Threats to the Peace
Not all groups within Tolgalen are friendly to the High Council or to the relative stability of the former empire. Some seek personal gain, some seek death and destruction, and some seek merely to survive, but they are all considered enemies of the free peoples in the kingdoms.
- Dragon-Kind: Mostly eliminated by the jealous and paranoid Empress, dragons are essentially beasts. Very powerful, but possessed of limited intelligence, the dragons and their kin are becoming more common in the wild areas of the world.
- Wild Races: Orcs, Goblinoids, Giants, and Gnolls were the backbone of the Dragon Queens army, and were driven into hiding after her death. There, they have been recovering their strength, sending increasingly frequent raiding parties against the smaller settlements.
