An Arrant Knave
A little less than a century ago the world was thrown into chaos when a powerful eruption blew ash across Coralie. When the smoke and ash cleared the world found itself irreparably changed, as a completely unknown phenomenon had appeared where a mountain once stood.
The appearance of a volcano was shocking to the people of Atouin as there had never been one before, but perhaps more shocking was the stream of demonic monsters that came out of those depths. The result was a decade long war, the demons seemed to fight with only one purpose, the extermination of all life, ravaging the continents of the world and forever changing the people. with entire cities and kingdoms razed to dust, merchants found trade perilous and unprofitable. Ports sent to the depths of the oceans made sea travel uncertain. the effort needed to rebuild each persons home prevented the recreation of stable life, and in a world still nursing it’s scars and recovering from devastation, anything is possible.
The end of the war was brought about by the betrayal of a race of lesser demons to their forces. Enslaved for years from wherever it was they came from, the Tieflings realized their chance to free themselves from bondage, and took it, hoping for better treatment than they knew under the demons. The sudden Tiefling uprising shattered the ability for the demons to maintain a command structure, and what had previously been a coordinated effort to subdue Atouin became pockets of unorganized monsters. Given this fighting chance the citizens of Atouin were able to overcome these pockets of demons, and won their battle.
