Tiamat, goddess queen of evil dragons, has been slain through a combined effort of mortals and gods. The Godswar concluded sixty years ago, and the rebuilding is still in progress. The island city of Refinery was destroyed, and Tiamat's corpse still lies at the heart of the ruins. The body of a dead god still influences everything around it, so it requires constant watch. The College of Magi and the Church of Bahamet are both seeking ways to destroy or to safely contain the body. In the meanwhile, The Vigilant keep a constant watch on the massive corpse to prevent anything from being corrupted by the lingering evil of the five-headed dragon queen. The island sits within an inland sea where the Dwarven Empire, the Elven Collective, and the Gnomish Free States meet. Trade between the lands is maintained by the Windborne Dwarves at sea and by halfling caravans within the Elven lands. All of these peoples are ruled over by their dragon rulers and dragonborn nobility.
