Azluth Campaign Characters
History of Azluth
Azluth is a relatively new country, having only been established about a hundred years ago. A hundred and fifty years ago, the Church of Tethys declared the island of Azluth to be a heretical state and assembled a crusade to cleanse the island in the name of Tethys. At the beginning of their years long crusade, the church easily routed the disorganized and splintered cults of various dark gods. However, in their desperation those cults drew heavily upon the powers of their patrons, and the worshippers of Tethys found themselves embroiled in a battle against devils, demons, outsiders, and undead. As a response, the church dispatched their entire order of paladins to restore order. Upon their arrival, the paladins slowly but surely smashed their way through all resistance. It took them fifty years of hard fighting and many lives, but eventually all traces of heresy were stamped out. The church felt it would be unwise to leave the island in the power vaccuum they had left, and as such claimed the land for themselves. Now the leadership of the Church of Tethys reside in a massive citadel in the center of the island, always watchful for the dark threats they once faced.
