Summer of Dragons
The Magocracy of the Thay is a realm of nightmares, ruled by the necromancer-king Szass Tam and policed by his power-hungry Red Wizards. Though the land is beautiful and green, it thrives only through horrific magical experiments and the brutal mistreatment of thousands of slaves.
Thayan slaves come both from within the magocracy’s borders and from Tymor, its western neighbor. The Red Wizards frequently invade the Khanate’s eastern lands and kidnap Tymorian settlers and farmers, bringing them back to Thay to work for the rest of their short lives. Less fortunate slaves are forcibly subjected to heinous experiments by their sadistic masters.
A rumor has recently swept across Thay that the necromancer-king Szass Tam was poisoned, and has passed away. This rumor has sent the nation into a panic, and ignited dozens of slave revolts across the nation.
