Curse of the Crimson Throne
The burning plains of the Storval Plateau are perhaps the most inhospitable locations in all of Varisia. This wasteland of ash and sand seems an unlikely place to find any life, but it is home to a number of peoples and creatures who brave the emberstorms and heat.
Home to the displaced tribes of the Shoanti, marauding hoards for foul Orks, Giants, and some of the most fierce creatures to be found.
Add to this the poison clouds, flaming eruptions, hot surfer geysers, and the danger of emberstomrs and the ash fall out they leave behind and you begin to see how the harshness of this land that can test the metal of any and all who dare face it.
