Heirs of the Stolen Lands
Choral the Conqueror
Over two-hundred years ago Sir Choral and a band of ragged and worn crusaders and priests arrived in the lands of Brevoy, Osstia, and Rostland. He declared himself king of unified Brevoy, and declared his camp on the shores of Lake Ozal to be his capital, New Stetvin, after a Kyuric city whose nearby ruins remain.
The boyars of northern Brevoy and Osstia reacted peacemeal, and Choral and his knights used superior tactics, equipment, and training to emerge victorious. Finally only the hosts of the boyars of Rostland remained, and marched on New Stetvin. Outnumbered and pinned against the lake, with his new levies routed, Choral strode into the lake and called for his secret ally. Up from the depths emerged Zmey Gorynych a great two-headed dragon, the colour of blood, flame, smoke and charcoal. Zmey Gorynych destroyed the host of Rostland, none escaped the creature’s wrath.
Choral the Conqueror brought the boyars of Brevoy, Osstia, and Rostland to their knees, and began a new order in Brevoy. His reign would last another fifteen years, his family, the House Rogarvia, would rule Brevoy for almost two centuries until Istvan III died without heir several years ago.
