Into that Darkness Peering: A Tale of the Lonely Coast
The Rechtmar (“Rightful Kingdom”) is the entirety of the civilized world and all under the wise and good leadership of the High King (“Rechtaid” or “Lawgiver”) Conn Cétchathach. For almost six centuries the collection of thirteen kingdoms has been ruled by The Cétchathach (which means “of the hundred battles”) who have guided the once warring bands to the pinnacle of technology, culture and magic. Peace has reigned in the center kingdoms and only at the edges, where good citizens work tirelessly to expand the empire and bring enlightenment to the barbarians, has strife continued.
The capital city of Dyflinn, in the heart of the Kingdom of Antrim is a marvel of the best mortals have ever achieved. However, very few residents of the Lonely Coast have ever braved the almost thousand mile journey to see it.
There is no civilization beyond the recognized boundaries of The Rechtmar; only barbarians, darkness and death.
