In the shadow of the Unending Storm
For the past thirty years, Beihua has been subject to near constant rainfall, many days having violent storms. The latent magical disturbances and possible demonic interference, stirs powerful winds and rising waves.
The enduring people of Beihua stretch from the coasts of the Gladian people to those belonging to the Shinkans. Still united even after the falling of the empire that brought the disparate kingdoms together.
Travel is difficult under the storms, so most surviving cities are largely independent, and depending on who you asked many don’t even consider themselves a part of “Beihua.” And indeed, the only uniting power is the queen of the central mountain, her messengers and traders determined enough to brave the watery paths.
