The Witchfire Trilogy
Far to the southwest in the pirate-infested coastal waters past the Broken Coast of western Cygnar are the countless Scharde Islands. The largest island is the center of the nation of Cryx, which has subjugated these islands and shaped them into a powerful empire. The jagged, foreboding coastline of Scharde only hints at the realm’s true nature, for it is a land even more black and treacherous than it appears. Its inhabitants are fell evil trollkin, beastly ogrun, depraved men, savage goblins, and countless hordes of the undead who are not shunned but actually a privileged upper class often valued more than the living.
The living inhabitants of this blighted land all live in awe of their ruler, an ancient dragon-god named Toruk. The Lord of Wyrms has utterly dominated this territory for over a thousand years. His privateers terrorize the western coasts of Cygnar and Ord. Toruk claims to be the first dragon, and few can dispute it. He rules as an absolute tyrant supported by twelve lich lords, each possessed of fearful powers and limitless patience. Toruk’s ego knows no limits, and He forces His minions to worship Him as a god, forbidding all other religions.
