Our lands face constant threat: invaders and opposing forces from hostile Kingdoms never cease in their harassment of our nation.
Yet, brave Heroes time and time again rise up and oppose these forces, beating them back and vanquishing as many of them as possible, before they can once again flee back into the darkness from whence they came.
Today, we face a new threat. A new invader has encroached upon the civilized lands of man, and must be stopped, or else we face the real possibility that our economies become destabilized and our trade ground to a halt.
The Smugglers are here, and the threat that they pose is very dangerous and very real.
As mentioned in the notice posted above, this invader makes a mockery of the law and laughs at the progress that our great realm has achieved. Unlike the barbaric invaders that have threatened us in our past, these invaders are different. They are cunning, they are smart and they have infiltrated our towns, pilfering the goods from our honest merchants and caravans.
All over the lands they can be found, but none more so than around the great forest that surrounds the Eternal Stronghold at the center of each Kingdom.
It is the responsibility of every noble Hero to rise up and oppose this force, lest they corrupt everything that we have fought for. But take notice, great rewards await those who would dare face this violent foe.
As shown above, Legendary crafting materials are in the Smugglers’ possession and are just waiting to be claimed by anyone strong enough to vanquish this parasitic enemy of the lands.
So what are you waiting for? Strap on your armor, sharpen your blades and prepare your steed, for riches await you, and your land needs you once again. Good luck, you will need it.
