The Lost Continent
Tempest is a small farming community to the west of the Lower Foothills Mountains. Predominately a settlement of Humans, Elves, and their offspring, the village of Tempest has fallen upon disastrous times. While the land is fertile and bountiful, Tempest lacks the resources to defend its territory.
Named for the storm that destroyed the village some 200 years ago, Tempest is a settlement of survivors and frontiersmen. Those few members of other races tend to be outcasts of their own societies that find the solitude and hard work of the community to be accommodating.
Increasingly over time, new hordes emerge from the mountains or the lowlands. Driven by hatred, fear, or starvation these monsters have become cruel and desperate. Without intervention, the settlement will be abandoned and eventually return to the wilds.
