Brevoy is a land precariously created through the forced alliance of northern Issia and southern Rostland after they were both conquered by Choral the Conqueror. In 4499 the Ioberian warlord Choral Rogarvia entered Issia, where Lord Nikos Surtova brokered a deal where Issia surrendered in return for house Surtova continuing to rule as vassal lords. When the Aldori Swordlords of Rostland tried to resist, they were ambushed in a valley by two great red dragons that destroyed the army.
Choral ruled briefly from the Dragonscale Throne, but soon left, leaving the Rogarvians in charge. They ruled the combined countries as Brevoy. However, in 4699, all the nobles of House Rogarvia vanished without a trace, leaving abandoned manors scattered about the countryside, with no sign of where they had disappeared to. On the same day, the dwarven hold Golushkin cut off all contact with the outside world, as did the observatory Skywatch. Now King Noleski Surtova has declared himself ruler until the return of the Rogarvia, which does not sit well with the Swordlords of Rostland. With their armies mostly massed in the north, there is not much that they can do about it at the moment.
