Mordheim - Towered City of Shadows
The large region between Mordheim to the north and Astaria to the south is known now as The Wilderlands. It is a vast rolling grasslands region with sporadic forests, smaller bodies of water, and hills. Dozens of ruined castles and watchtowers dot the region, remnants of an era long since past.
Centuries ago the entire region was one of the greatest kingdoms in all of the Realms, the Netherian Empire. Over time, and for reasons unclear, the Netherian Empire fell breaking up into several smaller provinces each independent of the other. This naturally led to wars over territories and resources such that all that really remains here is a sprawling region with no true ruler (although many families in the region lay claim and title over areas). What remains is a lost kingdom turned frontier. Many smaller towns, farms, and hamlets make up the Wilderlands, but the region’s largest city is known as Dusk. It serves as an independent-city state and a major hub of trade for the region.
