Surrounded by turmoil, Gran March remains a bastion of strength and law within the Sheldomar Valley. Commandant Magnus Vrianian was re-elected by the nobility to continue leading the nation to glory, despite two successful assassination attempts. The patriotism of its citizens remains strong even with a Hextorite plot to manipulate the country’s politicians. Every day, more of these subversive cultists are being exposed and given the fate they deserve. Two full armies have marched to aid in the liberation of Geoff from the invading giants, over eight thousand soldiers in all. Gran March remains the last staunch ally of the Knights of the Watch, annexing and donating once lawless land to their leadership.
Other great deeds are afoot. Syrloch continues its efforts to unearth archaeological sites related to the Occluded Empire in the Rushmoors and beneath peaceful Shiboleth so that the nation is safe from the minions of the Whispered One. The once volatile Dim Forest is quiet of late after the destruction of a large force of Shadar’kai, the capture of the notorious insurgent Olowyn, and the deaths of his Free Band rebels. The threat posed by the illegal ring of thieves and cutthroats known as The Corporation is all but eliminated as Special Constable Ferrule Garde’s purge of these rogues bears much fruit. Even the communities of the Lortmil Mountains are recovering solidly since an onslaught of mutated humanoids and demons attempted to sack Ander’s Falls and send its people to the Abyss. Tales that an ancient undead servant of Vecna was awakened in the quiet foothills of that range were dismissed as rumor and superstition.
But evil never rests. Former Commandant Petros Gwalchen has returned, bringing with him tales of dark forces gathering against Gran March. Yet, the proud people of Gran March continue to march forward to their destiny. For Commandant and Country!
