Working for the Baron
Thousands of years ago the Gods created the lands and the Dragons to care for it. The dragons eventually grew jealous of the gods and fought back. For their arrogance the Gods stripped the dragons of any divine power and banished them to the dark continent they used as a battlefield. The gods meanwhile realized they still needed to care for the land they created had new species created to care for it. They were the mortal races and their land the Mortal Realm. Eventually the dragons saw this as an affront to them and started preparing. They tapped into new sources of power and created mortal races of their own, the most prominent being the dragonborn. They then launched an invasion of the mortal realm. Their many beasts and warriors spread throughout the lands. The mortals had prepared and built strongholds but many were toppled. Some mortals sided with the dragons and some tried to stay neutral. Those who fought on the side of the Gods were blessed and eventually the tide started to turn. The many of the dragonborn, seeing the freedom the mortal races had, betrayed their creators and sided with the Gods. Eventually the dragons were beaten back to the dark continent and haven’t been seen since.
