The Winter Crusade
Daen Druetha: the Abandoned Kingdom
Daen Druetha is considered a myth; a storybook kingdom crafted of gold and magic. The tragedy of Daen Druetha is that there is not an elf left alive who remembers what its streets look like.
The city fell due to civil war two millenia ago. Two of the three houses of wizards of Daen Druetha turned on the Lord Regent. The Lord Regent used every magical defense at his disposal, eventually summoning terrible beasts to fight at his side. They quickly grew out of his control, and ravaged Daen Druetha.
It still stands, somewhere deep in the Mistlands, protected by ancient magics. The Regent and his house sill wander the streets, near-lifeless vestiges of their former noble selves. Their ancient treasures, and the greatest collection of elven magic, all are hidden behind Daen Druetha’s walls.
