Few men ever travel into the Sea of Silt, and for good reason. Horrible creatures, near-unlivable conditions and a wide expanse of impassable quicksand are what make this place feared. But these things also make it the perfect place for a man to escape a life of slavery. Several generations ago, Samuel Peck founded a village of ex-slaves and refugees on a small island within the Sea of Silt. He named the island Liberty. Though the island’s more than one hundred denizens must fight to survive each day, their freedom from the rule of the Sorcerer Kings makes the island a paradise.
Today, those that live on the island have lived there for their entire lives and have little knowledge of life beyond it. Soon, whether they are prepared or not, they will become acquainted with life without Liberty.
