Varis: The War of the Brand
An archipelago of islands, large and small, is all that’s left of the ancient Three Kingdoms which once bordered the Umber Bay. The cataclysm separated Varis in two and left the fragments of humanity to cling to the islands for safety.
200 years later, the Umber Sea is a bustling region, reclaimed by humanity and others and the islands are now home to growing kingdoms, fiefs, and city-states. Since the Orc War, the isles of the Umber Sea have known a lasting peace thanks to the Federation of Kingdoms of which most Umber Sea nations are members.
With sea lanes filled with commerce and philosophical and animist traditions taking the place of the vanished gods, only a few lingering political tensions and piracy threaten the region’s stability.
