Disaster has struck the coastal Chindian city of New Octavia.
Alarming news travels south with water-logged merchants and travelers, chilled to the bone and despondent. Following a week of heavy rains, news has revealed that a tidal wave has destroyed much of the city of New Octavia.
With the rebuilding of the capital city of Pretia almost complete, spirits were high in Chindius when the great wave struck. Now the people struggle to survive amid chaos and destruction. Relief efforts have begun but are hampered by strange monstrous creatures which inhabited the area after the waters receded.
A bounty has been offered for any brave enough to face these monsters in combat. Heroes, adventurers, and bounty hunters from all corners of Terath are answering the call.
