Legend states that Hubris was created from the fetid corpse of a long-dead god. Hubris is a land of terrible creatures, grand inequality, strange and cruel gods, dangerous magic, opulent nobility, destitute commoners, people that have become corrupted and turned to savage beasts, constant wars, and worse.
The kingdoms are not kind or benevolent: In the Blighted Sands the Klind are slavers and openly practice sorcery, offering sacrifices to their depraved serpentine god, Set. Across the continent the Fairweather kingdom is governed by a corrupt and inbred royal family with the nobility following suit. Esenbar is ruled by a staunch xenophobic theocracy that tolerates little outside of their strict doctrine. The barbaric Ingvar of the Frozen Wastes wage vicious battles against the savage frost giants of The Crag, and care little about the goings on of the world; their life is cut from battle with an axe or sword. The Black Queen rules the citizens of the Floating Island of Terror from her throne of bones and dreams terrible machinations for Hubris. Shadowfall, built in the remains of the burrow of a gigantic worm, is ran by vampires and their thralls, and they welcome all who are devious, vicious and cunning.
In this campaign the characters found themselves in in the Bog wood swamp area after surviving the perils of the sailors of the starless sea. The party was a motley crew of half-demons, mutants, half crazed wizards, town drunks posing as righteous clerics, light fingered thieves, a cyclops, and fur-clad brazen warriors
They rescued missing townsfolk for a fee, only to uncover a demonic slime lord’s retreat and vanquished this unholy. The party lifted a vial on a thought cursed and hidden area of Bogwood swamp gaining much renowned. The adventurers then learned of a plot to upset the balance of power when a frog god cult was about to succeed in releasing their long-forgotten god on the world once more, this proved a difficult task for the party and resulted in the loss of some members in a horrifying adventure into a frog fane.
This campaign is no longer running.

You’re no hero. You’re an adventurer: a reaver, a cutpurse, a heathen-slayer, a tight-lipped warlock guarding long-dead secrets. You seek gold and glory, winning it with sword and spell, caked in the blood and filth of the weak, the dark, the demons, and the vanquished. There are treasures to be won deep underneath, and you shall have them.
