Overview

Sargothas is the dreadful menace to the north of The Freelands, and has been so as long as anyone can remember. Occupying the vast majority of the northern quarter of Callendor, Sargothas was to be ruled by The Lich King until his defeat, presumably at the hands of Rivyn. Since, Entad D'lune has taken over the operation, opened a portal to the pits of hell, and has been ruthlessly reorganizing and re-militarising the entire region. Sargothas is currently engaged in a land war with Areah, and conflicts with Xanthia and the paladins guarding The Deadlands happen as often as twice a week.

History

Sargothas (lit. 'North-(Hu)man-Land') is generally believed to be the original homeland of humans on the world of Feanor. Long before the First Age of Calenndor, petty human kingdoms arose and fell, their ruins now long forgotten under the ages. In the First Age, the Humans of Sargothas traded with the nascent Empire of Valdor, and spread throughout the lands known today as the Freelands in the First Human Diaspora.

Sargothas was a province of the Empire of Aractha for most of the Second Age, its climate regulated by the great magics of the Aramágî. The vast plains of Sargothas were transformed into gigantic farms and tracks of pristine wilderness where even the most secretive mages could find refuge. With the destruction of Unath, capital of Aractha in the Great Cataclysm at the end of the Second Age, Sargothas asserted its independance from the crumbling empire.

Today, the great wilderness of Sargothas is all but a memory. The once-rolling green hills and valleys have become no more than a blighted moonscape, dead since the rise of the Lich King at the beginning of the second millennium of the Third Age.
