Its 1003, the Year of the Weeping Widow. It’s been ten years since the Dead War. Said war began with the dead rising and roaming around and then they began to get organized and it began a war of the living against the dead. The dead won. Now it wasn’t the zombie Apocalypse. Currently the major cities and towns are “occupied” by Dead rule. The Lich-King rules everything, King Dreadhaven.
There are 8 major cities; each has its own appointed lieutenant appointed by Dreadhaven. The land is basically a giant island. Imagine the outline of Great Britain but to the size of the US.
