Welcome to Gollowmere
The history of Gollowmere is short: three years ago the Eldani Empire founded the town on an unknown continent. The Empire began to allow prisoners who were guilty of minor crimes the opportunity to start fresh at Gollowmere, provided they become branded and surrender all other possessions to the Empire. In exchange for helping settle new lands for the Empire, prisoners will be granted a stay of execution and all spoils of exploration unless intervened with by an Imperial agent. Homesteading requires a yearly tithe to the Empire.
For whatever reason, you are such a prisoner. The call of the wild beckons to you, and instead of farming or running a small business you decided to gear yourself up for an adventure to discover the unknown. Residents of Gollowmere tell rumors of ruins, wild beasts, guards keeping their place by vast treasures and other enriching stories.
