The Legend of Mythann: Reborn
Mountainroot is the hometown of the PCs. Not all of them grew up there, but they all spent a significant amount of time there with their friend Jasper. Mountainroot has never been obedient to the will of the Empire, but, lacking any great supply of natural resources, was until recently mostly allowed to keep to itself. However, the nationwide draft reached it even in its seclusion, and the results were catastrophic. After a local uprising against the recruiters, King Malleus responded without mercy, sending a massive attack against the town. Those who stayed were massacred, leaving only the refugees who managed to flee to safety through tunnels in the Drakefang Mountains.
It has since been rebuilt and given the new name “Alida’s Rock.”
