Once a great empire like its sister nation Mulhorand, Unther fell far under the rule of the cruel manifestation of the deity Gilgeam. With Gilgeam’s death at the claws of Tiamat, Unther was plunged into chaos. Slaves rebelled, commoners rejoiced at the death of the tyrant, and clerics of Gilgeam and nobles struggled to maintain invading southern Unther and placing conquered areas under matial law.
Unther became divided between those who clung to the old ways and those who hoped the pharaoh of Mulhorand would treat them better than their old ruler did. Unther was a land of opportunity, where military force, diplomacy, subterfuge, and intrigue all played a part in survival and power.
