Visitation Upon Aos
Three civilized lands were last there amidst the weird and terrible wildernesses and the apocalyptic ruins of the 776th cycle, the Theusz Hamtaahk', the Cycle Of Hate. Beyond the boundaries of these countries were wastes populated only by savages, uncouth men, phages, mad dwarfs, vile monsters, and murderers.
The northernmost land was cold and cruel hyperborean Thuja, a mountain kingdom of half-mad necromancers, arcane citadels, undead armies, bat winged orinthopters, goblin hordes, demons and the priests of unspeakable, beastly gods. To the south was miasmal, chthonic Ix, the black and bloody desert land of the mummified living God Emperor. In the east, beyond the red wastes of the dead god's decaying rusted bones and the places infested by the draconic and interdimensional Archzeuhl and the vicious Demizeuhl stood the decadent city states of the Jadi and the manses of the arch-magicians in the lush but deadly Po River Valley.
