Nyrond has been devastated by the emotional and monetary costs of war. For many of Nyrond's desperate subjects, banditry ( or other illicit business ) has become a vaible alternative to honest trade. Because the country is so economically drained, heavy fines are favored over imprsionment. Debtors prisons, a new development in law enforcement now dot the countryside.

A recent expedition into the Eastern Abbor-Alz, led by King Lynwerd's cousin, Lady Astra Callistor, vanished without a trace after entering a valley dominated by ancient, abandoned towers. Rumors abound that an illegititmate son of the king has surfaced among witches in the Gnatmarch. If these rumors are true, a struggle for primacy could build in a land that can scarcely afford more troubles.
