Curse of the Crimson Throne
The Immortal Principality of Ustalav is a fog-shrouded realm of countless horrors, and a once-proud realm that was shattered by the clawed hands of the Whispering Tyrant, a lich of incredible power.
The Whispering Tyrant was ultimately defeated nine centuries ago by the followers of Aroden—including the then-mortal Iomedae—and sealed away inside his fortress of Gallowspire, but the lich lord’s evil continues to cast a long shadow over his former realm.
Ustalav today is known as a grim backwater dominated by a bickering collection of Varisian counts, where dark things lurk in the woods and travelers are known to disappear without a trace.
The Knights of Ozem, a Iomedaean order based in neighboring Lastwall, continues to inspect and maintain the bindings on the Whispering Tyrant’s lair, but otherwise do not intervene in the troubled land.
