Zeland is a country dominated by a lich who calls himself the Lord of Sloth. Nearby countries have only been able to repel him from dominating their lands and can do nothing to stop the power of the lich as he subverts all under his control. p. The Lord of Sloth declared himself to be the ruler of Zeland under the darkness. Followers of this darkness took control of all temples worshiping traditional gods and slaughtered the clerics, priests and worshipers. p. With the destruction of temples it is inevitable the wrath of the gods will fall upon these worshipers of darkness.
