Yemgar Swamp

Yemgar Swamp

– It would be a stretch to call the few who live on the edges of Yemgar Swamp a ‘community’. Separated from the nearest city by The Evergreen, most of those who find themselves living there are only came to run away. Either by setting up tents or small cabins, those who find themselves so far West that they can go no further without a boat have formed a shaky new ‘home’ on the outskirts of a Witch’s property.

Kwame SecondBorneTieflingHunterThere aren’t many places where a tiefling can be completely free from suspicious glances, and the swamps are one of them if only because very few actually live there.

DargovGnomeEscaped ConvictDargov was never exactly kind, even as far as gnomes go, but they never considered themselves a real criminal until trapped in irons.
