The Folahn Reaches are a catch-all for the uncivilized lands of west of the Kretzera Empire. Protected from Imperial expansion by the fortress city of Konovas, the Reaches are largely outside Imperial influence. Given the harsh environment that covers most of the area, however, the Empire isn’t concerned.
Some people go to the Reaches seeking freedom from perceived tyranny. Most inhabitants, however, go there looking to escape morality. Heretics, slavers, and worse make their home in these lawless lands, free to do whatever they want as long as they have the strength to back it up.
