To the peoples of the Northern Reach, Asylum is just another sleepy hamlet among a multitude.
Standing at the juncture of two roads north of Sixton, Asylum has faced off against the restless dead, orc brigands, and monsters that have come tumbling out of the wilds.
Despite these many hardships, Asylum has survived thus far to write its footnote on the history of the Northern Reach thanks to the arable farmland that spreads out for miles around the village.
But a drought has plagued Asylum for the last year, leaving the residents mystified as to why it is happening. And townsfolk are now being discovered dead for no apparent reason.
Hard times have just become harder for the residents of Asylum.
