The Moonshae Isles are a cold cluster of rocky islands cloaked in mists and covered in deep woods. It forested hills and shady glens speak of peace and solitude. But tumult and war stalk the islands—the kingdoms of old are under threat from new powers that seek to control the waterlocked lands. Amn’s mercenaries and merchant houses are bent on subjugating the islands, and they’ve made a good start in Snowdown. Since the early 1400s, the Ffolk of Snowdown have been subject to Amnian law and rule from the mainland. Lady Erliza Daressin, the Viceroy of Westphal, rules from Caer Westphal, once the capital of House Kyrmac, royal house of Snowdown. The High King Derid Kendrick is powerless to stop their advances troubled as he is by internal strive and his own ambitions to recover Caer Corwell on the Island of Gwynneth. Meanwhile the isle’s resources are being consumed by Amn at a ferocious rate. One can only hope a band of heroes will rise to protect the liberty and independence of what was once dubbed the “Forgotten Isle”, the most tranquil of all the Moonshae Isles. May be one of them once more claims the title, Laird of Snowdown.
