumult as folk are manipulated like pawns between various factions vying for power in Iuz’s name.
Bold adventurers with a just purpose are needed to contain the spread of his evil influence and to thwart his plans. Iuz’s ambition knows no bounds; will your resolve to fight against his schemes match it?
