Who will YOU fight for?
~ The Purgatory War ~
Nobody was prepared when the Entropy came.
The old kingdoms of humankind crumbled under the threat, displacing thousands and thousands from their homes. Whole citadels and castles left to fend for themselves in the twisted wild, it seemed that the luck they had during the Inhabitant War ran out.
Queen Kezia II was visited in the night by an ethereal figure, bearing a stone tablet and a pact:
So long as she follows and enforces the laws laid out on the tablet, she and her kingdom shall be granted the strength to drive out the Entropy and restore their homes to the way they once were.
So, she accepted.
Emboldened by purpose and promise, Kezia expanded her domain.
She offered salvation to neighbouring dominions, under the condition that they follow the rules of her sacred stone tablet. The people of these united kingdoms became known as The Palisadeans.
Those who disagreed with the Queen’s cult were cast out from the safety of their consecrated walls and barred from re-entry, if they weren’t outright killed for their heresy.
One such man, an exiled scholar lost deep in the blackened woods of Northern Senterim, had a breakthrough in his research.
With the right tools and attunement… one could manipulate Entropy themselves.
And with this newfound power, he offered protection to the outcasts and pariahs of Palisadean society. He formed settlements deep in the woods, built sturdy forts and humble villages, tamed the beasts of Entropy and named them Kuretines. These outsiders became known as The Hantrii.
However, The Palisadeans continued to expand. With their newfound power, they enacted their ultimate mission; to rid Contrara of Entropy entirely, starting with Senterim.
And The Hantrii, determined to usher in a new world of co-existence with Entropy…
Well… they were in the way.
