Acheron, Kingdom of the Refused, is a brand new kingdom established under the rule of Tassan Ardec as a refuge for those with no where else to go. Be they refugees, exiles, expatriates, or simply adventurous settlers, Acheron has a standing “open gate” policy toward anyone and everyone.
While this policy means a steady stream of settlers for his new kingdom, it also means that King Ardec must work tirelessly to enforce his laws in a land made up largely of criminals. This task is relatively simple in the capital, Hearth, but gets steadily more challenging in the outward territories. This is due to the tendency of those who would turn to a life of crime in Acheron to settle down as far from the reach of the law as possible. This has resulted in the southern wilderness (largely unexplored by the government) being rampant with bandits, raiders, and all-around ne’er-do-wells.
This place of hope and freedom for the outcast is your home. Whether you just arrived or you lived here even before Tassan Ardec and his ambition arrived, you are in Acheron and have work to do.
