About a month ago, a huge force of undead invaded and overran the world before the inhabitants were able to react. They have finally begun to fight back, but communication has been cut off so individual forces don’t know the exact state of the world.
Two half elf siblings, a brother and sister named Caedmon and Leola, command a force of a couple hundred out of the ruins of an old fortified trading center. One day while getting water from the adjacent river they find a man-a human or elf with dragon ancestors-bloodied and unconscious on the riverbank. They take him back to their base to recover. A few hours later he awakens but has amnesia. Caedmon and Leola decide to call him Daegal,”Dweller by the Dark Stream” because they found him on the river bank.
