You have all been recruited to a street gang by Rolen Ashwater, an enigmatic half elf wizard. The gang is based in Voxhelm, a city on the continent of Umeron. The city is located next to an active volcano, the skies are always full of ash, the streets are blackened by years of soot. Voxhelm is surrounded by barren volcanic wasteland, the only other cities on the continent cling to the coast. The city is ruled by Magleth, a powerful elvish necromancer and her undead army. The general human population is oppressed by the ruling elvish class, most are sent to work in mines on the outskirts of the city. Magic is forbidden to humans, by the elves, anyone seen casting will be arrested by the Enforcers.
