Into the Breach
Welcome to Wintersbreach!
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favour’d rage!
Far to the north is a valley beset by mighty mountains, reachable by the living only by a vast sea of frigid roiling waves. The realm has been settled numerous times throughout the ages, but only tenuously, before being swallowed in snow and it’s people scattered by the cruel conditions and necessarily hardy indigenous life, the land returned once more to virginal white. The peoples that are drawn here measure more than even the rich mineral earth can account for, summoned by desire to forge a new destiny in a land unclaimed.
Even now though, in the height of civilisation’s most successful attempt to tame the land, the stars themselves stir and quiver at the lenses of the astrologers, and those that are sensitive to it see the signs of coming darkness. Forces rise, merge and splinter as they feel the power of the valley stirring, vying for a position that will grant them ascension when the days come that the prophecies will be fulfilled.
