Wars of the Wastes
This world is slowly dying. The various bastions of civilization struggle for the few fertile regions and resources. The wastes surrounding these regions are inhabited by horrible monsters and savage tribes of barbarians.
In one region two nations battle for dominance. These nations are the Confederacy, a loose affiliation of city-states and the Republic, a state with a strong central government. The need for the sparse resources and the differences between the two have led to many fierce conflicts.
