The Wilderlands of High Weirdness
The Wilderlands are a land in decline, a land with no great kings or nations, just struggling city-states surrounded by enormous stretches of hazardous, unexplored wilderness studded with the ruins of a forgotten, glorious history. Life is nasty, brutish and short for those without the bravery or desperation to set out and grab something better with both hands. There are barbarians, slavers and cults to defeat (or join), ruins to explore, mysteries to uncover, and lands to conquer. The powers of Hell plot and plan underground, and only cold iron keeps capricious, unknowable Faerie at bay. You can grow into legends or die horribly, your stories untold.
