Pentarum is a large island in the vast sea, Oceana Verica. It is rich in diversity and danger but relatively isolated from the rest of the world. Members of every race call it’s shores home. While tensions have been known to flare, relative peace has been maintained by the Saban League, an interracial confederation of powers.

Adventuring on the island of Pentarum has sated you for some time, but you believe your destiny holds greater things. Perhaps your desires are about to be answered. A warlord by the name of Proditio has put out the call. There are indeed riches to be had on the continent of Naxia Minor. And rewards beyond for those strong enough to enlist in his service. His ship, The Datsima, is in port this very moment seeking only the courageous…
