World in Flames
The marshlands have no real native population, but contain many raw materials useful in working all kinds of magic. As a result, the land is home to many distinct orders of mages. The land is practically dripping with primal arcane power. Unfortunately, that also means that they’re home to many experiments gone horribly wrong. The undead, for instance, were the result of a necromancer’s guild mucking about with forces they couldn’t control. They are just some of the extremely bizarre and horrific creatures to crawl out of the swamps.
