Brinfair - New Heroes of the Olde Guard
Welcome to Brinfair
For the last 500 years, civilization has been recovering from the oppressive rule of a black dragon named Zelkevar. Zelkevar lived long enough to reach great wyrm status twice; he was at least 2,500 years old when he mysteriously disappeared. No one took credit for his defeat, but the news of his disappearance was brought to the world by the elves. Some say he finally died of old age, others that he ascended to the heavens, being too powerful for this plane of existence. Some whisper that he is merely sleeping, and that he will rise again on the 500th anniversary of his departure; just a few seasons away!
About 900 years ago, explorers from the countries of Yerlin and Glorieux (glor-E-U) on the continent of Yerlin sailed west to escape Zelkevar’s rule. They discovered vast amounts of wild, untamed wilderness. A great migration occurred, and the two countries developed colonies in this new world named Thellinga (thel-ling-ah). It was soon discovered, however, that Zelkevar’s home was on this new continent, deep within Mount Cadmell, the highest mountain on the whole planet. The wily dragon had known the whole time of the humanoid migration to his doorstep, and let them do it just to crush their hope. Zelkevar was indeed king of the world; there was no escape.
