|In the town of Longacre, a place where old Chelish army veterans have settled and where other folk go to slip away from the public eye. Many of the town’s veterans are outspoken in their criticism of House Thrune and Cheliax’s military policies, and have been mistreated, shunned, and driven to Longacre in poverty and effective exile — some have even had their names struck from Cheliax’s military rolls. Their presence makes Longacre a powder keg just waiting for a spark. |
As a reaction to the recent insurgency of the Glorious Reclamation, Her Infernal Majestrix, Queen Abrogail II, has declared martial law in Cheliax’s largest cities and urged all loyal citizens to stand up and do their part to keep the empire strong. She has sent a commandment to loyal subjects in every village, town, and city across the nation:
Reaffirm your loyalty to Thrune and Cheliax and prove your devotion by swearing the Hellfire Compact.You are among those loyal subjects, and now is the time to put down these reckless insurgents...
|Abrogail II, Queen of Cheliax|
