The Dragon Crest campaign is set in the Kingdom of Acadia. Named for the legendary Green Lady, characters explore a realm of danger and excitement where much of the continent is still wild and unsettled. The continent was rediscovered in the late 4th Age by famed explorer Jobere Dupree at the helm of the HRM Courageous. Captain Dupree crossed the fabled Abysmal Sea, a storm swept elemental vortex separating the continent of Koth from what is now Acadia. At first, this discovery was used as a penal colony for the Empire of Koth, ruled by the enigmatic and immortal Kothites. Impossible to distinguish from mere humans, these beings of immense power subjugated their home continent with an iron fist, including erasing knowledge of the history of the world before their rise to power. The newly discovered continent was used as a place to banish those rebels and dissidents that the Kothites decided not to kill or simply erase. Then a few decades ago, the Kothites transformed the penal colony into a full fledged colony of Koth when tremendous natural resources were discovered. Those who sought to gain in position, wealth, opportunity or freedom flocked to the newly created colonies. Imperial Guilds formed to harvest and divide the resources as tribute to Koth. The guards of the former penal colony were made into militia. Houses of the Healing Heart, an organization as old as the Empire of Koth itself, moved in to provide healing and resurrection services to the peoples of the newly formed colony. Soon, unrest began and despite the best efforts of the Kothites, groups banded together under the recently revived Gawaine Valshaer to fight back the tyranny of Koth. Now, the Free Peoples of Acadia fight against the remaining forces of Koth, the Abominations of the Order of the Blood and all sorts of threats while trying to maintain their newly gained freedom and fragile alliances.
