Kingdom of the Dead
For centuries the kingdom of Glandos has flourished under the peaceful reign of benevolent monarchs. Across the land, full coffers and productive fields have made life in Glandos blissful for its citizens for as long as anyone can remember.
No living soul can recall a time when life in Glandos was less than idyllic, but there are stories, passed down through the generations; cautionary tales designed to keep the people from growing too comfortable in their easy lives – reminders that life was once hard and sorrow-filled.
After such an extended period of peace, few citizens pay the old legends much heed any longer, growing complacent despite the good intentions of their ancestors. Failing to notice the slowly changing atmosphere the countryside carried on in blissful ignorance of the gathering darkness, until the whispers began.
