The Region Now

     Peace in Damara is far from secure, although the prospects for it seem much more promising. Still, difficult problems face the people of the land. First of all, although it united under Svaern D'Rahng for the strike against the forces of Vaasa, Damara remains divided, inspirit at least. The petty barons and dukes, who tasted power in their pseudo-autonomy under the War Lord of the North, are reluctant to relinquish control of their lands to a single king leading a reunited Damara. Several of them have a claim to the throne left empty when King Virdin was slain, particularly Tranth of Bloodstone and Dimian Ree of Morov. None are of direct descent, however, and the ascension of any claimant would be fraught with uprisings and covert coups. Perhaps Tranth, the former Baron of Bloodstone, has outlined the most popular plan. Rather than returning to the old kingdom, Tranth would like to see a new state formed that encompasses both Vaasa and Damara. The new kingdom would be called Bloodstone, and its first king, Svaern D'Rahng 

At this time, this plan is only a topic of discussion. While retaining full control of the army, Svaern will not even hear of any permanent plans for the region until the business at hand is finished. Still, it seems obvious that the heroes are taken with Tranth's plan. At the very least, they are determined to prevent one of the petty barons from grabbing control. The northern provinces are now under the control of Bloodstone thanks to the swift show of force and a dogged determination to do what are in the regions best interests. 

Although twice defeated, the bandit army has yet to be destroyed. Further more, Vaasa itself remains unconquered by any, and that forsaken land holds many holes filled with goblins, giants and other reminders of the Old Way. Furthermore, two strange events have Svaern and all of his friends worried about the future. First, three flights of dragons reds, blues, and blacks have flown high through Damara and over the Galena Mountains, heading generally in the direction of the ruins of Castle Perilous. It is rumored that a flight of green dragons will soon follow, and thereafter they will all be joined from a huge group of whites from the Great Glacier. The second disquieting situation is that a strange cloud has engulfed the top of Suncatcher Mountain, a tall peak found where the Galenas join the Earthspur range. This cloud seems to defy the winds, for it does not move. Witnesses have said that if the mountain is viewed at the proper angle when the sun is low, the shining spires of an immense castle are clearly visible. Undeniably, the people of Damara still have much to do before the area settles back down.
