Eske, the City of Martyrs and Oracles.
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.|Notes on the DraKaise Battalion.[/quote]
Since before time had substance, there have been the giants celestial, those beings whose very thoughts influence the ripples of DraKaise that span our world. Every philosophy, every kernel of fundamental understanding, every action and consequence can be found as a result of the interactions between these two. From the creation of The Pantheon to the mysteries of the varied terrains of Ithungsida; all are subservient to the whims of the Giants.
They created the world of Arydia after destroying the ones before it. They created The Knotted Snake as an antagonist to them both. They seek that which is ineffable, that which can only be described as the aims of the giants. And we are all but cogs in their eventual conclusions.
Out of Character
The DraKaise Battalion is a world built as an active and evolving D&D 5e setting for 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!
