Know, brave wanderers, that we live in the dawn of a terrible new age. Our great-grandfathers
speak of an age undreamed of, a shining time of plenty, when the wilderness was
not so wild to us and the earth was our mother who provided all things. That was before
drought and famine set each tribe at the throats of its rivals. Before the sorcerer-slavers came
across the salt-foamed sea from Atlantis and stole a generation of our people, or the Sea
Wolves turned the coast into a red tide of blood and slaughter. Before the Shenites and Skadians
came with their new gods and strange ways, and before we knew the fear of Ruskar
war parties. More ominous still are the dark storm clouds gathering on spiritual horizons.
The spirits were once our guides and allies, but now, with the coming of the mists, terrible
beasts that have no place in a sane world stalk through the otherworldly vapors. Our future
is pregnant with dangers unimagined. Stay awhile and sit by the warmth of the fire, for it
is a wise youth who will listen to what an aging warrior has lived to know.

The Mountain Empire!
The Yaurcoan Empire is a land of mystery to most peoples of the Untamed Lands. Lying far to the south, beyond the Anazi Badlands and the sweltering jungles of the Maztlani Empire, the Yaurcoan Empire rules over the great mountains and cloud wrapped valleys of the mighty Andred Mountains. The Yaurcoa have forged the many disparate peoples of these lands into a great empire that stretches throughout the Andreds. Using their great armies to conquer and their skilled craftsmen to build mighty cities and roads, their empire is the equal of the Maztlani Empire, and is only now coming into its own power. While peaceful at first glance, the Empire has recently weathered a brutal civil war, and numerous factions and peoples vie for power in this patchwork of tribes and culture.
This guide details the many peoples, places, and factions of the Yaurcoan Empire, both for heroes traveling these curious and mysterious lands, and GMs creating stories and epics based here.
Inside this 23 page e-book you will find:
- A detailed look at the regions of the Yaurcoan empire and the people who live there
- New Edges
- New equipment
