The Temple of the Serpents lay under stone for a long while during Chamenos' reign - and because of his dark influence, the powers of chaos have awoken something buried far deeper beneath the rubble and ruin. A shadow rises and begins to rebuild, harkening to times long lost to history's fraying weave.
Tales of children disappearing spread like fire across Vystriana. From everywhere, whispers of some unnamed shadow stealing away boys and girls come. And not only is Felnova's leading country affected; roc hatchlings from Alubria, deathcat cubs from Nimravus, and avian children from Stroen'na have also been reported.
Beneath all of this, unrest simmers beneath the surface of Vystriana's many peoples. The Faction of Hope gathers momentum as more eyes turn to watch the draconic royalty, weighing their faults and weaknesses. Tensions seem ready to burst; but as yet, they've stayed silent.
