Tenrook is a coastal city that guards the narrow water between the Iron Sea and the Midland Sea. There is a thick chain that blocks the channel, forcing ships to pay an exorbitant toll to pass. At least, that’s the way it used to be.
Today the city can barely feed itself. Its leader, the Prince of Tenrook, has refused to marry Princess Eveningstar. This infuriated the Elf Queen, who cut off grain shipments to Tenrook. In the space of five years, the city’s 500,000 people plummeted to a mere 50,000.
As the people left, the Arch Druid let her magics turn the outer areas of Tenrook into citywilds. Then someone unsealed Axis, the ancient dwarven city beneath Tenrook, and living dungeons started attacking the city.
