Heroes of Immoren
The Nightmare Kingdom of Cyrix
In the southward seas of Morradin, lies the island empire of the Cyrix. The Empire of Cyrix is a nation made up of the legions of the undead. These “people” worship Toruk, Rumored to be a deity manifested in the real world, a creature that can destroy towns with his claws and make the dead his legions. The Cyrix are lead to battle by necromancer generals who spread Toruk’s blight and malevolence and life-devouring savagery over all of Immoren.
The jagged, foreboding coastline of Scharde hints at the realm’s true nature– it is a land even more dark and treacherous than it appears. Its inhabitants are fell evil Trollkin, beastly ogres, evil Men, savage Goblins, and warped half-breeds. Dwarves and elves are all but unknown in Cyrix, except perhaps as cowering slaves in the obsidian palaces of the wealthy, or as expensive livestock at the waterfront markets.
The inhabitants of the blighted land all live in fear under the shadow of their ruler, an ancient dragon named Toruk. The Lord of Wyrms, as he is known on the mainland, has utterly dominated his territory for centuries, and his privateers terrorize the western coasts of Morradin and Ord. Toruk is believed to be the oldest dragon in the world, keeping separate from all other dragons in Immoren. He uses his immense size and power to stay personally involved in the politics of his realm, gleefully putting down would-be rebels or rabble-rousers with claws and fire. His royal court is held in a gigantic black stone palace, warmed by the heat of the wounded earth beneath. For now, King Toruk seems content to rule his remote island realm, but everyone fears the day he decides to expand his borders. It is whispered Toruk’s ego knows no bounds and he forces his minions to worship him as a god, forbidding all other religions.
