The Shade Isle Campaign
Desolation of Anarxis
According to the dwarves of Dämmendell, their kingdom once covered the whole north of Shade Isle. Then came the great black dragon, Anarxis, who attacked the dwarves without mercy and destroyed all in his path. The dwarves were forced to retreat south, and the dragon now rules over a burned-out wasteland of charred rock and crumbling ruins.
The dwarves hope to someday slay Anarxis and take their homeland back, but a hundred years have passed since the dragon drove them out of their northern strongholds. To this day, the dwarves remain too few and too weak to risk any attempt at reclaiming the north.
