The Great Swamp
History DC 12: The great swamp also known as the Great Grave has been a source of sorrow and torment for eons. It was created when the elder god of flame, Oros was struck down by his son Meloros, due to the son’s jealousy that his father cared for the celestial sun more than his own child. Such was the impact from his fall , that Oros’s body made an indentation in the ground which swallowed him up and made the Great Grave. The tears from the sky godess and the autumn spirits poured out and made the grave a wetland in hopes that life would spring from the corpse of their fallen patron. However the hate of meloros for his father was so great and so great his contempt for the other deities that a curse was placed upon the wetland that death would reign and all life that was allowed to spring forth would be allowed to do so only to be toyed with and stifled by the evil of the swamp.
