Gathering of An Army
Once mean farmlands and seas of grass, the land of Skalderna was built within the Eastern Planes of the lands once known as Sancterran. As people flocked to the east during the last Dark War and found that their safe-haven was nothing but myth and rumor, they settled into these lands and developed the planes into small villages and towns. Eventually, the refugees from the west made a home in this land and gave it the name we know today.
A century ago, this was mearly a collection of villages and farms with no order; the only connection between them being the trade roads that ran haphazardly through the grasses. However, with the threat of invasion and decimation from the dark army forces of the south, the people of Skalderna have bound together and turned these lands into a region of people set on a single goal: Survival.
Individual towns and farmhouses came together to form large cities and resources were gathered to fortify these areas. The last couple of generations have seen these lands grow to become a region rivaling even the kingdom of Illdarin in size, though their force and power are still not what they could be, nor what they need to be in order to fend off the armies in the south and west. This generation has turned their hands from rakes and shovels to swords and shields, in an attempt to once and for all free their region from the fear of extinction.
