Travelar: The Darkened Age
The Unbroken Run
A low lying plain of scrub lands, rolling moors, and derelict ruins of a past age – the unbroken run is a monster-infested stride of land that has been uninhabitable since before the Darkened Age.
The land lies in the shadow of the Firestrom Mountains to the north and the only known paths to the Firestrom from Kingdoms such as Tyren pass through these dangerous moors. The daylight hours here are enveloped in a low-lying fog, and the nights on the moors of the Run are said to be haunted by the thousands of spirits that have found their end here. Not many have returned from the Run to tell the tales of what their eyes beheld – stories of entire ghostly armies proceeding across the open fields, phantom horse riders appearing out of wooded vales, and sprawling ruins guarded by obsidian flying spirits. Some say that a maligned Obelisk had been destroyed on the Run many centuries ago, and its fallen corpse has tainted the ground of the Run with its entropy and malaise – giving rise to a monstrous populace.
The only known peoples to inhabit the Run are the Jutts – a tribe of nomadic barbarians that thrive in the ruinous lands – and the Vistani – a mysterious nomadic people that simply seem to appear out of the mists of the Run. Commonly known as Gypsies, the Vistani are rumored to have dangerous mystical powers that originate from a plane beyond the mists.
