Kor-man'dor. The City of Rubies.
Kor-man'dor. The Capitol of Rudai.
Rudai is an enormous continent, populated with Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes, Humans, Halflings, Half-orcs, Kobolds, and Centaurs. There are also Ogres, Gnolls, Hobgoblins, Goblins, Orcs, Bugbears and Minotaurs, but as they live in the far mountains, they are rarely seen.
Here can be found warriors and spellcasters, thieves and healers. Here are found the good, the evil, the law-abiding and the free-spirited, as well as everything in between.
But all is not well in Rudai. It isn't widely known in the outlying provinces, but Kor-man'dor has been under attack from an unknown force for some time. It comes in the night, taking a single family, and disappearing without a trace. It doesn't always happen on consecutive nights, nor is it able to be predicted with any true accuracy. But, slowly, the population of Kor-man'dor has decreased. Once, the City of Rubies boasted ten thousand men, women and children. But now, over the course of the past three years, the population has now been cut to four thousand.
But, the royal family knows hope now. A soothsayer has spoken a prophecy:
Two with Beast at their Side,
One from Mountain's Peak.
Two full of Homeland's Pride,
One to battle Doom so Bleak.
Heroes six shall fight the Dark,
Heroes six shall dodge Dragon's Breath.
Heroes six shall cry Hark,
Heroes six shall conquer Death.
