Approaching the Battalion requires many things. Not the least of which are these; a strong spirit, an expanse of Drakaise and a will capable of forging a destiny of your own.
We shift our gaze from the southern bulk of the The Fire Giant of the South lighting the summer nights, to the glimmering bulk of The Knotted Snake that can be seen as a faint shimmer in the sky, to the north where the The Frost Giant of the North holds domain. The night sky above Ithungsida glitters with the constellations that define the many gods of The Pantheon. However, our focus will stay in the north. The lands of Ithungsida fill a large portion of the Northern Hemisphere, with only the farthest stretches of the Islands of Esplorzeni approaching the equator. Here lies an expansive country covered with people, cities, and disagreements that stretch for a thousand years. From an Unorthodox Colonization to a Continent Spanning Empire to the Funeral March of Araetule, to the horrors of The Orcish Incursion and now the survivors beyond that. In all of this, the tides of DraKaise have swayed and turned, bringing adventurers as needed to deal with the dangers it presents. Until a few years ago, the shattered remnants of The DraKaise Battalion hid in the Feng Mountains and licked their wounds, yet as dangers have once again found their way to threaten the lands, they have returned to the forefront of public consciousness; with squads dispatched to every corner of the continent to help fend off evil and stave destruction. Even now, as DraKaise swells anew, the forces of evil have begun to surge forth and attempt to topple the careful peace that has held since the Orcish Incursion. Now, the Battalion and it's allies in the many kingdoms must stand against the horrors that seek to destroy civilization and unwrite history.
Do you have that Want, that Will, That “Thirst” for adventure that you can't explain?! Do your family fear that you are DraKaise-Stricken and lost to the world. Do you fear the same? If you answered yes at all, or even wanted to, then the Battalion requests your aid!
What you need to know to understand the world.
The DraKaise Battalion is a world built for/alongside an active D&D 5e Discord Server with DMs that run games in the setting. This means that the Lore is written with a goal of being accessible to three different groups of people; Players interested in making characters that fit into the world, Dungeon Masters that want to run games that make sense in the world, and the errant reader that merely stumbles across it and finds it interesting!
