The Ferdiad Cycle
Little is truly known of the Red Empire. It lies in the distant West across the Khárn Wastelands and is said to be the largest realm of men in all of Drystan. Half-forgotten legends speak of its enormous power and of the countless smaller nations who have been conquered and enslaved by the Visiroths.
Visiroths have only once before come into the east when they clashed against the Ellysians in a titanic war that toppled both of them, ended a Cycle and almost destroyed the land itself. The few texts surviving those times speak of how the Visiroths fanatically throw their lives for their immortal emperor and seem to worship dragons that blacken the skies where ever their armies march.
They have been thought to exist only in myths… until now.
